For my birthday my friends treated me on a high tea party in a real palazzo in the lovely village of Naxxar in Malta. The palazzo is beautiful, the surrounding gardens with orangerie are soothing the eyes and the lovely fragrance of the flowers in the air is just what you need on a day off. A hidden gem in the center of the island.
In the entrance hall i immediately spotted masterpieces from the Maltese painter Edward Caruana Dingli, famous for his portraits and folkloristic scenes.
In the tearoom we started of with a glass of prosecco, the table was filled with fine china, silverware, perfect selected teas, a three tier stand with homemade scones, finger sandwiches, cakes and pastries, clotted cream and strawberry preserve. I could not think of a better gift, thanks again my dear friends!
