My Bridal Shower High Tea!

With the wedding almost upon us, this weekend my bridesmaids and I were treated to a beautiful high tea prepared for us by the fabulous and incredibly talented, kind and absolutely lovely staff of QT hotel on the Gold Coast. I am incredibly lucky to have these beautiful women in my life and the bridal shower was the perfect opportunity for everyone who hadn't yet met to spend a fun afternoon together and get to know each other before the wedding. There was much to discuss; hair, flowers, shoes - and the tea and champagne helped to make those difficult decisions a little easier!

Earl, our wonderful chef brought out a delicious selection of handmade sweet and savory treats that were almost too beautiful to eat - and tasted just as they looked. For me personally, the highlight were the savory tomato and basil macrons - an unusual combination of flavors for what is traditionally a desert that go so well as a macaron. With such a wide selection of food on offer from miniature donuts topped with rare wagyu to pumpkin and pine nut quiches, there was something to tempt everyone, and with such a large amount of food the struggle was real to try a bit of everything!

There were several moments where I had to resist the urge to pinch myself because it all felt like a dream - only unlike the dreams where one is about to sit down to a delicious meal only to wake up soon as the food reaches your mouth - I could actually taste the shortbread and scones. It was wonderful to spend the day drinking champagne with my favorite people and it makes me even more excited for the wedding! With it's fabulous 1950s aesthetic QT is the ultimate place to visit for vintage lovers and I would absolutely recommend treating yourself and your loved ones to the brilliant QT High Tea.

  5. That looks fabulous! I love high teas but I do find they they often have the same old stuff, when something more unusual would be a nice change. It sounds like this place has that sorted!
