Tea at the Bellagio, Las Vegas

Before I was trapped in a 5-star hotel, I had the wonderful chance to have tea with two friends at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.

Two work colleagues and I met at the Petrossian lounge in the Bellagio.

















You can see that we were very near the casino (in the background), so it was a little noisier and smokier than I would have preferred. But aside from that, all was swell.

The china was very pretty. I loved the stiped motif.

















The food was very yummy! How can one pick a favorite among so many treats? But if I had to pick, I would say the open-faced feta/date sandwich (in front, bottom row). Oh, my - it was heavenly! Everything was beautifully presented.
























It was an afternoon I will cherish! We enjoyed ourselves so much, we missed it when Bill Clinton walked behind us!

I love to have tea and am making an effort to do so as often as possible - even in my own humble living room! Thanks to my friends for going with me! You can read another review of our excursion here.

This looks like a great afternoon tea! Sorry to read about your recent illness - that's no fun when far away from home. Nancy

Tea at the Bellagio! My stars! And I just love that tea set. How elegant! Funny that you were so enamored with the tea you missed the former president! Thanks for sharing!

Tea nerd. Feta and dates does sound pretty pretty good.
