Jun 16th 2020

Tea parties are the perfect excuse to gather family or friends together for an afternoon and share great food, stories, and a laugh or two. These gatherings do not have to be complicated, always keep it simple. Here are some tips to create a smashing spring tea party at home that feels effortless!

Setting Up the Theme

Every party will be more interesting with a theme. Picking a theme, even if it's just a color scheme, it will be easier to decide on things like the table cloth design, set the mood of the spring tea party and establish a dress code for everyone. Make sure that the decorations match with the set theme. Keep in mind that a theme-oriented arrangement will help the guests feel the party atmosphere.

Include Entertainment

Sipping tea while listening to classical music may seem refined, but it gets boring fast. Make sure to incorporate some entertainment into the spring tea party to create lasting memories of this wonderful time. Plan some small activities and games such as word games, charades, or puzzles so that everyone can enjoy themselves at the party.

Menu Planning

Spring tea party refreshments can be playful and understated with cookies and petit fours. It's better to choose a simple food that is easy to assemble and can be served at any time (keep the serving sizes on the small side, and pay particular attention to the way food is plated). For example, serve a plate of Danisa Butter Cookies. The irresistibly buttery and delicious taste comes from high-quality butter and other fine ingredients baked to crisp and rich perfection. Aside from that, Danisa has several variants to choose from: Danisa Traditional Butter Cookies, Choco Cashew  Butter Cookies, or Currant Crunch Butter Cookies. Buttery and flavorful, Danisa Butter Cookies are absolutely delicious snacks for the spring tea party.

Decide on the Tea

Tea is an obvious option for beverages at a spring tea party. However, consider offering a variety of tea flavors to please different taste preferences. It also gives guests the option to try a variety they may normally skip. Offer the guests an option of a dark tea (such as Earl Grey or Darjeeling), a caffeine-free option (like chamomile) and a fruit tea (for children).

The important elements for a great spring tea party are planning ahead and having fun, because it's a good opportunity to have a quality time with loved ones and enjoy the smells of spring together. With those easy steps above, prepare to be amazed by how the tea party magically comes together!
