Palos Verdes Afternoon Tea & Miss Potter Screening

Palos Verdes Afternoon Tea & Miss Potter Screening

Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy

The Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy is presenting their Beauty of Nature series, this time with an Afternoon Tea and a screening of Miss Potter at the Trump National Golf Club on Sunday, April 19, 2015, from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m.  The Beauty of Nature is a film series that celebrates our natural surroundings and the artists who capture nature’s beauty in their life’s work.

The story of Miss Potter’s life work (stories like Peter Rabbit and many other memorable characters) resulted in tremendous commercial success.  This allowed Beatrix Potter the funds needed to buy and protect 4,000 acres of farmland in England’s Lake District by gifting the acreage to a National Land Trust.

For more information about Afternoon Tea and Miss Potter’s screening, click here.  The ticket price is $50 per person and can be purchased by clicking here.  There will also be a luxury English vacation opportunity drawing where you can win a trip to England for two – five nights in five star hotels plus a travel allowance – and see the Lake District.  The winner does not need to be present to win.  Only 300 tickets will be sold for the opportunity drawing (separate from admission to the tea) and tickets can be purchased by calling (310) 541-7613.

Afternoon Tea In Hermosa Beach

Afternoon Tea In Hermosa Beach

Afternoon Tea in Hermosa Beach

Last week, I attended an Afternoon Tea in Hermosa Beach in honor of our friend Lisa who was visiting from from Atlanta.  The attendees each brought a savory, sweet or scones and the hostess created an incredible table setting with vintage china, a tablecloth embroidered in Austria and fresh flowers. Our Afternoon Tea included wild blueberry & date/pecan scones (from L’Amande Bakery in Torrance), 3 different kinds of tea sandwiches, deviled eggs, stuffed peppers, nut cookies, lemon tea cookies, cheese crackers, fresh fruit, a plate of petite desserts, homemade lemon curd, plum jam, devonshire cream and Irish butter.   Afterwards, we sat out in the garden and enjoyed more tea and conversation.

Hermosa Beach Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea is such a relaxing tradition and fairly easy to set up when you have a few friends willing to bring a dish to share.  The hostess provides the setting and usually the tea.  The guests can bring their own tea cup and it makes for an interesting discussion to learn the story behind each cup.  This Afternoon Tea was extraordinary with the hostess also providing savory & sweet biscuits and fresh fruit from the Hermosa Beach Farmer’s Market.  Another enjoyable afternoon that felt like a mini vacation!

Afternoon Tea At Trump National in Palos Verdes

It has been several years since I enjoyed Afternoon Tea at Trump National which is the only place you can experience afternoon tea in the Palos Verdes/South Bay area.  They serve Naja Tea which has unique and flavorful blends of teas and is one of my favorite teas.  I ordered their delicious “Mix & Mingle” tea which is a blend of black tea, rooibos tea, toasted coconut, chocolate and vanilla.

The setting is hard to beat at Trump National with its beautiful views of the ocean, Catalina island and the golf course.  Our favorite sandwich was the Curried Chicken on a Croissant.  Our favorite scone was the cranberry and I really enjoyed their Deep Chocolate Brownie.  The service is excellent.

Afternoon Tea is a great way to celebrate a birthday or just have a relaxing afternoon with friends and is one of my favorite things to do.  Afternoon Tea is served Monday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m and 48 hour reservations are necessary.  For reservations or more information, call 310-303-3260.  Trump National is located at One Trump National Drive, Rancho Palos Verdes 90275.
