If you like tea and cake, acting like a lady and a little vintage flair then prepare for your heart to skip a beat, allow me to introduce to you The Silver Teaspoon. This Victorian Tea Room is located in Northcliff, Johannesburg and is a treasure trove of old school glamour and vintage delights.
I attended a tea party at The Silver Teaspoon for a friend’s farewell and I was not disappointed, from the moment I arrived I did not know where to look. The tables were decorated with gorgeous bouquets in silver teapots, old books were bound with lace and ribbons and adorned with pearls, ceramic birds and bunnies. Each table setting was different with mismatched teacups and saucers even our cutlery had a vintage look.
The day started with bubbles which we sipped from old style Champagne saucers, and then we moved along to the eating. The menu included indulgences like Avo mousse on rye with smoked salmon, Polenta disks with tomato chutney and goat’s cheese mousse, Pea soup, Custard fruit tarts, Pink macaroons with white chocolate filling and much much more. We were also offered a selection of teas and ice teas as well as more bubbles as the day progressed. The staff are friendly and helpful and the location is a converted house so expect to sit in the garden, on the deck or in a private room.
Luckily for us we had Carol from Eco-Chic Weddings in attendance who ensured the day was captured perfectly, I have taken a few of my favourite images from Andre Sonnekus Photography to share with you.
If you have a special occasion coming up or just feel like treating yourself to a girlie day then I recommend The Silver Teaspoon, it really offers something different.
