Afternoon Tea Stand Designs For Ritz-Carlton Toronto
Tea service at Ritz-Carlton has created quite a buzz. Glass Studio took a part in creating an attractive afternoon tea presentation with a collection of afternoon tea stand designs.
The tradition of Afternoon Tea – a midday refreshment, complete with small cakes, assorted sweets, bread and butter sandwiches, and fine tea – remains relatively unchanged since its origin in the 19th century. Some credit the Duchess of Bedford (1783-1857), a lady in waiting of Queen Victoria, as the one who introduced the ritual of Afternoon Tea to London, by inviting friends to join her for “tea and a walking in the fields”. This delightfully social and gourmand pastime sparked a trend that has continued to this day. People at Ritz-Carlton Toronto love the afternoon tea tradition and give guests a chance to walk in the shoes of the Duchess of Bedford and friends at DEQ Terrace and Lounge.
Glass Studio tableware designer Maria worked with the hotel team to create a beautiful display of savoury and sweet delights. A collection of Glass Studio afternoon tea stand designs was employed to make sure guests feel like royalty while enjoying their afternoon tea in the beautiful interior.
