QT Wellington's Hippopotamus Cocktail Bar is known for serving up delectable delights and holding on-theme events — and this holiday season the venue is throwing a festive high tea with all the trimmings.

Each weekend until Christmas is basically upon us, Hippopotamus will be presenting a selection of sweets and savouries worth pining over, with cheery Christmas treats stacked three tiers high. There will be pavlovas topped with lemon curd and kiwifruit, smoked salmon éclairs and classic macarons, flavoured with raspberry and rose. And of course, no Christmas high tea would be complete without a glass of champagne so you can cheers to the end of the year.

The high tea will run at 2pm and 3.30pm on Saturdays and Sundays from November 5 until December 18 and cost $53pp — head to the website to nab a spot.
