Tea for two is a fantastic way to enjoy afternoon tea with a great friend. Just because the event is small, doesn’t mean it needs to be any less special. You can easily create a special afternoon tea party in your home with only one guest.
Invite your best friend, your mother or daughter to a tea party for two and enjoy an afternoon of tea and treats without leaving your house.
Set the table in a gorgeous vintage tea party style. Bring out your best vintage style teacups, saucers and plates. Add lovely teapots, a sugar bowl, milk jug and teaspoons. Serve afternoon treats on pretty tiered serving plates.
We love this Royal Albert Country Roses Tea set in pink and white polka dots for a sweet afternoon tea party for two.
You don’t have to have matching chinaware. These perfectly mismatched teacups, saucers and plates are a great example of how to coordinate vintage style chinaware. These mismatched sets come already coordinated and mismatched to perfection.
When you are hosting a smaller tea party, it is the small details that make the event special. We love these Royal Albert porcelain teaspoons that beautifully compliment the mismatched sets.
When you guest has arrived it is time to serve the tea and let the talking begin.
For a special addition to the traditional tea serving, you can opt to use individual tea strainers in each cup. This one has a beautiful Rose quartz crystal attached.
Choosing the perfect tea to serve is important. Our pick is the Royal Palace Tea, a black tea with a hint of lemon and grapefruit – perfect for treating someone special.
We are also quite taken by this new master tea blend SOHO, a black tea with chocolate and coconut. It smells and tastes incredible!
A tea party for two does not require a lot of food, but it is nice to have a variety of options like a high tea. Some sweet things and some savoury. We find it hard to go past macaroons as one sweet option!
Petit Fours are another classic option to serve.
Savory options include Beef Wellingtons, Shrimp skewers, and asparagus rolls.
More fabulous options for are Creamy Brie Canapés, mini cheesecakes and Brie with Raspberry Filo rolls.
