Halloween 2016 Round Up - Spooky Afternoon Teas!

Hello there,

With Halloween just around the corner we thought we would share with you some of the spooky afternoon teas we've discovered this year....

Let's start with The Milestone Hotel in London....

Their selection of spooky pastries including....
Wickedly witchy cupcake,
Garishly ghoulish
Orange & chocolate macaroon,
Morbid mummy / deadly Dracula ├ęclair
Spider's web vanilla cheesecake
£40 per person

The Park Lane Hotel is offering a slightly different Halloween afternoon tea this year...

Yes, it's a magic themed afternoon tea (for people like me who don't really like magic this is quite horrifying!!). To celebrate Halloween, The Park Lane Hotel have crafted a magic Afternoon Tea to pay tribute to Harry Houdini on the 90th anniversary of his death in this menu available 28th - 31st October. 

Diners can indulge in a complimentary elusive cocktail alongside a range of themed treats while enjoying some top class close up magic from magician Tony Middleton, who has appeared on Penn & Teller: Fool us and is the star of the hit London show, The Magic Hour.

Or how about the Halloween edition of the Lancaster London ARTea....

How amazing does that look...let's see what it includes...

A collection of Sandwiches & Savoury bites...
Smoked in the fires of hell salmon on granary
Axe carved beef with horseradish
Smashed egg and crazy wild cress on blood bread
Cucumber coffins 
Devilled chorizo tartlet
Fried until dead veggie Scotch eggs

"Slate of the Art" Scones 
Plain and raisin the dead scones, congealed jam and blood clotted cream
Pumpkin scones with cremated blood orange marmalade
Artists tube of home-made strawberry jam 
Artists tube of Cornish clotted cream . 

When you have brushed the rest aside enjoy a gallery of devillicious sweet bites
Chocolate graveyard
Spider web lollipop
Shattered glass cupcakes
Frankenstein macaroons
Bloodied finger ├ęclair

ArTea  is available at £26.25 Per Person

Bea's of Bloomsburys has created all kinds of spooky sweet treats...

A ghoulish Halloween gift box with 6 hauntingly creepy decorated cupcakes, including 2 Red Velvet; 2 double chocolate and 2 pumpkin vanilla.

Or how about these spiced pumpkin macaroons....

Not going to be in London this Halloween....never fear we've also found some spooky offerings slightly further afield!

If you fancy combining a day out at The Tropical Butterfly House in South Yorkshire with a spot of spooky afternoon tea, this October you can have an extra special Halloween themed Afternoon Tea for Two for £34 including admission to the Wildlife Centre.....

Monsters, ghosts and eyeballs.....something for everyone here!

Even Disneyland is getting a bit spooky with their  “Trick or Tea” afternoon tea...

The sweet treats include chocolate-dipped strawberries decorated to look like Jack Skellington’s suit and a jack-o’-lantern pumpkin!

If you enjoy a tea-riffic Halloween themed afternoon tea we'd love to hear all about it - send us a photo on Twitter or Facebook!

Thank you for popping by today,
