It's Afternoon Tea Week 2021! Let's Celebrate Our Fave Themed Afternoon Teas!


Afternoon Tea Week 2021
It's that time again! Afternoon Tea Week 2021 is upon us! 
What's more, with the launch of our own loose leaf tea range last month, we thought it was the perfect time to show you guys some of our most memorable get-togethers! Large or small, afternoon tea was always the focus and proved the perfect accompaniment to weddings, baby showers, open evenings, corporate events and pop-up tearooms. Everybody loves a bit of tea and cake! What's more our love of a theme has allowed us to really incorporate our humble beginnings of prop-creating and supplying!
As we've diversified a little more this year, and with being unable to cater our usual afternoon tea events over the last 18 months (hello afternoon tea platters!) we've found ourselves reminiscing about some of our favourite themed afternoon tea events from over the past 5 years! Whether it be a themed tea party, a classically vintage-do, a pop-up tearoom, a themed hamper, corporate treats, supplying afternoon tea to local establishments or feeding the local Mayor, we thought we'd share a few with you of our best bits with you - so grab a cuppa!

 

1. Oz-inspired Charity Day in Aid of Autism Awareness 

This was an event we co-hosted with a local MP very early on in our event-planning careers! A whole lot of planning, prepping, designing, building and baking resulted in a fun-filled day all for an amazing cause and in collaboration with the Town Council!

2. Surprise Disney Tea Party

This was VERY exciting! It involved a couple of VERY early starts and plenty of sugar! We were asked to collaborate on a project for a London-based post-production house on a Natwest promo for their YouTube channel (and we were even lucky enough to get the ok from Disney to make this event one to remember!) We were asked to help to surprise a young family with a trip to Disneyland Paris as part of Natwest's campaign to give something back to some of their most-valued customers, and of course a full-on surprise Disney Afternoon Tea Party was in order, complete with props and our own custom-built sweet shop! You can check out the video over on our Facebook page, link at the bottom of the screen!

3. Wizards' 21st Afternoon Tea Party

A birthday tea fit for a witch or wizard! This party had it all! Props to dress in, magical treats and shot potions! Click the link below to get a run down of the day, or check out our Facebook page (link at the bottom of the screen!) for our video edit of the day! LOVED this one!

4. Circus Birthday Party

This was a quirky one and we LOVED it! Perhaps a little spin on 'Afternoon Tea' - this was a full circus-themed party for a circus of little ones! Tickets, popcorn, corndogs and more!

5. Steampunk Pop-Up Tearoom

Tasked with coming up with a whole host of Steampunk treats proved quite the task for this bunch of tea and cake-loving enthusiasts! Hand-poured chocolate cogs, salted caramel-swirl cupcakes, vintage cherry cola and triple layer victoria sponges filled our cake-cabinets and the day proved a big success! We were even honoured enough to provide the vintage china for the famous 'Tea Duel' (give it a google!)

6. Fairy-themed 98th Surprise Afternoon Tea Party

We really enjoyed this laid back prettily-themed party! Garlands of Autumnal leaves, berries and ornate signage graced the tables dotted around the beautifully cozy village hall, and what's more - we were able to incorporate the gorgeous illustrations of the lady of the hour into our framed Afternoon Tea menus - one of our absolute faves and our most personally-themed!

7. Mad Hatter's Tea Party

A long journey to Bristol and a house full of wonderful ladies to feed! This one included props, personalised sweetie bags, flamingos, toadstools and several three-tiered delights!

8. Dirty Dancing-inspired Afternoon Tea Party

A perfect theme for a wonderful lady! This was a blast! Personalised framed Afternoon Tea Menus, vintage pastel coloured sweetie bags and a vintage pink china collection served several of her nearest and dearest!

9. Cissie's 90th Afternoon Tea Party

A village hall FULL of Cissie's close family and friends made this one extra special 90th birthday celebration. A table full of her favourite foods and a gramophone blasting out hits from every decade of her life helped to make this a party to remember and the best event that village hall has ever seen! (Totally biased!) A super-personalised collection of handmade favours, photo boards and the perfect cake places this one in our Top 10!

10. Halloween Crafternoon Tea  

This was one on our bucket-list for a LONG time! What's not to love? Tea and cake? Halloween crafts? Leaving the kids at home and escaping mid-week for some time with your mates?! Perfect. Getting crafty with cake was a lovely evening and a chance for locals to mingle and have a laugh together with the chance to take their crafty creations home and decorate for the spooky season! 

The photo album from this event can be found over on our Facebook page (Link at the bottom of the screen!)
