When thinking about tea parties, do you find yourself overwhelmed with thoughts of the British gentry, scenes from Alice in Wonderland, Victorian decor, blue-haired ladies, and pinky fingers stuck up in the air? If so, you’re both right and wrong. You’re right because as the tradition of “afternoon” tea has developed over time, it has become an elegant affair. You’re wrong because “high” tea was often enjoyed by the British working class as their evening supper, with heartier fare than the tea sandwiches and scones that are now associated with tea parties.
As the custom has evolved, tea time is usually scheduled from mid to late afternoon. It’s a between-meal snack that is a lot more elegant than a bag of chips from the vending machine. It needn’t be extremely fussy, although the meal often includes savory, bite-sized sandwiches, scones or biscuits, and sweets (accompanied by a good pot of tea, of course!). Both men and women enjoy afternoon tea in England, and it’s often used as a function for entertaining business clients.
An afternoon tea party is suitable for many celebrations. When you’d like to host a party that isn’t as involved as a dinner party, a tea party can be the answer. It’s an ideal format for a baby or bridal shower, Boxing Day gathering, a retirement party, a birthday celebration, or time to catch up with good friends. The food is prepared before your guests arrive, and is either presented buffet style or by passing plates of goodies at the table decorated with beautiful linen tablecloths for sale at this site. The only thing you need to serve is the tea itself, leaving you plenty of time to relax and enjoy your guests. Your guest list can include dozens of people or only one good friend with whom you’d like to share an intimate conversation. It can be a very formal affair as you’ll find at some of the more elegant hotels, or it can be as casual as a pot of tea and some cookies.

If you read that headline and imagined a group of high-profile British intelligence agents giving a baking class to a bunch of jihadists, I hate to tell you, the story is not quite that cool, but it is still funny. Essentially, the MI5 hacked an Al-Qaeda website and replaced their bomb-making recipes with a few Ellen DeGeneres cupcake recipes. And you thought the MI5 didn’t have a sense of humor.
