Birthday Buns and Bumps

I reached the big 3-0 at the end of July and being heavily pregnant meant no cocktails or dancing all night sadly. However, I did get to eat an awful lot of cake! My husband took me to The Berkeley to indulge in their amazing afternoon tea, Pret A Portea. If you've never heard of it, the concept is all the cakes and biscuits are inspired by current fashion trends and designers, and the selection changes every season.

I was tempted to sneak the crockery into my handbag!

As well as doing me a lovely birthday plate, when our waiter realised I was pregnant, the kitchen made me a special lot of cakes as there were some on the menu that I couldn't eat - fantastic service.

And you get a very stylish doggy bag to take any leftovers home

And here's the bump, full of cake, and adorned with as many badges as I could fit on there!

Can I go again next year please?!

*disclaimer - we paid for this service and are not receiving anything for mentioning it here - these are my personal views*


  1. I am hugely jealous!! Can i come next time?! :D

  2. Wow! I've been meaning to take my sis in law for the afternoon tea there for years, this has given me the necessary push to book! Thanks.

  3. That looks amazing! Happy birthday! I was 30 earlier this year too

  4. Wow - I love afternoon tea, and that is certainly afternoon tea with a difference.
    Happy belated birthday!

  5. How weird I'm going there for my 30th next month too! I LOVE afternoon tea! Just started following xxx
