Oh what a lovely array of Tea Party decorating ideas. On such a special day the only way to celebrate would be with a tea party.
- Glue real flowers to a barrette to serve as napkin holders.
- Place a few bells on the tables for the kids to ring whenever they’d like to call for their servers, you.
- Have someone dress as a butler in a suit or tuxedo greeting the kids at the door. Make sure to call the girls “Madame”, “My Lady” and the boys “Sir” etc. while escorting each one personally to their place by the table.
- Place your favors and cutlery in plastic solid color cups and pour sweet mints into your Tea Party Cups.
- Make cute place settings for your little lady’s tea party in a few short steps. All you need is Tea Party Lunch Plates, School Bus Yellow Crepe Paper Streamer, and double sided tape. The first thing you need to do is turn your Tea Party Lunch Plate upside down and put double sided tape around the back edge of the plate. Next take the streamer and stick to the tape, being sure to fold the streamer in random places to create a pleated look. Now you’re ready to flip the frilly plate over and top with a meal fit for a princess.
Here are some ideas for tea birthday party food:
- Finger sandwiches - they should be petite and delicate and can be cut into different shapes with cookie cutters.
- Bagels with cream cheese
- Cheese and crackers
- Fruit skewers
- Pretty petit fours – can be home-made or bought frozen
- Turn white paper bags into giant tea bag party favors by filling each one with party favors. Fold the upper corners of each bag toward the center, then fold down the top and staple a piece of string to it. Staple a paper name tag to the end of the string.
- Flower plants and teapots make for an excellent activity. Have the kids decorate the plastic teapots and plant flowers inside. Then have them place their tea-plants around the tables and house.
- Have each child create their own fancy fans! You’ll need crayons, markers, colored paper, glitter, stickers and tape. Let the kids draw pictures on each side of the paper and then have them fold the paper accordion style and fasten one end with tape to create the handle. Gently spread out the other end for a beautiful personalized fan.
- Bake a rectangular cake and cut it into many squares. Have each kid decorate their square with icing, sugar decorations etc. and then put all the squares back together to form a cake quilt. You’ll be surprised how nice these come out.
