Generally speaking, you will find that tea parties are held the majority of time in relation to bridal showers, kid's party events, mother/daughter celebrations, and of course, a good old-fashioned ladies afternoon tea.
Some of the most popular tea party ideas include adding a theme to base your party upon. For example have your guests get dressed up in accordance with the particular theme, along with adding decorations to help get everyone in the proper mood.
MAD HATTER TEA PARTY IDEAS
One of the most famous themes is a Mad Hatter Tea party. This is a fun option, especially if you request that your guests dress in tale outfits, or with bunny ears, or a crazy hat. This would be one of the most important aspects of this type of tea party.
Be sure things are a bit crazy and unorthodox when decorating for this party. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Decorating the place where the party is going to be held with bright and multi-colored tablecloths and napkins. Don't go for matchy-matchy. This will be helpful in enhancing the mood of the guests.
A great decorating option that is also very inexpensive are decks of cards. Fan out the playing cards and glue several of them in place. Then use these fanned cards to decorate walls, tables, hang from the ceiling on fishing line, etc.
Place a big armchair at the head of the table for the honored guest.
Use mismatched cups and saucers. You can find lots of fun options at second-hand shops. Fill them with stuffed white rabbits and decorate the party room with them.
Mad Hatter Games And Activities
To coordinate your game and activity time with your party theme, you might want to opt for watching a portion of the "Alice In Wonderland" movie. Other ideas might be to play lawn chess or lawn croquet.
Mad Hatter Party Food Ideas
Be sure to provide the guests with large numbers of treats like the cookies that are made in the shape of the words "Eat Me", tea cakes that are produced in the shape of playing cards, cookies that are made in mushroom shapes, and iced tea.
GARDEN TEA PARTY IDEAS
Garden Party Clothing And Corsages
When hosting a tea party with a garden theme, be sure to request your guests to dress in the highly elaborate tea party outfits. This will give the ladies an opportunity to wear a picture hat and lengthy pearls or perhaps they might like to opt for wearing a long gown with long sleeves.
You can also have available fresh floral corsages to give to the ladies as they arrive or allow them to select their own. Classical roses, beautiful lilies, delightful daffodils or daisies all work great.
When decorating for your garden party, here are some ideas you might consider incorporating:
You could easily use Chinese lanterns and pastel stringed lights.
Cover your tables with pastel tablecloths and linen napkins, along with bouquets of fresh flowers.
Be sure to use lots of floral fabrics that coordinate for decorating purposes. Pieces of fabric can serve as table runners, backdrops to cozy in an area, transform walls, while creating garden ambiance.
You can also opt to use bud vases or multi-colored glass vases with fresh flowers.
Garden Party Ideas For Food
You can opt for traditional tea party sandwiches like cucumber, creamed cheese items, and different varieties of teas or go with dainty little sandwiches minus the crusts and cut into fourths. Strawberries and cream or dipped in melted chocolate is always a yummy and most welcome option.
