About high societea & Kathy Heath Events Catering

Kathy HeathWith 20 years' experience in catering for and theming corporate events and some of Brisbane's most stylish private functions, owner Kathy Heath decided to extend her exceptional flair and attention to detail to high tea service.

Growing up on a sheep-and-cattle property in rural New Zealand (Omakau, Central Otago) instilled in Kathy a great appreciation for fresh, quality produce.

With a house forever decorated with fresh roses, Kathy and her sisters enjoyed morning and afternoon teas of her mother's country-fresh, homebaked cakes and slices.
