We provide a traditional tea party with a twist – we bring the party to you! And we do all the work! We make the hostessing role as simple as determining your guest list. We work with you to create the event that you want – with delicious food, elegant table settings including china and vintage tableware, centrepieces and a selection of linens to create a beautiful tablescape. And we can accommodate most food allergies – please discuss with us.
Freshly baked delicacies are served on 3 tiered serving dishes. We bake our own scones which are served with home made jam and Devonshire cream, and assorted sweets and create delicate tea sandwiches and other savories. Once your guests arrive they will be seated while a selection of background music is playing. Then the tea tastings will begin! Our teas are blended in small batches from a local tea supplier (we love to support other small businesses!) Pre-selected teas will be brought to the table with information about each so guests can make a choice. After everyone has their “cuppa”, the food is brought out and a while later a second selection of teas will be offered. Then we depart so you and your guests can continue the party!
When the party is complete, we pack up and take everything, even the dirty dishes, with us!
We also offer a buffet set up, if that works better for your event: arranged to complement the occasion and recommended for Wedding day bridal party brunches, showers among other occasions.
