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.
"Absolutely beautiful. It was really easy to customize the wedding invite. My designer did a great job of brining my ideas to life. I really wanted to be able to include our parents in the invite and the designer came up with a great solution and moved a few things around. The invite is exactly what we wanted. Thank you so much!"
"I absolutely love my invitations. Another beautiful added touch to my day. Thank you for your hard work and getting it to me in a timely manner. I will definitely recommend to my friends."
"Our invitations arrived recently (sooner than expected) and look absolutely beautiful! The design requests we submitted were perfect and really helped to make our invitations unique."
"I am so happy with these invitations! They are simple, yet beautiful and classy. I wanted to put all the information (reception and all) on one card, and I needed to make a second set in another language. The designer followed my instructions perfectly and made great suggestions to fit the text on the page. They turned out even better than expected. The paper quality (I used the shimmer paper) was excellent. I would recommend the shimmer paper. I can't say enough about the service as well. The proofs were done so quickly, the people on the phone were amazing and friendly and the package was delivered days ahead of time. The only hiccup I had was that they were unable to tell me what the customs/duties would be so I had to just keep my fingers crossed. In the end, it wasn't so expensive (about $60 for Canada). I would recommend Wedding Paper Divas to any bride-to-be!"
"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)!"
