Hosting a tea party is the perfect way to celebrate a number of occasions, such as birthdays, anniversaries, bridal and baby showers or even a special way of spending some quality time with your loved ones.
Here are some suggestions to host your next tea party in style…
There aren’t any rules when it comes to food but generally, tea parties include savory bite-size sandwiches, scones or biscuits, and desserts (Give special attention to this). Presentation is the key when it comes to tea parties. You can display the treats on tiered cake stands and also remember to keep the serving sizes on the smaller side to keep them handy. Make sure the flavors of the food pair well with the teas.
Setting the Tea Table
A tea party is the perfect occasion to go all out with your fancy crockery and teaware. You can use a pretty lace tablecloth for your table and arrange platters of food in pretty patterns. You can also place personalized name signs for all your guests. You can use dainty floral chinaware and make sure to have plenty of spoons and cake slicers for serving.
Tea party decorations should be simple, elegant and classy. You can use a beautiful flower arrangement as a centerpiece and scented candles for creating a beautiful ambiance. You can also add a pop of color by using brightly hued doilies and folded napkins. You can pick a pretty color scheme of pastels or vibrant colors and decorate using items of same shades like the flowers and even the frostings on the cakes.
Tea is the star of the party, so make it count. You can use a variety of tea like the traditional English breakfast tea, peppermint, oolong, chamomile and floral blends. Also include iced, fruity teas for a spring or summer tea party. You can check out Tassyam’s unique, healthy, natural blends and super rare single-estate organic teas for your party here.
