I love Tea Parties year round,but you can have so much fun with them in the Summer. The colors you can decorate with are amazing,and you can have them outdoors. I found some lovely inspiration for those of you planning a bridal shower,birthday party,or just a small intimate gathering with friends. Tea parties do NOT have to be stuffy,they can be light and fun.
What do you think? Do you like tea parties? What are your favorite ideas for them?
The muted tones at this party are so lovely. I’m also really in love with the fun crepe paper globes on the ground. You can see more lovely photos from this party at The Sweetest Occasion Blog.

Mismatched chairs,vintage luggage,old plates,milk glass…*sigh*…what a perfect day. New England Vintage Blog
Don’t you just love how Cardstore used old canisters to hold flowers? How lovely!
Be sure your food not only TASTES great,but LOOKS great also. You can use all different height dishes and platters and really think outside the box in terms of your display. Why not use jam jars for candles or even bake a cupcake inside them and tie ribbon around the outside?
OK,how cute are these?! Cupcakes in teacups?! Seriously,LOVE!
Favor ideas? I think I may have a few of those! ;)
How about this sweet keepsake tea cup with a lovely floral arrangement inside? You can pick up different teacups at thrift stores and vintage shops andcreatelittle arrangements. Why not get flowers in bulk at Costco,or from your own garden?
Or why not homemade vanilla marshmallows in a lovely glass jar? What is my obsession with glass jars?! hehe Here’s a great recipe at Annmarie Kostyk’s Blog.
And I love this idea! Why not get each of your guests something they can really use? A personalized stamp is a great way to mark your books,end a letter,or personalize something. Courtesy of the Giverslog.
I hope I inspired a few of you to go out there and have a party. Enjoy your Summer!
