Bits and bobs from my fantastic Hen-do at the Oxo Tower. Thanks to Siobhan, Fran and Ant!
The blurb from the Oxo website:
ALICE IN WONDERLAND NOT AFTERNOON TEA
Our extraordinary new Not Afternoon Tea experience is not all it seems…
We’re super excited. And you should be too.
We’ve a rather marvellous new Not Afternoon Tea experience to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland.
In the words of The Mad Hatter “it’s always tea time”, and at OXO this spring, we couldn’t agree more. Join us for a mysterious ‘Eat Me, Drink Me’ surprise on arrival, then fall down the rabbit hole as you enjoy a seasonal Not Afternoon Tea plate of your choice with a bespoke cocktail and a few surprises along the way…
Continue your adventure through Wonderland with the delicious Golden Afternoon cocktail and a box of Alice-themed treats to take home.

Tea plate choices:
I Am The Forager combines the best of the season on one plate with crab apples, acorns and wild yellow plums bringing both sweet and creamy notes to some classic desserts.
Fun Fair is a sugary homage to nights spent riding the waltzers and spinning tea cups with warming popcorn pannacotta, marshmallow and candyfloss, and cinnamon dusted apple and custard doughnuts.
If you’re never one to turn down something ‘chocolatey’ then Nuts About Chocolate with its milk chocolate and hazelnut tart (think posh nutella) and white chocolate pistachio cone will certainly give you the fix you’re after. Especially when washed down with Frappé, a milkshake that’s strictly for adults.
