Mad Hatter's Tea Party @Sanderson's London







  


I was looking for something traditional and British but still a bit different for Cee and Ian’s arrival in London and the Mad Hatter's Tea at Sanderson's Hotel caught my eye. What a wonderful homage to Lewis Carroll’s ‘’Alice in Wonderland’, don’t you think?

The Sanderson is a 5 star luxury hotel with modern and quirky décor. You have to go outside in the Courtyard to ‘tumble down the rabbit hole’ and enjoy the Mad Hatter’s Tea party. On the table we found the menu hidden in a vintage book, linen napkins wrapped with card with riddles written on them. We had three tea blends in small crystal containers to choose from and the sugar cubes could be found in a musical box with little ballerina inside (to my disappointment the ballerina didn’t twirl and there was no music coming out the box either!) ;-) Teas pots had a king & queen designs and sandwich plates with zebras, carousels and clocks – BEAUTIFUL!! I loved the attention to the detail and the entire theme was great and wonderfully presented!

As for the food – it was good although I have to say that there were too many sweets and that comes from someone who has a sweet tooth!! ;-) I seriously couldn’t even finish my dessert. I have to say that I loved their scones (THEY WERE SO GOOD!!) and I am not even a scone lover.
My other favourites were the Tick Tock Victoria sponge clock, the ‘Drink me’’ pot with different flavour layered juice and the dark chocolate teacup with a popping candy inside. The service was great too!

There is one thing, I would of wished for; I would of loved that the setting had carried the Mad Hatter’s theme a little bit further.

  1. Hi sweetie! What lovely photos, reading this post brought back such lovely memories - I know it's only been a few weeks, but this lovely tea already seems like so long ago. I love your photo of the jelly wonderland cart, I think I somehow missed taking one of it and yours turns out just perfectly! So glad that we got to enjoy this together, and I totally agree - a few little rabbits and clocks around the room would have really made the location perfect!
    xox,
