Valentine’s Day is coming up and what a better way to celebrate it than with a high tea party.
I LOVE high tea! There was a time just before I had kids where I would for high tea place almost every month with girlfriends. It’s the most perfect way to catch up with friends while drinking tea and eating scones with pretty china.
My boyfriend Aaron loves high tea too and over the Christmas holidays we had a three-day mini vacation to Victoria and stayed at the Empress Hotel and had high tea there. The hotel is one of the oldest hotels in the city right next to the Parliament buildings and is famous for their high tea.
