Miss Cavendish – and no doubt Jolly – had created an enchanting setting for a tea party. An assortment of little tables had been brought out and laid with lace cloths, an elaborate silver tea service, as well as a staggering assortment of sweets and cakes and sandwiches heaped on porcelain plates. There were bowls of jam and sugar and little candies dotted here and there, and petals dropped from the trees like silken confetti spangling the grass.
