SEEN hears that following on from the successful launch of It’s All In The Game afternoon tea, St James’s Hotel & Club have partnered with renowned Luxury Pearl brand, PLAX Jewellery to offer a board-game inspired Mother’s Day afternoon tea package, including a gift of stunning pearl earrings and deliciously indulgent treats.

Guests can come and enjoy the Mother’s Day afternoon tea at St James’s Hotel & Club or treat your mum with a gourmet 3-course lunch at Seven Park Place, London’s most intimate Michelin-starred restaurant. Both the afternoon tea and the lunch offering are available as stand-alone experiences or as packages that come with a set of elegant PLAX pearl earrings.


The lunch menu on offer at Seven Park Place features starters of salmon marinated in treacle and brandy, a warm lobster mousse, or potato gnocchi with roasted chicken – while the mains consist of poached fillet of brill with smoked salmon, blade of beef, slow cooked in Madeira with mashed potato and root vegetables, and Roast loin of Cumbrian outdoor pork with caramelised apple purée.

Sweeten the deal for your mum with a special dessert from Executive Chef William Drabble and let her choose from passion fruit cheesecake with mango and lime sorbet, dark chocolate financier with orange, or apple tart fine with vanilla ice cream.


Plax will adorn your mother with an elegant pair of natural rose freshwater pearl earrings, beautifully crafted in a classic yet chic hook style with sturdy sterling silver. This divine pair features oval shaped pearls with approximate size of 10-11mm in natural rose/rose-apricot colour. A delightful gift that will no doubt add to a Mother’s delight on Mother’s Day.
