Dear Danielle, Thank you so much for the afternoon tea you served City-REDI on Tuesday. People really appreciated the variety of options available, and everyone said how much they enjoyed the sandwiches and cakes, and particularly the delicious scones! Thanks again for your flexibility and willingness to fit in with our needs, and having to change the plan at the last minute due to the weather. That was much appreciated! We will most definitely be using you again for future functions, and I won’t hesitate to recommend you to other departments at the University, or to my friends for any events they may be having
Matthew, Training Manager, City-REDI, Birmingham Business School, Birmingham University (July 2023)
‘Hi Danielle, I wanted to thank you again for the wonderful food you provided for my birthday afternoon tea. Everything was perfect. When I walked into the room it looked amazing. The birthday cake was the best I’ve ever had both in taste and appearance. You put in so much effort behind the scenes to make the afternoon so special for me. You really are a star baker !’

‘Thanks to Danielle at My Selection Box for an amazing Gluten Free Afternoon Tea. Everything was delicious and even my husband was tempted to try the Gluten Free treats and was super impressed. We especially loved the Gluten Free Celebration Cake. Would definitely use My Selection Box again.’

Anne, Ireland (December 2021) – delivery to Bromford Bridge, Birmingham
‘This was an 80th birthday gift, my Aunt rang me to say it had been delivered and the person delivering it spoke to her by name and was lovely. I got another call later to let me know what was in the box and that they had started on it. I had another call this morning to say how delighted they were with the afternoon tea, the delivery and the selection – it had helped to make her day so special. Thank you for an excellent service.’

Judith, Sutton Coldfield (March 2021)
‘Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the Afternoon Tea. I have been told it was brilliant and it was perfect. From the extra touches like napkins to the little milk bottle all very appreciated. Thank you so much for a great service and for bringing a smile to a couple of elderly people who have had it very tough over the past year like so many others.’
Naheeda, Abu Dhabi (March 2021)
‘Thank you sincerely for the wonderful afternoon tea you provided for my sister last week. You made it a very special day for her in these difficult times. She said that everything was presented beautifully and the food was delicious, especially the super cake you provided. It was very special and looked it when she sent me a photo of it. Once again, our grateful thanks for making her day one to remember. ‘
George, Erdington (March 2021)
‘We ordered a delightful afternoon tea for three to celebrate a birthday in lockdown. One of us is gluten free which was no trouble at all. We were really impressed with the service. It was easy to order, there was plenty of choice on the selection of sandwiches and cakes, and the food arrived promptly and nicely presented in boxes on the day. The afternoon tea itself was very high quality – easily equivalent to dining in a five star hotel. Also the personalised menus were a lovely touch. We look forward to using My Selection Box again.
Liz, Harborne (March 2021)
‘I ordered three Afternoon Teas as a suprise to cheer up family we haven’t seen for over a year due to COVID. The value for money was amazing …so much food for what you pay for. I’m told it was also packaged up beautifully. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Danielle
Jenny, Maypole (January 2021)

Kathryn, Kings Heath (February 2021)

Jade, Kings Norton (January 2021)
‘I had the wonderful experience of the My Selection Box’s Afternoon Tea. Wow, Wow, Wow !!!! Absolutely exceptional. The lady delivered in the awful snow and still managed to get it to us. It did not disappoint. The food was packaged lovely. The food was to a high standard and extremely fresh. Wow the cakes were simply divine. I will not hesitate to order again. Thank you so much . You made a lockdown birthday feel special.
Stephanie, Quinton (January 2021)
‘I received the Afternoon Tea for my birthday and my goodness it was one of the best Afternoon Teas I have had (and there have been plenty). This was delivered the day before and was double wrapped so it would stay fresh. The sandwiches were a nice mixture, not the usual choices. The cakes were so tasty and the brownie, the best brownie I have ever had ! I also had a Red Velvet Birthday Cake which was beautiful. I can honestly say that I will be purchasing Afternoon Tea and cakes from here again.‘
Samantha Jayne, Er

‘Danielle, Just a note to say thank you so much for the lovely Afternoon Tea. It was beautifully presented, delicious, bang on time and a hit with everyone. The boxes worked really well for an outdoors social distanced mini birthday celebration and no washing up for me – hurrah! I will definitely book you again‘
Michelle, Moseley (November 2020)
‘I just wanted to drop you a message to thank you for the lovely Afternoon Tea today. It was very scrumptious and so filling. I also asked my neighbour for her feedback, she said she felt like ‘she’s been to the Afternoon Tea at Claridges today’. Many thanks once again – until the next time’.
Fransiska, Harborne (November 2020)
‘What a wonderful little business. Danielle is amazing at what she does, her sandwiches and cakes are beautiful. I arranged the Afternoon Tea as a suprise for my sister and Danielle could not have been more accommodating. Fantastic service from start to finish.‘
Erica, Harborne (November 2020)
‘Danielle went out of her way to ensure my friend had the most fabulous afternoon for her birthday. Se was totally blown away and still keeps talking about how amazing all the food was. I also purchased the birthday cake which was stunning and tasted even better. Danielle managed to turn everything around in a day ! Will definitely be using again and have recommended to everyone I know. The personalised menu is a lovely touch. Thanks Danielle’
Lucy, Solihull (August, 2020)
‘I booked an anniversary tea for my wife and I, on our Wedding anniversary and it was lovely. The sandwich selection was tasty and beautifully prepared and the scones and cakes were fresh and a real treat. I’d also comment that there was plenty of jam and cream for the scones, which was really nice. It was all finished off with a lovely, personalised menu, a nice touch’
Dave, Hall Green (August, 2020)
‘Great afternoon tea and wonderful customer service as well. Very delicious and would definitely recommend. Thanks again Danielle!’
Aamina, Moseley (July, 2020)
‘Thanks for doing an afternoon and a signature gateau for us today Danielle, it was absolutely delicious (as normal). Folks? If you have not tried My Selection Box then you really are missing out, give them a call and treat yourself’
David, Hall Green (July, 2020)
Thank you, Danielle, for doing the afternoon tea for my daughter’s baby shower. It was amazing – everyone commented on how lovely the food was. Everything was beautifully cooked and the presentation and service was perfect.
Jackie, Hall Green (November 2019)
We used Danielle a couple of weeks ago. To say the food is fabulous is an understatement. Beautifully presented and really does taste as good as it looks. It was a 70th Birthday surprise for my Mum who has mobility issues. It made my Mum’s day very special – we will definitely use Danielle again.
Laura, Harborne (July 2019)
We used Danielle for the second time this weekend for an afternoon tea for a family gathering. The offering is simply outstanding. The food is beautifully presented and tastes as good as it looks. One of the main advantages though is the convenience of having someone bring everything to you (even including the milk for the tea !) is amazing. A couple of my relatives aren’t very mobile and going out for an afternoon tea causes much planning/stress. My Selection Box brings everything to you and so solves all these problems. I’d happily use the service again and I heartily recommend it to others.
David, Hall Green (February 2019)
‘WOW !!! Just had a fantastic afternoon tea for my 18th birthday! Everybody loved it and it will go down in history forever as a great birthday party. There was so much delicious food and bellies were absolutely full with all of the food having almost completely disappeared. The perfect amount and the perfect layout. Thank you.’
Amy, Moseley (October 2018)
Danielle you are very talented thank you again for a wonderful afternoon tea party you catered for myself and 23 friends, your attention to detail is incredible the flavour of everything that you present is just Divine it was better than a top hotel or restaurant and you would win the Bake Off for sure xx
Valerie, Edgbaston (August 2018)
Attended a delightful 75th birthday tea last week for over 20 ladies, made all the more special as it was catered by My Selection Box. Super little sandwiches, dainty cakes, meringues and individual desserts in shot glasses, all to die for! And all presented and served by the charming caterer herself. Highly recommended for an At Home celebration. Danielle brings everything with her and takes “the dirties” away with her leaving no mess and only the furniture to put back in place!
Sarah, Selly Park (August 2018)
Danielle catered my dads 75th surprise afternoon tea! It was fabulous!! Danielle and her team were professional and worked to a very high standard. The presentation was exquisite and each item looked fresh and made with such precision. The food sweet and savoury was so fresh and tasty, I literally couldn’t stop eating the sandwiches. Two days later they were still fresh and the bread so soft After the party friends kept talking about how delicious the cakes were and how they literally tasted as they was described; the coffee and walnut cake and carrot cake seemed to be a big favourite. My favourite were the Florentines!! And the desert shots were to the same standard we had at our wedding ( by a professional wedding caterer).
Brilliant idea and I have no doubt my mum would use her again and me also if she travelled to Manchester.
Thank you again. My dad had the best birthday!!
Charlotte, Manchester (August 2018)
‘The afternoon tea that Danielle provided was amazing. Despite it being for a sad occasion, the excellent presentation, attention to detail and quality of food uplifted our spirits! The day was very hot and the food remained fresh throughout. The pretty bone china, linen napkins, attractive cutlery and glassware were very well received! The variety of teas and coffee ensured that our guests had a wide choice. Last and by no means least, the dainty sandwiches with generous fillings, the scones, the sweet treats and cakes were absolutely delicious – our favourite being the carrot cake! Thank you for helping to make our “special” day memorable.’
Susie, Edgbaston July 2018
‘Just wanted to say that the retirement Afternoon Tea Retirement Party I attended yesterday was better than any I’ve had at The Edgbaston or The Hyatt or any of my usual haunts’
‘A perfect English Afternoon Tea – presented in your own home – what could be better?
Delicious homemade cakes, scones, dainty sandwiches, and choice of teas, served on fine china crockery, adding a touch of understated elegance. A superb way of entertaining friends/colleagues in style without any fuss or worry – fabulous !’
“A beautiful Afternoon Tea, served on simple but elegant fine bone china. Such a lovely choice of delicious sandwiches, scones and cakes. It was so nice to be able to host this in my own home.”
