London's Afternoon Tea Hotspot

18 May 2011

I recently trawled the internet for a venue (and I know all you ididjeridoo followers know exactly what this is like because you've all done the same when searching for your Australian and New Zeland wedding hotspot).  But this time, I wasn't researching for a client; I was looking for something specific for my own event.  My birthday! 

What I was looking for was traditional afternoon tea, somewhere in London, girls only and private.  You'd be surprised how non-existant these simple requirements combined are in our city. 

Yes, afternoon tea is available at pretty much every fabulous hotel you can poke a stick at, but I wasn't keen on a £40+ per head bill ... and most importantly, the majority of these hotels won't host parties of more than 8 (hen party deterrent?)

Then, I stumbled upon Tea Party and it was everything I was looking for and more.  This little beauty is one of London's most unique and special little venues.  A private tearoom situated in Finchley, it caters for up to 20 guests and serves all the traditionals you'd expect from afternoon tea i.e. freshly made scones with jam and clotted cream, delicate finger sandwiches, tea in china cups, jugs of lemonade, cupcakes and for a little extra - chocolate dipped strawberries.  You're even invited to select accessories from the Tea Party Dressing Up Box - birthday girl wore the tiara naturally.

Decorated in pink striped wallpaper, bunting, florals and all things girly; Tea Party is the perfect venue for birthday teas, hen parties, baby showers, little girl birthdays, Mother's Days and girly get togethers.
