Aladdin themed afternoon tea and west end show!

Well hello to you my reader chums! Last week, my boyfriend Dan and I ventured to London for a day out. As a Christmas present I got Dan tickets to go see Aladdin on the West End as its his favourite Disney film. We both couldn't wait for the show and to spend some time in the city.

Here's what we got up to...

Cutter and Squidge Aladdin afternoon themed tea

A while ago I saw on Facebook an Aladdin themed afternoon tea at Cutter & Squidge (a bakery) in Soho. As we were going to see Aladdin in the evening, I decided to surprise Dan by booking a table at this themed afternoon tea - he had no idea and it was ever so magical. When you walk into the bakery, the staff take you downstairs to this room that is designed to look like the 'Genie's cave'. The dimmed purple lighting, glittery decorations and gold lamps everywhere screamed Aladdin to me and we couldn't wait to see what was in store with the tea. Disney music also rang through our ears from film to film so we couldn't help but sing along.

Before the main afternoon tea came out, we got a little starter, a glass of prosecco and this pot filled with candy floss, a yummy yogurt concoction and meringue on the top. We then were able to choose our tea, I went for the 'very berry' and Dan chose 'passion fruit'. Our teas were brought out in the quirkiest jugs that looked just like the genie's lamp (we wanted to bring them home)! The food consisted of an assortment of different sandwiches, savoury pastries, macaroons, 'flying carpet' shortbread, cakes and even more macaroons to finish! Every single nibble was bursting with different flavours from coronation chicken sandwiches, feta pastries, chocolate macaroons to strawberry cake and raspberry tarts. There was so many delicious treats to try!

This was the walkway that led into the 'Genie's cave'. Every single decoration has so much detail and a lot of thought put into it - you felt a part of the Disney magic.

We had the most incredible time at the afternoon tea! If you're a massive Disney fan (especially Aladdin), book yourself a table at Cutter & Squidge as I promise you, it'll be a magical experience. This tea is on for limited time only and I think it stops at the end of March so book before it's too late!

After lunch, we had a mooch around Covent Garden, stopped off for dinner at Pizza Express and then it was show time. I'd been listening to the soundtrack prior to the show so couldn't wait to see it brought to life.

Aladdin exceeded all my expectations! With the catchy songs, bright costumes, dancing, magical staging and electrical atmosphere, there was so much to take in. It's one of those musicals that make you smile the entire way through! I also love how much humour was thrown into the show and made you literally laugh out loud. The Genie had to be my favourite every character because he had it all - the singing voice, dancing ability and greatest humour which had the audience in tears. The show was phenomenal and seeing the magic carpet fly into the sky to a 'whole new world' topped it all off.
