DIY High Tea

From it-girl gatherings and generational get-together to hen’s days and birthdays, ladies of all ages (and many a fine gentleman, too) are enjoying the company of dear friends over this wonderful revival of British tradition. Indulging in lady-like mini sandwiches and intricately decorated sweet treats from regal multi-tiered cake stands and sipping delicious organic fresh tea (or organic champagne) while donning your best dress. Very La-DI-Dah! Children can also enjoy a high tea birthday party.
