Thanks to the wonderful Elena Wittman of ArtofHats Studio here in Georgia, we have new tips about tea hat fashion to share with you. We know how popular this topic is because our “5 Elements of Afternoon Tea Fashion” page is the most visited on all of Destination Tea. It makes sense: afternoon tea is a 180-year-old tradition rooted in the upper classes, so we want to show up looking our best, avoiding any faux pas. That’s why we need the inside scoop on how to present ourselves properly at this elegant affair, and our new video has several tips and tricks to help you do just that, including:
- Terminology: the Tea Hat vs. Fascinator
- Styling Tips for Hair, Jewelry and Tea Hat Placement
- Firebelly Tea Tasting and Large Infuser Demo
We encourage you to seek out a local milliner to find that one-of-a-kind, handmade piece, for yourself or a tea friend. We want to see this art stay alive, and patronizing the creators is the best way to do it!
