I like this little Ferragamo pocketbook...it would not hold much...but it is tres cute!My trusty Ferragamo pumps (I promise I do produce other sneakers y'all...), gold Rolex watch, pearl earrings and bracelet, and my Cartier marriage ceremony band.Let's go inside for tea...in the Foyer Lounge of the Ritz. For sure, every thing is beautifully appointed down to the final detail! Afternoon Tea at the Ritz-Carlton is a ritual steeped in tradition because the resort opened in 1985. Tea is served using tremendous Wedgewood china, decorated within the delicate "India" sample. Every element of the service and its presentation is attended to with the utmost care to ensure that every experience at the Ritz turns into a treasured memory. After all, there was a pianist taking part in delicate music on the child grand...simply excellent for Afternoon Tea. Now y'all know this gentleman by no means tires of watching all the prissy ladies strolling through the Lobby of the Ritz!
The simple, yet elegant tablesetting. Notice the crisp white linens, and that the cup handle is placed in the four o'clock place and the fold of the napkin is closest to the plate. I selected to take the standard Tea Service, which consisted of freshly steeped free leaf tea and a collection of dainty tea sandwiches, freshly baked scones, and fruit tartlets and pastries. Two teas were served whith this service--the very professional server Dominique prompt the Vanilla Rooibos and i chose the Thunderbolt Darjeeling. The Rooibos is a caffeine-free herbal infusion, not a tea. The vanilla beans gave the rooibos just the correct candy style. The Darjeeling (champagne of teas) was a really brisk tea with a trace of muscatel. This is the tiered tea tray with all of the goodies...only for Miss Janice! While having Fake Ferragamo Belt with my tea, I practiced every dining etiquette rule I've ever recognized and I need to say, it was so nice to be surrounded by others who were doing the identical! It goes without saying...there were no pinkies raised in this place! The Ritz even has their own emblem of the lion and crown on the tea tray!
Sugar cubes, a must for Afternoon tea... Devonshire cream and fruit preserves have been served with the scones and though I did not taste the preserves...aren't the little containers simply too cute! Now y'all know I simply should award the Ritz-Carlton "5 Silver Spoons." Thank you to the waitstaff on your impeccable customer support!
