Tea Party Ideas

Tea Party You are cordially invited to our Tea Party ideas. Every little girl loves having tea with her little dollies or stuffed bears. Why not host a real tea party and invite her friends for a brunch or afternoon tea, or a backyard tea picnic in a gazebo.

Have everyone dress in their prettiest tea apparel, and have Dad or brother be the butler. Serve with your finest china, (or plastic tea sets for the little toddlers) and decorate with the utmost detail. Snack on delicious finger sandwiches and tea cakes for dessert. With pinkies up, how would you like your tea? Cream and Sugar?
