Presentation is everything
It is often said that presentation is everything and this is certainly the case when it comes to hosting a Valentine’s Day tea party. Using tea service sets is a good way of giving your party a sense of elegance – there’s something quite charming about china cups and saucers!
Size isn’t everything
If you opt for a high tea theme for your party, remember that food and drink is typically served in small portions. Dainty cakes and sandwiches are usually the best way forward – and remember that if you are serving various types of loose leaf tea that smaller cups are best.
