Afternoon Tea at the Plaza


My mom, sister, and I had tea at the Plaza today (yesterday? it's after midnight right now, oops.) It was so cute and really tasty and the weather was also pretty cooperative which made for a great day. We still had to wear warm coats, but it was sunny! That's a start. I can't believe I was wearing sandals last week. Come on weather.

I had one of the best teas I've ever had- Tuscan Pear Rooibus tea. The next time I'm in Manhattan I'll definitely pick some up to take home. We also had delicious little sandwiches, scones, and desserts. I think this was my first time in the Plaza and I'd definitely like to go back.

After we finished our tea we took a little stroll through Central Park. It was a little sad that the Wollman Skating Rink was still open.. I mean, it's March. Shouldn't the ice melt? No more ice. Please. Other than that, I love the park.

We also stopped at Bergdorf Goodman. I was still holding onto a Bergdorf giftcard that I got for Christmas and I finally found something I could afford to purchase. Everything I picked up in there was at least $1,000. Not kidding. I finally found a super cute pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses (which I'm wearing in the pictures!) that didn't destroy my bank account. Actually, after the giftcard they only cost me 6 bucks. Score.

Oddly enough, afternoon tea at the restaurant in Bergdorf is a bit more affordable than afternoon tea in the Plaza. My mom and sister had tea at Bergdorf last year and loved it. They also said they had a great view of the city from their table, so check that out if the Plaza is a little too pricey.

We walked for about 4 hours in total and Marissa and I went running this morning- probably not necessary, but oh well. That said, I'm exhausted. I hope it's sunny tomorrow so I can wear my new sunglasses!

  3. oohh how fun! Do they serve coffee at tea??? I've tried so many different kinds and sad to say I just don't like it. But I want the food :) Sweet deal on the sunglasses! So jealous.

  4. I loove the plaza! I've never been inside of it, but I love the look of it from the outside! Those little snacks look soo good! I am so jealous of your closeness to NYC. SO fun!

  5. Great pictures as usual! It looks like your livin the dream! and I kinda wanna jump in...but then you'd be all "Who is this awkward canadian who is terrified of new york sitting at our table?" and that would just be weird.


  6. hm, i'm not sure if they serve coffee, i didn't notice it, but i'd imagine they would offer it! and shy, nah it would be totally cool if you showed up for tea hehe and the city isn't scary, i promise!

  7. These shots are sooooo lovely! Oh how I miss NY!

  8. Afternoon Tea at the Plaza sounds and looks fabulous! NYC is the best! xo

  9. I love the photo of the New York street in particular. Blogs such as yours, serving as a window/'snapshot' into another's life - are such a cool idea, not to mention very inspiring.

  10. Oh I absolutely adore this post! Everything about it is lovelovelove! Tea at The Plaza? Have I mentioned that it's my dream to visit NY? It is! And all these snapshots (not from the TV) really excites & inspires me all the more! The Plaza from Bride Wars, and a whole load of NY from Gossip Girl and many other tv series/movies. Thank you for sharing about your lovely outing! :) Also, these are really and so very beautiful photos! x
