Tea Party Food Ideas
- Shaped Snacks: Use cookie cutters in the shape of tea pots and flowers to make cookies. You can also use the cookie cutters to cut out shapes in sliced cheese to serve with crackers.
- Finger Sandwiches: A must-have at any tea party! Make sandwiches in a variety of different flavours such as cucumber & cream cheese, ham & cheese, peanut butter, and tuna mayonnaise. Cut the crusts off the sandwiches and then cut each into fourths. Arrange the pieces nicely on a platter for serving.
- Heart and flower shaped Cookies: These elegant snacks are a delicious alternative to the traditional shaped sugar cookies.
- Petit Fours: Serve these dainty sweets on our two tiered heart shaped cake stand for an even bigger impact.
- Let each guest make their tea on their own! Set out a small bowl of sugar cubes, a squeeze bottle of honey, a small plate of sliced lemon, and a creamer of milk.
- Additional Beverage Options: No need to stick with just tea at your tea party! Along with the warm beverage, try serving fruit juice, lemonade, and sparkling soft drinks as well.
- Chocolate Fondue: Set up a chocolate fondue pot or a chocolate fondue fountain in the centre of the table. Give each of your guests a plate of goodies for dipping, including strawberries, marshmallows, lady fingers (also known as Boudoir biscuits), bananas, and apple slices.
- Tea Party Cake: One circular cake can create two teacup cakes! Cut a circular cake in half. On one side of each half, cut out the shape of the cup handle. Decorate each cake in white icing and decorate with pink and purple decorator icing and candies.
- Bake your cupcakes in our stylish teacup cupcake holders and serve your guest in style

Tea Party Decorations

- Drape the main entertainment area with our printable tea party bunting - that matches perfectly with your theme.
- Fill a large tea cup with flowers or flower petals and use this as the centrepiece for the table.
- Set out large white doilies at every table setting, and set the table in the traditional fashion. Write each guest's name in calligraphy on a tent card and place it at their designated seat at the table.
- Place your cupcakes in silicone white teacups and serve for each guest in individual saucers.
- Cut large daisy shapes out of white fabric, and add the flower centre in yellow fabric. Tie one flower to the back of each chair at the table.
