Modern Tea Party

Here is our take on a Modern Spring tea party. It would be good theme for a springtime baby shower, wedding shower, or brunch. I like throwing smallish parties like this because you can make more thoughtful details instead of throwing a giant party. My friend Andrea helped us put together a perfect menu of non-traditional (but really easy) tea treats that our guests LOVED.  Click through below to see all the details from the party!

For the food we made Triscuit Crackers with Strawberries, Cream Cheese and Balsamic Vinegar, Vanilla Scones with Clotted Cream and Jam, Salmon, Cucumber and Dill Sandwiches, Spring Salads with Edible Flowers, Mango Pots de Creme, and Brownie Marshmallow Snowballs. Triscuit approached us about working together so we included one of the recipes from this Pinterest board at our party. We chose this recipe because it fit best with our tea party theme. For the decor I knew I wanted to use my new Mud teacup set I got for Christmas. I recently got this dark tablecloth from Unison and I liked the idea of going dark to make it feel a little more modern and playful. We mixed up all the place setting colors to feel more casual. To serve we put everything on serving platters I like to use the tiered platters because it gives things height. Et voila! Tea is served.

    Gorgeous! Everything looks so good. I always think of Alice In Wonderland when I think of tea parties, it makes me smile.

    I love tea parties but I hate tea. I’ll have to have a little party like this but with juice, haha.

    Aww, everything looks wonderful. Andrea makes great food, too! She’s catered for a couple of events I attended and everything was delicious and simple. 🙂

    I’m a huge fan of afternoon tea. This tea party set up is amazing! Hopefully I’ll be able to throw something like this when I get my own place. This blog has great party ideas. Glad I happened to come across it.

    Beautiful! My 3-year-old son somehow got super into tea, and I know he would love a tea party 🙂

    Also, any chance of an update on the 52 dinner parties idea? I would LOVE to hear details on how it’s been going!
