When it comes to tea parties, any theme is a great idea. We especially love the idea of a country-style tea party. And it’s easy. All you need is a gorgeous day outside, a simple table setup outside on the grass, some delicious food, cute décor, fun invitations, and you’re all set to go.
When it comes to what type of tea to serve, you really can’t go wrong. However, we do recommend our AppleNut Crumble and Happy Tea. After all, it’s a party. To give your tea that country flair, use a rustic tea set of copper or ceramic.
When it comes to food, no one does it better than country. You’ll definitely need some hearty tea to go along with your old-fashioned buttermilk biscuits and country cornbread. And don’t forget to offer some fried green tomatoes and chicken potpie. And finish up the party with delicious bread pudding and pecan pie.
If you’’re going to have a country-style tea party, then you need to dress the part. Encourage all your girlfriends to wear their favorite pair of cowgirl boots matched with an adorable skirt or dress. Lace is also perfect for a country tea party along with earthy tones and colors. Take a look at these adorable dresses from Country Outfitter.
Create your invitations antique-looking paper and be sure to keep in mind the country theme. Think cowgirl boots, flowers, earthy colors, wood, and all things rustic. For some ideas, check out Zazzle’’s country-style invitations.
When it comes to décor, it’s about having fun. A country-style tea party is all about natural woods and colors and getting back to their rustic feeling. Mason jars are a must or any country party—use them to hold candles, drinks, or flowers. Burlap is also always a good idea when going country. Add some burlap pillows to the chairs, use a burlap tablecloth, or even just use small strips of burlap to tie off the napkins or as placemats. Country Living has some great ideas for your country party décor.
