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!"
"We LOVED these wedding invites from the second we saw them and got tons of positive feedback! I love the subtle color variations in the leaf designs (we used the green option - we were having an outdoor summer wedding) and think the font colors complimented it nicely. The only change we made was to put the phrase "reception to follow"and the "and" between our names into Willa Bold font rather than the script font. We were sent proofs promptly, and the designer listened to our suggestions. Overall, the printing quality was excellent, the invites arrived in a timely manner and just as advertised, and the paper was fantastic. What helped most was that we ordered sample invitations from WPD (8 for free) and they send you a super helpful paper stock sample guide. I would highly recommend doing this, because it shows you exactly what you're going to get! Overall, we were super happy with the invitations!"
"These Invites came out beautifully. We changed around a bit of the wording- tailoring them for our wedding. We both loved them. They are unique and memorable."
"My fiance and I are having a garden wedding in August 2015. I wanted a classy floral invite, and these caught my attention. Plus, unlike others, the date stood out, which I wanted. With a few background colors to choose, I went with the chenille/pink because it harmonized well with the rest of the card and the green lettering. They are absolutely beautiful, and I can't wait to hear what our guests think! Thank you WPD's!"
"This card was absolutely beautiful. I had mine printed on pearl white paper with the shimmer and edged corners that matched the design on the card perfectly. I was looking for a card that had a whimsical feel to it without being too dramatic. This card was the perfect combination of elegance and simplicity. I was able to customize the color of one of the flowers (from Purple to Orange) without any problems. I received so many compliments on it, and I believe this was the perfect card for our special day."
