Whether you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary, hen party, baby shower, childs birthday or even a fundraising event, why not celebrate with a vintage style tea party.
Start by sending out your invitations, you could do these by customising some inexpensive notelets with lace or little buttons and handwrite the details inside yourself.
Next have a mooch around some charity shops for some lace tablecloths or fabric you could hem (cheat with wonder web!).

Next the important bit THE FOOD! Make a selection of sandwiches with traditional fillings such as egg and cress, smoked salmon and cream cheese, cucumber etc, these will look fab cut into delicate triangles and arranged on little lace doileys. Complete the look with pretty pastel cupcakes, Battenberg slices and of course good old Victoria sponge always goes down a treat! It’s a must that the cakes are arranged on pretty 2 or 3 tier cake stands to perfect the theme.
Last but not least the beverages
Depending on the occasion, you could offer traditional tea, Earl Grey or Herbal teas or if you are feeling naughty why not serve wine out of teapots into cups and saucers, thats guaranteed to cause a stir (for over 18's only of course, soft drinks for kids work well too:)).
Give this a try it’s so much fun, you will never fail to raise a smile or if for charity a pound or two!!!
