Grand Millennium Hosts Mother-Daughter High Tea

On the Sunday following Mother’s Day, the Grand Millennium Hotel played host to a charming Mother Daughter High Tea event, orchestrated by the Girls’ School. Mothers and daughters ascended the grand staircase, greeted with a warm welcome of champagne for the mums and juice for the girls. The mums, resplendent in gorgeous dresses and florals, and their daughters, clean in their formal uniforms, mingled in the hotel’s elegant bar area. Laughter and chatter filled the air as friends engaged and the family’s posed for portraits. 

When the doors to the tea room opened, gasps of delight echoed through the hall. The room was bathed in a violet glow from the hanging lights, creating a magical atmosphere. Round tables of ten were set with an array of delightful goodies on tiered cake stands. The excitement was palpable as the girls indulged in an assortment of macaroons, sandwiches, cake pops, biscuits, cakes, scones, and mini quiches. Waiting staff circulated with tea, adding to the elegant ambiance.

While the girls eagerly sampled the treats, little activities were provided to keep them entertained. The event’s success was largely due to the meticulous planning of Girls’ School Parents and Friends Chair Jess Wahlstrom, supported by the committee. Jess’s meticulous organisation and efforts ensured a seamless afternoon.

Special guests on the occasion included Merle Boniface, COO of Saint Kentigern Trust Services, Deputy Head Girl from the College Tiana Gray, and Preschool Principal Megan Storey. A highlight of the afternoon was a heartwarming video montage, featuring messages from the girls to their mums, bringing smiles and a few tears.

The event concluded with a raffle, where fortunate winners took home a wide range of prizes including a Basalaj Beauty makeup chest, Music Theory tuition, a dinner at Paris Butter, By Natalie Silk Sleep Sets and more. The Mother Daughter High Tea was the perfect treat for our mother’s and an opportunity for quality time away from the business of regular life.
