Add a finishing touch with Jennifer’s Cutlery - Review

Whether you are hosting an afternoon tea or just coffee and cake for family or friends. It can be the small things, the attention to detail, that makes a difference. 
Antique Cutlery 

I confess to having a small collection of antique teaspoons, tea and butter knives and a vintage style cake slice and spoons for serving those important dollops of cream and jam on warm scones. They usually always receive a compliment or two.

My rather special cutlery tray
Now I know you are thinking antique equals expensive. It can be pricey but the key is looking for the small pieces in sterling silver or silver plate, just as pretty and practical but at an affordable price.

Do not have an antiques shop near you? Or maybe you are a little anxious about going into one. Fear no more you can shop from the comfort of your armchair at Jennifer’s Cutlery. Jennifer has been an antique dealer for 30 years and for the last 5 years took the decision to concentrate on tableware and cutlery.

Affordable silver cutlery
You can buy a set of 1950's silver plated cake forks from just £10 or a cake slice from £7.50, which includes free delivery. I did spot some gorgeous English Silver and Mother of Pearl tea knives £155 or a stainless silver version still with mother of pearl handles £39. Both complete with a velvet lined case – there is something sumptuous about silver nestled in a velvet lined case.
Silver spoons - can you see the owls?
My items arrived gift wrapped in tissue paper and fabric ribbon, adding to the excitement of receiving and unveiling them.

Do treat yourself or gift to a friend, some special cutlery. But do remember one important thing, to use them. Do not save them for those extra special occasions that happen to infrequently, use them to make any impromptu tea and cake - special.

I was kindly sent some antique cutlery for the purposes of this review, all opinions expressed are my own.
