Tea parties are fun, elegant and versatile. Celebrate a shower, birthday party, or any other intimate event with this theme!
I attended a girlfriend’s tea party-themed birthday celebration a few years ago. I’ll never forget it. It was beautiful and personalized. She had elegant trays overflowing with scones, cucumber sandwiches, delicate vintage tea cups and tea pots, tall glasses of Pimm’s, and china brimming with spring flowers. Definitely Instagram-worthy.
Although you might think this theme is best for a feminine event, it can be adapted based on your attendees. In fact, it doesn’t mean male friends or family won’t love it too! Keep an open mind about who might enjoy it. Additionally, tea parties can be adapted to be intimate with just a small group, or expanded into a larger event with a large group of family and friends.
Set a great atmosphere and sophisticated vibe for the tea party! Ask your guests to wear their favourite dressy outfits. Also, decorate with lovely details like linen tablecloths, plentiful flowers, tea lights, ribbons, calligraphy, silverware, and delicate floral china.
Tea parties are the perfect event to offer a flowing buffet of themed drinks and light refreshments. In particular, include a variety of teas (of course!) plus tea-time favourites like cream scones with fresh preserves, finger sandwiches, and traditional Brit sweets like trifle and madeleines. It’s also a nice idea to offer champagne and a few other cocktail options, too. Delicious, delicate, and visually pleasing.
