Los Angeles: The Peninsula Hotel

Los Angeles: The Peninsula Hotel


Sipping Tea, Spilling Tea...

Do you ever have a weekend that just screams perfection!? You know, one full of great food, friends, endless laughter and happy moments... my weekend went exactly that way! The highlight of it was with one of my best friends as we celebrated our "10 year Friendaversary" over afternoon tea at The Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills. It was the perfect excuse to dress up, give gifts and indulge in Saturday gossip! I had so much fun shopping for the perfect tea party dress and accessories.


The Peninsula is a classic Los Angeles staple that offers 5-star service all around. While we didn't get to stay there this go around, we were certainly treated like hotel guests! While waiting for my friend, I captured some of the lovely details and decor. We sat for the 2:30 PM Saturday tea which was perfect as we were able to catch the sunset and beautiful pictures on the patio following. They also offer a sitting at noon and at 5:00 PM. We both had the Royal Tea which included an assortment of yummy finger foods, a selection of tea and a glass of bubbly!


We laughed so much, caught up on each other's lives (not that we don't text like everyday!), gossiped, exchanged gifts, enjoyed the wonderful selection of finger sandwiches and desserts and toasted over champagne. It really was the perfect way to celebrate our friendship and reminded me how grateful I am to have amazing and quality girlfriends to journey through this life with! I hope you do too!


The Peninsula is a definite LA must see so make sure to check it out for your next birthday, bridal shower, celebration or just to cheers to life!


 Get inspired for your next tea party!
