Whether your afternoon tea is prepared from scratch, store bought items, or a combination of the two, the key to any good party is a balanced menu.  The occasion need not be an expensive endeavor, provided all items are served fresh and presented in a style pleasing to the eye, your guests are certain to have a great time.  Do not be a tea snob, but regardless if the teas served are loose-leaf or from a tea bag, all tea must be decanted before pouring.
