My niece had a Tea Party theme for her birthday last December. Since I love party planning, I assisted my sister in organizing the celebration. It was for my niece’s 6th birthday and she had eight little girls attend. As with all the birthday parties that I plan, we selected the party design first. My niece chose a fun purple and pink tea cup design partyware. We also purchased personalized birthday invitations in this same tea cup design. Once the party supplies and invitations were selected, we then began deciding on the other party items including the party craft, games, cupcakes and party favors.
Party Craft: For the Tea Party craft, I purchased foam door hangers. The girls decorated their door hangers with self-stick foam hearts and glittery heart shaped rhinestones. They finished off the craft with a wood shaped tea pot that I found at the local craft store. It was pink and purple and really coordinated well with the party theme.
Party Games: We decided on four tea party games. The first game the girls played was Tea Cup Toss. We collected lots of different cups from around the house. Some cups were from play tea sets and other cups were from the play kitchen. We organized all of the cups together on the floor and the girls tried to toss large rhinestones into the cups. It was lots of fun! The girls also played Tea Party Bingo, Tea Pot Pinata Game and Pin the Flower on the Tea Pot Game.
Party Favors: We purchased a pre-made party favor kit which included a flower cookie, pearl necklace, tea cup notepad, lip gloss, a pen and tea cup blower. (the kit also came with tea party stickers, but we handed those out as game prizes instead of including them in the party favor box. ) We then added in a Hershey bar wrapped in a personalized wrapper and a paper fan. On the outside, we placed a personalized favor sticker thanking everyone for coming.
Party Decorations: My sister took out her old china to really make the Tea Party table look elegant. The table was set with the partyware that came with the Tea Party box and extra balloons were added. Each place setting also received a lace paper doily.
Designed2bSweet carries a large assortment of Tea Party Supplies. Some of the items include long gloves, tea party hats, feather boas, jewelry, tea party purse favors, candy, rose petal tutus, lip gloss, feather fans, gift bags, lollipop bouquets, sun hats, sunglasses, tea party crafts, tea party parasols, and more. They also sell party supplies in the following patterns that would be great for your tea party: Butterflies, Colorful Dots & Stripes and Lulu Style.
I just came across this Topsy Turvy Party theme today. It is a brand new design that has just been released. It is so cute! The colors are very vibrant and fun. You can order the Standard, Deluxe or Ultimate party kits. Additional items can be added to your party pack including Party Favor Kits, a Personalized Birthday Banner, Tea Pot Candles, and more. When I saw this new partyware, I noticed that it actually matched my Tea Pot cupcakes better than the design I used since it features the same bright and funky color theme. So, now you have two Tea Party themes to choose from for your daughter’s Tea Party.
There is a large selection of Tea Party invitations which you can incorporate into your daughter’s birthday celebration. These invites can be completely customized with your daughter’s party details. Some of the designs include Afternoon Tea, Topsy Turvy, Alice in Wonderland, Sweet Tea, Princess Tea, Dress Up Tea Party, Tea Pots and Pastries, Mad Hatter and many more.
For the birthday cupcakes, I baked vanilla cupcakes and I decorated them in green, light blue, pink, yellow and orange tinted icing. The colors were vibrant. I topped each cupcake with pastel heart sprinkles and tea pot cupcake picks. After the cupcakes were decorated, I placed them in a Wilton cupcake stand. We placed the stand on the center of the party table.
