Get This Look: Afternoon Tea Table Setting

An elegant afternoon tea complete with delicate finger sandwiches, petite cakes, dollops of cream, chocolate-covered strawberries and fine herbal teas must have the proper setting, so be sure to host this event in a room with plentiful natural light. This is the time to use your best china, silver and linen. Pretty roses in hushed tones should be in abundant supply, so that you can send each guest home with a token of appreciation.
