    A few years ago some girlfriends and I splashed out and went to The Ritz for tea. One of those "want to do it once" occasions.

    I seem to remember two "courses", first of all there was plate after plate of delicate and delicious sarnies - very thin roast beef, smoked salmon, yes - cucumber, not sure what else, very thin bread, no crusts.

    The second "course" were the smallest, prettiest cream cakes you could wish for - only two bites big (or one if you were being piggy!).

    For some delicious and pretty recipes, have a look at Hannah's blog - she was a finalist on Masterchef a couple of series back.

    All washed down with endless pots of tea - and don't forget your nicest china (or raid the local charity shop if you want to buy something gently old-fashioned and floral) cloth napkins, pretty flowers on the table and some gentle Mozart in the background (unless you can stretch to a tame piano player in the corner ). Yes I know this is 9 year-old boys but why not?

    Yes, by 'proper' I mean posh.
    I need to inject some English culture into the little French savages!!!!

    so;

    Cuecumber sandwiches
    Egg sandwiches (they call them oeuf mimosa here)
    fairy cakes
    scones (err............)
    victoria sponge.
    pot of real tea (not just a bag of floor shavings in a cup).

    wicker basket and tartan rug.

    add a pass-the-parcel and they wont know what has hit them!!!!!!

    Good old English trifle? And musical chairs and blind man's buff and pin the tail on the donkey and tag (or he as we called it) Hope you've got lots of room for the little froggie sprogs to expend all that energy in before they sit down to a very refined English event!! I wish you heartfelt luck. I'm sure it will be an event to remember.
