Sweet, Sweeter, Sweetest….

A tea party is a delightful way to spend quality time with friends, indulging in conversation, delicious treats, and of course, a warm cup of tea. To elevate the experience, incorporating beautiful ceramics can add a touch of elegance and sophistication. Whether you’re planning an intimate tea party with friends or a bachelor party that’s gaining popularity, here’s all you need to know to create a memorable event.

Choosing the perfect tea set

The foundation of any tea party lies in selecting the right tea set. Beautiful ceramics, such as fine bone china or hand-painted porcelain, can add an element of charm and refinement to your gathering. Look for sets that feature intricate patterns, colors, or even modern minimalist designs, depending on your personal style and the ambiance you wish to create. Our cups and plates come in the most unique designs; covered with antique, vintage, or cute prints. See our High Tea Selection

Select Tea Varieties

Offering a wide array of tea varieties is essential for a successful tea party. Consider including classics like Earl Grey or English Breakfast for those who prefer traditional flavors. To cater to diverse taste buds, offer herbal infusions, green teas, or even exotic blends such as chamomile lavender or fruity hibiscus. Make sure to provide a variety of options to accommodate everyone’s preferences. At House of Style we have a nice high quality selection of Portugese tea from the Acores, the only place in Europe were they grow very nice and rich flavours.

Preparing Delicious Treats

No tea party would be complete without a delectable spread of treats. Whip up a combination of sweet and savory delicacies to satisfy different cravings. Offer finger sandwiches with various fillings like cucumber and cream cheese, smoked salmon, or egg salad. For the sweet tooth, include scones with clotted cream and jam, miniature cakes, macarons, or delicate pastries. Remember to consider dietary restrictions and offer gluten-free or vegan options. And present them on a elegant stand, bowl or plate.

Setting the Ambiance

Creating the right ambiance is crucial for a lovely tea party. Decorate the space with flowers, delicate lace tablecloths, and elegant tea light holders. Consider using beautiful ceramics, such as teapots, teacups, and saucers, as decorative elements. Soft background music or a gentle instrumental playlist can enhance the overall atmosphere and add a touch of sophistication.

Engaging Tea Party Games and Activities

To make your tea party more interactive and memorable, consider incorporating games or activities. Tea leaf reading, where guests can have their fortunes told, is a popular choice. You can also organize a tea tasting session, where participants can sample different teas and guess their flavors. Adding a touch of creativity and entertainment will ensure your guests have a wonderful time.


Hosting a tea party with friends or even a bachelor party is a delightful way to create lasting memories. By incorporating beautiful ceramics, selecting a variety of teas, preparing delicious treats, and setting the right ambiance, you can create an atmosphere of elegance and relaxation. Remember to personalize the event to suit your guests’ preferences and interests. With careful planning and attention to detail, your tea party will be a resounding success that everyone will cherish. Click here for a High Tea selection
