Every great party begins with a thought that manifests into a well-organized plan. For your very own tea party, you can start off by creating some customized invitations and decorations. But you need to make sure that your invitation cards have very earthy and organic notes.
Next, you can take some time off to master your table manners and your tea drinking skills. Remember that, in some cultures, the very concept of tea drinking is an art in itself. Once, you have your basic ingredients in place. You can start warming the pot. In other words, you need to get your menu in place and gather all the required ingredients. For the fun factor, at your tea party, you can choose some entertaining games and craft projects.
A Valentine’s Day tea party can be a beautiful tradition. But some years you may find it hard to keep up with this elaborate style. But don’t lose hope, for you can always keep it simple, with the help of a few dainty hearts, some cookies, chocolates and a whole lot off exotic teas. Hope these whimsical ideas, inspire and entice you!
Present below is a list of a few teatime treats and delicacies. These tiny appetizers will definitely give your tea party a healthy and wholesome boost.
1.First and foremost, a good quality tea is most essential! You can always try out the Earl Grey for its herbal, yet modest tones will soothe the harshest of palates.
Next, you can bring out that warm and nourishing cream soup with some homemade heart-shaped tea sandwiches. If you do have some more free time, then you can put in those extra hours and create some wonderful and unique fresh scones that can be served with sweetened jams, sweet mini strawberry tarts and even delicate Valentine petite fours.
If you want to become a professional Valentine’s Day tea party host, then you need to remember that flavored tea should always be served before any food item. This must always be kept in mind, for flavored teas do not always compliment certain cuisines. For instance, this rule must strictly be applied to scones and sandwiches.
The great thing about any Valentine’s Day tea party is that the menu is extremely simple and most importantly it can be made ahead of time. So on the day of your highly anticipated party, all you have to do is put on your fanciest clothes and be on your best behavior. Enjoy your well earned, scrumptious food items at your beautifully laid out table. Enjoy the day and have a blast!
