Mommy & Me Afternoon Tea

The Westgate is a grand hotel located in downtown San Diego near the Civic Center. I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon there recently when my daughter and I attended the Fancy Nancy Tea Party. I had always heard wonderful things about the hotel’s traditional tea service, which made selecting The Westgate as the location for our Fancy Nancy Tea Adventure, a no-brainer.

If you are looking for something extra-special to do with your little one or are searching for a different mom’s day out opportunity, you’re in luck. The Westgate offers its traditional tea service every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 2:30 until 5:00 p.m. Playing in the background is gentle harp music, and on the menu is a selection of fine teas, savory breads and sandwiches, sweet berries and scones and a selection of delightful desserts.

The Westgate has generously donated an afternoon tea for two with tax and gratuity included, which one lucky reader will win. If I could win this prize, I’d research the upcoming performances at the San Diego Civic and Balboa Theaters and coordinate my special tea around a theatrical production to make it a full day of fun. (Peter Pan, featuring Cathie Rigby, is coming in November and we always enjoy The Nutcracker in the winter!)

To be entered to win this tea-for-two prize, reply here with who you’d bring, what occasion you would celebrate or what fun downtown happening you’d squeeze in before or after tea. One winner will be selected this week!

    This would be such an amazing event for me and my daughter! Since we have a little boy in our family as well, it seems that I can’t have enough quality Mommy and me times as she would wanted… Both budget and timing wise, for stay at home mommy like myself… So this would be an amazing occasion to take her for some walk & shopping before and to go to theater after (would have to check details about shows in case I win;). And she absolutely love tea parties, so this would be so special for both of us! Whatever happens, thank you so much for the opportunity and may the luckiest win:)

  11. Eriko says:

    I would bring my girl friend whose husband is deployed for a year to have afternoon tea party!

  12. Germayne says:

    I would bring my 7 year old daughter, Rylee for a Mother/Daughter date. And maybe we’d squeeze in some shopping to complete the day!

  13. siobhan Manison says:

  14. Virginia says:

    I would bring my mom!

  15. Carrie H says:

    I would bring my girlfriend Jen. She’s a hard working mother to twin boys. Both, her and I could use an afternoon tea! Maybe, we would sneak in some shopping at Horton. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

  16. Diana Hatley says:

    If I won a Tea for Two prize, I would attend a tea with my daughter. Before the tea, we would do some shopping at Horton Plaza and maybe catch a movie together after our tea time!

    Nadia just turned 8 in March and is the best child, daughter and big sister anyone could ask for. I was a single mom to Nadia for the first 6 years of her life. Within the past two years, I met a wonderful man that became a wonderful daddy to Nadia, the first father she has ever known, and eventually this wonderful man became my husband. Last year, Nadia gained a dad and a new baby brother. Now we are a happy family of four. With an infant in the house requiring so much attention from mommy, I don’t get to spend as much quality time with Nadia, like we did in the “olden days,” as she refers to it. This would be the perfect bonding moment for my little girl that is growing up oh so fast!

    I love tea! I would bring my aunt for mothers day, since my mom passed away two years ago, my aunt has stepped up as an honary mom and grandma to me and my two boys.

  18. Karina C. says:

    I would bring my husband for a “tea-date”. It’ll bring back memories of our high tea in London and Bath.

  19. teresa morales says:

    i would bring my lovely/beautiful mother with me.. shes been a great person whos given me everything for years, working mother who deserves some time of relaxation. she would love to have some tea, followed by a day at the spa, and maybe some dinner at little italy would b nice.

  20. Jenny says:

    I love going to tea! I would bring my friend Jen, who works two jobs and her husband is deployed right now. I think she and her daughter would have a blast, as would I!
    What a wonderful prize!

  21. Brandi Smith says:

    Oh I think I might bring my mom! It would be lovely

  22. Jessica Cummings says:

    I would bring my daughters, my mother-in-law, and a woman who is like a mother to me now, to celebrate and create a tradition, one which I used to share with my mother when she was alive. It means so much to me to be close to family and share special occasions because they are few and far between once you grow up and I want my girls to cherish their childhood and look back on it fondly as I do my memories of time with my mother.

  23. Challey Fox says:

    I would bring my friend of five years; who is a hard working stay at home military mama like myself. Being spouses with active duty husbands and four kiddos ages 9,4,4,&2 , our own schooling, bible study events, chores, and t-ball between us we rarely get a break unless it’s nap time! I would love to get away on a stay-cation for the day with her, A nice walk at balboa park or maybe the botanical gardens, window shopping at the galleries in Little Italy, Tea at the Westgate, and maybe dinner at the Prada with some live music? a full day of friendship, fun, and adult time for two busy mommies!

  24. Kari says:

    I had the pleasure of enjoying my first high tea at the Westgate Hotel in celebration of my sweet 16 with my youth pastor at the time. It has instilled a lifelong love of tea parties in me! If I were to win, I would bring my friend, Kristyn, my former youth pastor and mentor. Thanks for this awesome giveaway! Whoever wins is going to love it.
