Three kitchen tea ideas to make the bride blush with happiness

If you’re planning a kitchen tea with a few other women or bridesmaids, the best thing to do is to come up with a theme you all agree on and work around that. Here are three distinct ideas that will provide a wonderful, relaxed atmosphere and opportunities for the special women in the bride’s life to get to know each other.

High tea happiness

Falling in line with the name, the tradition of sitting and sipping on tea while sampling the best cakes and pastries is always a welcomed idea. This is a particularly good idea for the older relatives of the bride, who will be able to enjoy a calm and comfortable day. You can opt to have the high tea at home or save organisational admin by holding it at one of the following venues:

  • Table Bay Hotel
  • The Mount Nelson
  • The Twelve Apostles Hotel
  • The One And Only
  • The Cape Grace Hotel.

If you choose to have it at a private venue, contact Highty Tighty for catering needs.

Wine tasting in the valley

Franschhoek has become incredibly popular for wine tasting adventures that are convenient for big groups. By taking the wine tram, you are allowed to hop on and hop off, as it takes you through the beautiful, vineyard-filled valley. You have the option of four different tours, each with its own wine estates on the itinerary.

After you have tasted some of the best South African wine in the country, you and your party can sit down to a hearty lunch at any one of the famous restaurants on the Main Road.

Beach house bonding  

If you’re a medium-sized group and want to forgo the traditional kitchen tea or bachelorette’s, a night away by the coast is just the ticket. The bride will appreciate the down time before her big day and the luxury of having a beach house means there’s more time for getting to know one another without any real pressure. Make sure to pack games like 30 Seconds or Cards Against Humanity, which pair well with glasses of wine!
