Rosemary Hill hosts authentic tea parties, specialising in bridal showers, baby showers and birthdays. Treats are individually made by our passionate pastry team and beautifully presented on three-tier cake stands. Tables are elegantly laid with beautiful floral design crockery, fresh flowers, damask tablecloths, and finished off with your choice of overlay or runner. Make yourself at home, try on an old hat and in these moments of contemplation and celebration, spend teatime treasuring family and friends. Your tea party can be hosted in the venue of your choice (subject to availability).
