A charming tea etiquette guide and Marie Antoinette trivia adorns the table. The girls & I had fun browsing over the leaflets while waiting for our Royal Afternoon Tea to be served.

The Royal Afternoon Tea follows the successful Prêt-a-PorTea series themed after iconic fashion brands Kate Spade, Furla, Tiffany, and Charriol. Click HERE, HERE, HERE & HERE for my delightful tête-à-tête with my charming daughters while indulging in a fancy goûter.

The Royal Afternoon Tea Series started May 1, and will last for a very limited time only until July 31. It will be first featuring the luxurious Marie Antoinette Afternoon Tea.

Marie Antoinette (2 November 1755 – 16 October 1793)

Indulge in a medley of sweet and savoury creations inspired by Marie Antoinette, a queen known for her extravagant lifestyle.

Marie Antoinette; born Maria Antonia Josepha Johanna (2 November 1755 – 16 October 1793) was the last Queen of France and Navarre before the French Revolution. She was born an Archduchess of Austria, and was the fifteenth and second youngest child of Empress Maria Theresa and Francis I, Holy Roman Emperor.

The Royal Afternoon Tea features delicate desserts which include classic Lavender macarons; delightful cakes such as a chocolate-orange financier and a rose-and-white chocolate flavoured religieuse; bite-sized apple and almond tart; quaint vanilla sugar cookies; and fruity strawberry Pavlova.

Savoury, French-themed tea-cup sandwiches are also served like brioche topped with egg and black truffle, foie gras terrine served on hazelnut bread, Niçoise on “pain de campagne à la tomate”, and the traditional onion tartlet.

It’s always a delight browsing over the many tea selections at the Writer’s Bar of Raffles Makati which is already included in your Royal Afternoon Tea package. I like fruity drinks so I asked for my all-time favorite, the WHITE VANILLA GRAPEFRUIT tea.

Champagne is something that I can never say NO to. Life is a celebration & I take advantage of every opportunity to give a toast to every single day on earth that I get to enjoy with the people I love. <3

I have a modest silver collection at home. I wonder if I should start with fine china as well. ;)

If I do, will Kap build me another display cabinet once I start my love affair with fine china? ;P

How wonderful that I was able to celebrate this lovely Marie Antoinette Royal Afternoon Tea at the Writer’s Bar of Raffles Makati on Mother’s Day with my 2 princesses. Motherhood is certainly made more fun with loving & thoughtful daughters who make it a point to shower me with plenty of love & affection not just on special days but every single day of the year. <3

Thank you Ate for letting me release my inner child & for letting me make lambing & act out whenever, wherever – all the things I never got to do growing up. For being my playmate & the grown up in our relationship. <3

marie-antoinette-afternoon-tea-13

Thank you for always taking care of me & loving me so so much. For always putting my needs ahead of yours. You grew up ahead of your time because you had to take care of me, and most willingly too. I appreciate all that you are & all that you do for me. You love me best.

Belated Mother’s Day to all the beautiful, loving, patient, indulgent, supportive, self-sacrificing mothers out there. You are to be celebrated not just once a year, but every single day. After all, of all the gifts that life has to offer, WE are the greatest of them all:-*

I’m such a fan of Reign. I hope Raffles Makati features Queen Mary next! <3

Mary, Queen of Scots (8 December 1542 – 8 February 1587), also known as Mary Stuart.
