Private Tea Party for your Birthday?

Yummy Patisserie Birthday Tea Party

We always say here at Tea Party – any excuse! And really celebrating a Birthday is all too perfect.  You know, it doesn’t have to be a milestone one either (although we have had a fabulous 100th Birthday celebration).

I must confess however, I do love a Sweet 16th..just such a pretty thing to have in the tea room. It gives the girls the most wonderful reason to dress up, get glamorous and enjoy a very special rite of passage – and I think at that age, with supervision they can have very grown up!

And anyway, I can put my money where my mouth is, as I myself celebrated my own 40th Birthday in the venue! I even baked my own Birthday Cake. You can bring in a cake (and we don’t charge ‘cakeage’ here)…I mean, what’s a celebration, if you can’t bring your own cake? And on another note, we like it when we get to display a huge beautiful cakey confection …even better if we get offered a slice! We try to refuse, but hey, we like cake and wouldn’t be here at Tea Party if we didn’t.

Ok, so, we do hold great birthday tea parties..30th, 40th, 50th…need I go on..but we do get 27th’s 32’s…you get my don’t have to wait till you reach a decade. You grab your friends, family and if you like your other half (and why not?!) to basically eat cake. Well, there is other stuff too..patisserie, cupcakes, scones, delectable finger sandwiches, lemonade…you get the picture. And it’s all for you. No one else cramping your’s private and you can do what you like (well sort of). You can have a right old sing song with our hosted karaoke..thankfully I can’t sing, so I won’t try and join in. Or you could have a naked butler serving you ..perhaps entertaining you…I’ll be looking at the floor. But that’s just me.

So there you go. Your own birthday event. On your own. As much noise as you like. In fact we like.

Hen Party vs Bridal Shower Tea Party at our Tea Room in London

Bridal Shower Afternoon Tea Party Venue London

Here at Tea Party, we have deliberated this question many times. Hen Party or Bridal Shower? What is the best for you?
Did you know? Some do both! The reason being is that a Hen Party Tea Party is more about doing some old fashioned stuff. It can be part of an overall hen party weekend where the bride to be has an action packed 2 days ahead. Included in this, is the opportunity to get together either before or after the activities begin. Some find that bonding over tea and bubbles is the perfect opportunity for everyone to meet and get to know each other before heading out perhaps for dinner and a few cocktails. Or the alternative, an afternoon tea party before heading home. There may be games played (make a wedding dress from loo roll is a firm favourite). A ‘Mr & Mrs’ type quiz whereby the groom has provided some answers to some ‘delicate’ questions. Some girls even order a naked butler, because if you think about it, just doesn’t seem right to have with a Bridal Shower.
Further more, the Bridal Shower tends to be a more delicate affair. Perhaps it’s symbolic of more sedate tea party in which the bride celebrates very close to the wedding. Or is that wrong? Is it an American idea in similar vein to the imported and totally fabulous Baby Shower?
Bridal Showers tend to be up to a week before the big day. The Bride to be desires a very pretty setting (consequently and we love this) finds that our pretty private venue is the perfect space to sit and sip tea. Discuss the wedding over delicate finger sandwiches, a cream tea and scrummy cakes.
