From table settings to food and drinks to aromas, savvy party planners know that success is all about the tiny details. This year, we encourage our tea lovers everywhere to start a new tradition: set your table with the unique elements of tea!
Setting the Table
Everyone knows that the table is ‘the heart of the holidays.’ It is the place where family and friends make lifelong memories gathering for great food and great conversation.
Preparing an elegant table setting is essential when entertaining guests, so first make sure to captivate your audience with a uniquely elegant teapot or tea set centerpiece. Allow it to inspire the surrounding elements so that your guests can admire a beautiful presentation while participating in a centuries old tradition.
Consider building from the pop of color that the Fuku Gold Teapot provides. Pair it with a tea serving tray, Minami Cast Iron Tea Cups and cast iron accessories to make the setting complete!
The taste of the holiday is filled with flavors of sweet and spicy. Cinnamon, chocolate, mint and nutmeg all come to mind. Immerse your guests into the tea culture with teas that unfold tradition and evoke sensory details of holiday.
Captivate your guest’s palates with the traditional flavors of chai. Pair your hearty holiday meals with teas like Maharaja Chai Oolong Tea, Samurai Chai Mate Tea or White Ayurvedic Chai Tea. Add in the seasonal elements of chocolate and mint with White Chocolate Peppermint Rooibos Tea. The flavors blend together to create a complex cup reminiscent of hot chocolate with cooling mint.
Scented candles complete the mood as the theme of all things sweet and spicy spills over into the warm and flickering candlelight we place around the table. From the Maharaja Chai Tea Candle to the Moroccan Mint Tea Candle, your home is sure to radiate all the joyful scents of the holiday.
Set the table in style this year with all the sophisticated elements your very own tea tradition provides. Find even more holiday hosting inspiration with us on Pinterest! Cheers!
