A High Tea Affair

We recently attended a Mother's Day High Tea Affair hosted by Africa on My Sleeve at the historic Alberton House in Mt. Albert. Founded by Zimbabwe born Makanaka Tuwe, Africa on My Sleeve provides a gateway for African inspired art and fashion in New Zealand and Australia.

The afternoon high tea party included sandwiches, bruschetta, gourmet scones, sweet treats served on antique china sets and traditional three tier plates. We received a glass of sparkling wine on arrival and special blended teas and roasted coffee were available during the tea.

We also wandered around the mansion and its gorgeous surrounds. Luckily, there were talented photographers on hand to snap a few pics of us. We loved the contrast between our chic, modern outfits and the historical backdrop of the laundry room. 

Here are a few more snaps for your viewing pleasure. 

We hope you enjoyed this post! Let us know what you think in the comments section.
