Tea Party Etiquette
RSVP a must, a hostess gift is always welcomed.
Arrive five to ten minutes early to a restaurant, never
early to a home (five minutes late is is fine.)
Set the table a day early, this is extremely helpful.
Prepare teapots, preheat your teapot with hot water prior to prevent the pot from from cooling the tea.
Timing list for the day of the party to keep on track.
Scones and delicate sandwiches best to make the day of the party. Tiny cakes and sweet treats may be made a few days ahead.
Place cards are always a nice touch.
Most important, have fun and enjoy your company.
