Snapshot | Anniversary Weekend at Langdon Hall

Langdon Hall, Cambridge, Toronto, Ontario, Review
Two weeks ago Boyfriend and I celebrated our one year anniversary at the gorgeous Langdon Hall in Cambridge, Ontario. The weekend was a surprise, but I figured it out about a month in advance - sorry babe. I absolutely fell in love with this place, it truly felt like we were "away" somewhere.
There can be no celebration without Champagne...

Is this not straight out of The Secret Garden
So even though Boyfriend had planned our weekend, I wanted to make sure I did something sweet for him while we were there. I emailed the hotel and while we were at dinner I had them fill our room with candles and rose petals (cliché with the petals - I know). It was so nice coming back after an amazing dinner to a candle-lit room. Guys need romance, too! 

(Hilarious side story: at the end of the night Boyfriend blew out the candles - after they'd been burning for hours - and hot wax went EVERYWHERE. We may have had to flip a chair cushion over... Oops...)
Carrot Rhubarb Amuse-Bouche
The first night (our actual anniversary), we had the tasting menu. Our favourites were definitely the marinated prawns and veal sweetbreads. I could have eaten about three courses of just the prawns...

We had a lengthy, boozy brunch (what other way is there?) outside the next day and watched them set up for a wedding (note the rows of white chairs in the background). Unfortunately I didn't get to see the wedding because after a boozy brunch we went to a wine tasting...and then proceeded to take a two hour nap before dinner. So necessary. It's a rough life, you know?

I was in love with our bathroom there - greys and whites and a huge bathtub - so pretty! Obsessed with this orchid and pot.

The Cheese Cart of Your Dreams
When we first started dating Boyfriend and I would eat SO. MUCH. CHEESE. There are few things better. Naturally, we ended our last night with a visit from the cheese cart where we selected four different cheeses to go with our honey, nuts, and fruit compote.
