A tea party is usually associated with something vintage or Alice in Wonderland style, but what if you want something modern? Today I’m sharing some inspiring ideas to rock a modern tea party with chic.
Modern tea party decor
Opt for stainless steel cupcake and dessert stands, hexagon coasters and chargers, as the geometric decor is very popular and screams modern. Patterned tablecloths and table runners, wooden cake stands, metallic vases and centerpieces as metallic decor are also very modern and trendy. For cups and plates, just try white or transparent pieces as this is a modern tea party and everything should be laconic. I love the idea of using an acrylic dessert table, your desserts will be floating in the air!
Modern tea party goodies
Go for cool, tasty, and modern looking treats. The two trends that are emerging right now are bite-sized foods and custom cakes – everything will serve to differentiate fillings and toppings, and serve each guest their own cake. Bite-sized cupcakes, sandwiches and desserts are just right for you, custom cakes and moody edible mugs with chocolate. Don’t forget the tea: offer your guests different types of tea, from the usual black to herbal or floral tea.
The outdoor decor makes it possible to turn your rooms and porches into spooky ones and scare guests and children before entering the house. What are the ideas to decorate these rooms in the best and scariest way possible?
You can buy some skeletons and decorate your nature in a stylish and cool way. You can put one on a chair or bench on your porch and put a cauldron of candy for trick or treating on your hands, or you can place two skeletons that will make a grave in the yard. Another idea is to put several pieces of a skeleton in a cart or in the ground to remind you of scary movies. Attach skeletons to the wall outside of your home so they can climb.
Ghosts are another very popular idea for Halloween decor. Make chicken wire ghosts and cover with cheesecloth, add foam heads. Put them anywhere you want: on swings, on your porch, in your yard, etc. and note that they look really creepy at night in the dark.
Coffins, zombies, vampires, corpses and body parts, ravens and spiders - mix them up to your liking. Create coffins and tombstones in your yard, put witches and skeletons next to them, cover foam to mimic corpses, buy body parts and put them in creepy pumpkins like they are eating them. Scarecrows and fake zombie figures will scare everyone.
