If there is a better cake to go with tea we have yet to see it. Cupcakes are portable, lovely to look upon, and sinfully delicious to eat. These cupcake toppers can make sure that they stick to theme and make for aesthetic arrangements when you obtain your cupcakes en masse. Be sure to get a few different flavors and arrange each flavor into a shape or find yourself a 3-tier display so that they get the attention that they deserve.
“Get some assorted packs of tea and make a ‘tea station’.”
Sure, the display won’t last long (cupcakes quickly find themselves on the ‘endangered baked-goods list!) but that initial impression of delicious awe that comes when guest spot the yummy fare awaiting them is well worth your time. If you’ve got ’em, flaunt ’em!
Don’t forget the tea and sugar, of course!
If you don’t have a few favorites that you rely on, get some assorted packs of tea and make a ‘tea station’ so that your guests can select their own. Make sure that sugar cubes are accessible both there and on your tables as well as a pitcher or two of milk for those who desire it. It IS a tea party, after all.
Tea party baby shower ideas
There are always a few little extra things that you can do to make your baby shower perfect. We recommend finding an appropriate photo backdrop, for instance. If you fancy Disney, you could also turn a regular tea party into a Mad Hatter tea party with just a few adjustments. Also, give some consideration to your gifts. Will there be mostly adults at this party or lots of kids? You can always put the kids gifts separately if utilizing the set from this article (with 50 pieces you have a little leeway). This means that the adult bags can have things like bath salts, fancy teas, or whatever else you think might tickle their fancy. For the kids, candy is always a winner, or small toys. You can find inexpensive kids tea party sets if you want to keep to theme but with the kids bags generally some candy and any sort of toy is going to do the trick. Lastly, don’t forget that RSVP that we recommended earlier. It will help you to craft the proper entertainment and ensure that you are well-supplied. You don’t want your guests to find you ill-prepared when they have come all this way to honor mom and the soon-to-arrive little one. Keep your guests well-fed and entertained and the rest will all fall into place. We promise!
