Afternoon Tea at The Ritz Carlton

Every year my mother, sister, my daughter and I like to have a “girl’s day out” or a “girl’s weekend”. The last trip we took was to the Biltmore in North Carolina during the spring time. This year my sister and her husband came to visit for Thanksgiving so we decided to have a girl’s afternoon tea at The Ritz Carlton in Buckhead, Georgia. Off we went the day before Thanksgiving to have our tea.

First our tea of choice was poured. Mine was the Blackberry Tea.


Then delicate tea sandwiches were brought out. Just look at the variety of sandwiches to choose from. Each one was absolutely delicious. 


As we savored each bite we talked about different things and enjoyed the ambiance surrounding us. Even my teenage daughter was impressed and it takes a lot to a compliment out of her.


As we finished the sandwiches and more tea was poured by our hostesses, the scones were brought to our table. The scones were served with clotted cream, lemon curd and strawberry preserves. Yum!


Then last but surely not least, the delightful little cakes and an assortment of pastries was served. What a wonderful afternoon tea and memories made to cherish always.

  1. What a lovely girls' trip . . . I love going out for tea! The last time I got to do this, I dragged my husband across Hyde Park in the rain to the Orangery by Kensington Palace. Let me say your tea trays look even more sumptuous than those in mighty London where tea reigns supreme.
