Confession time. I didn't watch any of the royal nuptials. I know, crazy as it is I may be the only one in the entire universe who doesn't give a crap that history was made today. I just remember as a child watching Diana and Charles walk down the aisle, millions of us sharing in their joy thinking that it was the most amazing thing in the world, that a commoner married a prince. However, look at how their marriage turned out. Just sayin'.
On the bright side though, I do agree with one thing that the royal fans are doing to celebrate this oh so joyous event. It's having a tea party! Apparently there are thousands of tea parties happening all around the world, some starting as early as 4am (what the hell?). And lucky me, I recently had the opportunity to join two of my dearest friends for our own adult 'tea party' at the Windor Arms Hotel here in Toronto:
|The hats are for display only, I got in trouble for trying to put one on (hence, no picture of me in old lady hats)|
|This is where we ate, and ate, and ate (until they kicked us out)|
|Scones, mini sandwiches, whipped cream and jam. SO.GOOD.|
|Oooohh, Dessert time, my favorite time of the day!|
An absolute fun time was had by all. Not the cheapeast food (starts at $35 per sitting) but the experience is definitely worthwhile. Plus it all doesn't look like a lot of food but all those carbs filled us up so quickly that we had to take a care package home. If you are ever in the Toronto area, you should definitely check out the Windsor arms hotel for their high tea package. And the great thing is that you didn't have to be part of royalty to enjoy such a fabulous ritual :)
What about you? Did you get a chance to watch the royal wedding? Was it worth the hype?
