I ENJOYED an incredible afternoon tea at Bettys the other week.
On a cold yet beautiful winter’s Day, I travelled to the historic city of York with my lovely Mum and we experienced the most delicious champagne afternoon tea, as Bettys‘ guests.
Quite frankly, if there’s a finer way to spend a few precious hours with your Mum, well I’d be amazed because this really was quite something.
I often talk about how blogging has brought incredible opportunities into my life, but I should also mention that it enables me to treat my family and those I love the most, too!
It’s something I am incredibly grateful for and something that really came home to me, when my dear Mum became a little emotional on our special day out.
To be fair, it’s quite easy to get a little emotional when you’re having afternoon tea at Bettys, because the setting of their Belmont Room is just incredibly beautiful.
See what I mean?
As the first people to enter the room, we were really able to take in our elegant surroundings and marvel at the 1920s decor which was so lovely it actually made me gasp.
I adore the 1920s era and all of it’s glamour, so I very happily felt right at home here surrounded by the room’s beautiful wood panelling, oriental etched glass and elegant, crisp linens.
The afternoon tea began with bubbles.
