A Kitchen Tea made by Jozi Foodie Fix

A couple of weeks ago I organised a Kitchen Tea for one of my beautiful friends Ashleigh. The brief I got from Ashleigh's mum was that it has to be beautiful, tasteful and elegant.  The Kitchen Tea was hosted at the Munro Boutique Hotel that has a spectacular view of Johannesburg's urban forest. Dress code was casual elegance with a hat or fascinator.

The Munro provided a wonderful variety of sweet and savoury treats for the high tea, including cucumber sandwiches, pumpkin scones, chocolate cups and mille feuilles. The Kitchen Tea was an intimate affair and time for the bride to be to mingle with her closest friends. Games included What's in your bag (the ice breaker), a bride quiz and dress the cake. Prizes for guests included champagne, chocolates and of course slices of the wonderful 'dress the cake' mini cakes. Party favours were beautifully wrapped macarons (macaroons). I sourced the mini cakes and the macarons and had them brought in to The Munro.
