Down the Rabbit Hole Afternoon Tea











I know I don't usually post on Mondays but this long weekend has got me all discombobulated and I thought yesterday was Saturday. So Happy Easter Monday lovely people!  As the Easter bunny has visited, and left you all a ton of chocolate I hope, now seemed like an appropriate time to tell you about the time me, my mum and sister went down the rabbit hole (metaphorically not actually) and had an Alice in Wonderland themed afternoon tea. 

A few Saturday's ago my sister and I took our mum to The Sugar Boutique in Knebworth for afternoon tea, as a belated mother's day treat, and we had the best time. Tea, chat and lots of cake are three of my favourite things. Add two of my favourite people to that equation and I really did have a great time. 

The Sugar Boutique is the cutest little shop. It's themed around Alice in Wonderland, the owner Natasha, told us that it was her favourite book when she was little, and the shop she's created is absolutely adorable. It's very warm and welcoming with a lovely atmosphere. And the food was amazing!  Like seriously. There were tiny chicken and bacon sandwiches, egg mayonnaise stuffed pastry carrots, crackers with cheese and chutney, mini victoria sponge cakes, marshmallows, pocket watch iced shortbread biscuits, chocolate cup cakes in jars with iced shortbread bunny ears, strawberries and white chocolate and raspberry mousse in glass teacups. Everything was delicious, particularly the bunny cupcakes in jars! Which was so good I didn't get a picture of it before I'd starting  shovelling it in to my face. 

We had such a lovely afternoon. The staff, Natasha and Kirsty, were really friendly and so accommodating. The Sugar Boutique doesn't have an alcohol license but they were happy to let us take a bottle of prosecco with us, so we could toast our mum with some bubbles, and they were really nice about me taking pictures - some places can be a bit funny about it. - Honestly, I can't recommend it enough. If you live in Hertfordshire, and can get to Knebworth, then you need to pay a visit to The Sugar Boutique. It costs £20 per person and if you'd like to make a booking then you can contact The Sugar Boutique on 01438 221144 or via email at sugarboutique@icloud.com. You can also find them on instagram, twitter, facebook and their website www.sugar-boutique.co.uk
