Afternoon Tea with a twist!

Prêt-à-Portea at The Berkeley is designed to add a creative twist to the classic elements of the traditional English afternoon tea with cakes and pastries inspired by the latest fashion season's catwalk designs for the style conscious (who me?). It may not be the quintessential English afternoon tea but who cares? It's fabulous darling!

Do you recognize......
Victoria Beckham peach coloured sponge cake tote with chocolate crocodile print
Marc Jacobs raspberry and lychee cream jumpsuit with over-sized chocolate flower belt
Miu Miu vanilla bikini biscuit with navy icing and signature white bow
Tory Burch strawberry and rhubarb bavarois dress with flattering gold button detail
Prada summer dress of papaya, red currant and blueberry mousse, topped with pate de frui
Jil Sander coloured block dress of crème de menthe and coconut jelly with must-have sparkly sunglasses

All served on fine-bone china by Paul Smith, complete with handbag take away boxes......
And one little chocolate for Rick ..... fabulous darling!

This must have been a really fun afternoon--sort of a thinking "outside the box" experience.
