Just the thought of cucumber sandwiches and scones with cream and jam conjures up hazy sunny afternoons of fun, and it’s clear that I’m not on my own as the popularity of vintage tea parties keeps on growing. Read on for our House of Party vintage tea party ideas.
Vintage Tea Party Ideas
I think the best vintage tea parties are laidback, quirky and handmade… with everything a little mismatched. If you’re lucky enough to have vintage crockery that’s great, but if you don’t, or you want to avoid lots of washing up then we have some lovely paper alternatives. Our Vintage Rose and With Love themes are both beautiful ranges which complement each other with pretty flowers and butterflies. These ranges include paper cups, glass markers, ice cream bowls, chalkboard place names, napkins, paper bags, party poppers, a cake stand, cup cakes cases, cupcake flags, bunting and much more …
Bunting is essential for decorating tea parties; the With Love range has lovely floral bunting and table decorations, whilst the Vintage Rose range has the perfect cake boxes, cake stands and cupcake cases and napkins!
Vintage Tea Party Decorations
The little details of a tea party are essential, from little pegs, glass markers, place names, party bags… and the best part of organising a tea party – you don’t need to match everything. The Elegant Butterfly range have lovely favour pails which would be perfect for holding sweets and nibbles. Chalkboard place names are the perfect way of giving your tea party a personal touch, and you can these over and over at all your upcoming parties!
If you’re looking for a flowers and stripes pattern to add to your tea party, then I highly recommend having a look at our Frills and Spills range. Frills and Spills have beautiful bunting and even floral and striped party poppers – the perfect way to bring a bit of life to your tea party.
We have all the essentials for a fantastic tea party, for any age and occasion.
