TEA PARTY SPOTS
Seats are limited, so please do not wait until the last minute to RSVP. Tea party registration is on first-come, first-serve basis. If reservations fill up before the deadline, you will automatically be added to the waitlist. Once registrations closes, you may choose to register for the waitlist, and we will contact you if a spot opens up.
We will be assigning attendees to chat rooms on our Event Discord Server. This allows for small groups of people to easily chat and participate in activities led by the table host. We will ask for your username in the RSVP form, so please have a Discord account before signing up. If you are unfamiliar with Discord, here is our video guide to help you best utilize it for a virtual tea party. We also have a tech guide and tea party guide available on our webpage as well as in the server.
AFTER SUBMITTING THE FORM
Once you submit an RSVP form, you will receive a confirmation email with specific guidelines and information. We will continue to follow up to that email address with any additional information, so please make sure the email address is correct and to check your spam folder for any missed messages.
Please read the RSVP form carefully. You may contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions.
We look to meeting you amongst the stars~
