Yesterday I was invited to try out Burberry’s special Mother’s Day afternoon tea. The Burberry cafe is hidden inside Burberry’s flagship store on Regent Street in London. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, it was great to enjoy a quite moment in the cafe before heading out for some Saturday sping.
If you’re looking for some last minute Mother’s Day inspiration, hopefully this post will help you. Afternoon tea is always a lovely way of showing your mother just how special she is to you.
The interior of the Burberry cafe is elegant and sophisticated. Tall ceilings and windows, white table cloths and art nouveau tiled floors. It’s therefore the perfect place for a Mother’s Day afternoon tea, and a great place to create new memories.
The abundance of natural lighting also makes it the perfect place to take some cute family photos. You will already know from my Paris trip post that gorgeous interiors are a number one priority for me.
Mother’s Day afternoon tea
The afternoon tea at Thomas’ cafe is traditional -crumpets, scones or tea cakes, finger sandwiches and petit fours. There is also the option of adding Nightingale wine if you’re feeling like a little English bubbly.
I particularly enjoyed the clotted cream and Thomas’ jam scones. Speaking of which -do you say scone or scon? And do you prefer your scones with jam and clotted cream, or with clotted cream and jam? Please leave a comment below. This has already caused a bit of a storm on my Instagram lol.
Unfortunately I was not able to treat my mummy to Mother’s Day afternoon tea this year. However, this is definitely somewhere I would love to take her to on her next visit to London. Thomas’ cafe is also open for lunch and dinner, with a selection of traditional British foods.
What are your plans for mothers’ day?
