Planning a Tea Party - My Table Setting

Here is a glimpse of how the tables looked at the tea party.

There were white table cloths with a silver lining, white chair covers, white cloth napkins and of course....tea cups and saucers.

I found these great white folding chair covers.

Planning a Tea Party - Flowers

A tea party must have...fresh flowers.

I bought flowers that matched the colors of the tea party and placed them in a simple vase.

Planning a Tea Party -DIY Cupcake Tray

If you have a color scheme or theme for a party a great thing to do is make a cupcake tray that stays in line with the theme.

The colors for the tea party are white and blue. I could not find a cupcake tray that I like so I went to Party City and bought a paper cupcake tray.

After putting it together, I added some ribbon to the three layers....and voila...

Planning a Tea Party - Party Favors

So I am planning a Tea Party for my mother's birthday.

I did a lot of time researching tea etiquette, decorations, types of tea, brewing tea, and food....(more on all of that later)

The first thing I tackled was...Party Favors!!

Since the tea is being hosted for my mother and her girlfriends, I put together favor bags that catered to women pampering and accessories.

So everything would fit, I got some gift bags from Target and got some pretty tissue paper.

Here is what I included:

  • Wallet size calendar card
  • Animal print coin purse
  • Bath and Body Works anti-bacterial pocket size hand sanitizer
  • Nail Polish
  • Chocolate Candy
  • Notepad and Pen
  • Some chocolate chip cookies
  • ..and of course some tea to try at home!
