Tea of the week: Benja Harvey

I've been fascinated with paper engineers ever since I worked at a publishers (I love pop-up books such as this quirky Alice in Wonderland) - so, it's no surprise I love this afternoon tea by Sydney-based Benja Harvey. Isn't it amazing? I'm especially fond of the cucumber sandwiches and the lemon slices.

It is utterly perfect. I had to double look at the 'slices' on the top tier!

Wow. Aren't they fantastic! Cohen has a wonderful pop up Moby Dick book. My sister brought it for him from the gallery store in Brisbane. It is so amazing. And I would tell you the name of the artist if Cohen weren't asleep in the same room as said book. :)

So sweet! It must take loads of patients to put these things together.

This is brilliant. I love all the childrens wooden tea sets that are about right now too.

I have to agree with you over the delightful lemon slices!
