Baby Ho’s Baby Shower – Conservatory, Crown

Congratulations dear friend and fellow food blogger Lianne (Food Made With Love) who is expecting her first child in August :) She’s heading home back to Singapore for a couple of months to deliver the baby and spend time with family. But it wouldn’t be right for her to leave before we threw her a baby shower! We decided to leave the handwork of baking and cooking to others and chose to have afternoon tea at the Conservatory at Crown Casino ~

It’s been such a long time since I’ve visited the Conservatory, and since then it’s gone through a renovation and it’s looking more modern with more natural light coming through. The Afternoon tea is $50 per head and is offered 3pm-5pm on Saturdays and 3:30pm-5:30pm on Sunday.

Conservatory

It’s a buffet style which is great because it means free flow of food and you can pick and choose what you want more or less of ~ It had all the usual items you would expect at any high the ribbon sandwiches, bruschetta and mini pies.

Good range of savouries

However, what really impressed me was the Chinese roasts, especially the Peking duck pancakes, BBQ Pork Buns and dumplings which I’ve never had before. Another idea just came to me, I’m sure someone else has done it before but I think a Yum Cha high tea would be fun too!

Cheese

For those who don’t fancy Chinese, you can also have some Grissini breadsticks, dried fruit and a range of cheeses which I know Ashly (Im So Hungree) will appreciate!

Scones

 

It wouldn’t be a high tea without SCONES even better when it’s unlimited, you get a choice of plain or fruit ones and also clotted cream and strawberry or raspberry jam to serve with.

But the most important part of afternoon tea or anything meal is always DESSERT for me :) And for those who have a sweet tooth like me, you will not be disappointed here at Conservatory. They have a large bench full of sweet goodness. Let’s start with the chocolate fountains! Yup it’s plural because they have 4 flavours, dark, milk, white and an orange flavoured, dip strawberries, marshmallows and whatever you fancy ~

Gianduja mousse cake

If you haven’t noticed these amazing photos are taken by the one and only Iron Chef Shellie so of course I had to use more of these photos hehe I need lessons! I didn’t get to try all these cakes but they’re all so gorgeous.

Lemon Tart

I did get to try this Lemon Tart and it was wonderfully made with a good short crust pastry and a creamy filling which wasn’t too tart or sweet ~ Really liked the use of the mini merengue and strawberries which gave it some texture and flavour. Overall, we were quite happy with the afternoon tea here, my only comment would be 2 hours seemed a little rushed when you calculate the time spent queuing up in line at the food stations but definitely a great place to go with a bunch of girls. As a matter fact I didn’t see any men :P

 

Couldn’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon and to celebrate such a great news with Lianne :) Wishing her the very best with the delivery of her little bundle of joy and can’t wait to catch up with you again and meet Baby Ho in person!

    Best wishes to Lianne! I do like the look of this afternoon tea and to me, allowing everyone to help themselves to a buffet is so much better than doing the high tea option. So often with high teas you get things you’d rather not eat and not even of the things you would like more of. As for me…I would be certainly having a few of those duck pancakes! xx
