Afternoon Tea Parties - A la carte or Packages

Tea Party Options



A traditional afternoon tea party with a twist – we bring the party to you! 

We make your hostess role exactly as you envision it. Don't have the time to prepare all the delicious teaparty delicacies? Our full teaparty catering option provides you with an extensive menu to choose from - including Scones, Devonshire Cream, Jams, sweets, tea sandwiches and savories and of course a wide variety of loose-leaf tea blends.                                                              (Note: We can accommodate most food allergies – please discuss with us.)

Do you want to prepare your own food but don't have the proper tableware to create that elegant teaparty ambience? We have curated a beautiful collection of vintage tableware: China tiered serving trays, teapots, teacups & saucers, cream & sugar sets and luncheon plates. For preparing the tea, we have hot water urns, and even a "tea prep kit". How about the finishing details? Centerpieces, napkins, tablecloths & runners - we have those too! And for fun - we have fascinators for your guests to wear during the party (and top hats too!)

Do you want a completely "hands off" hostessing event? We can supply staff to set up your table decor, prepare and serve the tea - even do the cleanup. 

We work with you to create the event that you want. 

For A la carte food menus or Vintage table decor rentals, please send us a note to thetravellingteacups@gmail.com to request our menu or rental listing. 

Note: A minimum of 3 weeks notice on full teaparty bookings is preferrred during our busy Spring/Summer seasons - thank you!
