I made and packed over 60 Afternoon Teas boxes in June. I hit the right month to launch them, the weather was great and Father's Day was coming up. I was showcased on a local Instagram page (Wormley & Turnford Big Local) and a couple of customers had ordered early Afternoon Tea's and had posted great pictures of them. It all added up to a perfect storm of me working all day every day for a couple of weeks. I am not complaining and it was unsustainable!
Each person gets their own Afternoon Tea box, there are sandwiches, small bites, a scone with jam and cream and 4 mini desserts. You get to try so much and if you don't like something (which hasn't happened yet!) there's more to eat.
The dietary requirements nearly drove my brain into despair. I am thrilled I can offer this service, and when you have more than one per order it does take some organising of the order to prepare things in. Am getting used to it, although I had never come across a pork free request before, of course I knew it existed, and I had 2 in the same week.
The only issue we have is that my family get a bit annoyed when being told the pool table is out of action as I need it to set up my boxes! I need the space!
It's gone quieter this month with lots of smaller orders which is great for getting my name out there. I do really enjoy the bigger orders with the same thing being repeated, it does make life slightly easier!
I hope your July is going well.
