The old English tradition of tea and cake in the afternoon is in danger of disappearing, but with summer coming up there has never been a better time to sit in the sun with a tasty spread. The run-up to your wedding is the perfect time to treat yourself and your hens - perhaps to the elegant Champagne Rose Tea in the gorgeous Park Room in Grosvenor House, overlooking Hyde Park. The menu is undeniably decadent: delicate finger sandwiches, fruit tarts with crystallised rose petals, scones, rosewater mille-feuilles and the lightest rose scented éclairs. This would be the perfect place to relax with your mum, catch up with old friends, or of course to have all your hens come and celebrate with you in the most wonderfully elegant venue.
