Why are High Teas So Popular?

Event Planning Tips, Tricks, Trends

High teas are experiencing a renaissance in Melbourne.

From simply prepared styling for a successful fundraiser, to elegant high tea weddings served on fine china trios, vintage lace overlays & the latest floral blooms and organic balloon decor, high teas bring a new level of engagement to Melbourne’s celebrations.

Why choose a high tea style of catering for your wedding, corporate event, fundraiser or private function?

  • High teas are great for workplace events as they can ‘fit’ in around a busy workday, bringing peers & clients together.
  • Consider a high tea for your product launch – offer a mix of sweet and savoury to tempt all palates while wooing  your guests with your launch. Consider custom crafted logo desserts, banners, balloons and more!
  • As they are day time events, they are a good choice for first birthdays, communions, baptisms and christening receptions.
  • People are so busy these days running around, it is nice to mark a special occasion during the daytime. It’s memorable too!
  • They are tailor made for ladies days.
  • It can be a budget-stretcher as you will not be serving your guests a meal. This makes them an increasingly popular choice for fundraisers.
  • High tea style occasions can offer sweet and/or savoury.
  • Theming can be loads of fun, very elaborate, tailored, or very simple.
  • Kitchen preparation time & expertise is minimal – little or no cooking on the day.

How to Create a Unique High Tea Style

  • Colour themed

  • favourite character or activity

  • sport hero or superhero

  • choose a feature related to the event, eg, teapots or cups for The Biggest Morning Tea

  • go eclectic – mesh two features together, eg, construction/industrial at a garden party

  • a perennial favourite is the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

  • feature a food item, eg,matching petite cupcakes, chocolate fountain
