I am so happy to have been part of the very first (I think) Bloggers tea party.
Organised by the lovely Laura from Happyhomemakeruk, 10 game girls and myself met at the wonderful Sketch restaurant in Conduit Street, London.
I must have walked past this restaurant/bar about one hundred times, never finding an opportunity to visit. I am so glad I have now.
The whole venue, consisting of five restaurants in all is a work of art from the moment you step inside.
From the blood spilt/red central staircase leading up to the Swarovski encrusted bathrooms(I kid you not!) to the wonderfully individual decorated restaurants and bars. Part nightclub, part country house.
And so to the Glade, where we had an afternoon tea to remember.
It was wonderful to get together with so many like minded ladies. In blog years I was the youngest, but not in real years! but everyone was delightful, we chatted and laughed and cooed over Sarah's (moderncountrystyle)lovely baby.
As I'm not a restaurant critic, I can't really do justice to sketch here, but I urge you to look at their fabulous web site, or if you get the chance to visit, go! Suffice to say the food was yummy - and there was a lot of it! The waiting staff looked gorgeous and for the charming Irish manager (sorry I didn't catch the name) nothing was too much trouble. That included kindly taking the same photo with ten different cameras!!
And if there is another Bloggers tea party, try and come, it's great fun.
ps: If you think I've gone 'link' mad, you're right! I've just learnt how to do this!!
Next I'll be crediting photos correctly, selling advertising on my blog, attending conventions...... I might have spawned a monster!!
Hope you have a lovely day,
