One lucky prize winner celebrated Luxury Family Hotels turning 30 with a special Afternoon Tea for 30 at New Park Manor!
This year Luxury Family Hotels celebrates its 30th year. To celebrate a competition was launched offering the chance to win an afternoon tea party for 30 people at one of the five Luxury Family Hotels.
To enter the competition, entrants had to nominate their favourite song or movie from the 80’s. There were some great choices, The Goonies, Dirty Dancing, Bon Jovi 'Living on a Prayer' and so many more. The random winner, like many had picked Top Gun as their favourite movie.
The winner, Alexandra, chose to host her Champagne Afternoon Tea for 30 prize here at New Park Manor. It was then just a case of setting a date and create the guest list.
We spoke to Alexandra just after her event to find out all about it
Congratulations on winning our 30th Birthday Afternoon Tea Giveaway! Who did you decide to take with you and why?
After the initial excitement of winning it dawned on me that I had to find 30 people to invite and I was initially a bit overwhelmed but when I understood how family friendly the hotel was, it was easy to make up the numbers.
I brought along my parents, my sister and her family and then some of our friends too. We all have children under five who were really excited to be joining us for the party. I knew my family would love it as we often celebrate special occasions with afternoon tea and, as a group spanning lots of ages, we all got on really well in the relaxing surroundings at New Park Manor.
What made you choose New Park Manor for your celebration?
I chose New Park Manor as it is in the New Forest, which I love! Some of us decided to make a weekend out of it, which made it even more special. As we live relatively near it was an easy journey to make with the children too.
What made the day special for you and your guests?
We were given a private room with outside space, as there were nine children in our group so they could play outside whilst we relaxed and lingered over the tea and enjoyed the afternoon. The team looking after us were amazing and made sure we had everything we needed. Oh and the scones!!!! They were perfection.
Did you make a weekend of it? If so, what else did you get up to?
We did and four of the families also stayed nearby to make the most of the New Forest. It was a weekend full of ponies, running, rugby, and relaxation - and of course an amazing afternoon tea.
How would you sum up the day in three words?
Wonderful, special and relaxing.
Don't forget until 31st October you can enjoy Afternoon Tea for Two with us for £29.95. Call the team on 01590 623467 to make your booking.
