Looking for an Authentic High Tea Experience?
High tea is a special event and far from an everyday occurrence. It is not only about the menu but the ambiance and location of the event. This is why some high tea experiences fall short. The location is underwhelming and out of character with the style of a high tea. A modern hotel may have the food, but not the china, décor or settings.

Ayers House has come to the rescue with a short series of high tea events in association with the Miss Fisher's Costume exhibition. These events are catered by Ayers House Weddings & Events within the most beautiful formal dining room. Ayers House has the perfect ambiance, with high ceilings and large windows surrounded with palms and tables set for the jazz age. Throughout the high tea and experience Miss Fisher exhibition it felt like I had stepped into a real life version of the game Cluedo. It was Colonel Mustard in the dining room with the candlestick.

This high tea menu has delicious savoury sandwiches, my favourite being the egg, mayonnaise and watercress, all cut with precision and no crusts. No high tea is complete without scones, jam and cream. Here there is the delightful addition of sweet lemon curd. The sweets include mini éclairs with chocolate cream, macarons and berry pannacottas.

Guests are greeted on arrival with a glass of Wicks Estate bubbly or orange juice. The high tea also includes your exhibition entry pass. I recommend you see the exhibition first, as after the high tea you will feel so contented it will be hard to concentrate on a full tour of the exhibition. The high tea and exhibition entry cost combined is $75 per person.

Miss Fisher Costume Exhibition
Miss Fisher Costume Exhibition is a tribute to the jazz age. The era is brought to life within this charming television program but really enriched by the stunning costumes. These have been lovingly researched and created. There is even a dress up room to get glammed up in. It is a real treat as I so wanted to drape myself in some of these gorgeous clothes of yesteryear. The exhibition is showing in Adelaide until 14 February 2016, before travelling to Sydney.
