How To Host A Tea Party

How To Host A Tea Party

I planned this bright and cheery tea party during the bleakest part of Winter as a mood lifter and to provide inspiration for Valentine’s Day. Planning a tea party can be so much fun, and I want to share with you what I learned on how to host a tea party.


Mailing hand-written invitations is always a nice touch and you can design your own (if you are feeling ambitious).  You can buy some online at places like Minted, Zazzle, VistaPrint, and Etsy.  When you are deciding on the time for your tea party, traditional tea time is 4 PM, but any time in the afternoon will work.

Dressing Up

It’s also fun if you and your guests want to dress up for the for the tea party.  It makes the occasion seem special.

Tea Party Tablescape

My tablescape consists of a beautiful white battenberg lace tablecloth that my parent’s gave me.  I wanted the presentation to be fresh and bright so I used white and gold as the main color palette with accents of pink and yellow for the focal point.

Tea Parties are all about presentation so you want your table to look as pretty and inviting as possible.  Pull out your best linen, china and cutlery and buy a fresh bouquet of flowers that coordinate with your color palette.

Tea Party Food

The food can be simple but finger food is the best.  Some suggestions include:

-variety of savory tea sandwiches
-French pastries
-chocolate covered strawberries
-mini quiches
-dainty deserts

Have Fun!

Above all, just have fun!  Thanks for stopping by and joining me!!


Here’a a takeaway that you can use and pin for future use.
