Bloggers Afternoon Tea at Millennium Knightsbridge

May 08,2013

On 23rd April 2013, 25 of the UK's most prominent lifestyle bloggers were invited to the Millennium Hotel London Knightsbridge for a guided tour of the hotel and afternoon tea in the popular Tangerine Café Bar.

Director of Sales at the hotel, Cipriano Silva, hosted the event, which saw top bloggers indulge in luxury over the course of an afternoon 'jam-packed' full of fun.

The bloggers, all self-confessed afternoon tea connoisseurs, were treated to strawberries and glasses of Champagne upon arrival at the hotel, setting a theme of grandeur for the afternoon ahead. Cipriano then showed them around the elegant and luxurious hotel suites, that all offer splendid views of London's iconic skyline, before resident chef, Anthony Roberts, unveiled the tasty treats that the guests would be indulging in for their afternoon tea.

The Millennium Hotel London Knightsbridge always aims to exceed the expectations of its guests, and Anthony whipped up some of the tastiest treats for the bloggers on the day. The menu included a variety of sandwiches, finely decorated cakes and, that English staple, scones. There was also a selection of different teas available, as well as a dessert of chocolate mousse, which was served in spectacular chocolate coffee cups!

The biggest surprise of the day, however, was saved for last. Cipriano organised for Christine Pearce, from Minding Manners, Europe's leading internationally certified Etiquette & Protocol Consultancy and Modular Finishing School Academy, to attend the event and teach the bloggers the basics of table etiquette and impart a little history behind such practices. Our bloggers seemed thrilled to receive the advice, with many inspired to host their own tea parties in the near future.

Since the event, many of the bloggers have posted about how much they enjoyed the afternoon and appreciated the hotel's 'top-notch' hosting. Thank you once again to all the bloggers who attended.
