Just a heads up, this is the most sugary sweet blog post I will ever publish - Full of images beautiful pastel colours, yummy finger foods and ALL THE FLOWERS, it's pretty photo heavy too. You have been warned...
My little sister is two weeks away from giving birth to her first child (and boy do we know about it) so t'other Sunday my Mum organised her an Afternoon Tea at Mama Doreen's Emporium for her baby shower. (It's on Coldbath Road in Harrogate and their facebook is here).
Over the course of two hours we decorated cupcakes with cute fondant babies, guessed the poop, tried to guess how big my sister's bump was (her & her flatmate cheater) and ate a lot of delicious food.
Included in the Afternoon Tea was prosecco, orange juice, dipped strawberries, various savoury stuff (they did THE BEST creamy egg mayo mix on a brioche bread bun) aswell as some amazing sweet stuff (chocolate cupcakes and chocolate dipped shortbread anyone?). We also got to pick one drink off the menu and I went for a white hot chocolate with marshmallows and cream. When I say it tasted like something the angel fairy chefs made I mean it. It was super sweet and filling though so I wouldn't advise downing half of it before the food comes out (like I did).
I *think* my Sister had a good time and it was nice to have all the female members of our family in one place, as well as meeting her boyfriend's family for the first time.
I'd recommend the afternoon tea to anyone looking for a nice place to eat in Harrogate - It's something a little bit different to your usual pub grub and the emporium itself is just so lovely and Instagram worthy. I can't wait to drag Jody back there for another hot chocolate and maybe one of their incredible cupcakes.
The prices for the regular afternoon tea are shown in the image below although I do believe my Mum paid extra to have all the games and things included.
Have you guys ever been for afternoon tea? And if not do you fancy it now?

The branding and theme of Mama Doreen's is just so cool, loved it.
The menu board at Mama Doreen's - It's making me drool think about it!
Mama Doreen's was perfect, interior wise.
The colour scheme is perfect for Spring.
How good is the cupcake I decorated? Seriously missed my calling.
The hot chocolate that dreams are made of, the food arrangements and the wee plates and cups.
