How to Throw a Fun Afternoon Tea Party—with a Twist

A more fun, less fancy version of afternoon tea.

Brunch doesn’t just have to be stacks of pancakes and eggs benedict. No disrespect to the classic in-betweener meal, but our new favorite way to entertain friends and family is with afternoon tea. But this is not your fancy, pinkies-out, classic British afternoon tea. Our version, inspired by Chrissy’s recent tea party, has flavor influences from all around the world, including Thai-ish tea sandwiches, a quick-and-easy version of Mexican horchata, and loaded baked potato egg bites inspired by Spanish Tortilla Española…made with potato chips! Plus a spring-y floral tea you will want to drink for cozy time, anytime. Check out our full tea-party-with-a-twist menu below.

This hardworking pitcher is easy on the eyes, and an elegant addition to any dinner party spread. The textured peachy-colored glass catches candlelight beautifully, but don't pull it out just for parties—this piece can be used every day for water, OJ, or whatever's on the daily drink menu.

Mini Rectangular Cutting Board

We gave the classic cutting board a genius upgrade: two handles that make it easy to transport when it's piled high with pizza bites or chicken wings. Made from all-natural teak wood, this stain resistant piece works for prep and serving, and will age beautifully.

Spill The Tea Robe

Chrissy has been all about dressing for joy—and comfort—lately, so we brought the two together in a stunning silky robe in a Spring-forward, brightly hued botanical print. Finished with fancy lilac piping, the three-quarter length sleeves make doing stuff in style easy, and the attached sash won't get lost in the laundry pile. Style yours over the PJ set for a luxe, laid-back look.
