BYOB Holiday High Tea Party
DESCRIPTION Art Room Events introduces an elegant way to celebrate the holidays with friends and family! Enjoy this unique experience in Bru's cozy vintage art space with the screening of one of your favorite Christmas movies. What is High Tea? The drinking of tea not only became a social event for the upper classes, it altered the time and manner in which they took tea. Afternoon Tea became the bridge between meals because many wouldn't eat their evening meal until maybe 8pm. As such, Afternoon Tea became a 'mini meal' in itself. Why is it called 'high tea'? A possible explanation why this type of meal was called high tea is the fact that it was eaten at a table. In comparison, Afternoon Tea was taken whilst seating in low, comfortable chairs or sofas. Of course, soon after, the upper classes developed their own variation and also called it 'high tea'. It was a meal that could be eaten when their servants were away or not available, as it was so easy to prepare. The upper class 'high tea' involved the amalgamation of Afternoon Tea and high tea, with the addition of pigeon, veal, salmon and fruit. Can not promise pigeons, but you will truly enjoy our selection of delicious desserts and mini sandwiches, try variety of teas, and can even bring in your own bubbles.
