AD/ Unforgettable Festive Delights at Enchanted Tea Room 🍵🎄
On the 3rd of December, 2022, we had an unforgettable festive experience at the Enchanted Tea Room located in the picturesque Royal Leamington Spa of Warwickshire. Our highlights included a delightful Frozen-themed Afternoon Tea, engaging singalongs with Elsa, Anna, and the musical Elves, and a magical encounter with Santa. The Enchanted Tea Room is truly a place not to be missed!
Journeying to a Breathtaking Town 🏞️
We set out from Derby well ahead of our 1pm reservation, reaching the picturesque Royal Leamington Spa about an hour later. This town is truly breathtaking! Our Midsmas community members' recommendations led us straight to Bath Place Car Park. Though it was packed when we arrived, departing visitors meant we found a spot quickly. The Enchanted Tea Room, boasting a beautifully adorned window, was just a short two-minute walk away.
We got there at 12:15pm, which allowed us some time to explore the festive market at All Saints' Church. Its stained-glass windows are a marvel. By 12:45pm, we were back at the Enchanted Tea Room where two charming Elves welcomed us and guided us to our table.
Enchanting Ambiance and Warm Welcome ✨🎩
As you step into the Enchanted Tea Room, the captivating décor immediately grabs your attention. It exudes a cosy, Disney-inspired, woodland fairytale ambiance, brimming with magical details. The meticulousness is remarkable, making it a dreamland for not just children but for the inner child in many adults as well.
Soon after settling in, we had a delightful chat with an Elf who went above and beyond to ensure we felt right at home. Before we could even help the kids with their coats, they were engrossed in the Christmas-themed activity sheets and crayons laid out for them!
Alex and I were quickly offered a hot beverage and presented with a tempting festive hot chocolate menu. A jug of diluted blackcurrant juice was already set for the kids. Even the teacups seamlessly blended with the room's enchanting theme.
A Royal Encounter with Elsa and Anna ❄️👑
Shortly after we found our seats, a delightful surprise awaited us - none other than Elsa and Anna! They graciously joined our table, engaging in a wonderful conversation and showing genuine interest in the kids. Their commitment to staying true to character was truly impressive, and the expressions of sheer joy on our children's faces spoke volumes. Meeting their Disney idols was an absolute highlight of the day. The girls were bestowed with charming tiaras, instantly transforming them into princesses, while Max embraced the Frozen spirit with his playful Olaf-themed glasses.
Delectable Treats and Frozen Magic 🍰🍫
In a matter of moments, our drinks were served, followed by the star of the show - our Afternoon Tea. Arriving on an exquisite three-tiered wooden stand, the tiers were adorned with an array of delectable treats. The Frozen-inspired desserts added a whimsical touch that perfectly complemented the occasion. Every bite was a testament to the premium quality of the offerings. While we relished every bite, the generous portions meant we had plenty left to take home, ensuring our indulgence could continue.
Heartwarming Moments with Santa 🎅🎁
As we savoured our meal, the delightful Elves ushered us, one table at a time, to meet the main man in his Grotto. Santa was an absolute gem! He exhibited remarkable understanding towards Mia's hidden disabilities, though it turns out our concerns were needless, as Mia relished the experience to the fullest. Santa's interaction with the kids was outstanding; he engaged them in genuine conversation and took his time, ensuring the meet-and-greet felt unhurried. To top it off, the kids were gifted an enchanting Christmas storybook and a generous bag of sweets - a gesture that truly warmed our hearts.
Magical Melodies and Joyful Dance 🎶💃
With our Afternoon Tea delightfully devoured, it was time for Elsa and Anna to steal the spotlight. They graced the stage with their presence, delivering an enchanting performance of all the Frozen classics. The room came alive with the melodies as both children and adults joined in the harmonious chorus. I confess, I may have resorted to a bit of lip-syncing; mastering all the song lyrics despite repeated viewings of the Frozen films remains a work in progress for me. A Dad's dilemma, you could say.
Elsa and Anna, on the other hand, were nothing short of exceptional. Their voices resonated with passion and authenticity, leaving no room for miming. Their heartfelt renditions showcased their true vocal prowess, captivating every soul in the room. Their impeccable showmanship was on full display as they not only sang but also engaged with the audience, maintaining a captivating connection that extended even to the youngest guests. Our applause and admiration for them know no bounds!
Following that, a collective invitation went out to the children for an exuberant dance and singalong session. In this magical moment, Mia truly came alive, surrounded by princesses, Elves, and her cherished tunes. Witnessing her sheer joy and comfort was a heartwarming sight, a rare occurrence that shed light on the deep sense of ease she found in this heartwarming ambiance. Max was in his element too, unleashing his signature freestyle dance moves with an infectious enthusiasm. It seems he's inherited my carefree dance floor attitude! Meanwhile, Holly revelled in the experience, her attention occasionally diverted to the food—particularly the chocolate buttons, a delightful choice. Her fascination with the music was evident in her spirited applause as the performance concluded, her smile radiating from ear to ear.
Capturing Memories in Polaroid 📸✨
Following that, the children were offered the chance to capture a special moment on a Polaroid camera—a photo featuring Elsa, Anna, and Santa, all together. The resulting snapshot became a cherished keepsake, beautifully concluding our enchanting journey.
As our adventure drew to a close, Elsa, Anna, and the Elves made their way to each table, expressing gratitude for our visit and bidding us farewell. Elsa went the extra mile, kindly proposing one more photo opportunity with each of the children—a gesture we gladly embraced.
