Sabrina Chakici - Clutch and Carry on - Style blogger - BAGLIONI hotel afternoon tea christmas-5On Thursday I had the pleasure of visiting the Baglioni London for their Christmas afternoon tea. If you are looking for an alternative date this season I would highly recommend it. The spread has all the delights of their infamously yummy afternoon tea but with a delicious festive twist.Sabrina Chakici - Clutch and Carry on - UK Style blog - street style london, folli follie watch, uk travel blogger-211

Sabrina Chakici - Clutch and Carry on - UK Style blog - street style london, folli follie watch, uk travel blogger-215I chose to eat outdoors seeing as the weather was lovely that day, the team at the Baglioni were more than happy to set me up in front of their stunning designer Christmas tree, although, they did think I was a little bit crazy for wanting to eat outdoors in December!

Luckily my photographer for the day, Rahul, lent me his coat – which I now need to steal more often! That or find a similar ladies style 😉Sabrina Chakici - Clutch and Carry on - Style blogger - BAGLIONI hotel afternoon tea christmas-2

Sabrina Chakici - Clutch and Carry on - Style blogger - BAGLIONI hotel afternoon tea christmas-11For me this is the perfect way to spend a winter’s day in the run up to Christmas. Maybe you have planned to take your mum to see a west end show? Why not visit here first and enjoy the culinary delights and suburb service pre theatre?

Or maybe you’d love this for an afternoon with the girls? The feast will certainly provide all of those much needed instagram moments and the ambience inside the hotel is so warm and inviting, don’t blame me if you end up sending all afternoon and evening here 😉 Sabrina Chakici - Clutch and Carry on - Style blogger - BAGLIONI hotel afternoon tea christmas-7

Sabrina Chakici - Clutch and Carry on - Style blogger - BAGLIONI hotel afternoon tea christmas-6Thank-you to the Baglioni for once again being amazing hosts and coming up with yet another fantastic afternoon tea that I just had to share with you all!

If you can’t make if down during the festive period you can always opt for their standard afternoon tea (See blog post here) or Aperitivo (See blog post here).

Seasons Greetings!
