"We had a wonderful time for my Mums 80th Birthday Afternoon Tea. 65 guests sat down to a superb spread, everyone said the food was very well presented, excellent quality and just the right quantity. The cakes were yummy! The crockery was loved by all.The service was very friendly, the servers very helpful, attentive, chatty and we were not rushed. Nothing was too much trouble. They looked after Mum wonderfully too. It helped make her day perfect.
I would recommend Time for Tea Parties wholeheartedly and know they would do you proud just like they did us.

Wendy and her team at Time for Tea Parties did a great job for my afternoon tea baby shower. They were prompt and professional and the decor really set the scene for a beautiful day. It was made very easy for me as they set everything out and then collect it at the end of the day. The team even went so far as a gift of a baby boy poem in a frame that has pride of place in the nursery! A big thank you to all of you, I will definitely recommend you guys to everyone! Sarah
