Tea Party

Tea Party

A tea party is a formal, ritualized gathering for afternoon tea.

Formal tea parties are often characterized by the use of prestige utensils, such as bone china or silver. The table is made to look its prettiest, with cloth napkins and matching cups and plates. In addition to tea, larger parties may provide punch, or in cold weather, hot chocolate. The tea is accompanied by a variety of easily managed foods: thin sandwiches, such as cucumber or tomato, cake slices, buns or rolls, and cookies are all common.
