Something that many young children love to do is throw tea parties. More often than not the guests at these parties would be their stuffed toys and dolls. Some parents may even take the time of their schedules to play tea parties with their children. But why don’t you consider kicking things up a notch? We believe that the best way to do this would be by hosting a real tea party for your child and their friends. However, we know that you would need some assistance to plan this event.
Select a Date & Time
At this age, children would not have dozens of friends. Therefore it would not be an expensive undertaking for you to send invitations to all the guests. However, in order to do this you first have to figure out a date and a time to host this event. We would ideally advise you to select a weekend. That is because then the parents would be free to drive the children over to your place. Furthermore, as this is tea it should ideally be hosted between 3 pm and 5 pm. Once you hash out these details all that you have to do then is send out the invitations.
Create a Menu
As this is a tea party some parents may think it is imperative for them to serve tea. But keep in mind that you are dealing with young guests. Therefore not all of them would enjoy the taste of tea. Thus, that is why you should instead serve ice lemonades or another type of fruit juice. Furthermore, you can also serve finger food such as sandwiches and cakes. But you can definitely kick things up a notch by serving the kids mini pancakes. Furthermore, keep in mind you can also try them for yourself. It would also be something that the other parents would enjoy. Moreover, the children would not only enjoy the taste of these treats. But they would love the whole process of watching them being created. That is because it is an experience in itself.
Set The Table
It is imperative that tea is taken down a table with proper tableware. Therefore it is crucial for you to take the time to set the table before the guests arrive. That is because when the guests walk in they should be able to see a properly laid out table.
Thus, with the help of this guide, you would definitely have no trouble planning out a proper tea party. Furthermore, it would be an experience that your child would never forget.
