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 was so afraid to order my shipment without seeing the exact card proof but I love them! I had ordered the LINEN background because others had recommended it, and instead of the textured I ordered the PEARL WHITE SHIMMER for a more modern look. I couldn't be happier with them. It looks like, from other reviewers, you really have to change the background to linen if you want the shimmer. I hadn't liked the roughness of the original sample. The red is a bit on the pink side but not too much. The designers were able to put the little Ganesh in the top circle for me which I was very impressed with! I definitely recommend!"
"I am having and as Asian-American wedding and was looking for an invitation that wouldn't put us over out budget but still had a nice Asian flair. I loved the design and to top it off the little elephant on the front and back made everything come together perfectly. My family is from Laos the land of a million elephants. I was able to keep the information simple yet it still made the invitation beautiful. The customer service was wonderful. I received my proofs within a timely manner and when I did come in contact with any staff they were always friendly, and knowledgeable."
"I have recently ordered this in the gold text with the white envelopes. Quality of paper, text and colours were brilliant, clear resolution and of fine quality. All personal design requests that i had made were dealt with in no time, quick, friendly helpful service. All ordered online, did not have to telephone or get in contact with anyone, was a simple and easy process overall. Delivery of this item was much faster than i had anticipated, as it was an international delivery it was delivered within 2 working days, which i am very pleased with as i was told it would take up to 5-11 days. Very pleased with this product and with Wedding Paper Divas, especially as this was my first time coming across this website and purchasing from here. i will most definitely recommend this card for someone who is looking for a simple yet elegant wedding invitation. I will also be ordering from Wedding Paper Divas again as i am really impressed with the service, quality and range of choice."
"These invitations were better than I expected. They were absolutely stunning. I was extremely impressed by the customer service of Wedding Paper Divas. They stand by their products and won't settle for anything less than flawless. I appreciate their service and I'm highly satisfied with my order!! My Save the dates were beautiful too!!!"
"Ordering my invitations from Wedding Paper Divas was overall one of the best online shopping experiences I've ever had, and I shop online all the time. I actually ordered 2 different designs for the 2 different wedding celebrations we're having. Both sets required some editing of the standard design, and the process of making all desired changes was quick, seamless, easy. Everything arrived when expected, as expected. Excellent quality. I would recommend Wedding Paper Divas to anyone!"
