I ordered this Afternoon Tea Box for a friend who has and still is undergoing treatment as a surprise. The box was a great presentation and my friend and her daughter cannot praise the quality of food in it.
On my friend’s recommendation I have ordered another for another friend who has been self isolating for 12 months.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I ordered an afternoon tea for myself and my 8 year daughter as a little half term holiday treat and wow, it was amazing!! The food was fabulous and there was so much of it, the service was wonderful and the attention to detail was just the icing on the cake!! The sandwiches were made exactly as requested (for my picky eater daughter) and it was all packaged up with wooden cutlery, napkins and even a tea bag, in beautiful boxes tied with pretty pink ribbon! It was just such a lovely treat for both of us and we can’t thank Butterfly Garden enough. I’ve already recommended you to several friends who were all eager to find out about you when they saw the photos!! Thanks again!! :-)

Absolutely fantastic service from the first enquiry right through to the after service. The china package we hired for my daughters christening was amazing and was certainly better than expected. Would love to use butterfly garden tea parties again in the future.
