Hosting A Tea Party - Christmas
This is the way I always start to plan our tea parties, and Christmas tea party ideas will come to you as you begin to plan.
From the list above, lots of sub lists emerge, but I get an overall sense of the way I want the tea party to unfold. Here is an example of how the sub lists emerge when you are planning a Christmas Tea Party.
Are You Sending Traditional Tea Party Invitations?
I can easily answer this question once I have set my tea party budget. If I have little to no funds available, I am not sending traditional tea party invitations, but I always send them. So if there is no money in the budget, consider sending an email invitation!! If you have some money, you may want to make your own tea party invitations, and deliver them in person. We have some great tea party clip art that you can use to create amazing invitiations, there is also a blank tea party invitation template that you could modify to a Christmas theme.
If you have the money, printed and mailed tea party invitations always are the best bet. You can order these online and have them custom printed, and mail them out with festive Christmas stamps for a really great impression.
Your tea party invitation is important as you are making an impression to the invitee on what type of tea party it will be.
This is just one example of how the sub-lists when planning a tea party unfold.

Christmas Tea Party Ideas
Once you have started to work on your list, decorating your tea party baking can be a lot of fun. Christmas cookies, and tea party recipes for Christmas events can really set the stage for your tea party.
One of our favourite suppliers has lots of Christmas Tea Party decorations for you to choose from. There are little Christmas Lights for your cupcakes and cookies, sugar candy poinsettias, balloons, streamers, napkins… Just search the word “Christmas” on their site!
Decorating for tea parties is one of my favourites, tea party centerpieces with festive pine cones and cedar boughs are always popular too and easy to make.
Pick your colors and decorate away. Green & White, Red & White, Silver…. The important thing is to have a theme.
We have some great recipes for Tea Party Sandwiches and the traditional fillings, so check those out for tea party ideas and instructions on how to make tea party sandwiches.
Now for the Tea… what type of tea are you going to serve? Christmas Tea Parties lend themselves to Spice Tea as well as your traditional teas like black tea and orange pekoe. Adagio Teas has a wonderful selection of teas that will impress all of your tea party guests. Adagio Teas even has a special Christmas Blend.
A nice take home gift for your tea party is handemade tea bags with some of your Chirstmas Spice Tea inside! These are really easy to make, and you can buy empty tea bags here. There are several styles to choose from and they are really inexpensive.
