Puttin' On The Ritz!

Photobucket

So. London can be MAGIC. One of the great traditions for style and elegance here in the UK is High Tea. Tiny sandwiches, cakes, scones and... tea (or coffee, if you prefer)! For Christmas, I bought my mother in law a trip to The Ritz for a luxurious afternoon of Champagne and High Tea in the illustrious "Palm Court".

I had to book THREE months in advance and it was super pricey... BUT - as a Christmas gift and a treat - it was wonderful and very much "worth" the money paid. The tiny features were astounding too - this is the TOP of one of the little macarroons!

There is a strict dress code for Afternoon Tea at the Ritz - with men having to wear a suit and tie... Jeans and trainers are strictly prohibited! I went for simple, classic style - in a City Chic Dot Dress, Blazer, Stockings and Heels. Makeup was kept simple and nothing was too overt.

Would you like to see a super cheesy photo of me with a glass of champagne?

It really was a magic and SPECIAL experience. If you're coming to London and want to do something decadent and beautiful and wonderful - I highly recommend this! Meanwhile - SCONES!!!
