Afternoon Tea @ Windsor Casino

One thing I did over the holidays that I forgot to mention earlier was an afternoon tea that was held at Ontario's {Caesar's Windsor Casino}. My Aunt Wendy had asked my mom and I if we were interested in a girl's afternoon in Windsor, ending with afternoon tea. Of course we were up for it! 

We started off in search of an Italian food market that my Aunt had read about, then some shopping (browsing for me) at one of Windsor's malls then over to the casino for some pre-tea cocktails, and finally a mini tea party! 

Many of you know that afternoon or high tea is a popular thing over in England, and thankfully, I've had several opportunities to go! One of my favourites is afternoon tea at the {Royal Garden Hotel}, in Kensington, which I've had the pleasure of attending once with my mom, and once with {Carlie} and her mom. Last year I went to {Le Meridien, Picadilly}, with Christy when she came for a visit. I've been to one other location when the girls from school and I went for tea for Christmas, but unfortunately, I can't remember what it was called! 

Afternoon teas always contain the same elements: never ending tea and a tiered tray complete with scones, clotted cream, preserve, a variety of desserts, and finger sandwiches, however, some afternoon teas get a little more fancy with gloved waiters that pull out your chair and lay your napkin on your lap, someone playing a grand piano, or even champagne and strawberries! Either way, afternoon tea is a fun way to spend the afternoon!
