Although this was only the weekend just gone by, I wanted to get this posted quickly, so that you didn’t miss out on the Royal Baby Shower Afternoon Tea, if you were interested. Its ending really soon and it was too good for you to miss. All about that just below, honestly have a scroll down because the food, ambience, service and setting was just beautiful. But in usual Inthefrow layout, what did I wear that day?
I’ve got some gorgeous new pieces from the ASOS holiday collection, including some beaut new Steve Madden sandals in a cool snake print and this pretty white crochet dress. The shirt dress, which I wore open as a light jacket is from Hush, a brand you really should check out as I adore everything they sell. For accessories, the glasses are Taylor Morris and Im so in love with their shape and grey tortoise shell pattern. And of course, the Celine Box Bag dupe which you can find them at Jcos Studios. And because I thought a lot of you might be interested in buying one, in a choice of lots of colours in calfskin leather, I’ve set up a discount code of 10% using Inthefrow10. I got mine in Burgundy, but theres a classic black and lots of others to choose from! But seriously, how gorgeous is it if you’re after Celine style on a tighter budget?!
After a little lounging around Hyde Park with my bestie Steph from Eat Travel Love, we headed over to the Sheraton Park Lane Hotel and their Palm Court Cafe for an afternoon tea in aid of the Royal Baby. Whilst Princess Charlotte has already been born, the idea of this is adorable, and will be available until May 31st!
We started with a glass of bubbles and also indulged in the mocktail, mixing peanut butter, yoghurt and banana for such a tasty milkshake. Napkins were folded on the table with blue and pink pins, which before the birth of the baby girl, would have been such a sweet idea. We loved these little touches throughout the experience. We tucked into the cutest tiny panini which was absolutely delicious, with hazelnut chocolate, goats cheese and fig inside, alongside chicken, salmon and gammon sandwiches. But the best part for me was probably the green pea panna-cotta with asparagus which was so beautiful. The whole plate was perfect.
After the sandwiches came the stacked afternoon tea plates, with star shaped fruit and plain scones and a variety of sweet treats. All in baby shapes of course. A polenta cake pram, a grapefruit mousse inside a chocolate baby dummy, a vanilla panna-cotta in a little glass jar and an alphabet block with orange cake inside. So delicious and just the sweetest idea I’ve ever seen. For a friend who might be recently pregnant, this would be such a wonderful place to bring them along to. The Afternoon Tea costs £45 per person, set within such a beautiful environment and accompanied by impeccable service. We were also seated next to the Harp player, which just made the experience even more relaxing and wonderful. I could not recommend the experience more. I will absolutely be bringing my mum here as soon as an opportunity arises!
Such a wonderful weekend with one of my oldest and best friends in the world. Don’t know what I’d do without this lady. Go have a peek at her gorgeous travel blog and leave her some love :) And thank you for reading! Any thoughts on the Royal Baby Shower Afternoon Tea, or even just for visiting the Palm Court for their classic afternoon tea any time soon? Or have you already been? Let me know!
