Colder seasons often leave us in anticipation for all the wonderful things Spring and Summer will bring as the year moves forward. Warmer weather inspires us to enjoy longer days, get outside, and use our imaginations. One of the best ways to greet warmer days is to host your very own tea party!
How to Host the Perfect Tea Party:
1. Make a Guest List: It’s important to invite friends and family you wish to share this special occasion with (yes, stuffed animals count, too!)
2. Plan the Menu: Will it be cakes and cookies? Or cheese and crackers? Whether you choose sweet, savory, or a little of both, make sure to accommodate your refreshments with a beautiful presentation.
3. Send Your Invitations: Get creative! Invitations are an important part of any party. It’s a good idea to have them reflect on the theme and dress of the event. Your guest is sure to be excited when they receive theirs!
4. Choose a Location: No matter if you choose to host a garden tea party outdoors or have a sophisticated set up inside, make sure there is enough room for conversation and cake!
5. Choose Your Decor: The most important part in tea party planning is choosing a theme, including the accessories and dishware. With so many options from color to size to shape, it’s easy to find something that is sure to suit your style.
6. Relax and have fun!: The day is finally here! Your guests look spiffy and the food tastes fantastic. The only thing left for you to do is pour yourself a cup of tea, indulge in conversation, and enjoy the most perfect tea party of the year.
