MB HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, May 8, 2012 3 HIGH-TEA FUN WAY TO ENTERTAIN WIDE RANGE OF TEA SETS TO CHOOSE FROM Susan Redman Set the table with a pretty tea set such as this Laura Ashley Elveden tea set. GENERATION Y may enjoy taking high-tea at swanky ho- tels, but are they missing out on the gentle art of serving tea at home? It's true that a quick vox pop of our youngest staff members in this office elicits the ques- tion: why bother? Gen Y-ers say there's just too much fuss, too much to prepare and, besides, there's rarely a cake plate in the house. But for the cost of a few high- teas out on the town, some exquisite tea sets can be pur- chased. And when there are so many beautiful tea sets around to choose from, it really is a super fun way to entertain at home for any generation. A new high-tea collection, Taste from Davis & Waddell, is a pretty and feminine range of serving ware that looks like it's straight off the set of a Mad Men episode, which is sure to appeal to Gen Ys, X-ers and Baby Boomers alike. The tea sets are available in pastel shades of musk, lilac, mint and lemon and are trim- med in metallic silver polka dots. The Tea for One set stacks a teapot on a cup. Very cute. Villeroy & Boch offers a new range of fine bone china called Authentic Avantgarde, which features a powerful geometric pattern duplicating the design on Mettlach tiles. These tiles were produced in Germany dur- ing the 19th and 20th centuries. The china collection includes cups, saucers and serve-ware plates and is cast in four intense colour themes -- all with per- fectly flamboyant names for a sophisticated high tea. Less grandiose but still a lovely way to style an afternoon tea is using mix-and-match cups and saucers from your own cupboards. Top your teapots with these winter kettle warmers and co- sies from Robert Gordon to create a modest but quirky looking table setting.
