Pendray Tea House

ENJOY A VICTORIAN-STYLE AFTERNOON TEA

Last week Andrew and I spent the night at The Pendray Inn and Tea House a Victorian style manor located in Victoria’s Inner Harbour. I have been fascinated with Victorian architecture, decor and lifestyle for a while now and love to visit Victorian style homes. The Pendray Inn is with rich with wood accents, original stained glass windows and Victorian style antique furniture and decor.

The Pendray Tea House encourages you to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and take a step back in time to enjoy the slower pace of the 19th century.  By the late 19th century, the concept of an afternoon break with tea and snacks had evolved beyond a simple light meal into a cultural phenomenon, with members of Victorian high society donning their finest to take part in the ritual of socialising over tea and refreshments.

In keeping with the custom of the era, the Pendray Inn features a traditional Victorian Afternoon Tea in the exquisite Tea House. We enjoyed a lovely and tranquil afternoon sipping rose tea from delicate vintage china while nibbling on sweets, bread and finger sandwiches. We loved the charm of the manor Victorian decor in the tea room.

Dress c/o Joanie Clothing 

I decided to wear my new Penny Polka Dot Frill Dress from Joanie Clothing because the delicate petal pink colour and polka dots seemed perfect for the occasion. I love the added ruffles on the sleeves and neckline. I find that all of the dresses that I have received from Joanie are very flattering and comfortable. Joanie has become my new favourite vintage-inspired brands and I adore all of the Joanie pieces in my wardrobe.
