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
