A Tea Party is great “grown-up” fun and a special way to celebrate a birthday. A Tea Party works for a wide range of ages and can be whimsical or fancy. 

A Tea Party can highlight a special toy or book, such as princesses, dolls, teddy bears, Ms. Spider or Alice in Wonderland.

Make invitations in the shape of a tea cup, decorated with a paper doily or with a real tea bag and a big tea label invitation attached

What activities do you do at a Tea Party?

A Tea Birthday party can be a delightful and elegant way to celebrate your next Kids Birthday. Here are some activities you can do to make your party fun and engaging:

1. Tea tasting: Set up a tea tasting station where the kids can sample different types of tea, such as green tea, and herbal tea. Provide small cups and tea infusers, and encourage them to try different blends and flavors.
2. Dress-up: Encourage your little guests to dress up in fancy hats, dresses, or suits. You can provide a selection of hats, boas, and accessories for guests to choose from, or ask them to bring their own.
3. Tea party games: Play classic party games with a tea party twist, such as musical chairs with teacups or tea-themed trivia.
4. Tea party crafts: Set up a craft station where guests can make their own tea cups or tea bags. Provide plain white mugs or teacups and markers or paint, and let guests get creative.

      I imagine this is such a sought-after party theme after watching the Crown and Bridgerton on Netflix haha! Love the idea of having the children/guests test different teas, any recommendations for good caffeine-free loose-leaf teas?
