    I love high teas! How fun!

    I had never been to a tea service before last year, but I’ve been several times now and I really enjoy them. I would’ve never imagined I could get into something so…girly….but I’m into it! πŸ™‚

    I wished I lived closer to civilization so I could actually use Groupons! They never have Groupons for Wawa, so I’m out of luck πŸ™‚

    What an adorable place! I am looking for cute coffee shops and tea rooms in Jacksonville to set my work station at… Starbucks is getting a little boring.

    That looks like so much fun! I’ve never been to high tea! I would love to try it sometime. Those sandwiches look tasty! πŸ™‚ I’ve never bought any deals on Groupon or Living Social. I never end up seeing things that are close enough for me to try. I’m jealous πŸ™‚

    That place is so cute!! Love that they have hats to wear and everything! I get Living Social deals as well as Groupons and TeamBuys, but unfortunately the nearest Living Social city is Toronto and that’s usually a little too far for me to go. Oh well, hopefully as it gets more popular, we’ll get more in my city!

    Going for high tea is one of my favourite things to do! Love finger sandwiches, clotted cream (sounds disgusting, tastes heavenly) and scones. MMMMMM

    LOVE groupon and living social. I have an addiction to massages and facials that is supported by the deals on these sites!

    That looks so adorable! I’ve never experienced anything like that before.
    You reuse your tea bags? While that does seems eco friendly, it doesn’t sound very tasty :/
    Have a great day πŸ™‚

    I haven’t sat down for a “high tea” since I visited England quite a few years ago! Sounds like a fun afternoon catching up with a friend! I might just have to plan an afternoon out with friends like this!

    Group deal sites are the main way we’re able to eat out as well. Love those things!

    What a fun way to spend the afternoon with your friend! I’ve never done something like that and it looks like fun. Love deal sites like that πŸ™‚

    How cute! I <3 the little finger foods. Did you two happen to wear the hats to fully experience high tea? haha

    (BTW, I'm one of those weirdos who reads often and comments little. Hope you're not creeped out by my random comment. Your blog is lovely, by the way!)

    I love going to high tea. That strawberry soup looked really yummy!

    You have inspired me to get out and about when I do my daily writing – I need to hunt down a coffee shop with great ambiance.

    It looks divine! I’ve never had high tea, I might have to do something about that!

    Groupon is finally coming to New Zealand – and after seeing the great deals you’ve found, I can’t wait for it to arrive!

    What a cute and fun afternoon! We have high tea around here but it’s in all the fancy hotels. I would like to try the Park Plaza though; they have tea sommelier. πŸ™‚

    That sounds so cute! I went to a similar place with my mom, aunts and grandma when I was younger. It was magical back then!

    I hope your iced coffee is better than yesterday’s!

    I love A Corner of England! My mom lives in St. Pete and I’ve gone there many times. The owners are so nice and I just love everything about the place. I’m glad you had a coupon though, because one thing A Corner of England is not is cheap!

    Those places are so cute, but I refuse to try on the hats. I used to be an elementary teacher and know far too much about lice. I know, I know, I’m paranoid, and the odds tea shop patrons having lice is slim, but still. Those suckers creep me out.

    Hee. Sorry, but I love that at the “English” high tea experience, they serve brownies, the quintessential American sweet. Everything does look yummy, though! And if you haven’t ever been, totally put “high tea at Claridge’s” in London on your “To Do Before I Die” list! πŸ™‚

    I always hear the living social commercials on pandora but have never checked them out. Maybe I should. I’ve been in pittsburgh since august and still haven’t explored. Granted I have a 4 month old but still, I should get out a bit more!

    Aww, what a cute, dainty little place.

    I’d drag my husband there and make him drink tea and be uncomfortable. That’s what I do. Ha, I’m mean. J/K

    The tea experience looks super fun and I love finding new places to try – especially if a group deal site is involved!
    Although I do have to say, of all the things I take from your blog, wondering how you spend your money isn’t one of them lol.
