Afternoon Tea


We all love an afternoon tea, especially us British folk! After all, when your born in England your family is given a teacup to celebrate the birth of yet another tea drinker* To celebrate my birth rights, my boyfriend's mum bought me an afternoon tea session at the gorgeous 'The Elms' at Abberley Hotel for my birthday earlier in the year. At the weekend I cashed in my voucher and bought another, so I could sit in the sunshine and gossip with my Nan, Mum and Sister.



I wore a cute tea dress with floral print and statement necklace, both from New Look. The dress is so flattering and I have had so many compliments on the necklace, including two people asking me where it was from when I was in New Look!

 Look at those! 



The afternoon tea consisted of proper tea, so leaves (they were more like balls though?) and a mini sieve, finger sandwiches and so much cake. It all tasted amazing and the surroundings of the hotel are beautiful! Not bad for £30 for huh? (£15 for two).

You can get the details here (it's the Whitley Afternoon Tea), if you are in the Worcestershire area I would definitely recommend. I'm already going back with my friends, but adding a few glasses of champagne, naughty!


*not necessarily true, I may have made that up (the Americans will love this though - shhh)
