Step one: Choose a theme
Adding a theme to a High Tea adds a little excitement to the day. Whether you simply pick a colour or a fun item like a funky hat that each guest needs to wear. Dust off your matching tea set sitting at the back of the cupboard.
Step two: Choose your tea
Pick and choose the different types of tea your family will be enjoying, mix in some iced tea options for the kids. Boil the water and get your teapot ready.
Step three: Set the scene
Throwing a High Tea doesn’t have to mean breaking the bank with décor and special touches. Pick some fresh flowers from the garden, get a few candles lined up on a table cloth. Have some fun and make a few name cards to place on the table. There are no rules to décor. All that really matters is who you have with you and the special time you share with them.
Step four: Treats and eats
Much like décor, the snacks and sweets that you serve at your gathering don’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Have a look in your pantry and see what you can work with, small triangle sandwiches, fresh fruit dipped on chocolate or yogurt. Get creative and make a fresh batch of cookies, scones or venture out making rice crispy treats.
