The event started with welcoming speech by two executives Waraporn 'Tah' Siriboonma, Managing Director of Burda (Thailand) Co., Ltd. and Kritrin 'Ming' Limrueun, Executive Director of Suanluang Autohaus Company Limited. All honored guests, dressed in beautiful outfits on the theme of 'Londoner', are invited to take pictures with a chic photo corner area with Afternoon Tea set which has been prepared by Capella Bangkok.

"Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. It was so popular for people there to have only two main meals: breakfast and dinner, per day. The Duchess would become hungry in the afternoon. So, she ordered the court ladies to prepare some tea and light snacks like scones served with clotted cream, small biscuits, and finger sandwiches. The Duchess would also invite her noble friends to join the afternoon tea and discuss news as well as other insights. Since then, afternoon tea has become England's most quintessential customs." said M.L. Chiratorn 'To' Chirapravati, educating the participants about the history of afternoon tea.

The afternoon tea's mise en place lesson began with the preparation of the tea essentials. The expert shared their tips and techniques such as 'the teacup must be lightweight', 'the saucer must fit the teaspoon' and many more. In addition to those highlights, the guest speaker also said that the correct order to enjoy the food that accompanies afternoon tea is savory to sweet: sandwiches first, then scones, and chocolate last depending on preferences of each household.
