High Tea Series: an Easter Sunday invite to The Secret Garden
14 Comments Karen HamiltonApril 2, 2009
It’s true: high tea is not the same as afternoon tea. Despite its name, this series explores afternoon tea: scones, cream, dainties, pretty cups, florals, hats. The terms are used interchangeably in the text below. Sorry, tea aficionados.
May I make it up to you by inviting you to tea at 2pm on Sunday, April 12, 2009? We’ll make it an Easter fête at my next afternoon tea target: the The Secret Garden.
The Secret Garden Tea Company
5559 West Boulevard | Kerrisdale
The Tiny Bites table can now accommodate up to 25 people; the trade-off is that we’ve been re-seated at the back of the house. Here’s the current guest list:
- Lorraine + 1
- and yours truly.
Join us for tea – we have room for 25 now!
Update, April 10th: Due to last-minute RSVPs that would be difficult to split into 2 tables, I’ve updated the reservation to a section in the back of the Secret Garden. Our section can now accommodate a large party (up to 25). Yippee!
Frequently asked questions
How much is afternoon tea at Secret Garden?
High Tea will come to $31.66 per person (tax and tip included).
I also hear they’re doing a special Mother’s Day High Tea for ~$35 in May.
I’d like to come – how do I confirm my seat?
Leave a comment with your RSVP on this post (below).
When’s the latest I can RSVP by?
Please leave your RSVP via comment by noon on Saturday, April 11, 2009. Secret Garden needs to prep in advance for your arrival so I’ll be calling them with final numbers before they close on Saturday.
I’m not sure I can make it to Secret Garden by 2pm. Is that a problem? Can I come later?
Secret Garden has 3 sittings: noon, 2pm, and 4pm. Since we pretty much need to be out by the time the 4pm sitting begins, everyone in our party should strive to be at Secret Garden for 2pm sharp.
What should I wear?!
Ah, the all-important question. Go with anything you deem fun for an Easter tea party. I’m leaning towards springtime dress with hat and heels. But I’m girly like that.
Our table is now 12 strong but there’s room for plenty more. Drop a comment as your RSVP and see you on Sunday. Can’t wait, all!
