9 cute ideas for a vintage-themed tea party
- A dreamy pink and Tiffany-blue table loaded with vintage-style crockery, sets the scene for this vintage-themed tea party. Old fashioned treats like Nougat, peanut brittle and Turkish delight, along with delicately iced shortbread biscuits and ladylike cupcakes, add to the old-world charm of this theme.
- Adorn your tables with soft flowers, doilies and lace, for a tea party your little princess will adore.
- It’s the little details that pull this theme together. The vintage straws can be bought from In Good Company, and the ribbons on the table from Ebony & Ivory. Lay the strips of lace and ribbon loosely across a plain table cloth.
- Use the same muted tones for your printed invitations, and fold a doily around it to tie the theme together.
- You can also use doilies and ribbon to round off the party packs.
- Cake pops are a huge trend, and are not as difficult to make as they look. For those who would rather leave it to the professionals, these were made by Charlene Voster at Pop Stop www.popstop.co.za.
