Wimbledon Afternoon Tea with Ladbrokes

Yesterday, Ladbrokes Bingo generously invited me along to the Landmark Hotel to enjoy their Wimbledon themed afternoon tea! Although I'm not huge on tennis (I played when I was about 8 and continuously lost in tournaments, despite my yearning to one day get to wear a tennis skirt), this event was a wonderful way to celebrate the event.

It was hosted at the 5 star Landmark Hotel in Marylebone, one of my favorite parts of the city. The interior courtyard of the hotel is just gorgeous and is like a little oasis in the middle of London, complete with palm trees!

Once we settled down, we were treated to Wimbledon themed party favors. And with these heatwave coming up, this hat is going to get its use, trust me!

First came the tea. I opted for traditional green:

Then, we were treated to some yummy sandwiches--chicken, egg and cress, cucumber and salmon. They were, in a word, delightful.

This was followed by apple scones (though raisins are also on offer) and jam. I haven't quite gotten the hang of the clotted cream thing, so I passed, but I was still pretty excited about my jam and scones.

And lastly, we got a tray of tiny desserts: strawberry cheesecake, Pim's and mint, a pistachio sponge with rose champagne gel and chocolate mousse with Earl Gray ganache. Just look at those adorable tennis balls!

It was a fabulous afternoon that we were treated to, and I loved being able to meet other bloggers as a bonus. Now, on to the goal of one day staying at The Landmark as a guest....
