Raise your cups for the Ladies who Tea!

Tea cups were clinking and the sound of laughter tittered from the Langtry Manor drawing room this afternoon as our very own Tara Howard hosted the Business Women Awards Afternoon Tea. Finalists and Sponsors alike flocked to the hotel today to catch up with one another, meet the press, and most importantly, eat cake! The ladies (and a few gents) arrived promptly at 2.00pm after excusing themselves from their various duties. The party gathered in the lounge as our famous Langtry Tea was served.

Chef excelled himself with homemade berry cheesecake, adorable mini pavlovas, and a nutty chocolate tart to die for! His signature scones were still warm from the oven as talk turned from remarkable business achievements to what dress to wear to the upcoming ball!  Attendees of the event, which precedes the grand awards ceremony and gala dinner on May 17th, thoroughly enjoyed the spread. And though they proclaimed they couldn’t eat another bite, several left with doggie bags to indulge in later!

Despite camaraderie between the category finalists, competition to win the sought-after awards is certainly stiff. As ticket requests flood in for the fully booked awards final later this month, we wait with bated breath to see which of the fabulous contenders emerge victorious!
