My Birthday Afternoon Tea at the Langham Chicago

January 10, 2018

This past Monday, I celebrated my birthday!! Yes, it was my birthday!

Iโ€™m always excited for my birthday however this time I was under the weather with a severe cold. I kept sneezing and blowing my nose โ€“ it was definitely not cute at all. Although I do have plans to celebrate with my friends this weekend, I wanted to do something special on my actual birthdayโ€”even though it was a Monday ๐Ÿ™ .

Right away, I knew I wanted to spend the day in the most elegant and relaxing way possible: afternoon tea. Being Peruvian, we drink tea on a daily basis (usually at night) to unwind and relax. I went to the Pavilion, a beautiful and upscale place that boasts high ceilings and a city view, located on the second floor of the Langham Hotel Chicago. It was the perfect spot for me to feel like a queen. Plus, I knew that Adrienne Bailon and a few of my favorite bloggers have been spotted enjoying an afternoon tea there as well.

The traditional afternoon tea was served in grand style. It started off with sparkling wine while debating what kind of tea we desired.ย I chose the Palm Court Blendย an exclusive and unique blend of the finest quality Chinese white tea, hibiscus flowers, rosehip, and pink rose petals. Once settled on a tea choice, we sat back and indulged in the relaxing ambiance which included a view of the Chicago River. They served us hand-crafted sandwiches and later sweet culinary delicacies.

The staff was highly attentive and kind. I was surprised with a birthday cake and a special gift!

Despite being ill, it was nice to put on a pretty dress and spend my birthday relaxing and being stress free. Hereโ€™s to another year and I canโ€™t wait to see whatโ€™s in store. ๐Ÿ™‚

Tea time is a chance to slow down, pull back and appreciate our surroundings.
