The weather forecast tells you to bundle up, as the winds and rain are due… you grab the brolly and a big scarf only to be met with sunshine.
You ditch this, and then the rain comes back – where did you leave the brolly!?
We can’t deal with the ever-changing weather in Scotland. What we can deal with is just how good afternoon tea is, whether you can see sun or showers outside.
Take shelter whatever the weather this Christmas period with today’s Big Deal on a festive afternoon tea for two in The Salon at Blythswood Square Hotel, with option to add a glass of Moët and Chandon Impérial Brut each.
If you toddle up the grand staircase at the five star Kimpton Blythswood Square Hotel, you will find the Salon, an elegant lounge bar.
It is a very chic space. In fact, the drinks Bible Class magazine rated it as one of ‘the best bars in the world’.
Decked out with chandeliers, Harris Tweed chairs, Ionic columns and large windows looking out over Blythswood Square itself, it is a sophisticated spot and perfect for enjoying this delicious Big Deal.
Afternoon tea with a twist
Available noon to 5pm, the Big Deal is for two people to have a festive afternoon tea with optional glass of Moët and Chandon Impérial Brut for each guest.
Options one and two are available Monday to Friday, and options three and four are for Saturday and Sunday.
The Blythswood patisserie chefs are always innovating and baking up new treats so the afternoon tea menu changes regularly, but with this deal, your afternoon tea is themed around the festive period.
Expected savouries are the pork & chestnut sausage rolls, roast turkey with sage stuffing & cranberry on malted bread, and free-range egg mayonnaise & watercress on white bread.
Of course, there are always traditional and fruit scones with Cornish clotted cream and strawberry preserve.
Sweet treats might include a red velvet candy cane cupcake, the Christmas pudding macaroon, Rudolph choux bun and Christmas tree meringue.
The Salon serves a wide range of loose leaf teas and speciality coffees.
