I’d never heard of kitchen tea before.
It’s kind of like an afternoon tea and a bridal shower all mixed together. It’s tradition for guests to bring a gift relating to the kitchen, to help her set up the kitchen in the marital home.
We had it at my brother and sister-in-law’s house and the set up was too adorable. If I ever end up getting married, I’m 100% going to have a kitchen tea like this.
We had the most amazing punch, made with vodka, raspberry, and sparkling pink wine. It tasted like pop and I had way too many!
The food was lovely – sushi, sandwiches, wraps, macaroons, cake.
My niece got some adorable gifts. A couple of teapots and also hampers of kitchen products and food in a washing basket. Glasses, mugs, bowls, tea towels – all the practical stuff you need. Handy as she’s just moved in with her husband!
Have you been to a kitchen tea before?
