Having afternoon tea with friends is a time-honored tradition in many families. In fact, for generations mothers, grandmothers, and little girls have gathered together to commemorate their family’s most important occasions with a hospitable tea service. Some people enjoy taking tea at venerable hotels and restaurants while others take pleasure in serving tea themselves. You can plan to have morning, afternoon, or even evening tea with your closest friends. Simply include a reception invitation when you send out flat wedding invitations to guests you wish to attend this private event. Everyone will eagerly await this special celebration.
Many tea services at organized as ladies’ parties and may even take the place of a bridal shower. There are many ways to serve tea that make gentlemen feel included, too. Ultimately a tea party is about sharing hospitality with others and sharing the best you have to offer. For practicality’s sake and for ease of planning, tea is best prepared for a relatively small number of people, usually 10 – 15 at most. For larger groups, consider booking a tea house or private event room at a hotel. This can greatly simplify the serving of food and drink and leave everyone free to enjoy each other’s company.
The menu for tea generally depends on what time of day it is served. These are basic guidelines to consider:
Tailor your menu to the tastes of your guests. Consider choosing seasonal ingredients for the very best taste. Your guests are sure to love spending time enjoying this hospitable tradition with you.
"I love my invitations! This was a simple yet elegant way for me to invite my guests to our wedding. Our picture on the invitation came out beautiful. I love how I was able to print on the front and back of the reception card, making it easy for both myself and my guests. Highly recommended for a simple, chic, and elegant girl!!"
"I ordered these for my wedding invitations, and they came our gorgeous! I loved the design and the color options they offered. I went with the square option, and used the cream colored background and solid color for the back design. I love that the paper is already shimmery, which also adds to the design. I did think the paper was a little thin, and maybe I should have ordered a thicker paper, but overall all I was very happy with my order and my invitations! My order also arrived earlier than expected."
"Beautiful cards. I got them printed on the shimmer paper and put them into laser cut envelopes I got from another source. So elegant and clean. Staff is AMAZING. Very kind and attentive, everytime I called them, they were very helpful and patient. My invitations arrived 1 week before scheduled delivery. Fast service! For canadian customers, please remember you will be charged the current exchange rate and duties via UPS (a few little surprises I forgot about when paying)!"
"Loved my pearlized invites! Didn't want them to be overly fancy but had just the right amount of delicate and they are beautiful!"
"I used these for my wedding invitations and everyone who received them RAVED! They are nice and thick and printed beautifully. DO NOT forget to include the reception information on your invite like I did! I had the church information but failed to include location and start time for the cocktail hour! It simply says "reception to follow." I also took these incites and glued them into a pocket fold that was gold. I put stickers with our initials on them to seal the pocket fold. Looked AMAZING"
