Afternoon Tea at the St. Regis

Afternoon Tea at the St. Regis

As a girl who loooves her tea and truly digs special, little luxuries, attending Afternoon Tea* at the St. Regis has been on my really-want-to-do list from the moment I realized they even offered an Afternoon Tea. I’m so thankful to have been able to go twice this summer, first as a surprise sweet treat from the hub (who scored major brownie points** as you can imagine :-).

*I was happy to find that afternoon tea is far from rigidly formal: no gloves or hats required. I wore this to one tea and was very comfortable and appropriately attired.

**A good friend’s husband once said something to the effect of, “I don’t know why women bother giving brownie points because no matter how many a guy gets, they ALL disappear at the same time: the second he does something you don’t like.” I laughed at him the way one laughs at really good, observant comedians: It’s funny because it’s true!
