Children dined on house-made cotton candy served with a smile…..
In their own private tea-room children found fruit & marshmallow kebab bars and sundae bars
Children enjoyed Peninsula Hot Chocolate with Ovaltine (for adults Peninsula Hot Chocolate includes Felchlin Arriba, a specialty chocolate with black-currant notes, licorice fragrance and coffee—absolutely divine) while excitedly watching the magician, as parents slowly sipped specialty drinks like, Jasmine Lychée tea, Jasmine Dragon Ball tea and traditional Thai Iced Tea. While the service, ambiance and presentation was very traditional/colonial, there were Thai-twists throughout and never-ending fascinations for the children.
Abundant florals classically merged East and West with overflowing orchids alongside paper mache egg ornaments.
Chocolate eggs were everywhere coupled with a gorgeous nest and abundant confections for children too!
Beloved story themes were enjoyed by all:
Tea and balloon-making was capped off with a trip to the lawn for a competitive egg-hunt
Prizes and a stop at the Peninsula confectionery ensued…
