Little High Tea!
I know a lot of littles who like tea parties. Well High Tea is like a tea party but even more awesome. Have High Tea with other little friends, your caregiver or your stuffies!
Here’s what you need:
- A couple of tea pots and cups for everyone (having multiple tea pots means more than one type of tea!)
- Plates for treats
- Sweets and savory treats
- Decorations (optional, you can use a pretty tea cloth, have a colour theme, balloons, whatever you want)
- 3 tiered cake stand (optional)
Traditionally High Tea mixes sweet and savory foods. The treats are served on a 3 tiered cake stand but you don’t need to have one of those, just serve the different foods any way you want!
First tier: Scones. Have whipped cream and jam to serve with these. Here’s a couple of scone recipes.
Second tier: Sandwiches. Traditional sandwiches are watercress and cucumber but you can make whatever you want! Cut off the crusts for the authentic touch (finally a valid reason for littles to cut off their crusts haha). Here’s some ideas.

Third tier: Sweets. Now we get to the best part. You can have whatever sweets you want on here, the rule is though that they’re small enough to be a few mouthfuls and they’re easy to eat. You can have mini cupcakes, tartlets, lamingtons. Go nuts! Here’s some suggestions.
Hope this helps put together a lovely little High Tea. Enjoy!
