Last week I had the good fortune to be invited to attend a #CuppaForCANSA high tea at the luxurious Table Bay Hotel in the Waterfront. This delightful afternoon was hosted by Le Creuset and the lovely Vicki from Iwantthat and the afternoon promised to be a real treat.
Given it’s luxurious reputation The Table Bay’s new High Tea menu did not disappoint. We were plied with teeny tiny sandwiches, posh sausage rolls, mini salmon quiches and gorgeous wraps and that was just the first course.
After that we tucked into warm scones served with dollops of thick jam and lemon curd and washed down with pots of hot tea.
Then to finish it all off we were set loose on the cake table (sadly I did not manage to take a decent photo of this marvel). The enormous pastry display was crammed with all kinds of delicious goodies, to be honest I had no idea where to start. There where every kind of cake you can imagine. There was even a multicolored cheesecake – truly the silliest cake I had ever seen!
As you may remember, Nadine was selected as my “Cake Date” for the afternoon and we had the best fun hanging out together, Turns out we have a lot of friends in common and spent a lot of the afternoon catching up on who’s who and what’s what. I couldn’t have wished for a better High Tea buddy. Thanks Nadine for putting up with my non-stop chit chat and sitting with me while my sugar rush passed! You are dynamite!
After stuffing our faces with kilograms of carbs, there was a sneaky little raffle draw (in aid of CANSA) and much to my surprise I was drawn as a prize winner, scoring, for myself, a very pretty pink Le Creuset stove top kettle. How exciting! Now Alexis and I have his and hers kettles (as we already have a baby blue kettle).
Then to top it all each guest was given a divine little party pack, filled with loads of gorgeous goodies, including the prettiest heart shaped ramekins and a perfect pink cappuccino mug (from Le Creuset) as well as the pretty pink nail polish. What a treat!
What a fantastic afternoon, I went home so happy, my belly was bulging with sweet treats and my heart was bursting with sweet love from new friends. What a delight!
