Tea Party at The Plaza Hotel

Have you ever thrown a Tea Party at The Plaza! #goals I mean dreams do come true right!  There’s nothing better than sleepovers at The Plaza with your girlfriends!

We checked into The Plaza Hotel in New York. Yes, THE Plaza.  I can’t believe those words are coming out of my mouth.  I didn’t think I’d ever get to stay there.  It’s incredible. A true Eloise adventure!  

Tea Time At The Plaza

The entire experience is first class. The girls and I quickly checked into our suite then headed down to The Palm Court for a champagne lunch, chapeaux included. 

Eloise Tea for In-Room Dining

We then ordered the Eloise Tea for in-room delivery to keep our Tea Party going!  We snacked on yummy macaroons, cotton candy, bite-size cucumber sandwiches, and scones.  A true tea party event (made for a princess).

What made Tea Time even better is that one of my friends is from London and her English accent couldn’t have been more fitting.  She was kind enough to explain how a true Tea Time is supposed to go down.  When the three-tiered snacks arrived we were told to start in the middle, then to the top shelf, and finish with a scone, which is located on the bottom shelf.

To eat the scone, you’re supposed to add jam first, then clotted cream, and finally top it with lemon curd. I think I’d give up southern-style biscuits forever if I could replace them with scones.  They were delicious and paired perfectly with our tea! I also learned that in England they always add cream to their tea.  I lean towards honey if I want a flavor enhancer but the cream wasn’t bad either.

Butler Service

We did not want to leave since we were having such an amazing time. Plus Rey (our Butler) #Reythebutler was fabulous! I could get used to this. Tea Parties at The Plaza are a must!
Thanks to The Plaza for making this such an amazingly delicious and unforgettable experience! Until next time…
