Afternoon Tea in the Castle Library

What is more lovely than spending the afternoon sipping tea with friends? Maybe taking the time for afternoon tea in the castle library! That is exactly what I did yesterday with 4 lovely ladies. As a surprise birthday gift for my friend Jill and myself, our other friends surprised us with afternoon tea at Schloss Kronberg ( About 20 minutes past Frankfurt Airport sits this lovely castle.

Below is the entrance into the castle

The beautiful lobby
We had afternoon tea in the library

Angie and Jill selecting their finger sandwiches-they were all so wonderful!

First we started with champagne, drinks, and sandwiches, then we had our decedent scones and sweets, our tea, and then either port or sherry. We all had the PORT and it was so good.

The piano player was amazing, the ambiance was so tranquil, I felt so special
At the end of the tea, we were able to take a private tour of the castle, below is one of the display cabinets in the breakfast room-the castle is amazing, you can stay at the hotel for as little as 4oo euro a night or take the exec suite for 1500 euro a night!

The grounds were beautiful, there is an 18 hole golf course and rose gardens-all very beautiful
Thank goodness for timers on cameras! We captured some really lovely moments.
The gals having a good time!

Even the bathroom was beautiful
It was so awesome to have someone wait on you-even just for an afternoon!
It was quite an afternoon-I feel very blessed to have friends like these-what a rare treasure! Thanks ladies!

Looks like you had a fantastic time. I bet the tea and food was delicious! I could eat little tea sandwiches,desserts and scones until I pop, lol. You are blessed to have such wonderful friends. :) Madeline
