I recently had the chance to go out to high tea with Mr Prince as a very belated engagement present from a friend (as you can tell, we got married in December of last year, so very belated indeed!). That's what I wore to high tea.

Easy, casual and just cute enough for high tea on a cold day!
When we arrived, we found a reserved sign on our table, and these cute little plates. We were asked if we wanted a cold drink, and we picked champagne to begin with, as well as sparkling water.
That's my hungry face! I've got a very healthy appetite!
It didn't take long for the champagne to arrive, however, so I drank that while waiting for the yummies to turn up.
We started with little quiches, bocconcini and tomato on a stick, beetroot and roast beef sandwiches, smoked salmon sandwiches and cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches - a lovely light start.
We then graduated onto dipping slices of apple into caramel, and dunking strawberries into chocolate. We were going to eat the cupcakes next, but decided to have them last. Coconut, their own flavour, Pure Sparkle (a vanilla based cupcake) and White Chocolate and Strawberry were the cupcakes on the tier.
We then attacked the passionfruit pannacottas, chocolate mousse cakes, strawberry cream puffs and the two macaroons - sesame, which was surprisingly yummy, and vanilla.
This was one very well laid out, and tasty high tea! It was almost minimalist, with clean lines and colours. We also had hot drinks at the end - I had some peppermint tea, and Mr Prince had some coffee.
Overall, I really enjoyed my experience there, and I would definitely go back! Great cupcakes, incidentally!
I would rate this:
