Let’s talk about Vintage Tea party. The concept of tea parties is thoroughly British; in fact the credit of introducing the concept of afternoon tea goes to none other than Anna 7th Duchess of Bradford. It is said that she was very fond of tea and treats so she asked her servants to bring her tea in the afternoon with savories and sweets. Then she started inviting friends over and hence the concept of afternoon tea was born.
The English ladies wore their long gowns and gloves and gathered to have tea in the afternoon. The crisp white table clothes, delicate china and silverware were laid. Different delicacies were served with the different flavors of tea. Soon the concept of afternoon tea spread in all western Worlds. The afternoon tea parties that were a routine for the English ladies of that era are now known as the vintage tea party.
A vintage tea party is organized keeping in mind the true essence of the English tradition. The decor, the crockery, the menu, the flavors of tea etc. all reflect the true English tradition of tea parties. If you are recreating a 1920’s tea party you should use impeccably crisp and white table linen, silver teapots and beautiful flower arrangements to adorn your tables. By taking care of small details you can create the sophistication and elegance of the bygone time.
If you arrange for a game of croquet and add Champaign cocktails you will really bring your vintage tea party to life. The most important thing in your vintage tea party is the antique, vintage china and silverware. These will truly make your party successful and do it justice.
The truth is that it can be a little baffling to arrange a vintage tea party on your own but that does not mean that you cannot have one. There are many catering services that will arrange and organize the whole party for you. It is quite convenient to hire the services of a reliable and reputed catering company.
