Afternoon Tea At Villandry

Afternoon Tea At Villandry

When you combine two of my favourite things – afternoon tea and flower arranging it makes me very happy, and it seems that Villandry have discovered that this makes other people happy as well and have teamed up with their in-house florists, Moyses Stevens to host a flower masterclass followed by one of their delicious afternoon teas. 

Costing £53 per person, you get expert tuition to create a gorgeous floral bouquet, which of course you get to take home with you, followed by afternoon tea. I went down to their Great Portland Street cafe to try my hand at flower arranging, which is fast becoming a passion, before putting their afternoon tea to the test.

Afternoon Tea At Ham Yard Hotel With Olivia Rubin

Afternoon tea is an ultimate favourite activity of mine, if you like cream teas, beautiful cakes and tiny sandwiches then I have loads of places that you should check out, and one place I’ve wanted to go and try since it opened had to be the Ham Yard Hotel in Soho, London. So I was so pleased when the uber talented and super sweet Olivia Rubin invited some of her favourite peeps to see her new Atelier collection while having a spot of afternoon tea.

Sofitel St James – ‘Le Tea en Rose’ Afternoon Tea

Sofitel St James – ‘Le Tea en Rose’ Afternoon Tea

It’s been a while since I featured an afternoon tea on the blog and as one of my favourite activities it was so nice to rectify that with a review of this year’s Chelsea Flower Show inspired afternoon tea, ‘Le Tea en Rose’ at the Sofitel St James in Piccadilly, London. 

The location of this hotel is a big hit, just a stone’s throw away from some of London’s most recognisable landmarks including Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus, it makes it a great spot to enjoy afternoon tea and recharge your batteries in-between sightseeing, plus the tea is set in The Rose Lounge, wonderfully kitsch, beautifully pink, with a lovely Parisian feel to it.

Afternoon Tea: The Park Lane Hotel – Wedding Dresses

Afternoon Tea: The Park Lane Hotel – Wedding Dresses

I love Art Deco architecture and fashion, so when The Park Lane Hotel in London got in touch to ask me to review their exciting new collaboration with the V&A for their Wedding Dresses exhibition I couldn’t say no, especially when I heard it was a special afternoon tea inspired by wedding fashion.

Created by The Park Lane Hotel’s Pastry Chef, Sarah Hartnett, the Wedding Dresses Afternoon Tea is a real treat that starts with ‘Tuxedo’ strawberries, which look as gorgeous as they taste, and a glass of Moët & Chandon Champagne to get you into the wedding spirit, while sitting comfortably in the Palm Court lounge of the hotel, I think I could have sat on that sofa all-day long.
