This party makes my girly, tea loving self so happy! While I designed it with my daughter (who will be turning two WAY too soon) in mind, it can be fitting for any age. Change up the food and temperature of the tea to accommodate little hands and busy bodies and try hosting in the early afternoon. This way you can avoid serving lunch and stick to easy finger foods like scones, cookies, and of course cake!

1. Tea for Two Invitation by Chips and Salsa Designs

2. Betsy Liberty Plate

3. Betsy Liberty Napkins – Used as bunting (easiest DIY, fold over string and staple)

4. Assorted Pastel Cups  (can be used with warm drinks)

5. Kid’s White Gloves – Use as favors or have at each place setting for guests. So many cute pic opportunities with these!

6. Cake Party Picks – Wash and reuse for your next gathering!

7. Canape Plates and Pastel Napkins

8. This dress or splurge on this original Liberty frock!

As for food, keep it simple and store buy as much as you can. Let’s be honest, kids don’t know the difference and it makes clean up so much easier! Here are some ideas and ways to add a little flare to your table top:

• Both of the pictured treats are from Target (cookie aisle, wafers and jelly filled shortbread cookies). Arrange on a pretty cake stand and call it a day!

• Scones or muffins from the grocery bakery (minis are even better if they have them) or throw some biscuits in the oven and serve with a few different jelly options.

• Chicken salad tea sandwiches (or really any type of tea sandwich) are a great savoy option to balance out the sweets. Make your own if you have a go-to recipe, or again, buy the salad pre-made and class them up by serving on mini croissants with avocado and/or tomatoes, especially for the adult guests.

• Cupcakes and and birthday cake – buy these from the bakery! I tend to order mine plain with white icing then I can use matching cake or cupcake toppers.

If adults will be attending the party, save the hot tea (or champagne!) for them and stick to iced tea or juice for the littles.

Home Goods also has finger food options, although they can be hit or miss. I have purchased macarons, high quality tea and delicious cookies (even gluten free options) there often. They also have fancy jam and jellies to dress up your scones and biscuits!

Enjoy, friends!
