Girls Tea Party Themed Birthday, ideas for a tea party

TEA PARTY IDEAS AND SUPPLIES

Tea Party

At One Stop Kids Party Shop we have a fabulous selection of girls birthday party supplies that are perfect for a Tea Party. Tea birthday parties are becoming increasingly popular with the presence of high tea themed baby showers and hens parties and the increase in popularity of vintage in the last 2 years, which has now spread into little girls birthday parties.

A tea party is a gorgeous theme to choose for your little girls next birthday party. When our little girl turned 2 she was not yet into anything in particular like Dora or Barbie so we thought a afternoon tea party theme would be perfect and it was. I set up a table with a vintage style white lace tablecloth and set up her new tea set on it so the kids could play around and act out a tea party. I also provided a box with some tea party dress up’s such as big floppy hats, over sized dresses, chunky necklaces and high heels which the kids could use to get into the theme of the party, this also proved to be a great idea and kept the kids very happy and most importantly busy.

There are a few different choices you can go with in terms of party supplies when it comes to a tea party theme. What is very popular at the moment is choosing one or two solid colours, such as hot pink and baby pink or baby pink and lavender, and basing the tableware and decorations around these colours. Also very popular for tea parties at the moment is the use of gorgeous vintage style Bunting Flags.

At One Stop Kids Party Shop we love our gorgeous butterflies and dragonflies party supplies for tea birthday parties. This theme has everything you need for your little girls party including invitations, balloons both helium balloons and latex balloons, party blow outs, Party Plates, Party Cups, Party Napkins, Party tablecover even gorgeous matching party bags and party favours. When you go with a theme I have to admit it does make organising your child’s party a lot easier and less work for you in the long run which is important for parents well mostly busy mums these days.

Other activities you can do at a tea party to keep the guest busy are bake scones or cupcakes and get the kids to decorate their own scones/cupcakes. Or why not purchase from Kmart a cheap paint your own tea cup craft kit this is a great activity for the kids at a party and what’s even more exciting is they get to take it home as a memento of the big day.   For the under 3’s simply print out some pictures of a tea set or tea cups and get the kids to colour them in.

At One Stop Kids Party Shop we love to hear from our readers and customers if you have a great idea or two for a little girls tea party then we would love to hear about it. Thanks for sharing.

 

Chocolate Chip-Orange Scones

Kids positively go nuts for these scones!…
and you will too, just see for yourself.

Ingredients:

6 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoon of sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 large egg
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 teaspoons grated orange zest
Cream to brush
Cinnamon and sugar to sprinkle

 

Directions:

Position a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Have ready a large ungreased baking sheet.

In a large bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cut the butter into flour mixture with 2 knives, tossing pieces of butter with the flour mixture to coat and separate them as you work. The largest pieces should be about the size of peas and the mixture should resemble breadcrumbs. Work quickly. Do not allow the the butter to melt or form a paste with the flour. Stir in the chocolate chips.

In a separate bowl whisk the egg, heavy cream, and orange zest. Make a well in the center of the butter-flour mixture and pour in the egg mixture. Using one hand, draw in dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Wash your hands and dust them with flour.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Gently knead a few times to gather dough into a ball. On a lightly floured surface, press the dough into a circle about 3/4 inch thick. Cut out triangular wedges with a floured cookie cutter or sharp knife. Place the scones 1 inch apart on the ungreased baking sheet.

Brush the tops with extra cream. Sprinkle tops with cinnamon and sugar. Bake until the tops are golden brown, 12 to 17 minutes. Let cool on rack or serve warm.

 

Fresh Strawberry Tea Cake

This cake serves well with fruit or chicken salad. Try it  either plain or with whipped cream!

Ingredients:

1 cup sliced strawberries
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts

 

Directions:

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x5x3″ loaf pan. Put pan aside.

Toss strawberries with 1/2 cup of the sugar. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour or in the refrigerator overnight.

In a large bowl beat the eggs. Gradually beat in the remaining 1/2 cup sugar. Then beat in the melted butter. Beat in any syrup that forms around the berries, as well.

In another bowl, mix the flours, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Next, add dry ingredients into liquid mixture. Stir until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in walnuts and strawberries.

Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 50 minutes, or until cake tests done with a toothpick. Transfer pan to a rack to cool before removing bread.
