Delicious afternoon tea without the hassle

Planning a sumptuous afternoon tea for a family treat or for a small group of friends is a lovely way to celebrate a special occasion however it does take a lot of preparation. It may be for this reason that some people choose to have their afternoon tea treat prepared and delivered by caterers.

In most areas there are catering companies or local cafes that offer afternoon tea at home and they can be easily found with a quick online search. It is a good idea to read the reviews that are usually posted regarding the quality of the food and level of service from these caterers to ensure you are pleased with the outcome.

Most afternoon tea menus include a selection of sandwiches, savouries such as quiche and sausage rolls, cakes and scones with fresh cream and a selection of different jams. If there are any people with allergies or intolerances most catering companies can provide gluten and dairy free alternatives which are equally delicious. You should expect homemade cakes and scones from a quality caterer and many also deliver homemade savoury dishes too. So, if you want a quintessential English treat without the hassle try afternoon tea at home prepared by a caterer.
