As a special school holiday treat I booked Miss 5 and I into high tea, not just the usual finger sandwiches, scones and tea kind of high tea….this was a high tea fit for a princess and to be more specific….a Little Princess High Tea at the Pagoda Resort & Spa in South Perth! Wow, what a morning we had!!!

As we were getting ready I was thinking I should have asked when I booked if dressing up was mandatory but I figured it was an event aimed at younger kids on school holidays so surely there would be a few Disney Princesses in the room….

As I pulled into the carpark I knew I had made the right decision, there were princess costumes everywhere, coming at me from all directions! Izzy was so excited seeing all these mini princesses and just couldn’t wait to get inside.

I was impressed with the theming, from the moment we stepped inside the Pagoda it was like we were in an enchanted castle. We found our names on the seating plan then walked through a floral arch into the historic Pagoda Ballroom and were greeted by two bakers gushing over how beautiful we were!

We found our table which was already full of food. Izzy instantly had her eye on the fruit tarts, full of pink cream and topped with strawberries. There were also marshmallows, cupcakes, chocolate dipped strawberries covered in sprinkles and ham and cheese finger sandwiches. The little prince and princesses could also choose from juice or a pink fizzy drink.

The big kids were catered for too with glasses of sparkling, pots of tea and coffee circling the room. I had a delicious quiche, chicken finger sandwich and fresh scones with jam and cream.

As far as entertainment goes I was expecting a couple of brief special appearances, fairy tale characters roaming around saying hi to the kids and having a few photos along the way, but it was much more impressive than that.

The theme was ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and we were treated to a full performance by a local performing arts group! The crowd were mesmerised, the set was up on a small stage and the kids were encouraged to sit on the floor, right up front and centre and most of the adults stayed at their tables.

Each act was probably around 30 minutes and in between you could have your photos taken with Belle, the Beast, Lumiere, Cogsworth and Mrs Potts! Izzy was over the moon!! Although the Beast did not feel so loved when she asked him to move out of her pic with Belle.

There were even goodie bags – Princess themed of course with lots of pink plastic things that my daughter loved! I was so pleased when she told me on the way home that it was the best day ever!

The room setup was round tables of 10, as it was just the two of us we were seated on a shared table with two other small groups.

The Pagoda Princess High Tea was an April school holiday special, but I believe they have another one planned for the July school holidays so keep an eye out if there’s a little prince or princess in your life who you think would enjoy it!

The Pagoda do offer high tea all year round, it’s a great spot to indulge in a decadent high tea. They offer a few options for high tea – traditional, sparkling, champagne and chocolate, full details on their website
