Flying visit to London ( Afternoon tea at the Berkeley)

I absolutely love London and when I got an invite to the Berkeley’s legendary designer afternoon tea I was ridiculously excited .

Served in their Collin’s room they offer mouth watering delicacies with a fashionista twist ( think edible mulberry handbags and biscuit designer shoes)

 All served with Laurent Perrier champagne and of course…. Tea.

Arriving in London at 8.30am I had a bit of time to spare and so popped to some of my favourite London Instagram locations ( read my top 10 London Insta spots here) .. A diversion to Bond Street station I popped out to Wild things flowers and it didn’t disappoint.

An Anthropology visit later and after a spot of lunch and a outfit change , Anna, Rachael and I were ready to hit the Berkeley.

Arriving at the Berkley it was fab to meet the lovely Sally, Elle, Charlotte and Cara.. They are all even nicer in real life.

It was a tad surreal and almost like stepping into my Instagram stories for the day.

A few cocktails later and all nerves were gone and it was like i’d known them for years..I spent so much time talking and laughing that I’ve hardly any photos to show for it. Always happens!

The Pret- a- Portea started with an explanation from our server, an extensive tea menu and a glass of champagne .

After a touch of mingling time our fashion fancies arrived, and don’t they look fab.

Edible Gucci bretons, Charlotte Olympia high kicking banana biscuits and an Emillio Pucci juicy jumpsuits.. They were almost too good to eat.. Almost!

I cannot recommend The Berkeley afternoon tea enough, to make your reservation you can book on this link .
Thank you to this lovely group of ladies who were all so kind , friendly and gracious.. I need not have been nervous  .. No airs and graces with this lot.. Just a warm welcome and a lot of laughs!
