Last week my mom, sister, baby Jay and I all went to the fancy schmancy Brown Palace Hotel for afternoon tea!
This is the most special event because the hotel is absolutely decked out in Christmas beauty and it's such an out of the ordinary event. I just feel so fancy sipping fresh brewed tea and eating fancy pastries.
We have each been to Brown Palace tea before but not for several years because you have to make reservations MONTHS in advance. We just happened to snag a reservation in September and I couldn't believe we made it in.
Each person gets to order their own pot of tea from a huge selection (I ordered a yummy coconut blend) and you get a three tiered tray of handmade scones, sandwiches, and pastries. Some of the favorites were cheesecake on a gingerbread crust and buttermilk scones with devonshire cream and raspberry jam.
There were live Christmas carolers, a piano player, stunning decorations all around, and wonderful company. SO happy to celebrate this season with my mom and sister and sweet little sleeping nephew.
Overall, a beautiful, fancy event to celebrate Christmas!
