Tea party ideas work for every holiday. Lets think about using tea party ideas to make a fun filled children’s Easter tea party.
My ideas include inviting a few of my daughters small blooming tea balls friends and making the theme an Easter egg hunt. Living in a warm climate means the kids can search outdoors for their eggs and treasures. If you live in a colder climate have the Easter party hunt in one room like your family or game room. Coloring the eggs is something my daughter and I can enjoy doing together. She likes to help the Easter bunny with his job of dying eggs. If you’d like to have a party like this make sure to leave the eggs in a safe cold place for the bunny to find when he stops at your house. Leave him a note mentioning the egg hunt and he’ll do the rest.
The bunny will no doubt find good places in your yard to hide the eggs, one here a couple there in the grass or a bed of flowers. If your area doesn’t have spring flowers blooming yet you may want to buy some potted plants. Nestle an egg or two in among the leaves or put straw grass in the pots to hide the eggs. Lay the eggs or other goodies in the crooke of a tree branch or bush, under seat cushions on your deck or on the ledge of a windowsill. Allow some of the prizes to peak out of their hiding places so the younger ones have the best chance of being successful. Give each child a small basket to put their treasures in as a party favor to take home and enjoy. Make sure to have extra goodies on hand in case some of the children have no luck finding the eggs.
Provide a tea that is both healthy and good tasting. Rooibos tea comes from the African Red Bush and is not a true tea. It has even more antioxidants (think healthy) than a true tea. Your youthful guests won’t know or care, but their mom’s may not want their children to have caffeine which is in true tea. I personally have had the pleasure of drinking tea and iced teas since my childhood with no ill effects. You may decide to offer two teas, a rooibos and a true tea. Children usually like flavors like vanilla rooibos or blueberry black tea.
They will feel very grown up if you use small china tea sets and set your table with pretty dishes and flowers for a centerpiece. Thinking healthy again you may want to offer good snacks like carrot sticks and dip or a variety of cheese cubes with crackers. Fresh fruit cut into smaller pieces for tiny hands are a good idea too. A tea party requires tea party ideas for finger sandwiches. Most children love peanut butter and jelly, but make sure to ask all the mom’s if their children are allergic to peanuts before adding them to you menu. Egg salad is always a good tea sandwich filling that is healthy too. Use a cookie cutter in the shape of an Easter egg or after cutting off all the crusts cut the sandwiches in thirds.
