Ideas for Hosting Tea Parties

  • Use your china teacups and saucers. (Check thrift stores…sets don’t need to match)
  • Invest in a small tea service (teapot, milk pitcher, sugar bowl, size teacups and saucers and six cake plates).
  • If possible, use cloth napkins .
  • Present the food attractively. Cover trays with doilies or pretty napkins. Arrange food on a three-tiered cake stand.
  • For something different, host your tea party on your patio or deck.
  • Decorate with fresh flowers and add the quiet background music of a harpist or pianist.
  • If you are the hostess of a tea party, pour the tea, passing it to each guest in turn, adding sugar cubes if requested.
  • For an extra touch, have your guests wear Victorian hats and crocheted gloves at your tea party.
  • Give party favors at your tea party. Use your imagination and give according to season, theme, or holiday.
  • Conversation should be light and fun-filled at a tea party, no gossip or controversial conversation
