A tea party with a twist!
The words “tea party” might conjure up the idea of stuffy women’s-only gatherings and tiny cucumber sandwiches. That won’t be the case at the first Sweets and Tea Party Festival June 11 at 3 p.m. Co-founded by Jeff Tago of the Tago Event Center on the westside, the co-ed, tea-tastic event at a private lakefront residence in Buckhead will feature a variety of teas and other beverages, indulgent desserts, live entertainment, luxury giveaways and on-site pampering opportunities such as manicures, makeovers and massages.
Tago says he wanted to create a new event focusing on creative foods and drinks. “Most tea parties offer mainly tea and sandwiches, but we are going all out with the sweets— desserts, pastries, anything that is a sugar aficionado’s best friend.”
Tickets start at $150 per person. VIP tickets start at $300 and offer perks such as limo rides, private tents and unlimited food and cocktails. Once you buy a ticket, you’ll receive a packet with the address of the event and the party details.
