Today’s post is all about Spring tea party ideas! When my friend Amber of Follow the Yellow Brick Home asked me to join her Tea Party Blog Hop I couldn’t say yes fast enough! Not only do I love tea but tea parties are a big part of our family (remember last year’s Mother’s Day tea party). I have so many fun ideas to share with you guys today that are easy, fun and definitely doable!

Spring Tea Party Ideas
If you are new to tea parties or just wonder about my tea party ideas you are in the right place! Tea parties are so much fun and my amazing mom has taught me everything I know! Your first step is to gather all of your supplies and go from there. I like to use baskets to help me. Below I have gathered my tea cups, jadeite, drop cloth napkins and tea pots in my white basket tray. This is my inspiration tray. From this point I start to build my table! Do you notice my color scheme?!
World Market is one of my favorite places to shop for tea party essentials. This is what I usually pick up: clotted cream, scone mix, Paris Tea by Harney & Sons (my all time favorite), mini jam and tea spoons.

Simple Spring Flower & Vases Ideas
Flowers are a must at Spring tea parties! I picked up these flowers in the discount bins at the super market and added them to a variety of vases on the table. You could also grab some flowers from your garden too. I love that this is an easy way to add affordable beauty to your table! A good idea is to have all of the vases tie together somehow. All of mine were different sizes but they are all clear glass! The juice jar below was too cute to throw away!
Of course the mini tea cup topiaries had to make an appearance on the table as well!
Scones and Sweets and Tea
Our tea parties always include scones. Have you seen my coffee butterscotch scones recipe? It is so yummy. I didn’t have all of the ingredients this time so instead I tried World Market’s lemon poppy-seed scone mix and it was simple and tasty too! I definitely recommend it. We also had mini cupcakes and cookies. All of these taste delicious with a good cup of tea!
Did you notice how cute the jelly jars are? Come see how I upcycled them for our porch last summer!
Of course I love decorating so setting the table for a tea party is so much fun for me. My mom always says the more opulent the better! In my mind that means filling the table as much as possible. The best way to do this is with height and down the center. I used cake stands and vases and flowers to add height. Also, don’t be afraid to mix colors and patterns. My jadeite tea cups and stands look pretty with my blue and white tea cups and Polish Pottery tea pot. All the color makes me so happy!
