Afternoon Tea Week 2018

Afternoon Tea Week 2018


At Breeze House, we are all for embracing traditions as well as celebrating everything new and emerging in the world of leisure, gardening, construction and more. But, it’s safe to say that there is one tradition that can truly be appreciated and enjoyed to it’s full potential in your Breeze House – the great British pastime of afternoon tea.

And as luck would have it, it’s actually Afternoon Tea week next week!

Sometimes, waiting for dinner can seem like a drawn-out experience and lunchtime seems to have long gone. And it’s moments like these that a warm pot of tea and some delicious light sandwiches can really make your afternoon seem that extra bit special, whatever the occasion. Although, of course, there’s no need for an occasion at all! It’s all about adding a bit of elegance and great British grace to an otherwise standard afternoon.

Afternoon tea itself began in the 1840s and soon became a staple in high society, particularly when Queen Victoria herself began enjoying the pastime. It was at this point that the ‘tea reception’ was born, whereby lavish spreads and quaint cups of tea were enjoyed by the great and the good of society.

However, the great thing about afternoon tea these days is that there doesn’t need to be an over-the-top grandeur to the occasion, but it can add a sense of fun and stylishness to what would otherwise just be an average afternoon with a brew.

And your Breeze House provides the perfect location for just that; with comfortable seating and a delightful view of the garden, whatever the weather.

So, if you’re planning on catching up with friends this week or you need ideas for your next get-together with family, make it a fabulous afternoon tea in your Breeze House! Cupcakes, pastries, sandwiches and tea, all in the comfort of your Breeze House.

Simply wonderful.
