This is the fun part. You choose the menu and the venue and we will do the rest. We will discuss with you the type of party you are looking for.
The Downton Abbey look (classic and elegant) Matching china, including sugar bowls, milk jugs and cake plates. Vintage starched lace table cloths or embroidered cloths. Silver or china tea pots. Silver trays for serving.
Shabby Chic (mix and match crockery) This is the style of today, both fun and charming staying with a colour theme or combining all colours. Elegant non-matching tea pots, sugar bowls and milk jugs. Vintage embroidered table cloths. Wooden trays covered in exquisite cloths for serving.
Mad Hatters Tea Party where anything goes! You can have Pimms/wine served out of the tea pots, jelly out of soup bowls, sandwiches out of cups. You choose and we will go along with it!
The Tea Party
I had a little tea party,
This afternoon at three.
Myself ate all the sandwiches,
While I drank up the tea;

Not an easy time for anyone but we can help on the day by providing tasty food served on our lovely vintage crockery and lots and lots of tea. Leave the organising to us; this will be one less thing for you to worry about, giving you more time to be with your guests on such a sad occasion.
We will arrive in time to set out your tea on our wonderful china and table cloths, have the kettle on ready for your arrival home and then leave discreetly, unless you have chosen the option for us to stay and serve. We will return at an agreed time to collect the dirty crockery. This does not have to be on the same day so there is no hurry for your guests to leave.
