For a children's party with a difference, Betty Blythe Afternoon Tea parties are ideal
Offering dressing up accessories from the 1920s and 30s , afternoon tea with cakes and a great deal of pink and flowers, Betty Blythe is a popular choice for little girls who love to dress up and take part in a grown up Tea Party. Guests will arrive and make their way downstairs to the tea room where they will be greeted by the party host, a selection of party entertainments are available for guests.
Accompanying every child’s tea party is the wonderful opportunity for exploration into another era. The party guests can adorn themselves in pearls, gloves and fascinators and many other fashion treasures which can be worn to tea - not before a movie photo shoot on the chaise lounge where the group of new found starlets can practice their vintage Hollywood poses.
The Tea Party
The tables are set for tea! There will be teapots with hot chocolate, to be drunk from pretty cups.
The guests are invited to the table and given a delicate introduction to etiquette of Afternoon Tea and conversation, grace and decorum.
Napkins, plates and flowers adorn the table. Mini sandwiches will be served on stands - a selection of cheese, ham, jam and cucumber.
There will be a tempting array of pink wafer biscuits, popcorn and mini muffins.
Tea will finish with mini cupcakes or you may wish to upgrade to large fairy or chocolate cupcakes or a birthday cake made to your requirements.

What would it be like to be a chocolatier? In this activity we take a look at the wonderful world of chocolate and all its many possibilities. Looking at chocolate within the pantry shelves the group design the packaging for their brand of chocolates. Then on to the delicious bit!
