A few weeks ago I was invited by Nuffnang to attend a chocolate High Tea for fashion and food bloggers at the Aria Bar and Lounge at the Langham Hotel.

I’m not really a fashion or a food blogger but they couldn’t hold a High Tea without me so off James and I trundled across the river to be social!

The place was just spectacular! I felt slightly out of place in somewhere so fancy XD

I couldn’t believe how many other bloggers turned up! Everyone was so lovely and it was great to put faces to a lot of blogs that I read. I hope we can stay in touch 😀

I didn’t think that it could get much better than that but then my partner in crime Grace from Living Footprintsarrived in her regular hilarious manner and we had an absolute ball having non-high-tea-appropriate conversations!

I’m no food blogger so let me do my best here… there were delicious finger sandwiches, scones, endless tea/coffee/hot chocolate and you are going to drool over the best part…

The decor was impeccable and everything was themed in Alice style.

We got to meet the head pastry chef Markus Bohm and let me tell you, he is awesome at his job!

He even made us personal chocolate and passion fruit souffles!

I did my nails especially for the occasion with little macaron stickers that Leanne at The Fashionate Traveler sent me! I also did an effect to make them look as if they were dipped in chocolate…

It was almost too cute to eat but they were all too delicious not to!

I had such a lovely time meeting new bloggers who (as soon as we get the net switched on at home) I will definitely be catching up with again soon!

Seriously though check out that strawberry thing in front, it’s actually called “Strawberry chocolate Vacherin with Elderberry cream” and it is one of the best things I’ve ever tasted.

It’s kind of cruel making me relive all these tastes over and over again to write this… I want to go back again Nuffnang!!

Grace, Sarah from 100Datesand I showing that we all process great restraint.

Have you girls ever done high tea? I can’t wait until we actually have real furniture in our house again so I can invite everyone to tea at my place! Until then, maybe we can go to the Langham Hotel for tea together 😀
