Why not make Spring inspired snacks such as flower meringues, sandwiches cut into the shape of bubble bees, or cake pops decorated in bright colours. Your friends will love eating which catching up!
- Several Types of Tea ☕️
You can’t only supply one type of tea at a tea party! Why not take a survey of your friends and find out which tea is most popular? We recommend having an assortment of tea bags as well as one or two ready-made teas. Here is a list of some teas you could use:
- English breakfast
- Black Tea
- Green Tea
- Chai Tea

A tea party wouldn’t be complete without matching teacups! However, sets can be quite expensive. That is why Wild Cherry Events rents out a few different tea sets that will make your party that much better. You will need as many teacups as guests, at least three high tea serving stands, a kettle and a teapot.
- Stylish Invitations 🔖
