Pink Paradise


When I set my eyes on this pink paradise I was mesmerised, the walls, marble chevron floor, velvet marshmallow curved couches, gold accents, illustrated walls and quirky cutlery had me in a trance! Its rather magical inside Sketch London’s Gallery room and definitely takes you away from the real world for an afternoon.
I knew we were in for a visual delight when booking a slot for afternoon tea so why waste an opportunity to dress up!? ; ) I went all out and rocked pastel pink and mauve head to toe, I felt a little like a Malibu Stacy doll but loved it. A figure hugging skirt with an overhanging cropped top helps balance out the silhouette, this House of CB skirt is my absolute favourite, it definitely hugs in all the right places!
I mixed my metals in this outfit, the cropped top has a heavy silver diamante neckline which is a beautiful design statement, but you know me and my love for stacking right!? I teamed it with my Ottoman Hand gems which are all set in gold, I personally think the contrast works well and it’s always good to experiment with colours, you would be surprised what combinations work better and pull an outfit together.


So for those of you who are not familiar with afternoon tea, I’ll try and break it down. I actually have a fond experience of afternoon/high tea from a good 5 years ago, I was with my family in one of London’s prestigious department stores, after Christmas shopping we were feeling a little parched and went to the top floor to maybe sit down have a tea or muffin, after seeing a price tag of £45 + per person we quickly exited. £45 for TEA?! Can you take it home, plant it into your flower bed and grow a money tree afterwards?! Why was it so expensive?!
I now know it’s not a single mug of tea served, it is actually a meal, well sort of. Afternoon tea is a selection of sandwiches, cakes and pastries, fruits and tea. A real mixture of little nibbles, but believe me when I say it fills you up!!! It is actually hard to finish everything served and you end up leaving the experience with a well-rounded food baby.
It is one of those once in a blue moon experiences as you don’t go for afternoon tea that often (it’s a crazy sugar rush so I wouldn’t recommend that much cake regularly!)
Sketch London definitely topped my lists of venues for afternoon tea, I couldn’t fault it, also the cocktails OULALA! Very very tasty!
I would love to hear from you if you recommend anywhere else in London for afternoon tea!
