Tea for Two (or Five)

This past weekend, a few girlfriends and I headed over to The Mayflower Hotel for a little Royal Tea celebration. What better way to spend Valentines' Day than with tea sandwiches, a little bubbly and sensational women. Tea is served everyday in the Cafe Promenade, a stunning room with muraled walls and sparkling chandeliers. If feels like a lux, relaxing, eastern garden. Here are a couple photos from the hotel's website.

This is the main chandelier and on the day we were there the round booth was filled with mothers and young daughters having tea with their dolls.

Royal Tea includes a personal silver tray of yummy sandwiches and sweets, including one of the best scones I've had in a long time.
Some of the best tea companions ever, Ann and Nathalie enjoy their champagne before the tea service begins.
We were lucky enough to share our table with a special little lady who was having tea for the first time. Annie enjoyed clinking her chocolate milk cup with our champagne flutes and sampling all of the cookies on the tea tray.
My grandmother's vintage clutch made an appearance as well and made tea time feel all that much more royal.
Sara and daughter Annie, myself, Nathalie and Ann had a wonderful afternoon.
