qu’ils mangent du gâteau /

Translation: “Let them eat cake!” and so we did.

I recently turned 23 and decided to treat myself and ten close girlfriends to some Afternoon Tea at the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel in Gardens.

It was a first for many of us and everyone enjoyed the afternoon treats and setting thoroughly. I will definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to get their money’s worth.

The buffet spread includes anything to everything sweet imaginable. Next, tiers of savoury treats is brought to the table and lastly, scones with cream and fruit coulis (that’s if you still have space for them!). Everyone also had the choice between an array of flavoured tea’s or Deluxe coffee to enjoy with their food.

I decided to customise each person’s invite to their interests and personality. The invitations were sent out in digital form and at the end of the afternoon I also gave each guest a “thank you” card with a little Lindt treat stuck onto it. Each design was printed on scrap pieces of textured paper I had from previous projects and the images were sourced from Pinterest.

Here is how they came out:
