Learn to play with your food (correctly) with Miss Sue Flay
Miss Sue Flay, will help you to understand the importance of manners at one of our most beloved mealtimes and most English traditions within a fun and relaxed environment of her or your choice. In a world full of technology and impatience, it’s nice to sit down for an hour or two and remember how important manners are to the people around you… and throwing in a delicious afternoon tea wouldn’t hurt either, right?!
This is your chance to play with your food and learn a few historical eating facts as you throw your food around and make for a memorable celebration or event. It’s your time to be like Marie Antoinette or a modern day Duchess of Bedfordshire, learning to walk the walk, talk the talk and live the high life for an hour or two!
Perfect for a birthday, hen party, “ladies what do lunch” gathering or a general event or celebration, the sky is the limit!
You can now book a private afternoon tea etiquette session directly with Miss Sue Flay held either at in the hometown of your hostess (Cambridge) or a location of your choosing.
Your afternoon tea includes/suggests a selection of delicate finger sandwiches, scones, cakes & sweet treats and, of course, copious amounts of top quality tea as we converse. If you want to get rowdy, then it’s highly suggested that you throw in some bubbly to the mix and let your hair down…
