On the day

9. We will arrive armed with all the china, linen, food and extras to begin laying your tables, aiming to complete the set-up just before your guests arrive:
– We refrigerate the sweets, milk, and cream, and fill up the hot water urn to boil for the tea
– We lay out tablecloths
– We set out teacups, saucers, side plates and cake stands, and lay out the cutlery, napkins and high tea guides
– We arrange the sandwich platters, teapots, and milk and sugar jars and fill tea bowls with a variety of T2 tea bag flavours
– We begin plating up sandwiches and cover with cling film to keep them fresh
– As your start time nears, we heat the savouries (optional) and begin plating up sweets, scones, cream and jam
– We fill milk jugs with milk and add any finishing touches, ready for your event
10. Your guests arrive and you enjoy a truly memorable day
After the event
11. Rinse out the teacups, milk jugs, cream and jam bowls, remove food scraps from the plates and leave it all on one table
12. We will come back at a mutually convenient time to pack down the equipment and take it away.
13. Leave a (hopefully good) review on our website Instagram or Facebook and tag @highteadelights or #highteadelights on Instagram
