July DreamWorks Trolls Tea Time for Families

Just a few days ago we had the chance to preview the new DreamWorks Trolls Afternoon Tea Time to be offered by the luxurious 5-star The Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena.
This special limited engagement event, inspired by the colorful DreamWorks Trolls characters kids love, runs every Sunday in July, beginning July 7.




Sneak Peek at the Experience


Upon arrival, you'll be greeted warmly by attentive staff who will direct you to the Lobby Lounge of this iconic landmark hotel overlooking the Horseshoe Garden Lawn where the unique DreamWorks Trolls Afternoon Tea takes place.

On your way into the hotel, though, definitely take a moment to pose for a family portrait in front of the stunning floral @LanghamPasadena backdrop just outside the main entrance. Tip: Don't be shy to ask a staff member, they'll be glad to snap some pics of your entire family, so even the usual photographer in the family can actually be in the pictures for a change.

Certainly, Instagram-worthy moments will be plentiful throughout the event. So don't forget your fully-charged smartphones and cameras with adequate storage to capture memories that will last a lifetime.

From the start, expect to be enchanted by the colorful DreamWorks Trolls themed food, decor, and fun surrounding your family. Once seated at your table adorned with lovely fresh pink rose centerpieces, you'll be treated to a traditional elegant high tea service with a kid-friendly twist as well as some whimsical touches for the grownups.





The DreamWorks Trolls Tea Party


Each guest (young and old) is treated to their very own elegant place setting, complete with fine Wedgewood tea service and an elegantly folded cloth napkin with menu tucked inside.



This is a tea party, afterall, so your server will present your family with a selection of fruit-infused and caffeine-free teas from which to choose. Little ones also have their choice of milk or pink lemonade served in fancy water glass, while accompanying adults can opt to enjoy a glass of sparkling wine, all of which are included.

Each child will delight in finding some goodies at their place to take home. These tea party favors include crayons, a DreamWorks Trolls - The Beat Goes on! (now streaming on Netflix) placemat with coloring sheet and craft ideas , along with one of six collectible, cute and fuzzy DreamWorks Trolls Hair Huggers (while supplies last) which look adorably stylish worn as either a hair wrap or wrist bracelet.




Themed Kids and Adults Plates


Shortly after everyone is happily sipping their favorite drinks, the food arrives. Each party guests is served their own fantasy sweet and savory platter beautifully presented with an assortment of lovely tea sandwiches and sweet DreamWorks Trolls-inspired desserts. The adult trolls selection varies a bit from the plate for the junior trolls, but both are just as delicious and fun.




The kid's plate presentation is a feast for little eyes and tummies with its four different dainty tea sandwiches ranging from Smoked Turkey Breast and Swiss Cheese on Wheat Bread to Peanut Butter and Jelly and more. The child's plate also features a variety of seven mini desserts like the Trolls Hair-Raising Confetti Cupcakes; Rainbow Marshmallow on Wafers; pink Queen Poppy and the blue Branch Sugar Dough Cookies; and others.

While the children are enjoying their meals, moms, dads and other adults will indulge in themed plates of your own with five elegant tea sandwiches for grownup tastes such as Asian Pear with Bleu Cheese Mousse and Candy; Smoked Salmon Cone and Lemon Poppyseed Cream Cheese; and three delicious others.

As if that weren't enough, adult plates are adorned with six miniature desserts, four just like the kids, plus a French Macaron and indulgent White Chocolate Passion Fruit Gateaux.




DreamWorks Trolls Photo Shoot


For the press preview, we got to meet and get our photos taken with the adorable and bubbly Queen Poppy.

During every special tea this month, each boy and girl guest will be invited for an impromptu photo shoot to strike their best poses with a DreamWorks Trolls Character against a giant multi-hued balloon rainbow step-and-repeat backdrop. It might be Queen Poppy or another one of the beloved characters because being surprised is part of the fun.

I personally know of some different DreamWorks Trolls characters who really love these The Langham Huntington Hotel tea parties, so you never know which character is going to show up!
