I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Victoria is taking the opportunity to host an afternoon tea to introduce her family to her new pet.

IN the West, you're supposed to bring the saucer up with the tea, just under the cup, as you sip at it. There should be a separate saucer, a dessert dish, for cookies or cake or toast or sandwiches.  Proper ladies in days of old knew that--maybe that's why the lady on the far lift looks unhappy. BTW, the saucer under the cup at all times is the rule. It keeps you from spilling tea or coffee on the tablecloth or on yourself. How embarrassing that would be! Maybe it would be a disaster for a lady wearing such fancy, complicated apparel !

But it's absolutely normal to have an octopus serving the scones. And the ladies should appreciate that he Otto can multitask!

By the way dear, you might want to get your cup under that teapot...now!
this is beyond adorable.

Being served by an Octopus must have a learning curve. All those arms working together must have a wibbly wavy movement to them when they handle things- like the slosh and movement of the ocean :la:

Haha amazing idea with the more "classic"(plain) stuffy old aristocratic ladies. It's a cool balance between them and the crazy more extreme(deviant even) Otto and Victoria :P

This is so adorable! :happybounce: I love the contrast between the ladies on the left's dresses (very conservative and "proper") to Victoria's dress. (More skin showing and a less conservative neckline) It matches her personality. Also, I really want Victoria's hat. :XD:
