An Afternoon Tea Party is suitable for many celebrations. When you'd like to host a party that isn't as involved as a dinner party, a tea party can be the answer. It's an ideal format for a bridal or baby shower, a graduation or retirement party, a birthday celebration, or time to catch up with good friends.
The food is prepared before your guests arrive, and is either presented buffet style, or by passing plates of goodies at the table. The only thing you need to serve is the tea itself, leaving you plenty of time to relax and enjoy your guests.
Your guest list can include dozens of people or a few close friends with whom you'd like to share an intimate conversation.
In many parts of the world, tea time is an honored tradition of refinement and elegance where tables are set with china, silver, and white linens. These add polish and grace to the occasion and, in our fast-paced world, they remind us to slow down and enjoy the moments that add meaning to our lives.
