Afternoon tea around the world is a celebratory affair.

Think fluffy finger sandwiches, delicately prepared pastries and flutes of Champagne — there’s really no other way we’d rather spend a languid afternoon.

The best part? Afternoon tea sets can now be delivered to your home, so that you can drown your worries in drinks without being judged by the passing wait staff. We recommend putting on some of your beautiful outfits to complete the experience and take photos with too — sans the pain of wearing heels of course.

Read on for the best afternoon tea sets you can order in Singapore to your home.

You might not be able to head to Tablescape for their refreshed Afternoon Tea set just yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try it out at home. While their scrumptious rosemary tart finds itself rooted in the menu, you can take your pick from new sweet treats like the rich mini Chocolate Eclairs and the Velvet Cheese Mousse.

As for your savouries, expect finger-sized egg mayo sandwiches elevated with black truffle, as well as the decadent Foie Gras, Nectarine and Pistachio Tartlet. Round up your meal with some coffee and Clipper 1872 tea.

This set is good for two persons, from 2 pm to 5 pm daily. There is a delivery fee of S$25, but diners who choose to indulge with the whole family at home with two or more sets will receive complimentary delivery to one location. There is a 10 percent discount for self-collection. One-day advance order is required for both takeaway and delivery.

Vanilla and rose-infused scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam — if that doesn’t scream a romantic afternoon, we don’t know what will.
