Afternoon Tea Parties

I have recently been to some scrumptious Tea Parties in London.

 At the Milestone, a 5-star boutique hotel  overlooking Kensington Palace and Gardens, we said farewell to Lynne in style with champagne and tea in this lovely black and white observatory.  This was my own tower of gluten free goodies!

We will miss Lynne and her "British Historical Fiction Book Club" meetings whenever she was in town. The discussion was always lively, but not necessarily historical!

The annual AWC Founder's Day event this year was a Mad Hatter Tea Party at Dartmouth House on Charles Street near Green Park.

The bidding for auction items was competitive and everyone looked lovely in afternoon dress and hats!  My favorite was this Boston cap to honor those who were at the Boston Marathon just days before. 

And yesterday, we said farewell to Lynda London with an Afternoon Tea at the Pelham Hotel in South Kensington.  She is one of those ladies who has only been here for a few years but you feel as though you have known her your whole life.  Her smile always lights up a room!

As I look back through these photos, I notice that there is not much "Tea" drinking going on.  No wonder we enjoy our Afternoon Tea Parties so much!
