NARNIA AFTERNOON TEA AT THE ASSEMBLY HOUSE, NORWICH

After the most peculiar year I can’t believe that its Christmas already! With the devastating tier announcements yesterday, my heart breaks for those who cannot be with their family over the festive period. I’m sending all of my love to everyone!

While I was feeling a complete lack of Christmas spirit my Mumma surprised me with the most spectacular Afternoon Tea. I’ve had Afternoon Tea in numerous places in the country and I have to say The Assembly House is nearly impossible to beat. The Assembly House has incredible grounds and a breath-taking interior. It really is a treat to dine there. They have added 2 incredible igloo style seating areas on the grounds for Covid safe dining, I didn’t dine in one this time but in the future will be sure to request it.

The Narnia themed Afternoon Tea was the perfect Christmassy twist. We chose the Assembly House Afternoon Tea Blend, which was delicious and treated ourselves to a Passionfruit Bellini. The highlights for me were the turkey, sage, onion stuffing and cranberry roll, Assembly House sausage roll, the frozen toadstool macaron and the Faun Gingerbread Cupcake. Each flavour ignited a nostalgic Christmas feeling. The finger sandwiches were made on the softest bread and the scones were delectably warm.

I wore Zara cream mom jeans and a Zara cream knit blouse with pussybow detailing. I styled a H&M cream faux-fur cropped jacket, cream Gucci bag, tan Gucci belt and ASOS neutral patent heels with ankle tie. It was truly incredible to dress up and have a small amount of escapism from reality.
