Lets have tea!

Afternoon tea used to be an established event in any ladies diary and I feel that now we do it far too infrequently! Plus if tea looks like this (below) can you think of any possible excuse why not?!

Designer inspired tea at ‘Pret a Portea’ at The Berkeley in London. Valentino Coat styled biscuits, Christian Louboutin inspired biscuits, Smythson Bag cakes, Alexander Mcqueen Fromage Blanc, YSL honeycomb and Christian Dior mousse. What more could you possibly want at 4pm in the afternoon?

(Except of course also having the real things next to your tea table in lovely big bags, ready to take home and wear that night out in London!)

P.S I just discovered, after posting, that one of my favourite blogs also posted about this cafe this week too! A coincidence that made me smile and she has a great video. Check it out here: http://www.thefacelessblog.com/2010/10/london-fashion-cafe-pret-portea.html

    If I can have them for the, then yes. I love my tea time during the long months of winter.

  5. This place looks so cute! I love having afternoon tea. I’ve been to a few bridal showers that were teas, which was such a fun idea. I’d love to have my girlfriends over for tea and cookies soon. Thanks for the idea!


  6. When do we meet? I’ve been using these pictures in quite a few moodboards (for clients), hoping somebody would pick up the hint and fly me to London for some nice tea (as an inspiration trip 😉 ). Love the idea of bags full of fresh clothes and shoes standing next to the table, when we’re there!
