Harrods X Sophia Webster Afternoon Tea //

Dear Readers,

For those of you who love sipping and enjoying a proper cup of tea and have an eye for timeless designer shoes, then this one is for you.

Iced Chiara Sandal Gingerbread Biscuits

The Sophia Webster Social Butterflies Afternoon Tea which launched on Monday 15th May, will be available until Friday 23rd June 2017 and brings all your shoe dreams to an edible reality.

Set amongst the timeless backdrop of The Georgian, an institution in its own right as one of London's finest destinations for afternoon tea, guests can experience the Sophia Webster Social Butterflies limited edition menu, which features a selection of classic sandwiches, scones and your choice of Harrods fine tea.

It is also accompanied with an additional experimental selection of carefully crafted cakes and desserts inspired by the Spring Summer 2017 collection. It includes Bibi passion fruit and peach macarons, a Chiara monochrome liquorice sponge cake with panna cotta which is decorated with butterfly wings and white chocolate mousse and the Chiara gold sea-salt-caramel mousse sphere covered in hazelnuts. 

For something more indulgent, try the Sophia Webster shoe box; a melt in the mouth vanilla sponge layered with passion fruit jam and mousse, encased in a white chocolate box. For those of you hoping to snap the perfect picture of your #HarrodsXSophiaWebster afternoon tea for Instagram, then be sure to try the iced Chiara sandal gingerbread biscuits. They are almost too pretty to eat, but taste absolutely divine.

The collaboration between the traditional Harrods department store and the playful British designer Sophia Webster is celebrated throughout the afternoon tea experience. The walls and centre pieces are laced with white flowers and the iconic Sophia Webster butterflies are dotted around the venue.

It was a great opportunity to go along with my Mum and fully take a day to relax and unwind from both our busy schedules.
