London, England - Diamond Jubilee Tea at Claridge's

The last event on my four day Jubilee weekend celebration was high tea yesterday afternoon at the famous London hotel Claridge’s. I was accompanied by my best friend from university, the fabulous Greek Cypriot/South African interior designer Georgia Van Heyste. While I often pop into the bar at Claridge’s for a cocktail after work, I have never experienced their afternoon tea which, year after year, has been voted best tea in London by the British Tea Guild. Not only did they have a special Diamond Jubilee Tea menu, but pastries came adorned with festive crowns and union jack flags. The service is impeccable: you will never see the bottom of your tea cup, and the tea sandwiches, scones and pastries were delicious. I love the pianist/harp duo and the stunning fresh flower displays in the center of the room, not to mention the art deco interior spaces of the hotel. I think Claridge’s just tied The Connaught for my favorite afternoon tea in London

Some festive chocolates, which came wrapped up in a Claridge's bow,
were given to us to take home
