Looking for a Princess Tea Party idea with a difference?
These Onederland birthday invitation party packs might just be the inspiration you are looking for.
A truly classic design, you can customize and download banners, bunting, name cards, food labels, cake toppers, party invitations, arrows, and tags as well as thank you cards.
Pink, Blue, Lavender, and Green themes are included.
Table settings make a tea party. Think lace napkins or doilies, flowers, place cards, jewels as decorations, but please do not be tempted to use plastic tableware.
Each guest needs a cup, saucer, and side or bread plate.
Atea party would not be complete without a showy teapot so do not be scared to use a really blingy one. One will serve around 3-4 people, for more guests use more than one teapot per table.
A Birthday tea party says “fall in love with a little pink”.
This baby pink, cerise, and other pink balloon arch surround a magical pumpkin coach reminiscent of classic Cinderella.
Big ribbons on pink chairs, tulle tablecloths, gold table settings, and acrylic menus make this theme every princess’ dream.
Add this castle cake and magic must be just around the corner.
Beautiful, yet simple, this Princess Party idea combines nostalgia with fantasy in a timeless, yet practical way.
Soft pink roses, cupcakes, balloons, and fairy wings all join together to give every princess her birthday dream.
A classic mint green teacup and saucer set with plates made from paper completes the look.
The best bit – no washing up needed.
For older children, a proper vintage tea party set-up is a perfect birthday party solution.
Think mix and match eclectic, this theme requires you to break those uniform design rules.
Why not go with pink lemonade, macarons, and different cups and saucers to give that shabby -chic yet stylish tea party look.
Crisp white or lace tablecloths and you can make all princess’ tea party dreams come true.
Make the most of the weather and have your princess party outdoors.
Dress up and set up glam stations at the party entrance to add that little bit of extra bling.
Floral wreaths or crowns make every child feel extra special on the day.
Necklaces, rings, and candy bracelets complete the look.
You can even bling up your own teacup.
Who says tea has to be boring?
This tea, available from Whittards, is a delightfully rosy color and tastes both sweet and tangy.
A true summer classic, you can serve it from a pitcher with lots of ice and lemon slices.
Or make your own by combining something like English breakfast tea with pink lemonade, ice cubes, and lemon slices.
Macarons have done it again.
A combination of almonds, icing sugar, sugar, butter, and egg whites, macarons are simple, yet surprisingly not that easy to make yourself.
These can be flavored with rose water or berries of your choice.
Fortunately, macarons are available at several places these days so you do not have to don your inner chef just yet.
Fruit cups are one of those party treats that have survived throughout the ages and rightly so.
Combining several of your five a day, you are limited only by your imagination or what is not available to you locally.
Our favorite cups combine several berries, apples, pineapple, and bananas.
Just remember to add a squeeze of lemon and make them just before the party.
When it comes to Princess Party birthday cakes ideas, you really are spoilt for choice.
Castles, tiaras, or Disney Princess-themed, you cannot help but find inspiration everywhere.
Pastel or bright, multi-layer or two, Princess birthday cakes are typically sponge cakes and pretty easy to bake.
Just prepare yourself for hours of decoration should you decide to have a go yourself.
Easy to make, these chocolate-dipped shortbread teabag cookies will have you reaching for more.
Prepare shortbread dough by mixing it together
Shape the cookies into squares, cut off the top edges to look like tea bags, bake them at 175°C for approximately 11 minutes, dip them in 100 grams of melted chocolate, add twine or thread and labels to complete the look.
Although the five-finger (ham and mustard, cucumber, egg and cress, smoked salmon, and coronation chicken) is an English classic tea sandwich, there are many more options available.
Served to keep hunger at bay in the afternoon, tea sandwiches are perfect for Princess Tea parties.
Choose from the classic club and cucumber sandwiches to anything from smoked salmon, brie or apple, carrot, and raisins. You really cannot go wrong.
Give the birthday girl a slipper and get her to hide it somewhere in the house or outside.
Let the other guests close their eyes and go look for the slipper.
The birthday girl can help them find it by giving clues such as hot or cold.
The person who finds it first gets a turn to hide it next.
Yes, every princess and her guests deserve a little makeover magic just like in the Cinderella classic.
Use an ornate mirror and chair, then hypo-allergenic powder, blusher, eye shadow, and lip gloss to give your guests a make-over to remember.
Apply clear nail varnish to clean hands, dust with glitter and there you have it. A bevy of beauties for the rest of the party.
Instead of tiaras, which are a princess party classic, why not have a go at creating and decorating your very own fairy wand.
Make available glue, ribbons, glitter, gemstones, stickers, feathers, etc. and ask the guests to use the glue to attach these to wooden dowels.
Award a prize for the most creative and or the one that finishes first.
Think musical statues, but instead use the I’m a Little Teapot song.
Encourage the guests to act out the teapot dance and when they are in full swing, stop the music.
Players have to freeze when the music stops. Anyone who is still moving is out.
Continue and repeat stopping the music at random points until only one player is left.
Divide your guests into teams.
Each team is then given a teapot, a teacup, and a saucer. These might have to be paper ones for younger guests.
Let the teams line up behind a starting line.
Place two teapots filled with cold water a fair distance away.
The teams must run, like in a relay, while balancing their cups on the saucers, to the teapots.
After filling the cups, they must then carry the cup on the saucer back to their teams and pour the water into an empty pot placed at the starting point.
The pot which is the fullest is the winning team.
This game is a version of the classic Egg and Spoon race.
Use a cube of sugar instead of an egg.
Players start at the starting line just as in the tea party relay. Should a player drop the cube while running to the other side, they have to return to the starting line and start over again.
This is a version of Pin the Tail on the Donkey.
Draw the shape of a saucer onto a piece of cardboard or use a paper version.
Blindfold players and hand them a cut-out in the shape of a teacup or one of the paper teacups mentioned earlier.
The players who can pin their cup on the saucer, or get the closest to the saucer, is the winner.
However you decide to celebrate, a tea party is a great way to bring out the old, combine it with the new in clever ways, and generally just give your little ones the opportunity to have fun in a grown-up and playful way.Princess tea party ideas also encourage you to enjoy some fresh air outside whether you opt for a picnic-like setting or a formal table.
