Amidst all the wedding plans and rehearsals, a hen party can often seem like just another stressful occasion for brides to be. Thankfully, the Berkeley's autumn/winter 2009-10 Prêt-à-Portea is nothing of the sort, and will provide some very welcome respite for brides and their hens looking to have some fun together, in the form of some very delectable treats.
Taking the form of an afternoon tea, this season's Prêt-à-Portea sees catwalk trends transformed into delicious miniature cakes and fancies, with Burberry's belted beige trench translated into a melt-in-the-mouth cinnamon biscuit iced with caramel, and Louis Vuitton's quirky bunny ears topping a delicate chestnut and pomegranate mousse. You'll also be treated to savoury canapés and tea sandwiches, as well as an enormous range of loose leaf teas and herbal infusions, and the option of Champagne.
The charming Caramel Room Supervisor Antonio is the perfect host, granting your every request with a beaming smile, and all waiting staff are knowledgeable, efficient and thorough. Best of all, they replenish any plates as soon as you empty them, meaning you really can eat as many sandwiches, cakes and fancies as you like. Why not book now on 020 7235 6000 for a delicious and relaxing day with your hens; you may get a little fashion inspiration too!
Prêt-à-Portea is served in The Caramel Room at The Berkeley from 1-6pm every day priced at £35.00 per person. (£43 including a glass of Laurent Perrier Champagne, or £49.00 per person including a glass of couture Champagne)
