Bridgerton has captivated our hearts and taken over our TV screens and we have found ourselves wanting to emulate the world of Regency-era London into our daily lives. One such tradition that is seen throughout the series is afternoon tea and if you want to live your best Bridgerton life, here’s how to have your very own worthy of Lady Whistledown’s approval.

Tea

Traditionally, the teas used for high tea are caffeinated ones like Early Grey or herbal ones like chamomile. Make sure you pick a high-quality tea.

Menu

Serve some sweet and savory bites like tea sandwiches, cookies, and scones.

Tea Set

High tea isn’t complete without a pretty vintage-style tea set with a pot, cups, saucers, and sugar and milk containers.

3-Tiered Serving Stand

You’ll need a 3-tiered sandwich and cookie tray to hold all of your snacks. To stick to tradition, put your scones and breads on the top tier, sandwiches on the second tier, and sweets on the bottom.

Lace Tablecloth & Napkins

A lace tablecloth or runner sets an elegant tone and it protects your table from spills and crumbs. You’ll also need lace napkins to make the setting more regal.
