One thing I’m always thrilled about is gathering my best girlfriends for a day of high tea, great conversation, and lots of giggles. This is a tradition I cannot wait to teach my daughter (if she’s a girly-girl and interested in mommy-daughter tea parties). With each party, my details get better and better. Here are 9 tips I’ve gathered that will hopefully help inspire you and your “mini-me” when planning your ultra-feminine tea party.
1. Floral & Flirty
Encourage each woman to wear her most dainty, airy, feminine dress. I usually opt for floral print.
2. May I take your Order?
Make sure you know what type of tea each woman likes. You never know, there may be a general consensus which will make what you serve much easier. Just be sure that it’s all organic. One of my personal favorites is chamomile-lavender.
3. Fine China
Use the best china you have, and don’t worry if it doesn’t match. Sometimes an assortment of designs is a lot more interesting and shows personality.
4. Flower Power
5. Macarons, Please
6. Wake up and smell the Rosé!
Especially during the summer months, a blush or sparkling wine is perfect. A nice bottle of champagne may be ideal.
7. Oh, Yes, Lace
Lace doilies are aesthetically pleasing, and add a lovely touch of elegance.
8. Classical, Anyone?
I’m a classical music enthusiast. Who needs contemporary music with words when you have Chopin on vinyl?
9.) Consider a Theme
Mad hatter, polka dot, African, and Asian themes are my favorites.
Do you Tea Party? If so, tell me how!
