Afternoon Tea

Theo, one of my girls, is here these days visiting from SFO. Yay!! I love some girls time and on Saturday we are going to enjoy an afternoon of traditional High Tea. We did it last time Theo was here, but back then I wasn't on my finest so this time I'm planning to FULLY enjoy it! We are going at the Palm Court in the Langham Hotel. I guess it's not the obvious choice but after doing a bit of research I found out that The Langham had gone under an exquisite refurbishment and their high tea afternoon won the Top London Afternoon Tea 2010 award by the Tea Guild. I'm really excited because the hotel and tea room look amazing! 












oh and the tea menu is called Wonderland Afternoon Tea! Fabulous?

  13. I wish I could join you! The hotel and tea room looks lovely. I have always wanted to do high tea at the Drake Hotel here in Chicago and have always seemed to miss it for 5:00 cocktails!
