My Birthday Peter Rabbit Afternoon Tea


Yesterday was my Birthday and as much as I hate surprises, mainly due to my anxiety, my boyfriend was determined to surprise me.  He proved yet again just how well he knows me by surprising me with the cutest little Peter Rabbit themed afternoon tea at Colwick Hall.  If there's one thing I love it's a good afternoon tea!

The one thing I really loved about this afternoon tea is the theming, you could tell that they had really put some thought into it down to each last little detail.  At the entrance there was a giant scarecrow and Peter Rabbit themed signs, including cute little allotment wheelbarrows.  The decor inside was just beautiful too.  The room was filled with beautiful climbing roses, not only were they aesthetically pleasing but they really gave the feeling that you were sitting in a quaint little rose garden.  I have also now decided I want to fill my dining room with them too, ha ha.

Then when the afternoon tea was bought to our table I couldn't contain my delight.  It was the cutest, especially the crate of little garden themed cakes.  The stand was filled with a variety of sandwiches, super yummy mini cheese and leek pies, the cutest little cup of carrot and coriander soup and finally scones with clotted cream and jam.  It was all very delicious, especially the homemade soup and mini pies.  This is the first time I've had afternoon tea with anything hot on it, it made a nice change and added to the variety of the afternoon tea.  There was also a wide selection of teas available but seeing as it was my birthday I just had to treat myself to one of their speciality themed cocktails to go alongside the Peter Rabbit afternoon tea.  I opted for the raspberry mojito one and it was delicious!

Finally onto my favourite part of the afternoon tea... the cakes!!  Just look how incredibly cute they are!  There was a really great selection including bunny tail meringues, carrot and ginger cookies and lemon cake.  My absolute favourites though had to be the miniature plant pot chocolate muffins and have you seen those little acorn doughnuts?!  So god damn cute, especially for a a doughnut lover like myself.

This was an absolutely fantastic afternoon tea, the only thing missing was Peter Rabbit himself.  If you're looking for a delicious afternoon tea, I would definitely recommend Cowlick Hall.  Their next themed afternoon tea which launches on the 4th May is a Star Wars themed one, and seeing as my boyfriend is a huge Star Wars fan we're hoping to go back to sample that one too.
