11 Easy Steps to Host a Tea Party will help you plan the steps you need to take and plan for to celebrate your next Afternoon Tea event or occasion.
I have put together so many Tea Parties as it used to be my primary business. Now I just share with others how you can have your own Tea Party for your friends and family.
I don’t know what it is about having a Tea Party, but it gets me so excited just thinking about it. Maybe it’s the idea of having friends together, or maybe it’s about the food or the tea, but whatever reason you are having a party, it is sure to be a success. Follow up with all my Afternoon Tea Ideas and Tips page.
You don’t even need a reason to throw a Tea Party, you can just plan a date and a theme and make some tea and a few desserts or sandwiches and you’re done!
Not really there is a little bit more to it, but it is pretty easy. I will show you how below.

How to Host a Tea Party
- Set a Date – Make sure you give it a few weeks so your friends can make it.
- Send an invite – You can use paper or use Evites
- Get out your china – It doesn’t have to match, I love a mismatched china tea table. Do you need a place setting chart? See one below.
- Get some Herbal Green Tea and a teapot. Here is a tip to help you learn how to make a great pot of tea.
- Decide on a theme for your party.
- Make some savories like these cucumber sandwiches, or these 15 tea sandwiches, and desserts like these lemon bars. Don’t forget the scones
- Put on some nice music.
- Get out your favorite hats and place some great Tea Books around.
- Hopefully, you got an RSVP from everyone, they wouldn’t want to miss it and you need to know just how much food to make.
- Create Scripture Cards or Purchase Favors for Your Guests
- Be a great hostess, tell a cute teacup story or the history of tea, and this is the best part, pouring tea for your friends and having a great conversation.
The best thing about having a tea party or afternoon tea is just the fellowship and encouragement you can get during this time. You can have a successful Tea with 1 or 20 friends. You can even make it a monthly event and change up the theme and food each time. Order the Tea 101 Cheat Sheet here.
