This Mother's Day, I was very kindly invited to the Millennium Copthorne Hotel in Mayfair for afternoon tea with my mum. Sadly, my own mum lives down in Dorset and wasn't able to attend so I roped in my honorary mother and sister, Kate and Mikaela to attend with me. 

As we arrived early (as is the case with everything I do) we decided to use the opportunity to take some 'family' photos in Grosvenor Square Gardens opposite the hotel. 

The Millennium Hotel is a 4 star luxury hotel that sits in the heart of fashionable Mayfair. It's an 18th century London mansion which was originally built as a stately townhouse but has since been converted into a beautiful hotel that has retained many of it's original features. 

We were greeted with a much appreciated glass of Prosecco, and then given a tour of part of the hotel, including the conference rooms and suites. 

After the tour we sat down for our afternoon tea. We shared a table with Tom and his mum Gill who were fabulous and completely enhanced our enjoyment of the day!

Afternoon tea was served on charming Wedgewood Wild Strawberry crockery and included a selection of finger sandwiches (smoked salmon, chicken, egg mayonnaise and cucumber), scones with clotted cream, fruit preserve or lemon curd and a selection of mini desserts. The food was delicious, so much so that we were constantly discussing how we could get our greedy hands on more.

 Somebody enjoyed her food...

A big thank you to the Millennium Hotel for inviting us - we left very happy with full bellies. If you're looking for a reasonably priced afternoon tea in London then the Millennium Hotel has a couple of price options which you can see here - it's highly recommended by us all!
