The High Tea Party, Sofitel, Melbourne


Last Saturday, Kamilla, Irena and I headed off to The High Tea Party at the Sofitel in Melbourne.

One of the event sponsors was Royal Albert China, who had this gorgeous display of tea party crockery at the door:


We had goodie bags on our chairs full of samples and vouchers on arrival, and there was a lovely mini bottle of Prosecco for each guest.

 Once we were seated, our tea tray arrived:


There were mini desserts:


and scones and mini quiche:


and ribbon sandwiches:


My favourite was the scones, served with jam and cream:


The crockery was Miranda Kerr by Royal Albert - isn't the tea cup pretty:


The tea was bottomless but I could only manage two cups.

Here we are at our table waiting to be served:



There was also entertainment by jazz singer Emma Pask (from The Voice Australia), and two fashion parades - one by Leona Edmiston and the other by a lingerie house.

Outside, there was a seemingly endless array of stalls selling everything from jewellery to chocolates to vodka.

It was a great opportunity to catch up with my friends and enjoy some great food and entertainment.

Sounds like the perfect time with friends! I'd love to sample so many of these treats with my tea :)

I love "teas", morning or afternoon. It looks very delightful and I love the cups and saucers.

Has Miranda Kerr branched into crockery design now? Funny :-) Brand aside, the crockery and the food both look extremely pretty!

Gaye, goodness, this looks like a fabulous event! I would love to attend a "Tea Party" such as this one - the treats look delightful and it sounds as if there were a lot of wonderful things to enjoy and look at as well!
