Earlier this week I was invited to celebrate a family friend's 60th birthday in London at the Marriott Hotel. For those that don't know, the Marriott is quite a 'posh' hotel - comparable to The Ritz but quite a bit cheaper! The Marriott is located next to the London Eye overlooking Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament - the view from the windows was exquisite, especially with the Thames glistening in the gorgeous Summer sun!
Before we went there though, we popped in to see a certain someone at my Grans...
|It's KIT THE CAT!!|
|Like...how is that comfortable for a cat?!|
Anyway, back to the Marriott!
We even had the menu explained to us (emphasising our lack of knowledge for 'posh' food). There was mini strawberry cheesecake slices, coffee and nutella macaroons, a mini custard tart topped with a mini meringue and a mini strawberry cupcake - clearly 'miniature' was the theme! We also had scones (both savoury and sweet) and clotted cream and jam (which was soooo good) and sour cream and chive for the savoury. There were also a selection of meat and vegetarian sandwiches too, but I won't reel all those off for you!
|The table was laid out beautifully, I loved the little teacups!|
|We had a panna cotta as our 'starter' and you can see the selection of other treats we had!|
|My 'sieved' Earl Grey tea!|

|To the left of the photo is the London Eye - shows just how close the Marriott is, and the views were great!|
|London can be so beautiful, especially in the sun!|
p.s. the photos aren't brilliant quality as they were taken on my phone!
p.p.s. I have linked websites to the places I've mentioned in case you wanted to check any of them out!
