Spring Afternoon Tea Party

Spring Afternoon Tea Party

Spring comes with fresh positive energy. The sun shines brighter and the flowers are starting to bloom. After a cold winter, it is time to break out of the cocooning inside we have been doing.

Spring is when we can again sit in the sun for morning tea and dreamily think of the warm spring days ahead.

It is a great time to plan a Springtime Afternoon tea party with friends.

Set the scene with a Spring table

Invite the energy and playfulness of Spring to your morning tea with the burst of colorful nature that is all around us. Decorate the table with bunches of spring flowers – daffodils, tulips and branches of blossoms in pretty vases or jugs.

Use the inspiration of spring for your color palette. With pastel pinks, yellows, blues and greens.

Don’t be afraid to mix colors. Spring is all about a burst of fresh colors in the garden, and there is no reason why your table top cannot look the same.

Add fresh linen napkins held together by pretty napkin rings.
