High tea without the high price
High Tea without the high price.
High Tea is the "in" thing at the moment but the cost is outrageous. And the food may not be exactly what you want - especially if you or your friends are gluten intolerant.
The hardest part is getting the correct crockery but if you have none yourself, ask around. Lots of people have old china in a cupboard somewhere. To ensure a good time follow these simple suggestions:
If borrowing crockery take a photo before you begin so you can be sure to return items to the correct person.
Take photos of anything you borrow in groups according to who they belong to.
I love the idea of this, most people I know are too busy whizzing around, not enough hours in the day or working shifts and living in different time zones. Hopefully, I'll get a chance to try it out sometime. :)
