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 am so happy with my invitations. The quality of the paper is great...weighty and perfectly textured. The design is so elegant. The only thing I would say is that they are smaller than I expected but I was reading that's that is a good thing as it saves on postage! Service was also prompt and a pleasant experience."
"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!"
"My color theme for my wedding it a variation of purples and this invitation was just perfect for it. The quality is also great! Delivery was amazingly fast! I am very satisfied with my finished product and would definitely recommend them to anyone."
"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!"
"My fiance and I fell in love with these invitations because of the beautiful trees. The invitation was simple, yet perfect to describe to our guests the feel of our wedding. The invitations turned out beautifully. I gave the Design 4 stars only because there isn't room to add much else - so the wording you see is really all that will fit (which in reality, is probably a good thing so that the invitation doesn't get too cluttered.)"
