Ellen Easton shares with us her table settings and menu to plan a theme for a Winter White Afternoon Tea.
Per Ellen Easton, “A winter white afternoon tea is a welcoming way to celebrate the New Year. Whether a quiet moment to savor the day or virtual zooming with friends and family until such time gathering together in person is once again safe. May all of your afternoons be filled with tea and friendship.”

Theme teas are not traditional teatime events, thus allowing one to “break the rules”. When creating a white theme tea menu by all means do add in alternate flavors to enhance the base of the basic whites you have chosen. Decorating with a small white floral vignette is a lovely touch for your tea tray or table.
