This company will have you thinking you just stepped into a scene from a magazine or are getting ready to have afternoon tea with the Queen herself! I attended an event she coordinated with a couple of my friends and we had a blast! The food, tea, décor, and ambiance were amazing! I'm already thinking about an excuse to host an afternoon tea so I can relive the experience. This is a great option for birthday parties, baby showers, socials, or any gathering!
Delightful food and service at my best friend’s baby shower. I would definitely recommend to anyone and try it again myself in the future!
I worked with Kiarra on a baby shower for a friend and it turned out amazing! All of her suggestions were great! She was accommodating to all of our needs and pointed us in the right direction for other things we needed! Absolutely would love to work with her again! Highly recommend!!

Meet the Owner
Like most people - a new hobby emerged during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Kiarra was someone who had been obsessed with historical British culture and historical fiction books and television shows since her teenage years. During the pandemic, a phenomenon emerged on Netflix -- Bridgerton. Like millions of others, Kiarra caught Bridgerton fever. Along with binge watching (for the hundredth time) The Crown and Bridgerton, Kiarra became newly fascinated with afternoon tea. She found a local hotel in Greensboro, NC that had daily afternoon tea. She quickly fell in love with the practice and went often.
She shared her love with her husband and friends by inviting them to tag along.
Now in Dallas, Kiarra began exploring the afternoon tea scene and making classic recipes herself. At five months pregnant, she decided to plan her own baby shower -- an afternoon tea party! From securing rentals, to catering, to design -- Kiarra conquered it all! After getting praise that it was the best baby shower her guests ever attended, she decided to step out on faith and start her own vintage tea party rental and tea party events company to share her love of event planning, afternoon tea & to serve the DFW metroplex & beyond!
