Inspiring Ideas for Planning an Autumn Tea Party

Inspiring Ideas for an Autumn Tea Party

Send pretty tea party (1) invitations with a brown and orange palette to announce the event. For your table centerpieces, think diy-able components like (2) gilded vases with single stems of your favorite fall flowers. To make something quick and attractive, try adding baby’s breath or fall leaf branches.

Don’t worry about using matching tea and dinnerware! In fact, using a mix and match approach will make your table look more interesting using a combination of modern and antique elements like a (4) vintage-inspired stainless steel silver tea pot bearing a message of  “A Perfectly Brewed Tea Pot.”

As for an autumn tea party menu, think of serving pumpkin scones (6), apple tartlets, and shortbread cookies. Finger sandwiches (3) made with chicken salad, smoked salmon, or cucumber cream cheese make great choices to serve, including mini quiche tartlets made of bacon, broccoli, and cheese. Bake up a pumpkin bundt cake (5) topped with a cream cheese glaze for a sweet surprise!

Having a self-serve tea table would be the most convenient way to serve drinks. Prepare a variety of beverages consisting of fall-inspired teas like pumpkin spice, chai, and apple cider. Having a fresh brew of fall-flavored coffee such as pumpkin spice is an equally nice addition.

For party favors, give guests chocolate truffles with a taste of pumpkin. Present these chocolate truffles as lovely favors packaged in sheer gift bags. Add a favor tag with a personalized message and they’re ready to go!

Didn’t we say this was a fun party to plan?
