Two things The Sisters Wine and Soul Sister Events love is spending time with the amazing women in our lives and a good High Tea!
That’s why we’ve teamed up with Louise O’Sullivan and Sarah Davidson, founders of Soul Sister Events, to help you host a beautiful High Tea at home this festive season:
During this crazy year of social distancing it has made us realise even more how special and important the bond and support is that we get from with our girlfriends.
This festive time of year when we all get to slow down and enjoy some holidays is a great chance to get your girls together for an afternoon of fun, and what better way than to host a High Tea at home.
It doesn’t need to be complicated, keep it eclectic and stress free.
Bite Sized Treats
Get everyone to pick Savoury or Sweet and byo a plate of mini treats. Head to the frozen section of your supermarket for some easy savoury options, who can pass up a Sausage Roll. Homemade Brownie and Lemonade Scones are always a hit.
It’s not High Tea without the prettiest of Tea Cups! If you’re anything like the Soul Sisters and friends we have quite the collection between us to byo our own.
Don’t have your own then head to your nearest op shop and pick up some second hand tea cups. If you’re not buying the older collectable items you can get these reasonably cheap.
And while you’re not using them they look super cute displayed on shelves with flowers or even reuse them for handmade candles!
High Tea is not only about the ‘tea’ but is also a great chance to share a glass of wine, The Sisters Rosé would be a nice drop for a summer afternoon. Or take it one step further and whizz up a signature Cocktail.
Decor to Delight
Set the scene with a fully laid dining table or an outside picnic vibe with cushions and an old door as your table.
Some pretty flowers always make the occasion feel special. Keep it simple with some garden blooms popped into old jars or bottles.
Lastly have some fun and add a theme for the day – keep it festive with Xmas and wear your best high tea dress or turn back time and go 1920s glam, ostrich feathers and all.
Add an extra element and make it a book swap, bring along your favourite read to share, or get crafty and show off your knitting or crochet skills.
Most important is to enjoy the day with your Soul Sisters!
