Afternoon Tea is the great British tradition it is because it allows people to get together, catch up, share stories, and enjoy each other’s company.


13th August 2018 marks the beginning of this year’s Afternoon Tea Week. Venues up and down the country will be putting on events and celebrating this fine tradition in style.

People up and down the country may be planning a visit to an Afternoon Tea event or throwing an event of your own. Either way – what a great excuse to get the chinaware and cutlery out!


Having delicious teas and tasty treats are of course what this week is all about. But you can’t enjoy great Afternoon Tea without furniture to enjoy it on.


That’s why to cater for Afternoon Tea events both during this national week of celebration and moving forwards, it’s a good idea to stock up on ornate, beautifully-crafted furniture and home décor to help make sure your customer’s events are a success.


Afternoon Tea Fundamentals


From a furniture perspective, ask yourself what your customers want when it comes to hosting a great Afternoon Tea event. They want something perfect for the occasion, but they also appreciate having excellent items in their home moving forwards.


Coffee tables are a given when it comes to Afternoon Tea, providing the perfect point to gather around and enjoy delightful items over. CIMC stocks a wide range of coffee tables in a host of different styles. 


Our Calley Wood coffee tables come in large and small sizes and have an edgy, traditional style, while our Noah and Willow Chrome coffee tables have recently been added to the CIMC range and provide a sleek take on the traditional coffee table.


Another stylish option is the Lorentz Rose coffee tables we have in our range. With a high-quality metal and smoked glass shine, these stand out in living rooms and look truly fantastic. We have rectangular Gold and Steel options, as well as a round Gold variety.


Another fundamental is a chair in which to enjoy a cup of tea and a snack or two. At CIMC, we stock an assortment of highly stylised, modern chairs that can not only provide a practical use but really help create a true sense of elegance in a room.


Bring the treats out!

No Afternoon Tea is complete without a slice of cake, a scone or another tasty treat. At CIMC, we stock beautiful cake plates within our giftware collection, including tiered cake stands and cake domes.

We also stock ornate serving trays that are the perfect way to bring out drinks and treats during an Afternoon Tea event.
