Hello , my name is Susan Asher, and I am a tea party hostess and owner of Thyme-out Tea Parties. I will go to your home and create an elegant, relaxing English tea for you and your guests. I serve Quincy, Illinois and nearby communities.

Your cost includes tasty tea party foods, beautiful table settings, linen napkins, background music and silk flower arrangements. I prepare all the food in your home or at the party location. A typical tea party menu includes two blends of tea, scones, three types of tea sandwiches and desserts. Just supply the guests and I'll do the rest!

Teas are perfect for celebrating life's milestones and creating a special memory. Consider a tea party for birthdays, bridal or baby showers, mother and daughter teas, church and social groups, graduations, business meetings, and holidays.
