Afternoon Tea at Housing UnitsWednesday, December 09, 2015
At the end of November I went to the first blogger event at Housing Units. In the goodie bag they kindly gave to us was a voucher for afternoon tea for two. This was a really unexpected surprise but a very nice one.
I had booked Friday off work to do some Christmas shopping and asked if my mum fancied a little trip to Housing Units. We had a wanted round and I think my mum's shopping list came to about £7000 in the first building without looking in the Emporium and Fireplaces. She's picked a sofa that is so big I think we'd have to know through every house in our row to fit it in.
I would recommend booking a table, we got there about 2pm and the cafe was packed, I'd booked for 2.30pm but they were happy for us to go in early and a couple in front of us asked for a table and had to wait 25 mins.
One of the lovely things is that the afternoon tea's come out on individual platters and it was really well presented.
Another nice touch for me was the sandwich flavours, they were plain and simple, cream cheese and cucumber, poached salmon, egg mayo as well as chicken and stuffing.
The top tier was made up of a prosecco jelly, scone with butter, jam & clotted cream, a mini Victoria sponge cake and a mini fruit tart.
It was a really lovely afternoon, we really enjoyed looking round and I treated myself to some Bomb Cosmetics bath products and you could easily spend a few hours looking round at all the different stores.
