MODERN MANNERS MONDAY -
AFTERNOON TEA RULES
No forks! If food is too big to serve without a fork - then don’t serve it.
Only leave spreaders for jam and cream on the table.
There isn’t a use for a fork during the entire afternoon tea service. It’s strictly a knife and spoon affair.
HOW TO EAT A SCONE PROPERLY - Scones are meant to be eaten with your fingers. The best method is to use your hands to break apart the scone into bite-size pieces. Don’t pre-break the scones, instead take pieces as you go and spread the jam and cream on each piece.
