Normally a nice one in a posh hotel was just for tourists or special occasions.
But thanks to groupon and other voucher websites us mere mortals can now enjoy the indulgence for a much more reasonable price.
Pre-baby my sister got us a voucher for a chocolate themed afternoon tea at The Hilton.
The little sandwiches were delicate and mouth watering.
The little cakes and treats were really fun and shaped like butterflies, lollipops and candy floss.
We just about finished it all - or at least had a taste of each of the delights.
My favourite sweet treat were the chocolate chip scones with chocolate spread.
Although just the plain scone with clotted cream and jam was pretty delicious. Sometimes the simplest things are the best...
We washed it all down with some extra special peppermint tea.
Now as I am bleary eyed from night feeds and alone time or indulgent treats are seeming like a distant memory I am glad to have this layout to remember that special day out by.
