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.
Pantries are the best place to store groceries and various kitchen utensils, especially if you have enough space. Whether it's a small pantry or a large room to store everything, you need to organize it properly to get the most space possible. Today I'm offering to take a look at how to organize your food using different bins and caddies.
Glass containers and jars are the most convenient for dry food: cookies, coffee, tea, various types of pasta and sweets. The best idea is airtight glass containers. So, look for convenient plastic or metal lids to keep the food safe and away from various odors.
Metal drawers are great for storing vegetables so they won't spoil. And of course, you can store different foods in packages and boxes if you want. A couple of such drawers are a good idea.
Plastic containers, containers and boxes are ideal for almost all types of food, they are easy to wash and clean and can be of any size and appearance for any room.
Other ideas can be various caddies, cubbies, baskets, and boxes that are cool for storing almost all types of food. Woven baskets give your pantry a rustic look. One important thing is to label the containers that you have. There are lots of ideas for doing this, printing out some labels, making blackboards, or writing the names of the food directly on the containers.
