Good Morning Darlings!

Do you love Downton Abbey? Isn’t it positively delicious?

At The Ritz-Carlton Buckhead, you can do just that. And if you have never experienced Afternoon Tea at our city’s favorite hotel, you are in for a luxe treat.

Inspired by Downton Abbey on Masterpiece Theatre, guests may enjoy the pleasantries of British-styled tea and snap a photo of themselves with a fanciful cutout of Lord Grantham and Lady Grantham, Dowager Countess, at the hotel’s iconic fireplace in The Lobby Lounge from Wednesday, January 9 through Sunday, January 13, 2013.

January 2013 marks 29 years of serving Afternoon Tea at The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead. Presented in the British tradition, Afternoon Tea includes the guest’s choice of fine loose tea steeped in a bone china teapot, and poured through a silver strainer into the teacup. A new menu of delectable savories, warm scones and sweets accompanies the tea service.
