Thank Her Grace the Duchess of Bedford for starting the afternoon tea craze in the late 18th century and His Lordship, the profligate Earl of Sandwich, being unable to leave the gaming table, for inadvertently allowing us to devise this relaxing way of making refined merriment suitable for bridal and baby showers, Christenings and any occasion where people want to celebrate informally earlier in the day with the delicate traditions of finger sandwiches, sweet dainties, Champagne perhaps and of course, tea.
