Follow the British Tradition With a Two Hundred-Year History
Afternoon tea has been an elegant and originally aristocratic British custom since the early 1800s. This is a perfect moment to serve guests at a bridal shower, wedding reception, graduation party or afternoon garden party.
Origin of the Tea tradition
They say it all started with Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, who is believed to have started taking tea and a light afternoon snack in private in her boudoir to hold out during the long time between breakfast and dinner. Later on she started inviting a few friends to join her for a cup of tea, a light snack and an afternoon walk. This ritual became so popular that it was picked up by other hostesses, and eventually serving an exquisite afternoon tea became not only a respectable entertainment, but also a fashionable custom of London’s aristocratic society.
Enjoy tea with a piece of cake!
It is a little known fact, but after its introduction to Europe in the 17th century tea was also tremendously popular in France among the aristocracy.
Today it remains a lovely tradition for some people in the UK, although usually it’s just a simple cream tea or tea with a slice of cake or some biscuits instead of the original elegant, three-course service.
Versace Tea Sets
It is always a nice idea to tap into different customs of other cultures, especially when you can easily find all the necessary items in Versace Tea Cup Sets of various patterns and add a stunning splash of colour to an afternoon tea with friends while enjoying the beautiful tradition.
Let us create a perfect Versace tea set!
A properly set afternoon tea table setting should not be a daunting task. So, when you start laying your table for an afternoon tea, you should begin by presenting your sweet and savoury treats on the magnificent Versace Etagere Prestige Gala for example, proceed by placing Versace Prestige Gala small Plate 18 cm in the center of the setting in order to create the focus of your place setting. The smaller size plate is to oblige the smaller size tea foods.
What about the tea spoon?
To serve your favorite tea, you will need the right spoon. You can use a stainless steel Versace Greca spoon for your daily tea ceremony, or if you prefer a more precious spoon you can have it in silver plated, and if you are really demanding, there is a gold-plated version for you.
We also need cutlery for the cake
You need to place Versace Dessert Fork and Dessert Knife Medusa Silver or Gold Plated next to the plate and Versace Dessert Spoon Medusa Silver or Gold Plated as well. Next you place Versace Tea Cup and Saucer Prestige Gala to the right of the plate. Versace Teapot Prestige Gala is necessary of course and Versace Sugar Bowl Prestige Gala, Versace Creamer Prestige Gala and sugar tongs will be useful. And last but not least, some floral arrangements might be used to enhance the setting and give it a finishing touch, as every Versace Tea Set pattern offers a variety of vases as well, like Versace Prestige Gala Vase for instance.
Versace tea set with dessert plate
Each Versace pattern combines the dessert plate with the tea service. The dessert plates we prefer are round plates diameter 17 cm or 18 cm and are so beautiful that you almost regret putting on a piece of cake so as not to cover their fabulous decoration
Choose your favorite Versace tea set!
The tricky part of setting the table for an afternoon tea is the huge variety of Versace Tea Set patterns. There is the tempestuous character of Versace Barocco Mosaic with its bright colours; and the oriental temper of Versace Les Reves Byzantins with its gorgeous rose golden patterns; there is the hypnotic Versace Vanity with its opulent mix of gold and dark blue; there is the smooth and overnice Versace Médaillon Méandre d’or with its elegant tenderness of white and gold; and many more. And it’s only up to you to decide whether you’ll enjoy your tea time posh style of Versace Jungle Animalier or Versace Vanity for example, or you’d rather serve your guests a sumptuous, elegant meal in a more relaxed, casual setting of Versace Medusa Gala.
