Afternoon Tea Parties
An uppity elegant drawing room. Dressed in graceful yet fashionable outfits. Fancy assorted teas sipped from vintage cups, with pinkies up. Amidst intriguing conversations about life and light banter too. Dainty finger sandwiches as savory treats. Choicest of cakes and pastries lined up on tiered cake stands. Such is the wonderful tradition of the British Afternoon Tea. A culture from the late 19th Century royalty which continues even today. Afternoon Teas started off as a private ceremony by a Duchess in England to quash her hunger pangs between breakfast and dinner, the only two meals at that time. Over the years, it has become a social and cultural norm and has now evolved into a luxury experience. Several hotels in London and even outside of the UK offer exquisite and customized Afternoon Tea menus for guests to enjoy a calm and relaxed afternoon. Menus typically include assorted teas infused with exotic flavours to provide a unique experience. The vast array of sweets at an afternoon tea include… breads, jams, scones, miniature cakes, tarts, cream, chocolates, eclairs, macaroons… the list is delightfully scrumptious and endless. And Afternoon Tea parties are not just for adults, in fact, tea parties with some fun and games can make for a unique theme birthday party for little girls!
