Tea Party Packages 

With any complete package bookings, we include many tea party "extras" including complimentary gold fabric napkins folded into roses, menu cards or custom menus in frames, fascinators for guests to wear during your event, and delivery within Calgary city limits and pickup the following day.

The Travelling Teacups Experience: We will arrive about 1.5 hours prior to your event start time, bringing all of the beautiful china dishware, flatware and table decor. We transform your space with an elegant tablescape, creating a picture-perfect setting. The utmost attention to detail is extended to both the table setup and the placement of food on our tiered china plating to create a visual feast, prior to the actual tea party feast! Your tea selections are prepped so that all you have to do is add the hot water (we even have that ready to go too!).
