You may have noticed my absence from Little Miss Mon Bon again over this past week. Now that I have been able to say my final (very teary and short of breath) goodbyes to my late Nonno Alberto at his funeral on Friday, I am able to soldier on with my life.
In true fashion blogger style, my mini blog hiatus was kick started with the very big and beautiful blogger high tea that I organised at Rochelle Adonis. Rochelle Adonis is a quaint high tea venue on Brisbane St, Northbridge. The building itself is very unassuming, and you would be forgiven for walking past and missing the beauty that is inside. Nestled amongst cafes and galleries on Brisbane St, I walk past Rochelle Adonis on a regular basis, but it wasn't until I noticed 4 ladies sitting in the window enjoying their confections that I got really excited at what must lay inside. After some googling, drooling and a whole heap of excitement, I decided then and there that I needed to organise a day with my fellow blogging community at Rochelle Adonis. It may have taken a couple of months for me to get around to organising it, but my golly it was worth it!
After a mini freak out that people wouldn't be able to come, and a close call after our original booking preference was taken within 24 hours of deciding upon it, 14 of us descended upon Rochelle Adonis for a glorious morning of high tea. Rochelle Adonis prides themselves on their home-made produce and their unique, homely mix of fresh roses, pretty crystals and mismatched cutlery, teacups and china. Everything from the wall hangings and table settings to the food was so very photogenic - perfect for our snap happy blogging group! We started our experience off with a plate of four savoury pieces, some cucumber sandwiches and a pot of tea. There were interesting ingredients (namely rabbit), interesting textures (think salmon mousse/parfait) and gorgeous flavours (I loved the raddichio ravioli!). The mini watermelon and berry popsicle palette cleanser, served in between the savoury and the sweet course, was an experience in itself. We were then treated to four individual sweets. Strawberry, vanilla, chocolate, banoffee... so many flavours and so so so much food! The high tea was a very decadent indulgence, and one that must be experience at least once in every Perth girl's life!
I would like to extend a huge thanks to Darlene and Bianca at Style Palace for our sweet little goody bags, and to the following loud, funny and fabulous blogging ladies for attending and making the morning what it was:
Cindy (Rose Gold Whimsy)
Claire (Harbour Master)
Erin (Chimerical Perfection)

Kim (Wasted Wonderland)

Sharon (Sass & Spice)
Steph (Le Fanciulle)
