AFTERNOON TEA , HATS AND HEELS ;)

This event is dedicated to the girls from this Meetup ;) I have been fan of the Afternoon tea few years now and I though for a girly afternoon event is perfect!!


The credit for the custom of the Afternoon Tea goes to Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford in the early 19th century. The usual habit of serving dinner as late as 9pm left the Duchess hungry in the late afternoon. To stave off the hunger she would order tea, bread and butter and cakes to be served in her room. This was thought to be an excellent idea and the habit caught on and the afternoon tea was born.


Afternoon tea is served between 3pm to 5pm and traditionally starts with savory finger - sized smoked salmon, cucumber, or egg and mustard cress sandwiches - followed by scones with jam and cream (clotted cream in Devon), and finally a selection of cakes. Tea is traditionally served from heavy, ornate, silver teapots into delicate bone china cups. Milk or lemon served with the tea is still a personal preference. The sandwiches, the scones and the cakes should arrive at table on tired cake stands.


Im hosting this event in my place. I live in Kilchberg (Canton Zurich)

We all learn from each other about this England tradition!! You girls can bring some sandwiches, scones, muffins, sweets,etc. 

Very Important:

Dress code: Cocktail attire with a beautiful hat or hair accessory and high heels of course;)

Im so excited to enjoy this gossip girly afternoon with you!!

See you all very soon;)

Cheers!!
