An Elegant Halloween

An Elegant Halloween

The candy cart at the Palm Court

If you are traveling with kids in tow, and they are bemoaning the fact that they are not home to go trick or treating (or, if you are an adult that happens to love the holiday), we have a solution. On Friday, Oct. 30 and Sat., Oct. 31, from noon-5 p.m., the Plaza Hotel will be hosting a special Halloween Eloise Tea. Besides scrumptious sandwiches that include organic peanut butter and jelly and housemade turkey with cranberry aioli, the Palm Court will be outdoing their usual spectacular sweets at High Tea, with holiday specials that include orange cotton candy, black currant macaroons and pumpkin and gingerbread meringue tart.

But, of course Halloween is about getting the goods. Each guest will receive a bag which they can then use to attack the Halloween Candy Cart: a festooned cart filled with the hits of the holiday: peanut butter cup miniatures, chocolate Hershey Kisses, candy corn, housemade caramels, Jolly Ranchers and much more.

And, let’s face it: if you are going to have a sugar coma, you can’t ask for a classier environment to have one in than the Palm Court at the Plaza.

The cost for the High Tea is $65.
