Scone Palace is opening its doors for a very special Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea on Sunday 30th March.
Tea will be served in the elegant and exclusive surroundings of the State Drawing Room, with its monogrammed royal blue and gold carpet, opulent Versailles treasures, exquisite French furniture, silk brocade wall coverings and portraits by Allan Ramsay, Sir Joshua Reynolds and Philip de Laszlo.
Guests will be able to enjoy a selection of freshly cut finger sandwiches, homemade scones with jam and cream and delicious cakes, accompanied by a selection of tea or coffee. For an added touch of sophistication, there is also an opportunity to upgrade to a ‘Luxury Afternoon Tea’ option, which includes a glass of champagne.
After tea, enjoy a stroll through the woodland and wild gardens with their borders, which in spring provide a spectacular backdrop to the drifts of daffodils that can be found throughout the grounds. The ancient crowning place of Scotland’s Kings, Moot Hill, is particularly colourful at this time of year. Other early-season plants are starting to emerge too, including the dainty primroses and enchanting primulas which peek through the woodland undergrowth and herald the arrival of warmer weather.
Heather McArthur, Events Manager at Scone Palace says: “This unique afternoon tea will be an elegant, stylish and sophisticated event, providing a special treat and a touch of luxury for mums everywhere”.
Afternoon Tea will take place from 2pm – 5pm. £38 for two (£16 per person thereafter). Upgrade to ‘Luxury Afternoon Tea’ for an additional £7 per person. Booking is essential, by going online at www.scone-palace.co.uk, telephoning 01738 552300 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
