For many young girls, the tea party is the ultimate symbol of both elegance and girlhood fun. Impress your young guests with the good taste and fun formality of a stately royal tea party.
Light feminine colors like pink, gold and lavender should predominate at a tea party; with the use of softer materials like tissue paper, paper lace, sparkle and sparkly netting, or—if the party budget permits—fine fabrics like genuine lace, silk and satin, the host can decorate and illuminate the party room with radiant handmade banners, columns and swirls. Elegant period wall art, either store-bought or handmade, would make another elegant accent.
Guests can adorn themselves with lovely, princess-style dresses in shades such as pink, mauve, lavender and teal, preferably homemade and complete with slippers and wide-brimmed hats made of tissue or paper mache. These costumes can be crafted from elegant combinations of silks, satins, ribbons and lace, and accentuated with necklaces and bracelets made of handmade beads and other types of jewelry. As a craft the girls could even make tiny teapots from paper or clay.
Guests can entertain themselves by playing chess, croquet, and other gentile games typically played at formal parties. Then they could sit down for some sumptuous servings of tea in hand painted cups, along with homemade finger sandwiches, cakes, mints, cookies and wafers served on fine china, lace doilies, and handmade lace cloths.
Make guests feel like the queens of the ball with a stately tea party. Plan a royal good time today, that will suit them to a ‘tea’!
