Tea Birthday Parties for Kids
How about an afternoon tea party?
Trying to think of a fun idea for your little girl's birthday party? How about an afternoon tea party?
Little girls love to pretend and it gives them a chance to dress up and be little princesses for an afternoon.
"Tea parties are traditionally held in the afternoon, which makes them ideal for a children's party occasion. They're also a great excuse to play dress-up and eat sweets. Plus, they help kids practice table manners and party etiquette, such as sending invitations and thank-you notes. Don't think that a tea party has to be girls-only, by the way. While some kids tea party themes will probably be too girly for many boys, others are suitable for mixed company."~~Lori A. Selke, eHow contributor
“Snacks can offset a tea party. Some ideas for snacks include sweet shortbread cookies, lemon cake, meringues and chocolate chip cookies. You might also include savory snacks such as cheese scones, oat crackers or cucumber sandwiches.”—Mara Oakes, How to Host a Tea Party
Tea Parties for Little Girls...
"Cucumber sandwiches are a popular dish for tea parties. Head to your local farmers' market and find some local and organic cucumbers. Purchase some organic strawberries to eat with your scones or dip in your clotted cream & maybe some peppers for making a savory and spicy cheese."--Charity Hendrix

Tea Party Crafts
Make hats for their teddy bears...
"This can be done as cheaply or pricey as the supplies you wish to buy, every child should be encouraged to bring their best stuffed friend, but have a few extra's that can be borrowed in case anyone has forgotten, then supply party hats to decorate with lots of streamers and construction paper, or you can buy small straw hats and fake flowers to decorate them with at your local craft store.

Children's Tea Set
Colorful and charming, this miniature tea set is the child's equivalent of Rosanna's larger Tea's Me collection. Included are a chartreuse-and-pink teapot, four cups and saucers, and a sugar bowl and cream pitcher. With the whimsical feel of Wonderland, each of the four teacups is mismatched in shape and color combinations--a ruffled foot here, a peaked handle there--while the saucers feature petal rims and a top surface that is solid pink, blue, lavender, or apricot to match the bright tints on the cups. The octagonal lavender-and-blue sugar bowl and solid blue creamer add the crowning touches.
Rosanna makes the Tea For Me, Too set of sturdy stoneware that is safe for use in the microwave and dishwasher. Due to the dainty handles, however, the pieces might be better off washed by hand. A child will be thrilled to receive the round hatbox-style gift box decorated with its parade of colorful teacups and teapots. A tea party with friends is just around the corner. --Ann Bieri, Amazon Review
Tea Party Game
“Piggie in the Hattie: Before hand, you will need to write on a stack of index cards. Write down objects that make noise (e.g. an oinking pig, a mooing cow, a tractor, a honking car, etc.). The first kid who plays will draw a card and act out, verbally, what the card says. The first child to guess what the object is gets to go.”—Penny Richards, Top Five Tea Party Kids’ Games
