Ideas for Hosting a Winter Tea Party: Food and Drinks

Hosting a winter tea party // curated ideas by Bellenza.

Serve delicious tea party treats and cake like a Christmas bundt cake, chocolate chip scones, Earl Grey cookies, and Russian tea cookies. Use what we you have by serving these items on silver platters, white porcelain plates, and wooden trays that are lined with pretty white doilies. Prepare a tea station with a selection of fine teas like Lady Earl Grey, Chai, Peppermint, and Winter Spice.

The ideal setting for such a cozy event would be in your living room rather than a formal sit-down arrangement. Prepare an attractive coffee table centerpiece by sticking with basic floral decorations that you can already buy like poinsettias, Holly berry branches, or boxwood clippings. These are great for creating no-fuss centerpieces! But if you prefer flowerless options, vintage books and wine bottles filled with baby’s breath are great, too!

Instead of formal activities, keep the party alive with conversational pieces displayed on a side table. Include greeting cards, photo albums, and other sentimental pieces wherein you have had shared experiences with your guests.

As for thoughtful guest gifts, bake or buy shortbread cookies and package them in Kraft paper bags finished with twine and a handwritten note. Tea gift sets, porcelain cup sets, and cookie tins make equally presentation gift options. They’re usually available as ready-to-give items prepackaged with ribbons and tags.

With these 5 no-fuss ideas for planning a winter tea party, we’re sure you’ll enjoy this celebration all throughout the season!
