New Collection - Summer of Love  |  Free UK Returns

Here's a quick update following a lovely piece in Metro some of you may have spotted about our latest collaboration, with the Goring Hotel......

The world's best Hotel (where else would you spend your last night as a single girl before marrying a Prince?! The Goring of course!) asked Alex to come up with a quirky idea for their afternoon teas, of which they change the theme throughout the year.

The Goring.

Well, as usual Alex managed to come up with some wonderful childhood tales.....memories of 'Shrimp Teas' he enjoyed as a youngster came to mind, with fresh shrimp bought straight from East Anglian fishermen, and enjoyed in the sunshine with a huge pot of tea and an endless supply of  bread and butter. Mmm, sounds delicious!

And so here we introduce the Goring Shrimp.  A lovely little fellow made in silver with a rose gold plate, and two black pearls for eyes.

The Goring Shrimp

He hangs on a 24 inch chain and would make the perfect addition to anybody's jewellery collection - distinctive and quirky, yet somehow still incredibly pretty!

Alex actually worked alongside The Goring's chefs to create the perfect 'Alex Monroe Afternoon Tea', delicate finger sandwiches, and mini loaves of wholemeal bread filled with potted shrimp.....plus the essential scones, jam and clotted cream, and some stunning floral, honey and mint cakes!

The 'Alex Monroe Afternoon Tea' will be available at the Goring Hotel from May the 1st, coming complete with the exclusive Shrimp Necklace for £195.  Call 020 7396 9000 to book.

The tea in all of it's glory!

The Goring Shrimp can also be purchased separately for £165 and traditional afternoon tea at The Goring is £35 per person.

From June, The Goring Shrimp will also be available directly from us! Drop us a line if you would like to go on our waiting list to purchase one: shop@alexmonroe.com

Afternoon Tea and a beautiful piece of jewellery......wouldn't that make just about the perfect treat?!

It's all terribly civilized!
