If you’re reading this, you are probably intrigued with the idea of hosting a “Tea Set” with an “urban appeal’. If you are considering planning an event honoring a bride’s upcoming nuptials, a soon-to-be mom, or a fundraising event, let Cuples Tea House help plan your special event.
Cuples signature Tea Party, otherwise known as “The Tea Set” introduces tea culture and its origins and rich history in an urban inspired atmosphere – less the doilies and lace.
The first thing you’ll need to do when planning your “Tea Set” is to determine is what type of teas you want to serve. Click here to view our tea selections. You should choose about six teas for your menu. Remember that the central part of your menu is the tea; the food serves as a compliment.
Speaking of food, your guests will experience all of the traditional elements of a tea party including the sweet stuff, the sandwiches and the savories. A full complete menu finger sandwiches/salads, fresh scones/biscuits and the sweet stuff (cakes and other iced goods.)
Finger sandwiches are part of your “Tea Set.” So choose an appealing assortment of sandwiches (up to 3 selections) for your event.
Scones/Biscuits usually follow the sandwiches. Cuples offer a selection to round out your mid-afternoon menu.
The final course of your “Tea Set” is the sweet stuff. Cuples offers a selection of cake, cupcakes, or small iced buns (traditionally known as fancies.). Check out our ‘tea party’ menu
As your guests arrive they will be greeted with a flavored tea. We will complete your “Tea Set” experience with a selection of gourmet honeys, jams and cream.
