Birthday Part 1 - High Tea at Sweet Pea!

Like I said in my previous post - I'm the kind of girl who enjoys celebrating a whole "birth week". What is the point of limiting you birthday celebrations to one day?

So last Saturday I headed out to Sweet Pea in Petone which is a cafe that specialises in fancy high tea!

Here's a few photos of the cafe itself - super cute right? Also a sneaky shot of the cupcake cabinet. 




A few photos of the high tea we bought, we chose the "Posh" high tea, which is the most basic one. But it was still pretty amazing. It had a good mix of sweet and savoury and it wasn't too heavy on the super doughy things. We also got to have a tea pot each with a tea of our choice - or hot chocolate, ice tea or other kind of drink (depending on preference).



 This photo is a bit blurry - but its the only one I had taken of me at the event. I made my friends wear hats to the high tea because we are fancy ladies.
 Here's the rest of the fancy ladies in their fancy hats (all but one of the hats is mine!)
With this particular high tea you get a free cupcake to either eat at the cafe or take away. I will be honest though guys, these cupcakes look beautiful without a doubt, but the taste wasn't so great. They were a bit dry.
Here's a couple of group photos after the high tea - it was such a fun day out. Fancy Ladies!

Tomorrow I'm off for my birthday celebrations in Auckland - hurrah!
