Over the weekend, we threw a bridal shower for my bff at Hawksworth Restaurant in one of the restaurants beautiful private dining rooms – The York Room. We indulged in decadent afternoon treats from the restaurant’s kitchen and macarons from Bel Cafe.
Everything was fresh and the flavour pairings of the savouries were impressive. Some of my favourites were the lobster salad cone and foie fras torchon with hazelnut and strawberry. The focus of the set was on the savouries as the sweets selection was small and somewhat on the overly sweet side. And as for tea, there were a handful of TWG branded teas to choose from and it was served in a teabag-in-cup fashion.
The afternoon tea service is only available for private functions and we were served in the York Room by three dedicated servers for our group of over 25 guests. They were always nearby for a drink refill or offer assistance when necessary. We all had a wonderful time chatting, eating and playing bridal party games. There was one particular game in which guests had to get up and go to different parts of the room depending on their answer. The private room really helped to give our big boisterous group a place to move about freely and giggle to our hearts content.
Below are some photos from the day.
Until our next tea date!
