High Tea at the Grand Hotel
At 3:30, every afternoon, the Grand Hotel puts on a High Tea--the kind that knocks your socks off! Granted, walking into the Grand Hotel is an event in and of itself, High Tea in the lobby with its outrageous carpets and furniture, a harpist in the corner and tuxedos on all the staff, well, it's pretty spectacular. We splurged and had the Champagne Tea which included a little pot of Earl Grey, a plate of six finger sandwiches, a plate of six decadent desserts (my favorite were the mini fruit tarts) and a flute of pink champagne--each! I was in heaven. My dears, pink champagne is the berries. Oh the giggles and sighs of delight were endless! If you ever make it to Mackinac Island, be sure to treat yourself to High Tea at the Grand. It won't disappoint, I promise!
