Tea parties are usually associated with some vintage and shabby chic because it’s an old tradition. Vintage-style tea parties are great for bridal showers, baby showers, and just plain fun with your best girls. Would you like to know how you can implement such a topic? I have a lot of ideas for you!
Vintage tea party decor
Vintage tea sets with gold decorations, vintage silver tea and coffee pots, stunning plates are the key to any vintage tea party. Create a beautiful decor with vintage teapots or tin cans: use them as vases. You can also put fresh flowers in vintage teacups and add pearls, or put flowers in mini cages and hang over the table. Vintage tea trolleys or desks are perfect for displaying desserts and sweets of all kinds. Wrap utensils in pastel napkins and use stacks of books with pastel cups, pearls and flowers to decorate the table. Keep everything nifty and chic!
Vintage tea party food
Treats and sweets should be designed and refined in a vintage style: if they are sandwiches, they are given a sweet heart shape. When it comes to macarons, go for pastel shades. Marshmallows, sugar cookies, meringues, heart biscuits, strawberry shortcakes, almond cupcakes and cookies with colored icing. Serve different types of tea: green, black, white, herbs and offer your guests the option of adding herbs or flowers to the tea themselves.
