Anyways, we all had such a wonderful time, that I wanted to make a guide so you can have your very own Victorian themed tea party!
1. Make the Menu
Finger sandwiches are perfect, as is an adorable salad, and don't forget dessert!
I found this amazing website that is full of wonderful tea party recipes! Everything from sandwiches, to desserts, to jams!
2. Don't Forget the Tea!
There aren't too many rules with the tea!
You can have hot or cold.
Tea bags or leaves.
Honey or Sugar.
We had all of the above!!!
3. Set the Table
Look around your own house and attic, and see what you can find!
You can also ask an older relative if you can borrow some of their antiques, or even go to your local thrift shop and find some treasures!
Look for things with lots of lace, pearls, and flowers! Look on the internet for inspiration!
But remember, decorating for your tea party is extremely important. How you decorate your tea party space, can immediately inform your guests what theme they are taking part in!
4. Make your guests paper fans!
-Fold each piece of paper accordian style.
-Put glue (from your glue stick, not the hot glue gun!) in the creases and folds of the fan.
-Sprinkle glitter over the fan.
-Let the glue dry, then shake the excess glitter off, back into the glitter container, or on top of another fan that has glue on it.
-Staple the bottom of the accordian paper together, so that it is now a fan!
-Put some hot glue on the end of the fan, and attach the feathers to it!
#5. Make yourself an adorable hair piece!
You can actually purchase the actual hair piece that I'm wearing in the photograph above, from my shop.
-A small piece of cardboard
-A large alligator clip
-2 white fabric flowers
-A hot glue gun
-Arrange the fabric flowers on the piece of cardboard, then cut it into the correct shape and size.
-Using your hot glue gun, glue the fabric flowers onto the piece of cardboard.
-Glue your alligator clip onto the back of the cardboard with your hot glue gun!
#6. And lastly, don't forget to take plenty of adorable pictures of yourself and your party guests!
Peace Love and Tea Parties
