Afternoon tea is the perfect way to enjoy quality time with your family and close friends or for entertaining business clients. Both men and women enjoy afternoon tea in England, so why not enjoy this ageless tradition yourself?
One Sunday each month we offer a themed Afternoon Tea service from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. These Afternoon teas, along with all our private parties such as bridal showers, baby showers, and holiday parties take place at “Gatherings,” 29 Mont Vernon St., Milford, NH. This beautiful Colonial home is the perfect setting for our events, and allows us to cater to larger parties of up to 75 people.
These events include a wide variety of quality imported teas and delicious tea sandwiches, breads, and desserts. The tea service features trained servers and our porcelain teapots and china, linens, and silver. Our selection of Themed Afternoon Tea Menus can be found below. Our Afternoon Teas are available by reservation only and fill up very quickly so call early to reserve your space! The dates for all of our Afternoon Teas can be found on our Events page.
In each country, tea is served in its own unique way, but it is always served with the intention of taking time to enjoy your friends and loved ones. An Afternoon Tea is suitable for many celebrations! In addition to our monthly Afternoon Tea functions we are also available for private events. You can choose from our selection of Afternoon Tea Menus for your function.
