I am a lover of tea and I could drink it all year long… hot or cold. So when I heard my church was having a Women’s Spring Tea I was excited! This was the first of many teas to come…we plan to make this an annual event. We had 6 women who hosted tables, myself included, and we were allowed to pick our own themes. There was no limit to the creativity! Here are 6 ideas that will have you wanting to join in on the fun!
This beautiful Rustic Chic theme is so elegantly feminine. The colors are soft and natural. I loved this theme it is absolutely beautiful. I could see this being great for not only a tea party but a rustic wedding as well. You can’t go wrong when you add a touch of glamour to outdoor elements. To create visual interest to your centerpiece consider adding wood pillars in various heights and top them with candles. You can also include several smaller flower arrangements around your main flower arrangement. Add in some pine cones, wood signs and tea light candles and you have got yourself a beautiful table to show off. Don’t forget to add a sweet touch with a few pieces of candy! We don’t have the most elegant chairs in our church but here is a simple way to cover them to make them look more elegant. Wrap tulle over the chair and tie it into a bow and top with a flower.
2. Mad Hatter
Who doesn’t love Alice in Wonderland. A great adventure in a fantasy world. With this theme feel free to use bright colors and fun patterns. Add a personal touch with hand painted tea cups and fun head bands with little hats and or rabbit ears. My friend who decorated this table made all the decor herself. She created the centerpiece with a candle holder, a teapot, a hat, flowers and some tea cups and she glued it together with epoxy glue. I can’t help but be impressed with all the creativity of the women in my church.
You can add some other fun elements into this theme with a handmade sign. There are a ton of fun printables you can find on Pinterest. Check out my Pinterest Tea Party board for some other great party decor ideas.
3. Holly and Ivy
Christmas is so fun and festive and so is this beautiful table. Its a great theme for those who love Christmas. Its fun to have a Christmas feel even in April.
You can get a little more use our of your Christmas decor with this theme. Bring out your Christmas tablecloth, plates, cups and napkins. For a simple but beautiful centerpiece use a wreath and add candles and beads and or ribbon.
This is a stunning table and could definitely be used as a theme for tea and a wedding. Its very contemporary but simple and pretty. The focal point of this table is the beautiful flower arrangement. Fill a crystal vase with decorative glass gems, add silver and cream flowers and silver beaded wire and you have a stunning centerpiece. Set the flowers on top of a silver place-mat and surround with beautiful candles.
The tableware is simple yet beautiful with its decorative silver border. Add a personal touch with a napkin folded into a flower. This theme is timeless and can be used year round.
5. Country Livin
We are after all in Texas…so we have to have a country table. This table is so cute. I love how she tied it all together. Country animals, a tin pitcher and linen place-mats add a fun country feel. But don’t stop there…place some eggs, country boot scatter and bandannas and you are good to go.
You could take it a few steps further and add some straw or small hay bales if you are feeling adventurous.
6. Breakfast at Tiffany’s
So this is my table. I was told that my table looked like a wedding table…so here is another great dual theme. I found my silver sequined table cloth on Amazon and I added touches of Tiffany blue to make it a true Breakfast at Tiffany’s theme. For my flowers I filled three clear vases with cream flowers from Walmart. I got the center blue flower arrangement from Party City…where I also purchased the rose petals and blue diamond gems. I also added some white candles around the flowers.
You can opt for simpler table ware. Mine were handed down to me from my mother but I loved the silver band around it and thought it fit perfectly into my theme.
The food was fantastic as well and we were lucky enough to have a dapper serving crew!
The tea was a success. We had a great time and I can’t wait to do it again. The women at my church are all so very talented and I am blown away by the creativity that is displayed. You can’t help but walk away inspired!
