What music is suitable for a tea party? Celebrating a special event with outstanding performances that include singing, dancing and acting is a great way to keep the guests involved in the celebration. These fun activities are perfect for guests of all ages and will add a great deal to the celebration. More often than not, these performances will be the perfect addition to a fun filled and exciting event. A tea party is a classy, sophisticated affair so choose classic songs and classic compositions from Beethoven, Bach, Mozart and Shubert. Why play the entire collections of these great composers when you can choose a select group of songs? A few selected songs from a variety of composers will do the trick.

Ensure the tea party music is not so powerful or scary but subtle and relaxing.

Creative tip: Make sure to put a stamp on all invitations that are to be mailed in a timely fashion. Sending out save-the-date cards is extremely important as the holidays approach and guests have a number of social engagements to attend. Plan ahead by including at start time for the day and if needed include a reasonable end time as well.

A Tea party is ideal for homemade party supplies such as tablecloths, napkins and placemats.

From the actual tea party supplies to additional party goods such as teapots, tea cups, streamers and balloons to handmade hair bows, dresses and tiaras the party can be very special. Research finds that party supplies for a tea party vary from those of a traditional children’s party.

Most often, handmade party supplies for a Tea party will include stuffed animals, handmade costume jewelry and hair bows, along with party supplies such as tea pots, cups, and beautiful centerpieces. Many of the girls at a Tea party will enjoy dressing up in homemade costumes. Therefore, personalized party supplies such as banners, signs and garden flags, along with other party goods such as paper plates, cups, napkins, noise makers and hats will make the party extra special.


Tea parties are special times in the lives of little girls and therefore the perfect cake for this party would be a photo cake. This exciting and fun event is the ideal time for a variety of creative desserts and other tasty treats designed especially for this celebration. These items are always a great addition to a celebration and most often the addition of enjoyable fares that are designed especially for this gathering will make everyone feel very special. This tea party birthday cake will be exclusively designed for your own little girl and is very simple to make. A tea party photo cake is designed with your own daughter’s picture and is perfect for birthdays and other special occasions.

This unique tea party birthday cake can be made two different ways. First of all, using a regular photo and place it in the middle of the sheet cake after putting the icing on the cake. This decorates the cake and gives it a personalized touch. However, some people are starting to make their own photo cakes by using rice paper and edible ink to create photo cakes with a special laser printer. Regardless of which option is chosen, your photocake will be a very special addition to the tea party.

Most often, the party supplies and cakes that are chosen for the tea party are not nearly as special as the dresses and hair bows worn by the guests. These dresses and hair bows will be very colorful and along with the cake and party supplies, will add a great deal to the party.

Most people do not think of tea as a health food, but the facts shows us differently. Throughout history, tea has been recommended for many types of ailments, but it has only been in recent years that the general medical population has recognized the true benefits of tea. In fact its a great drink to serve at that next Red Hat party. Various wines have also seen some health benefits. Many of these benefits relate to Chinese Green Tea and red wines, many medical doctors feel that any type of tea affords the same health and antioxidant benefits as those found in green tea.

For decades, our ancestors have schooled us on the advantages of drinking tea. One of the most common home remedies for colds in yesteryear was that of the hot totti, which consisted of hot tea, lemon, honey, and a swig of spirits (whiskey, brandy, scotch). The patient then went to bed and huddled under the covers to sweat the cold out of their body. Sadly, today it is illegal to use this remedy on children because of its alcohol content though many cold medicines indeed contain alcohol. Another useful home remedy for tea is drinking hot tea with honey and lemon for a sore throat – the lemon is optional; it is the honey that is important. The combination of the tea with the honey has a soothing effect on the sore throat, allowing it to heal without prescription or over the counter medications.

Green tea has been praised for its antioxidant qualities, and many people resort to drinking these Chinese herbal teas as soon as cold weather begins to show its ugly face in order to build up their immune system, and thus prevent many of winter’s viral and bacterial infections. Though some medical professionals believe that all of the teas have these same qualities, only the green teas have a history that connects their consumption to a decrease in illness as the result of a boost to the immune system. These healthy drinks along with cute supplies are always a great addition to a celebration and fun posters that include designs and greetings that are perfect for the celebration will liven up the event and make everyone feel very special. More often than not, these signs and posters will add a lot of fun to the celebrated get together.
