Celebrate High Tea at the Park
Sometimes it could be quite difficult to think of what to do to celebrate Mother’s Day in style year after year. It’s such a special day and we all have mothers and mother figures in our lives whom we appreciate and love celebrating…But how do we make our celebrations really special? This year, I shared different ways to celebrate Mother’s Day. HerCanberra recently featured some of my best ideas for a Mother’s Day High Tea at the Park, click here to read the article.
High Tea is a great way to celebrate birthdays, hen’s nights, baby showers, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day or just a family and friend get-together. There are many wonderful places in Canberra which offer elaborate, elegant High Tea as well as mobile High Tea. We made it a little more special for mums this Mother’s Day, so why not try and create High Teas in the Park as a different way to celebrate?!
The first thing to think about is finding a nice spot for your friends and family to enjoy. Find a special spot in a park, or your backyard, your selected spot must be shady and surrounded by greenery to fit in with this theme. Choose a couple of nice, comfortable rugs to sit on. For a table, it’s great to use a flat surfaced log or a low sitting bench or footstool that aims to provide easy access to all the yummy treats you will have on offer.
Now that you’ve set up the environment, you can decorate it. There might be flowers already in the shady area you’ve chosen but if not, it’s always great to add a bunch of flowers to your picnic basket to create some extra ambience. Finish this off by using either vintage or modern crockery.
Next, the fun part, choosing your High Tea food! Choose a selection of savoury and sweet delicacies to create variety. Keep your selections to bite-sized items that have an elegant look. You can find wonderful canapés and mini-sandwiches in pastry shops and bakeries. You can even find lovely petite fours and macaroons in supermarkets. The main thing to think about when selecting food for your high tea is what you want to match together or mismatch if you prefer! Add a variety of colours and textures to create interest in your high tea party.
Remember, tea is the highlight of this setting. Use elegant teacups, saucers and side plates that go with your teapot which is usually the centrepiece of your high tea display! To really make your High Tea special, make sure you have a selection of different teas to go with the lovely food you’ve chosen.
