How to celebrate spring with the best afternoon tea ideas from hotels
It’s the cherry blossom season (or the “Sakura season in Japanese) season and the most luxurious hotels in the world offer stylish spring afternoon tea rituals. Get in the mood by organizing a spring tea party of your own in order to celebrate the coming of the most beautiful season of the year. This is the most optimistic way to step into the new season when the bare branches of trees get fully covered in beautiful blooms.
Let’s take a tour to some of the best hotel tea rooms and draw inspiration from them.
Spring Afternoon Tea Idea no 1: To begin with…
Think cherry blossoms, strawberries, champagne and of course tea! Just add miniature pastries and iced fairy cakes, tiny sandwiches and scones, delicate teacups and vintage teapots.
Spring Afternoon Tea Idea no 2: Colour paletting!
The cherry blossom flower and other spring botanical images should be the inspiration of your theme. Therefore, go for a pink-themed decoration but make sure you pick a pale and a bit dusty hue. Matcha green, light blue and elegant creamy tones are the best choices to accompany your setting!
Spring Afternoon Tea Idea no 3: The art de la table
Elegant linen tablecloths and vintage romantic china with floral details are all key elements for your spring tea party. Don’t forget a cake stand with retro adornments, where you are going to place your bite-size sandwiches and pastries!
