afternoon tea too bougie for ya?
Then make it a Tipsy Tea Time!
Dreaming of being all dressed up with some (safe) place to go? Little Coterie, Goodie Rentals and Your Butler’s Pantry have joined creative forces to deliver!
Tipsy Tea Time – their new collaborative offering – invites you and your besties to momentarily toss off your Covid worries and embrace a traditional British afternoon tea with a bit of Texas cheek. “Now is the perfect time to try something new and different – something that creates a positive memory during these crazy times. We are in the business of bringing joy to people, whatever the scale may be,” says Courtney Paddock, owner of Little Coterie and co-founder of Goodie Rentals.
With three packages to chose from, you’ll find a look to suit your style. “I drew on my experiences living in England to transport you to the heart of London or deep into the British countryside,” says Elizabeth Whitehead, owner of Your Butler’s Pantry. “The colors and attitudes are as diverse as the country itself.”
Available for gatherings of 2, 4 or 6, starting at $625, the Tipsy Tea Time packages offer high style, turn-key, luxury entertaining. “The packages include everything from the placesettings and serving pieces to the food and drink. All you’ll need to do is pick a date, brew the tea and chill the bubbly. We can do the rest. Delivery, set up and pick up is on us,” says Karen Johnson, co-founder of Goodie Rentals.
If you want to take your Tipsy Tea to the next level, add-ons like pom pom festooned sun umbrellas are available. Paddock encourages clients to think big even for small events. “Wow-factor pieces like bar carts, fun umbrellas and other things that delight guests are en vogue, especially while we cannot gather in large crowds due to the virus. We need everything we can get our hands on to bring a smile to our faces these days,” says Paddock.
Whitehead whole-heartedly agrees. “This isn’t about being fussy or overly fancy. It’s about creating a beautiful atmosphere to make memories and share some laughs during this very difficult time,” she says.
In the age of Covid, we have to have to create our own fun and do it responsibly. Hosting a Tipsy Tea just may be your answer to creating a vibrant (CDC friendly) gathering with friends. Chin, chin, Houston!
Proper as a country estate but quite the opposite of stuffy, the Surrey package invites you to sip and socialize in an English garden. If you get a wee sloshed, there’s no shame in it!
As cosmopolitan as its namesake with some Indian spice, the London package let’s you be posh AND fun. It’s guaranteed to be an absobloodylutely good time!
Charming, playful and collected, The Cotswalds package takes you for a boozy, vintage spin around the English countryside. And if you get a little cheeky whilst you sip, we’ll like ya more!
