For most people, the word “afternoon tea” conjures up the image of a decadent hotel feast with luxurious tableware and expensive tea. As intricate as they look, planning your own afternoon tea party can be immensely rewarding, and a great opportunity to impress your guests with your lifestyle know-how.

Afternoon tea party essentials every host needs

Setting up the spread for an afternoon tea party is not a small achievement. Display your fine porcelain. Delight your guests with teaware in intricate motifs and designs. It’s better to set up a plain tablecloth than a printed one as it tends to make the decorations stand out. White or pastel shades with luxurious metallic napkin holders will elevate your afternoon tea experience.

What’s an afternoon tea party without a full tea set? You’ll need high-quality utensils and tableware that will impress. A teapot, coffee pot, tea strainer, and sugar bowl is the basic setup for making your beverage. Sweets and savory treats can be presented on tiered serving trays or serving platters. Dessert plates are a great option too is space is a concern. Specialty butter and jam holders, as well as specific cutlery, is also essential. You’ll also need a milk jug for creamer and linen napkins on standby for any spillages.
