A couple of weekends ago I was invited to a really exciting blogger event! I don’t often go to many blogger events as they are almost always in London; but this one was worth attending! Luckily it was on a Saturday afternoon and as London is only a short train ride away I went to the big city for the day and met up with Terri at Euston.
We were invited by Rennie and the event was held on a vintage bus that drives around Central London whilst we got to indulge in a delicious afternoon tea spread! The big red bus was kitted out inside with little tables and traditional seats as well as a kitchen area for the staff to prepare the goodies. Everything was beautifully laid out ready for us when we hopped on the bus and we had everything we needed to keep us happy for the next hour and a half.
The B Bakery bus drove started off at The London Eye and then drove past major landmarks Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, Marble Arch, Kensington etc. It was really lovely to be able to see London so easily without having to walk around everywhere, although it was quite tricky to get good photos whilst the bus was moving. Although I think the vintage bus and the afternoon tea theme works really well together!
The afternoon tea consisted of savoury bites: finger sandwiches, mini chicken baps, cheese and mushroom quiches, and little salmon and cream cheese crackers (these were delicious!). There was then a mound of sweet things and pastries to enjoy including cream puffs, cupcakes, macaroons, lemon meringues, and fruity custard tarts. I was starting to get pretty full by the point, however then they brought around plates of scones with mini jars of strawberry jam and clotted cream. My belly was ready to burst! Luckily I didn’t suffer from any indigestion, but I did feel a little bit sick eating whilst on a moving vehicle.
We were also offered hot drinks which were served in their cute little customised plastic tumbler cups with rubber lids (to stop spillages!). I enjoyed a delicious hot chocolate and they also gave us little bottles of fresh orange juice or water too, which was very welcome on a warm day.
Overall it was a really lovely expereince and I enjoyed getting to meet new bloggers for such a fun day out in London! It’s definitely a fun experience, and as a frequent afternoon tea gobbler, I have to say this was actually really high quality and delicious. Thank you Rennie!
