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.

Lego Party, Boys Birthday Party Theme, Kids Parties Ideas

Boys Lego City Party Theme-Kids Birthday Parties At One Stop Kids Party Shop we have all of the great  Lego City Party Supplies. All little and big boys love Lego and what a better way to celebrate boys love of Lego and construction than to throw a Lego City Party Theme Birthday Party.

At One Stop we have a fantastic Lego City Party Favour pack which includes a great range of Lego City party favour toys. We also have the Lego City party invitations, Lego City party plates, party napkins, Loot/Lolly Bags, Party Cups, Stickers, Tablecover, treat boxes, Lego cake decorations, Ceiling Decorations, Table Centrepiece, Lego City Balloons both Latex and Foil which are are both suitable for helium inflation. We even have a fantastic huge Lego City party Scene setter/backdrop to create a feature wall for your birthday party.

At a Lego theme birthday party why not set up a construction play area with lots of lego and lego characters for the kids to have free play with, this will be a great area for children when they first arrive at the party and is perfect for kids that are shy and feel intimidated at birthday parties. You can also have a range of cardboard boxes in various shapes and sizes and if you are creative why not paint them in the bold colours of the lego bricks. The kids can have lots of fun building with the large lego boxes.

Some other great games you can play at a boys lego theme birthday party are throw lego bricks into a bucket, lego and spoon race so instead of putting a egg on a spoon put a few pieces of lego on the spoon, you can have a lego guessing game so fill a jar with lego bricks and get the kids to guess how many pieces of lego are in the jar, have a party favour prize ready to go for the guest that guess’s the closest amount.

We also have a Lego Pin the Shark so it is a party game similar to pin the tail on the donkey and within the game there is a blindfold and large Lego themed poster and the kids have to pin the sticker onto the shark the guest that gets closest wins a party prize, make sure you check out One Stop Kids Party Shop great range of party favour toys for party prizes and for lolly bags fillers.

It is a good idea to choose a part of the house either inside or out where you are going to set up the birthday party table. You can place the giant Lego city birthday scene setter on the wall then to the side have the birthday party table. Decide if you are going to have a party table with a variety of finger food for the kids to choose from so they can come and go as the party is happening or are you going to perhaps hire some children’s party tables and chairs and have a more formal sit down lunch. Don’t forget no matter if you choose the casual party food table or more formal sit down party tables you will need to decorate with the lego city party tablecovers, table decorations, balloons, streamers and of course the Lego City party plates, cups and napkins.

Make sure you have a take home Lego city party lolly bag for each guest and why not grab our Lego city party favour pack to help you create the best take home lego party lolly bags in town.

So come on into One Stop Kids Party Shop and let us help you to create the most spectacular Lego City party today.
