Morrisons has launched an afternoon tea delivery box packed with everything you need to put together your own lockdown tea party, in celebration of the 75th anniversary of VE day. 

In lockdown, food has become an even more essential part of day-to-day life. With more time on our hands and a fully-stocked kitchen mere metres away from our desks, we’re having fun experimenting with new recipes and indulging in some well-deserved treats.

From banana bread to chocolate brownies and cinnamon buns, it’s safe to say we’re looking on the sweeter side of life a little bit more than we usually would. So when we heard that Morrisons is now delivering afternoon tea boxes – stocked with clotted cream, jam, scones and a chocolate fudge cake – we were intrigued.

The boxes, which are available to buy online now, have been created to allow people to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE day from the comfort of their own homes on Friday.

Priced at £15, the box contains everything you’ll need to put on an afternoon tea party for you and your household. 

So what’s inside? Alongside the classic clotted cream, jam and scones, there’s also ingredients to make sandwiches for two, perfect for those of us looking for a savoury option. On top of all this, you’ll of course also receive ingredients to make the all-important tea, as well as a box of lemon bakewell tarts, a Belgian chocolate fudge cake and some champagne truffles.

Morrisons' Afternoon Tea for Two set has everything you need to host an at-home tea party.

The best bit? You can order a box for yourself or send one to someone who’s self-isolating, vulnerable or elderly, making it super easy to brighten someone’s day. 

Of course, sending an afternoon tea set to a friend or family member isn’t the only way to show someone you’re thinking of them during this difficult time. In fact, care packages and postal gifts are becoming our go-to way to reach out to those we love during lockdown.

If you’re an avid Stylist fan, you’ll know it’s not always possible to find an issue of our magazine. Often they’re gone before you head into work (they disappear fast!), or you live in a part of the UK where you can’t get your hands on a copy. Add to this the fact that millions of us are not commuting right now, and we wanted to ensure you don’t miss out on the magazine any longer.

Which is why we’re delighted to let you know that Stylist magazine is now available in a digital format, both for Apple and Android users, allowing you to download the full magazine directly to your smartphone or tablet, wherever you may be.

Pricing for our digital magazine starts at just 99p for a single issue, or £21.99 for a full year’s subscription –that’s less than 50p a week! Simply click on the link to activate your Stylist app download from either the Apple store or Google Play and enjoy!
