What to Serve for a November Afternoon Tea

As we transition into chillier days, my November Afternoon Tea menu also transitions to warmer flavors and heartier foods, celebrating a month of ample blessings.

Below, you will find recipe links and a sample menu for a fall-themed afternoon tea. While I’ve listed several ideas for three tea courses (savory, scone, and sweets), pair the menu down or add to it depending on your invited guests.

A good rule of thumb for serving an Easy Afternoon Tea is offering one to two types of scones, three savory options, and three sweet offerings, which will fill most tiered stands.

A November Afternoon Tea setting can be as simple as a collection of seasonal fruit, bundles of rustic wheat sheaves, warmly colored linens, twinkling votives, and the rustic charm of brown transferware like Spode’s Delamere Brown.

Savory Course

Begin your November Tea Party with a selection of savories. Here are some ideas:

Scones Course

A scones course is essential to teatime. I like to serve a simple, “plain” scone along with a seasonal offering, and for November, it almost has to be pumpkin.

Sweets Course

These seasonal ingredients are especially lovely during Thanksgiving.

May you have a beautiful month and enjoy teatime whenever possible!
