I made these tea party scones the other day and they bring back so many memories of celebrating spring. My daughter and I have hosted a number of tea parties over the years from kids parties to graduation teas, family teas and mother’s day teas.
Tea party menu
- Serve tea party sandwiches made with cucumber and cream cheese, or small ham sandwiches and PB & J sandwiches work too.
- Scones with whipped cream or clotted cream if you want to try making it yourself.
- Cookies and small fruit servings make a fun and festive accompaniment.
- Tea of course! It is good to have a few flavors available and we like serving lemonade too just as an alternative.
Tea Party Decorations
- Flowers are always a nice addition but they can be tissue paper or faux flowers too!
- Linens on the table are a must in my opinion.
- Cute springtime crafted favors on the place setting always look nice.
