I hope you are all well!
Last Saturday was the International Lolita Day, one of the two in each year when us, Lolitas meet our fellow friends and celebrate fashion we all love.
This year I was lucky to get this day off at work, and I met with group of my close friends for an afternoon tea. I really wanted it to be something more special than regular tea that we normally have at our meets. I tried to find something nice in Bristol, but no luck, so I turned my search to Bath area and I decided on a very elegant and posh high afternoon tea at the Royal Crescen Hotel. I have never been there and I didn't know what to expect really. I was also a bit worried that it might be a bit too high end for our little group and we might not feel as relaxed like at the smaller and more casual tea place. I was more than happy to discover that even if this restaurant was so elegant and posh, all of the staff and waiters made us feel very welcomed!
We ordered an afternoon tea which consisted a selection of sandwiches, fruit and plain scones and selection of pettit fours, with rose water and raspberry macarons! (and thew other tasty treats which names I can't remember now :P )
We were offered a selection of speciality teas and most of us went for a beautifully sounded "Green Eight Butterflies". It was so delicious!
Maria's gluten free selection with cute little mini macarons!
Our waiter was so kind he took a photo of us!
There was also a very nice gentleman playing piano on the hall, but I forgot to take photo with him! :)
Even at such an elegant restaurant we couldn't resist shenanigans by the table! :P
After meal we went outside to the garden area and took some photos,
Everyone looked so lovely!
I like how we all surprisingly went for a classic/royal theme!
My coord rundown:
JSK: Innocent World
Blouse: Alice and the Pirates
Crown: Baby the Stars Shine Bright
Tights, shoes: Taobao
We also took some selfies! <3
I can never be serious around Ziggi! <3
There was this very odd hanging seat, which looked like a piece of art....
Bexy and Ziggi were very comfortable inside of it but when I tried it, it gave a motion sickness!
I wanted this day to be a bit more special and I wanted every lady to have a small souvenir from International Lolita Day, so I made little gift bags for everyone. Nothing special, just some printed postcards (one I designed night before... :P ) and Japanese sweets. One was very odd, a prune covered in a weird jelly......
I really enjoyed this meet and I am glad that I risked and booked table at the Royal Crescent Hotel. It's perfect for Lolita afternoon teas and in my opinion it can even compete with London class hotels! I hope we will be able to visit it again in the future :)
I hope you all enjoyed this post. I would also like to know how you spent your International Lolita Day this year! :) <3
