Getting everything for an afternoon tea party prepared and looking just how you want it doesn’t have to be stressful. Choosing the best tea sets, selecting the most delicious teas and laying the table in a style that shows off your own individual tastes can be as simple as selecting your favourite teaware patterns. We’ve put together this handy tea guide so you can paint your table with colours and patterns.
When buying a new tea set, it’s best to decide what items you want to buy to create the look you love. Creating your own unique afternoon tea style is easy, just mix and match patterns from collections you like and you’ll have a style that is all your own.

The best way to make your afternoon tea party that little bit extra special is to serve your tea blend of choice from a teapot. Brewing your tea in a large, colourful teapot and serving your guests will add that focal point to your afternoon tea setup.
Top tip: Want to put that finishing touch to your afternoon tea setting? Sugar bowls and milk jugs can really set off your table with a flourish. The Gio Sugar Bowl and Milk / Cream Jug provides a beautifully simple textured addition to your teaware.
