A High Tea to Celebrate your 70th Birthday

Jun 28, 2018

Rita contacted Event Affairs because she wanted to do something very special to celebrate her 70th birthday, and she needed a private event planner that could translate her wishes into reality.

The planning started with a formal sit-down lunch for 120 guests with a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party theme but as time went by, Rita decided she wanted something more relaxed and less formal. We suggested a lovely, abundant high tea with sweet and savoury. We suggested tea to be served throughout the afternoon as well as Bubbly and Wine for those looking for something other than tea.

Rita has always been involved with flowers and her own garden is evidence of this, loads and loads of white roses border her driveway, her garden is immaculate. Flowers were very important to her.

She also wanted performers on arrival so we brought in a Grand Piano for a Jazz Trio. The afternoon was filled with cake, tea, Bubbly, laughs, special speeches and lovely music. Everyone dressed up for the occasion and we think the Birthday Girl felt very special and loved.
