PARTY DETAILS, as told by Renee…

The theme for this event was essentially a vintage high tea with beautiful blooms and florals! The colour palette chosen of peach, seafoam green and mint tied in beautifully with a hint of metallic gold. It was held at the Village Green Hall in the picturesque suburb if Breakfast Point in Sydney on Sunday the 30th September 2012.

Decorations consisted of hired props from Antique Events including the vintage dresser and side tables, old crates and a tea trolley and vintage suitcases and giant balloons with tissue paper tassel frills. The tables were adorned with beautiful crochet vintage doilies, individual plate settings and menus and beautiful matching Robert Gordon crockery. Old glass jars featured on the tables in white, gold and tiffany blue and they held beautiful blooms of peach and ivory coloured ranunculus, anemones, roses, peris mixed with daises and Australian natives. The Dessert and Candy Bar stationary matched the invitation, supplied by The Little Paper Pantry, featured a peony print that was used to create the imaging on the cookies and one of the mini cakes. The cakes and desserts were all hand made with touches of vintage whimsy in the beautiful soft peaches and fresh sea foam and mint green tones.

Catering was also supplied by Confetti & Crumbs, guests were treated to mini hand made tarts and gourmet sandwiches, scones with jams and vanilla cream, a selection of fine Harney Tea’s, Innocent Bystander Moscato and imported Mexican sodas.

    Hello Stephanie,
    The favors were just candy lollipops! We found those great shapes from a supplier here and they were the perfect colour. We also had the peach and mint swirl ones made by Any Occasion Events.

    Renee & Nina created a lovely tea for Linda. However, it was not technically a “High Tea,” but rather an “Afternoon Tea.” Afternoon Tea, or Low Tea, was the inspiration of Anna, 7th Duchess of Bedford (1783-1857), who found it difficult to wait so long between breakfast and dinner, the only two meals at that time. As dinner was served late, around 4:00 p.m., the Duchess began taking tea with some bread and butter, which were served on a low table. Her custom evolved into the lovely afternoon social occasion that continues today, anywhere between 2:00-5:00 p.m., and consisting of tea, tea sandwiches, cookies, scones and other pastries. On the other hand, High Tea was the evening meal of the working class, eaten after 5:00 p.m. at a high table (thus, the name), and consisting of hearty and plain dinner fare such as meats, vegetables and the like. High Tea was nothing like the fancier Afternoon or Low Tea.
