Our trick or treating took a turn for the super fabulous this year when we were invited to attend a Halloween themed tea at the Plaza Hotel at the Palm Court. We headed to the Plaza hotel during a huge rain storm (our power went out that night). But, we braved the rain for this opportunity.
The Plaza Hotel is a spectacular building located right at the south-east corner of Central Park. The Plaza is synonymous with luxury in New York City so I knew a Trick or Treat Tea there would be an absolute treat — not a trick!
The Palm Court is an amazing place to have an iconic and fancy afternoon tea experience. The room is grand and elegant with ceilings that seem to go higher and higher. The old-world style and glamorous ambiance do not disappoint. And, what is really special about the Plaza is they always serve a kid-themed tea; so it is a great place to take a little one for a fun and special afternoon.
This Trick or Treat Tea was particularly special and we were so happy we made the trip despite the rain. My son was in heaven! The Trick or Treat Candy Cart was loaded with goodies and the little ones were able to grab whatever they wanted! The kids Halloween tea came with lots of Halloween goodies, including cotton candy bigger than my sons head. There were also substantial and wholesome tea sandwiches which made mommy happy.
Speaking of making this mommy happy, the Plaza also has a lovely gluten-free tea option. I was really impressed with the options: lots of savory sandwiches, tasty scones and a variety of sweet treats, their gluten free game is strong!
After a delightful tea, we headed down to the Eloise store to play with the other kids who were also visiting and do some shopping. A truly lovely afternoon in the city, we enjoyed ourselves immensely – despite the rain.
Thank you to The Plaza for providing a sample experience.
