Tea at the Peninsula

Today, my husband and I had a wonderful time celebrating his birthday at the Peninsula Hotel in Chicago! We went for their decadent Traditional Afternoon Tea, which we like to do a couple times each year. We both love the elegance of the Lobby, where the tea is served. A violinist and cellist serenaded us from a balcony as we indulged in beautiful and scrumptious finger sandwiches, scones, tea cakes, cookies and aromatic Earl Grey tea.

I love to collect tea cups and saucers, and always admire the Peninsula's tea service pattern, which is by Wedgwood and is called "India." We recommend The Peninsula Tea if you're ever in Chicago. It's very Victorian!
