What if you get some unique idea to host a party like- a tea or coffee party in the mid or late afternoon? Isn’t it a great thought? It includes a meal snack that is elegant and need not have to be extremely fussy. The meal can include cookies, bite-sized sandwiches, sweets, scones etc. with a pot of tea, of course!

Afternoon Tea Snacks

Everyone enjoys afternoon tea and it is the best way to celebrate events like birthdays, anniversaries, promotions or a baby shower with a small group of family and friends. The only thing you’ve to manage is to get a meal prepared before the time guests arrive and also manage the place i.e. a garden or the hall of your house. The meal should include snacks that are bite-sized and are a great combination with the tea. You can present the snacks in a buffet style or in plates that can be passed at the table. After this, you’ll only be left with the tea that you have to serve at the time your guests arrive. All this leaves you with a plenty of time to relax and enjoy afternoon tea with your guests. We are here with a recipe to host an afternoon tea party in your Hertfordshire house or farm:

Major ingredients to be needed:

  • A couple of hours
  • A dash of kindness
  • Friends, family or neighbours (quantity as per your choice)
  • Tea/coffee, snacks( biscuits, cake, sandwiches etc.)
  • A pinch of bravery

Method to be used:

  • Decide when and where: Always prefer planning such an event on the weekends so that all of your guests feel comfortable in joining you for the celebration. It is upon your discretion where you need to organise your event, but a lot number of people prefer organising it either at their homes, the front lawn or outside in any park or local community centre. Planning this event at your place will cost you nothing and it is one of the best ways to gather people at your house and have unlimited fun with your loved ones.

  • Send invites: As soon as you decide the day and the place of your tea party, create invites and send them to all your guests. There are a number of ways to invite people to the event, for instance, you can prepare small invites or you can personally visit them to invite. Also, you can invite them to a phone call and drop the time and day of the get-together vis SMS.

  • Get creative with space: No matter where you have invited your guests, make sure that you use the space effectively and make it look attractive and fascinating. Decorate the area using some creative stuff, balloons etc. use a particular space to keep all meals to be offered to guests together. Use table cloth and flowers on the table to make it look well managed. Properly arrange snacks, tea, coffee, water on the table. Also, you can plan for some games to boost up the enjoyment.

  • Happy munching: Munching can so much fun. Make sure that you plan for interesting snacks that make a fantastic pair with the core component of the event i.e. ‘Tea’. If you need some guide or inspiration, the internet is always open for you. While hosting an afternoon tea party in your Hertfordshire farm, make munching your centre of attraction as you’re inviting people for having fun while munching. Get hot pots of tea/ coffee ready with a number of snacks or goodies presented perfectly on the table.

  • Have the basic kit: The tiered cake stand can add a boost to your party arrangements. You can place it in the centre of the table after filling it up with the goodies, cup cakes, muffins, sandwiches, cookies etc. This cake stand will help you showcase the varieties of meals you’re having to offer your guests. If you aren’t having a cake stand, you can use your best crockery and make it look appealing using laces, flowers, napkins etc.
