Today, I went to something I have been wanting to for years…a High Tea!

Well, I went more as a spectactor…and official photographer…as my food allergies prevented me from sampling all the food delights…but more on that another time!

I went with a group of girls to the High Tea at The Gables in Malvern East…a gorgeous old mansion that is well known in Melbourne as a wedding venue.

Upon entering, we were greeted with a table full of dessert delights…macaroons, eclairs, cupcakes, chocolate in many forms etc and all looking very delicious!

Champagne was served!

Tea….the one thing I could have!


Then time for the desserts…


And here are some more pictures just to make you hungry…



And it is good to know that a portion of the profits from High Tea bookings goes to Evolve – the Victorian charity delivering early intervention programs for disadvantaged of at-risk young women!

High Tea at the Gables is every Wednesday and Sunday…bookings essential…there wasn’t a spare seat today!
