Mother’s Day is a fantastic time to enjoy some quality time with family and friends and one great way to do that is with afternoon tea. So why not treat your mum to a lavish spread this Mother’s Day. We have put together some of our favourites in London with some tips on what to wear.
For Something Luxury
Head down to Piccadilly and enjoy a bonding experience with your mother at Fortnum and Mason. After all luxury teas is what they are famous for so this would be ideal if you wanted to go all out. With both a sweet and a savoury menu to choose from, you will surely not be disappointed. Set in a beautifully decadent but calm atmosphere you will most definitely want to dress upscale for the occasion. We would recommend dresses and cardigans. Our Chelsea Cap Sleeve Dress in Dusky Pink is the perfect example of a smart occasion wear dress for such an occasion. Perfect for the transitional weather, this feminine dress features a sweetheart neckline and a pretty bow detail. We would of course recommend teaming it with our Ivory Highgate Shrug for ultimate daytime elegance.
For something Quirky
Looking for something a bit different? Why not try an afternoon tea with a twist? The BB Bakery Bus tour is perfect for this and ideal for the whole family especially if there are young ones. Here you will experience afternoon tea on a bus and whilst it may sound a bit gimmicky, the experience is actually rather fun. Expect to dine on a diverse feast of fresh sandwiches, quiches, lemon meringue pie, scones and macaroons. When dressing for this occasion we would recommend taking a smart casual approach. Our Shoreditch Printed Dress teamed with a pair of pumps and our Black Highgate Shrug makes a lovely outfit for this kind of adventure. The fun and playful print of the dress will surely match the vibe of this afternoon tea.
For something Modern
Afternoon teas can often be identical and whilst we love tradition, there is something simply refreshing about the afternoon tea at the Modern Pantry in Clerkenwell. Here you can expect an imaginative array of treats on the menu such as coconut and cardamom scones and crunchy peanut butter cheesecake. So if you’re looking to update you’re afternoon tea look no further than here. You can also update your wardrobe for occasions like these with our Marylebone Tile Print Dress in Raspberry or Charcoal.
