Pop-up Tea Party in Dublin on April 16th

Wafty B's Tea Party

My friend Ruth is organising Wafty B’s Tea Party: a lovely, once-off, pop-up, afternoon tea event in Dublin on Saturday April 16th.

I have every faith that this will be completely delightful – I can’t say enough good things about Ruth’s cooking. She’s a magician in the kitchen and personally saved me and other friends from death by Tesco Value Baked Beans on a student summer in Edinburgh many years ago.  The tea party will have cucumber sandwiches, Mrs Beeton’s champagne jelly, vanilla pannacotta and many other delicacies on offer.

The tea party is taking place in a secret location in Dublin city centre (you’ll find out on booking), costs €20 per head and all profits will go to the Capuchin Day Centre who are feeding a mind-boggling 480 people a day at the moment.

Seatings are taking place at 11am, 12.30pm, 2pm and 4pm on Saturday April 16th. You can book your place through Event Elephant.


  1. This would also make a lovely Mother’s Day gift…

  2. Thanks for posting this Jean. We’re getting lots of bookings, though weirdly noone is going for the 11am slot.

    Get out of bed!


  3. Sounds great – looking forward to it. Great charity.

  4. The tea party is now booked out. Keep an eye on Wafty Beetroot on Facebook for other pop-ups (a picnic in a hidden garden…etc.)

  5. Hey anyone know if kids are allowed? and where it is? didnt say anything in my confermation email and wondering where we are to go

  6. Hi Aza,

    Just about to send confirmation to you now….

    Kids allowed, certainly. You might let me know what age they are in case Wafty has any entertainment up her sleeve – colours and the like.

    It is linen tablecloths, coffee, tea and tiered stands, so long as the kids understand what’s involved, they’re very welcome. There’s also a space upstairs an adult could retire to with them if things get rowdy (which I’d have to do with my kids!).

  7. Loved it. What a lovely way to spend a few hours on a Saturday and raise money for a really worthy charity. The decor was lovely with lots of quaint mis matched delph. The food was nyomy and those fairy cakes that went around at the end were to die for – beautiful (had to be homemade) jam and just milked this morning fresh cream. Big pat on the back to Wafty B’s Ruth and all involved.

  8. Hi Laine,

    Thanks, just seeing your comment now. We loved it, and loved having all the guests come into the space for just one day.

    Wafty B.
