Afternoon Tea At The Ritz

Hey Everyone...

Can you believe that title! Yes, on my birthday I was treated to afternoon tea at THE RITZ! The one and only! My gorgeous fiance organised a celebration champagne afternoon tea for us at 7.30pm!

I have walked past this beautiful hotel many a time, and now it is a landmark in my weekly commute! I never thought I would get to go inside...

The infamous sign...

Inside.... it took my breath away! It was like a palace! Stunning, beautiful, decadent, classic...

We were seated in the stunning palm court, a raised area with beautiful mirrored walls and marble steps, off of the main concourse of the hotel...

And the afternoon tea - Oh the afternoon tea! What can I say!? It was perfection...

Made extra special with a glass of champagne!

And made magical with the opulent surroundings...

Endless tea, special vegetarian sandwiches for me, hot from the oven scones, and delectable patisserie!

They bring out the scones, only when you're ready for them, so they are lovely and warm!

The miniature cakes were delicious, but we were so full we couldn't finish them...

Then the piece de resistance! 

My very own birthday cake...

Complete with 'Happy Birthday' played by the quartet, a candle and a personal iced message!

Boxed up to take home with us... we couldn't have eaten a crumb more!

We even had a creme caramel type dessert and then a dessert trolley - I couldn't even finish this slice of delicious Bakewell tart!

Although I did finish the most scrumptious macaroon I have ever tasted!

It really was the most PERFECT birthday ever!

Thank you Andrew!
I do not deserve you!

Love Jewel xXx
