My girlfriend treated me to high-tea for my birthday last week and it was soooo good! We visited Tracy Cakes in Murrayville and to say the food was delicious is an understatement. We were offered a two-tier stand of treats: an assortment of sandwiches on the bottom and dessert pastries and scones on top. The pineapple scones were my favorite paired with a cream and jam spread.
We had a lot of fun dressing up for the occasion. The key to dressing for high-tea is to look and feel classy and lady-like. You don't even need to spend an arm and a leg to accomplish this! I've had this vintage pill box hat for quite a while and was waiting for an excuse to wear it. Sometimes you can pick up hats at garage sales, vintage markets, or flea markets. A lot of accessory stores are now selling facinators and other hair accessories that would be fitting for high tea.
I wore a simple dress paired with my classic rockstud Valentinos to complete the look. Floral dresses are also very fitting for high-tea. To read a previous post where I hosted a high-tea party click here, here and here for more fashion inspiration.
