Entertaining: Hosting a Low Tea
Well there seems to be a lot of different definitions about high teas and low teas, but I think I have found the best one; which seems to make a lot of sense to me. Like to hear it; here it go...
A "low tea" is served in the afternoon, like a snack; typically in a living room setting. This is where you have "low" tables and chairs. You would also have a tea cart to serve from; which helps with getting everything from the kitchen to the living room area. I like the look of a three tiered serving tray; however you may set everything out buffet style, or you can offer courses.
The proper way to set up your three tiered tray is: scones on top, tea sandwiches in the middle and pastries on the bottom. I, however, like it the way I have explained above in the photo. I believe we can add our own twists with how we may host our tea, because that is how a modern homemaker thinks. ;-) Serve gorgeous food your friends will enjoy. Have fun with it...it doesn't need to be stuffy.
As you can see I have incorporated Society Social's fabulous bar cart; as well as their chic hostess gown. The only thing that matters...is to make it YOU. When you do it that way, your get together will run much smoother.
