In time for tea

This week we were invited to “High Tea” hosted by The Conrad Chicago Hotel, Engaging Events by Ali and Katherine Anne Confections.  And high tea it was! We arrived to the 16th floor terrace and were greeted with with wonderful scents of teas and an amazing view of Chicago!

I took a taste of the the first one that stood out to me,  “Chocolate and Coconut” – wow!  it was delicious!

The tables were dressed with uber-chic risers and place settings from Classic Party Rentals, fuchsia shantung linens from Windy City Linens and beautiful florals from Pollen Floral Design.

Check out the darling menus designed by Spilled Ink Press 😀

After munching on some yummy bite sized tea sandwiches, pound cake and blueberry scones, Katherine served the best part yet!  perfectly paired truffles and my all time favorite –  her famous Fleur de Sel caramels!

The afternoon was a pleasant break from the hustle and bustle of wedding season.  Delicous tea and snacks, nice company, the picturesque view on a gorgeous August day!

Thanks for including us and for the fun party favors!  nothing better then taking some caramels and truffles home to enjoy!! 😉
