Planning the Halloween party this year fell under my parameter of responsibilities. I went a little out of the box and decided on a costumed tea party at Mountain Oaks Manor. Our team, plus my daughter, all put on Halloween costumes and had a lovely high tea. Just what we needed, to get out of the office, relieve stress, be silly, and fancy at the same time!
We each ordered a pot of tea and scones for the table. The lemon curd that accompanied the scones had a delicious and tart taste with fresh cream whipped to perfection. Each pot of tea came out steaming hot in beautifully unique teapots, with sugar cubes and cream. Precisely what I had always imagined a tea party would be — elegant, intimate, and relaxing. Sitting with the Queen, a blue alien, and a pirate clown was different but perfect!
We talked about travel, work, and of course, the Queen while sipping our tea waiting for our entrees. Our plates came with beautiful and fresh food. Our group ate every bite of every dish and still ordered desserts! We had a proper time with a proper three-course meal, and we all felt like royalty.
Mountain Oaks Manor is the perfect place for an office team to get together and treat themselves. I have recommended checking out their website to everyone I know, and I have already had a second lovely lunch there! Now that the Christmas decorations are out, the Manor has a whole new magic to it! If you are looking for a spacious, quaint place to have an office party, tea with the ladies, or an intimate lunch, Mountain Oaks Manor is the perfect place!
