Cupcake Teas @ the Ritz Carlton Central-Park

Since we are going into the 1st weekend of February, I thought I would let everyone know about the Valentine’s Day Cupcake Tea at the Ritz Carlton Central-Park in the Star Lounge. I was lucky enough to spend my birthday in December at the Holiday Cupcake Tea and we even had Jennifer Aniston sitting right behind us!! We had the opportunity to wish her and her lady friend, Happy Holidays, and it was quite a memorable birthday for me in the city. It is definitely worth the $28 cost, no doubt. I would suggest cutting each cupcake in half and tasting the different flavors as my friend and I ate the whole cupcake and ended up leaving 2 untouched. I know I will do that for the next cupcake tea we attend. Here are some of the shots from the Christmas Tea:

how much more elegant can you get than this??? kinda like home, right?
elegant table decorations.....what else would you expect for the Ritz ??
look at the brown and white sugar cubes!! those nutz were sooo good, I couldn't stop eating them!!

here are all 5 together....the choices for the Valentine Tea will be a bit different and decorations will be for that specific cute is this ?????
I am obsessed with Red Velvet ......this little guy was sooo tasty....and photogenic as well !!!
