Tea Party Menus
Your Tea for Two party needs some delicious menu ideas. Tea party sandwiches are tiny sandwiches. They are very dainty and usually eaten with the fingers. Cut off the crust of the bread and spread on some tuna or chicken salad. Cut the sandwiches in four pieces. Tea party menus can also include cream cheese, turkey or even peanut butter and jelly!
Make mini cupcakes and frost them in pastel frostings. They will be the perfect size for a tea dessert. Of course, you can serve scones and krimpets too. Or buy a box of petit fours, unless you have a recipe and can make them yourself.
Make a pot of tea for your party guests, of course, you should also have some juice or punch on hand for those who prefer not to drink tea.
You can look at the party supplies shown above to look at the cute Tea for You candles. They would look great on your cupcakes!
Tea Party Invitation Wording
If you decide to make your own party invitations simply cut construction paper out in the shape of a tea pot or cup. Use flower stickers to decorate around the edge of your paper. Reserve the middle for your tea party invitation wording...and the back for your party details:who, what, when, where and RSVP.
Make a rhyme for your party invitation wording, something like:
Tea for you and Tea for me, we'll be lovely as can be. Dress like a princess for this tea party!
Tea for two, that's you and me. Dress fancy as can be. This is a formal tea, you see.
Tea for two or three or four, who knows, there might be more. Little ladies deserve treats, and there will be plenty of yummy eats!
Whimsical invitation wording makes the party sound fun, even before it begins! Let your party anticipate your party long before they arrive.
If you don't want to make your own tea party invitations, take a look at the invitations shown in the party supply pictures.
Tea Party Games
In olden days, ladies would play croquet, so why not give all your guests a lesson in this old fashioned, but fun game. Tea parties call for a bit of reserve, but fun is never out of place.
How about the Tea for You Match Game that you can see in the tea party supplies shown in the pictures above. It's provided by Celebrate Express...a leader in kids party supplies and games. This match game is three games in one!
Another old fashioned game is Pin the Tale of the Donkey...well, there aren't any donkeys in sight today, so Pin the Handle on the Tea Pot is the ideal game for this party theme. Draw a tea pot and make lots of "U" shaped handles so the girls can try to attach the handle to the pot. Double sided tape will do the trick to keep the handles where they were placed.
Tea Pot pinata is a perfectly lady like game...when you add the pull string conversion kit to it. Pinatas are always a big hit at any kids party. First, to be safe get the pull string conversion kit. Ladies at tea parties do not swing bats or sticks at a pinata. Fill your tea pot pinata with goodies and treats and let each girl pull a string until someone finds the lucky string that breaks open the pinata and lets all those goodies spill out.
Sugar and Spice Relay Race is really the old egg and spoon race...but this time (if you are very brave Mom) you can let the girls try to get from the start line to the finish line with a spoon filled with sugar or a spice. Place a tea cup at the finish line for the girls to put their spoon in. If you are too afraid to trust the girls not to get the sugar all over, use hard boiled eggs! It will still be fun.
Make sure you let your guests know it's okay to eat the food with their fingers. Tea parties are notorious for serving finger foods.
Tea Party Crafts
Tea Party crafts are a must! Let each girl make her own party favor. Hats are all the rave at tea parties, so arrange for each girl to make her own hat. Get a straw hat for each of your guests and put all kinds of adornments and frilly trimmings such as:
- scraps of fabric
Add some glue and glitter so the girls can make their hats sparkle. Let each take the hat home as a party favor...but not until after the milinary fashion show. Take a party photo of each girl in her hat, and then gather all the girls together for a group photo too. This will be the perfect memento to enclose in your thank you notes, and of course you will want some birthday photos to add to your daughter's scrapbook.
