High Tea

A collaboration between The China Cabinet Vintage China Hire and  The Sauce Kitchen Caterers to deliver an elegant afternoon tea in your own venue. More than a food delivery, this is an experience.

Your tables will be set with white lace tablecloths, English fine china tiered cake stands, serving plates, milk jugs & sugar bowls, along with sugar lumps & silver sugar tongs. Each guest will be provided with one of our prettiest china trios (teacup, saucer & side plate) a silver cake fork, teaspoon & white napkin.

Our friendly professional staff will be there to serve you and your guests tea from gorgeous English china teapots and coffee from elegant silver coffee pots. Each guest will enjoy 7 delicious items from the menu below. At the conclusion of the event we will take everything away, so there is no cleaning up for you. If you'd prefer to serve your guests yourself, we are happy to discuss delivery only options.
