Tea Party Catering

The Vintage Tea and Cake Company specializes in catering the full Tea Party experience. Our service includes the Afternoon Tea Menu, delicious loose tea in teapots and all the tableware needed for your event. Our event coordinator arrives to your event venue or home and sets-up all the china and food for your guests to enjoy. We set-up both individual table settings and buffet. We leave you to enjoy the party and then return at a convenient prearranged time to collect everything. An event coordinator or server can stay to accommodate your event if desired. We collect all the china without you worrying about any washing! We also provide you with electric hot water urns and instructions to assist you in brewing the tea. Extra items depending on availability include tablecloths, iced tea & cocktail glasses, and linen napkins.
