Baby Shower High Tea Afternoon

When we think of baby shower ideas, we think instantly of high tea’s ... they really do go hand in hand! 

At Yarra Valley Lodge our High Tea is the perfect baby shower celebration. The hotel is set among the rolling hills of Yarra Valley so a stunning setting for a truly special occasion.

There is something delightfully decadent about putting on a floral frock, some kitten heels and heading out with your girlfriends, mother's and/or sister's to celebrate the arrival of a new baby. Enjoying a few hours with your friends over a classic tiered stands full to the brim with darling and deliciously mini finger sandwiches, a rainbow assortment of miniature cakes and tarts, plus of course let’s not forget the bubbles and cuppa’s to go with!

We are talking, of course, about the High Tea – it’s a synonymous with decadence. Originally enjoyed in the evening at the “high” or kitchen table (usually between 3 and 4pm), the well-loved high tea has been around since the 1700’s and after a recent resurgence is still going strong. As is our desire to put aside our take away coffees and fast-paced lifestyles so we can delight in this quiet, sophisticated ritual.

Nibbling delicacies from three-tiered stands and chatting inconsequetial matters, or perhaps it is the fragrance of the different types of teas drifting from delicate porcelain tea cups. Whatever it is, the experience is lovely and definitely a great way to spend any time out with your friends.

Every mother-to-be deserves to be treated like royalty at her baby shower. It’s a time to be spoilt by your friends and family, as welcoming a child into your family is an everlasting change. Every girl loves a high tea, and a baby shower is the perfect excuse to organise one.

A high tea baby shower at the Yarra Valley Lodge will help to prepare your mum-to-be and her friends have the perfect day in a true traditional setting. We have lots of games and ideas for baby shower's and we can also arrange for our events coordinator to help you plan the big day (especially if it is a surprise!).
