I am so excited to share today’s post! I’ve been wanting to do a tea party for ages and I finally got a chance to do it a week ago. The weather was great, the sun came out and I felt like I could conquer the world! Does anyone else feel like that when the weather is good?
I guess you can say I did the tea party to celebrate the sun! haha (Warning: there will be a lot of exclamation points in this post!!)
For it, I made a banner, a few finger foods, set up a table, bought some flowers and put it all together. Flowers literally make everything better in my opinion! If you are ever having trouble setting up for anything, just buy flowers! I like getting them from Trader Joe’s, they are surprisingly affordable and have so much beautiful variety.
To set the table, I mostly used things from my house. I put flowers in tea cups and utilized lace by hanging it with the banner as well as putting it on the table. I also made a tiered stand by using a cake holder, a cup and a plate. (I did borrow my friend H’s cake holder, no harm in borrowing things right?)
For the food, I made egg salad sandwiches, chicken avocado rolls, brownie truffles, blueberry and cream parfaits and chocolate chip cookies. My friends brought pasta salad, veggie pinwheels and hummus!
I will be posting the recipes for all this stuff in the following weeks, so keep a look out! 😀
If you like the banner, you can snatch it from my Etsy shop by clicking here! It’s a printable so when you get it all you have to do is print it on card stock paper, cut along the lines and hang the individual pieces on a string using clothespins or the method I showed you in a previous post.
What do you think of my little tea party? Have I motivated you to host one? 😉
