Tea Party Scones

Sharing is caring!

Today I am sharing a fun recipe for banana scones. These tea party scones have chocolate chips in them, but you can omit them or even add nuts if you want.

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.


Banana scones with chocolate chips
Even just the idea of spring is a good time for a tea party –  don’t you think? You can put one together relatively inexpensively too. Today, I thought I would share my tips for a fun gathering of friends or family.
Simple Scone Recipe

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.I made these tea party scones the other day and they bring back so many memories of celebrations! So quick and easy too!
