Afternoon tea at a grand hotel has become a hugely popular birthday treat and is not complete without fine sandwiches, scones and cream and gorgeous cakes.

No need to go to a hotel, though – one can do the same thing at home. Set the scene with a traditional ceramic cakestand from The French House (pictured, £42.50) which has a useful other life holding cheese, fruit or anything else you care to put on it.
