AGO afternoon tea

AGO Afternoon Tea

Kusama Narcissus Garden

I bought an Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) membership in the hopes of getting into the Kusama infinity mirrors exhibit, which didn’t grant my wish. However, while going through the benefits I discovered they do afternoon tea. A proper tea at an art gallery; well that just sounds like the best and classiest thing ever!

For my outfit I wore these orange/red cropped lace pants. They were such a good sale item. They are a statement piece, the colour is bold – but wait you haven’t heard the best part – they have an elastic waist! Which means you can actually eat your afternoon tea. A plain white shirt with scalloped sleeves and my Egyptian inspired necklace completed the look. I also wore a Kate Spade bracelet which I got from a BUNZ trade and a blue stretchy bracelet I made. Since the pants are a show piece you don’t need much else.

The traffic to get there was insane for some reason, it took double it should have to get there. I was so stressed in the car! But we were still able to enjoy the tea being 30 minutes late. I thought it was supposed to be Kusama-inspired but it didn’t seem to be. When I go for tea I always judge how pretty the teacups are and these passed my test. They served mini avocado toast and a chicken katsu bite which were yummy and different than a typical tea menu. There was also an infused (with matcha I think) hard boiled egg as well. And of course scones and clotted cream!

After we walked around really quickly and saw a couple paintings and the one free Kusama exhibit . I think that is the most I’ll get to see of the mirror exhibit sadly.
