What to do with a toddler on Spring Break? “Afternoon Tea” probably isn’t on any top ten lists... but it should be!
Is it Jemma’s English DNA that makes her a natural at this? Her first time using a real tea cup and saucer (filled halfway with apple juice, while Mommy stays very close by, holding my breath!)
The Langham serves specialty teas in tailor-made “Langham Rose” Wedgwood teaware. This beautiful bone china was made exclusively for the hotel.
Exploring the jam and honey selection is all the rage with the three year old crowd…
Then someone discovered Devonshire cream and she’ll never be the same! …
A gorgeous California day with this incredible Pasadena view…
Jem insisted that she style herself for our fancy tea, choosing this Petite Hailey rainbow tutu dress and pink cardigan. It’s Jem’s favorite and now mine too. As you can see, she’s pretty proud of herself.
Walking around this beautiful hotel and grounds with my girl after our tea was just wonderful …
A huge thank you to the amazing hotel staff at The Langham.
You all made us feel like Queens for the Day in every way!
We can’t wait to visit you again! xoxo
If you can’t to The Langham anytime soon, this can be a wonderful activity to do in your own home, making it age appropriate for your children. We’ve done this more times than I can count at our house and it’s always fun.
Dress up in your fanciest of fancies (perfect for those princess costumes), put on some classical music, and throw a waterproof picnic blanket like this one in the middle of your living room or backyard for seating. Serve up your favorite juices and teas, pastries on serving platters, and use fun cookie cutters to shape your tea sandwiches (don’t forget to cut off the crusts!)
