You might have read my earlier post about an Afternoon tea we did at the Park Hyatt, Saigon? Well we actually did another afternoon tea, this time at the hotel we were staying at in Ho Chi Minh City, Hotel Des Arts, Saigon.
One of the places we loved whilst visiting Ho Chi Minh City was The Park Hyatt, Saigon. It is such a beautiful setting for afternoon tea, with its shimmering chandeliers and beautiful floral arrangements. Id say it was a very simple and elegant affair, and I was so pleased that I could add this to my ever growing collection ofafternoon teas around the world.
I have wanted to visit the Ritz Paris for afternoon tea for quite some time now, so I was delighted when my husband surprised me with a reservation for my birthday. If you have followed me for a while now, you'll know that not only am I obsessed with Afternoon tea but with my favourite city too, Paris!
Christmas, to me is about celebrating with friends and making time to appreciate each other. So we get some of our favorites together, and have a Christmas soiree. This year we hosted an afternoon tea.
During our festive trip to Edinburgh, we stopped by The Balmoral hotel for afternoon tea at the Palm court. Festive afternoon teas are a tradition for for us and we are always looking to try new one's. This would be my first Scottish afternoon tea... how exciting!
We have been lucky enough to enjoy Afternoon Tea at Claridge's before, but not for Festive afternoon tea. So, When it came to deciding on which festive Afternoon Tea to do next as is our annual tradition, we decided on the world famous and oh so gorgeous Claridge's.
Of course, as soon as we decided we were going to Lisbon I began to research afternoons tea options (have you seen my afternoon teas around the world page?)and when I set eyes on The four seasons Lisbon I was sold immediately. It certainly stood among the others promising a beautiful setting and cakes to die for.
My first ever afternoon tea in Rome, was taken at non other than the glorious St.Regis Roma
I have a little confession to make. While planning our trip (it was actually a last minute decision) my husband gave me the choice of the St.Regis or the hotel we actually stayed at. And when we walked into the St.Regis, I instantly regretted my decision
What a beautiful and elegant hotel! I am so glad we got to visit, even if it wasn't as residents.
Murano chandeliers and Belle Epouque details, the Caelum bar is such a glamorous backdrop for an afternoon tea
Place your order with the tea Sommelier from a range by Dammann Frères.
In case your not sure how long to wait for your tea is perfectly brewed, you are given a custom timer. Genius
And sit back and wait for the delicious treats to roll in
All of the afternoon tea favourites are here, Finger sandwiches, warm scones with clotted cream and jam. And even though very they are very simple in design, they were truly delicious.
The smell of freshly baked scones really does something to an English girl
And how about the striking sapphire blue library? I could picture myself here for days... Those restored Venetian mirrors though!
One of our beloved Christmas traditions is our annual trip to London to shop for presents and get our Christmas vibe on. London is such a special place at Christmas, and really puts you in the Christmas spirit.
Today I get to share one of my favourite afternoons teas. The incredibly stylish and cosy Nimb Copenhagen.
