Happy Birthday ME!!! And WIN Champagne Afternoon Tea at Claridge’s

Today’s my birthday!!! Happy Birthday me!!! 
I love celebrating my birthday and like many other girls the celebrations can last all week (or month), so expect a few posts in the next couple of days as I celebrate with Mr Silver, my friends and family. 
Here’s few photos of birthdays past to get you in the mood to party…
 Now, it’s pretty common practice for bloggers to do a birthday giveaway…and I’m no exception. Having worked in marketing I’ve learnt that when planning a competition you should know your market. And I’ve come to realise that my readers are rather fond of a good afternoon tea! 
I’m so grateful that my little blog has developed such a loyal readership that I didn’t just want to thank you with the chance to win afternoon tea… I wanted to offer the chance to win the BEST afternoon tea in London. 
Further research was clearly required; so I scoured the reviews of my favourite bloggers and there was a clear winner….Claridge’s!

Gluten-free afternoon tea queen, Kelly from Around the World in 80 Pairs of Shoes, proclaimed Claridge’s ‘London’s best afternoon tea by a long shot and sets the standard for afternoon tea.’
A lady in the know, Laura from Heroine in Heels, described the experience as ‘heaven’ and ‘everything I dreamed of.’
My blogger friend, Caroline from Cocktails and Caroline, regards the tea as ‘Classic and opulent’ and she was ‘wowed by the grandness of it all.’ 
One of London’s most famous food bloggers Chris Pople from Cheese and Biscuits had incredibly high praise ‘Serenaded by piano and cello and in the most beautiful dining room in London, at Claridge’s you also get food and drink of purest gold’
And if those comments haven’t got you itching to win the prize, here are a few photos to make your mouth water.
