The Dorset based ethical tea company Clipper Teas are doing a series of very special afternoon tea parties and the next one will be hosted by Gardener's World and Chelsea Flower Show TV presenter Rachel de Thame.
In late October the style blogger Sacha Wilkins/Liberty London Girl held her party on a Regent's Canal barge and in January next year the top London florist Nikki Tibbles' tea party will be held in her own Notting Hill home.
The three ladies known for their stunning interiors, blossoming gardens, enviable style credentials and stunning floral flair will personally host the unique tea parties in pretty surroundings. They will also share their design and style secrets from food to flowers reflecting their expertise and inspiration.
Rachel's party will be held in the botanical heaven at Clifton Nurseries in London on the 28 November. A limited number of tickets are on sale for £25 each and 100% of the proceeds will go to the charity Contact the Elderly who are the only national charity solely dedicated to tackling loneliness and social isolation among the elderly through regular Sunday afternoon tea parties.
Clipper Teas contacted me and asked if I was interested in doing a blog post about Rachel's tea party and of course I was very happy to promote a charity helping the elderly.
I met Rachel fifteen years ago when we were both students at The English Gardening School based in Chelsea. A few years later I worked for her as a researcher on her book Top 100 Star Plants.
When I found out about that this lovely lady was hosting a tea Party at Cliftons Nurseries I didn't have to think twice about buying a ticket.
Have a very lovely day!
See you soon again!
