Jubilee Tea....

After our round of golf on the roof, we descended down to street level and headed over to Fortnum & Masons for afternoon jubilee tea...
We walked the back streets taking in the sights and displays of jubilee windows, via Claridges and Bond street... Loved the champagne butlers in bowlers in Jimmy Choo and the silver leaf Macaron's in Lauduree...and the Keep it clean for the Queen signage from Pret!...


Fortnums was festooned with bunting & regalier inside and out, ready for the big street party the following day, which was attended by Charles & Camilla.
Situated on the 4th floor the Tea salon is light and airy and is styled in the F&M turquoise. The tables are well spaced so that you don't feel like you are sitting on top of each other.
The tea was not without mishap!... C managed to decorate the tablecloth, and loose all her tea leaves forgetting to use the strainer!.. She got me so flummoxed I managed to loose the sugar bowl lid inside the sugar bowl!... I'm never a clutz, but I was on this afternoon!!!...



Tea was lovely, scones & raspberry jam were delicious, however the service left much to be desired, not the best that I have had.
However service aside, we had much fun and laughed lots..
