Here at Afternoon Tea Towers the team are always on the look out for Afternoon Tea related news, reviews, seasonal menus, special events and competitions.
May in London means just one thing – the RHS Chelsea Flower Show is in town with organisers and visitors praying that the sun shines all week long. We check out the Afternoon Tea menus created in celebration of the annual horticultural event.
Sketch Mayfair Flower Show
Rain won't make any difference to the enjoyment of another flower show running at Sketch in Mayfair. Until 29th May Sketch are honouring the Chelsea event with their very own Mayfair Flower Show, and a special Afternoon Tea menu.
The AfternoonTea.co.uk team were lucky enough to get a sneak preview of the Mayfair Flower Show and were bowled over by the sensational floral displays created within the 18th century building in Conduit Street.
The entrance has been transformed into an enchanted forest that takes you through a tunnel of greenery opening out into a spectacular burst of colour with flowers covering the staircase.
Glade has been transformed into the Pommery Champagne Lounge with hundreds of fresh blooms suspended from the ceiling, creating a dramatic setting to enjoy a glass of Pommery Royal Blue Sky Champagne - a sweeter Champagne served over ice - perfect for a summer's day
A trip to the toilets reveals a hillock reminiscent of the Hobbit House, straight out of Lord Of The Rings, and the theme continues atop the cubicles, with each sprouting its own vegetation.
Flowers are the inspiration for the Mayfair Flower Show Afternoon Tea, being served until 29th May, with a Poppy & Redcurrant eclair, Raspberry & hibiscus flower chocolate cake and Violet & raspberry choux on the menu.
Mayfair Flower Show Afternoon Tea costs £68 per person or £81 per person with a glass of Pommery Brut Silver Champagne.
The Dorchester @ Chelsea 2016
The Dorchester will be heading to Chelsea to set up their first pop-up restaurant serving Afternoon Tea from 24th to 28th May and the hotel's florist will be creating floral displays to bring a touch of The Promenade's Park Lane glamour to SW11.
Back at home The Dorchester will also be serving a special Chelsea Flower Show Champagne Afternoon Tea, available until 29th May.
