Hosting Christmas Afternoon Tea

These days anything goes but when hosting a Christmas Afternoon Tea there are still a few "rules" to go by!

Have a selection of teas to choose and have pretty Tea Pots and Teacups to serve them in like our new pieces in Natale!  Not everything has to match perfectly but coordinate like using our Vetro Gold Teacups. 

Keep things warm with the Natale Sprig Teapot Cozy by Crown Linen Designs!

What to serve? Traditionally you see a 3-tiered stand but you can also serve on cake stands.  Create foods from three types of categories, there are so many wonderful recipes online to choose from!

First would be finger sandwiches usually offering 2-4 varieties. 

Second is a selection of breads or scones for butter and jams.  

Third is something sweet like cakes, pastries or cookies!

Attire for a Christmas Afternoon Tea is smart casual and how perfect is the Pippa Ruffle Top by Crown Linen Designs, with its beautiful ruffle neck and pearl buttons!

Pretty little plates with linen napkins are a must!
