REVISIT: Holiday High Tea at the Drake

Over my holiday vacation, I revisited Palm Court at the Drake to enjoy their high tea service with my Mom, sister Lauren (who was in town from New York), and sister-in-law, Melissa.

We met at the Drake on a chilly winter afternoon. It was very crowded, but luckily they were waiting for us, and we were seated at a nice round table in a quieter area of the grand room. I ordered “my usual” (chamomile citrus), while the girls ordered an assortment of black teas.

I’ve shared with you the menu of assorted breads, sandwiches, and pastries before, so be sure to check out the photos below as the offerings were slightly different than before, especially the desserts (the spiced cheesecake with the cute little gingerbread chocolate was my fave). It was fun to just relax from the busy holiday season to enjoy time with the ladies in my family.

It was extra special for us to have time with Lauren, who has three adorable small children (two hilarious girls and a sweet baby boy), which means she’s usually pretty busy, as you can imagine. Thank you for organizing, Melissa!
