Afternoon Tea Beside The Sea

For my birthday last year, my Year 5 team got me an afternoon tea for two in Brighton. I decided to take my better half with me and we picked an absolutely gorgeous day for it last weekend.


I picked up this dress at Retrofest last year. I had to wear it by the sea as it has subtle seaweed and starfish patterns. I also added to the sea-theme by adding a prawn brooch and vintage mussel earrings. I know I’m a bit ridiculous.

Exploring Brighton

After our drive, we started off with coffee. We then took a long stroll through the Lanes before heading to our afternoon tea spot.

Metro Deco

We arrived at Metro Deco on time and both of us were gasping for a cuppa. The waiting staff were really friendly and helpful; they gave use lots of tea suggestions. I went for an incredibly fruity tea and Nick went for lemon and ginger. I was particularly pleased when I found out I could have as many different teas as I wanted – I am a tea fiend. The spread was delicious and both of us left full and happy.

The Seaside

With full tummies, we decided a long walk by the sea would be a good idea. It was also a good opportunity to faff about in my dress.

It was just what we needed – a day to ourselves doing what we do best: eat, explore and laugh. I’m already looking forward to more of these days in the summer.

  1. Sounds like such a lovely day! 🙂 And also, oh my gosh, your hair is perfect and I love everything you’re wearing! Fabulous! I was also wondering where you got your glasses, because they’re amazing and I’ve been looking for a pair like them everywhere. 🙂
