I love giving and getting experiences as Christmas gifts instead of physical items. As we grow into our adulthood, our Christmas wishlist becomes increasingly practical, filled with items we wish we had in our kitchen but we’d never buy frivolously for ourselves. While this is certainly true of my own wishlist this year, gift giving season is a great opportunity to give each other memories that will enrich our lives, and for my roommates and I – hopefully start a new tradition.
As actors, we have a passion for playing dress-up, and will take any opportunity to do so. We dressed in our best and headed to The T Room in Montrose, CA for our “Queen’s Afternoon Tea” reservation.
We chose a delicious Christmas tea called Noel, and they let us try a second pot of their best selling Peach tea! Afternoon Tea also included finger sandwiches, scones hot out of the oven, and small desserts! It was so much fun to sit and chat pretending to be ladies from Downton Abbey and dream about a vacation to the British Isles in 2017.
