Time for tea: Brumus at the Haymarket Hotel

This Sunday was one of the nicest Sundays in a while. My girls went for a gorgeous afternoon tea baby shower at Brumus at the Haymarket Hotel in the West End to celebrate the coming (soon!) of a new lovely baby. The tea set is Wedgewood Wild Strawberry bone china (I looked underneath the cup) and I would seriously consider getting married simply to get this.

The setting is beautiful and the service is wonderful. Between the six of us we had three traditional teas and three specials to mix it up. This is the traditional one with scones, finger sandwiches and little eclairs.

This tier was overflowing with salmon blinis, blueberry cheesecake and chocolate coated strawberries and marshmallows. So good.

Sometimes I think this country is insane but then I remember that we have afternoon tea, freedom and Clare Balding and all is well with the world again.
