Antique Tea Party invitation
Tea parties make a wonderful way to spend an afternoon, and a Victorian theme can make it really special.
It doesn't take much to bring that old-fashioned feel to your table. Pretty antique china cups and saucers are a must for a vintage feel, and look very effective even if they don't match - so you may find a collection at thrift shops.
Flowers, especially roses, look lovely on a table. The video below has some great ideas about how to decorate your table - and shows some simple ways to use flowers.
And to take with tea, try some prettily decorated cup-cakes - or design another special menu. If you are going to bake your own cakes, then there are lots of Victorian cake recipes available on the internet - or try here for some afternoon cake ideas.
Why not make the wording of the invite, and your handwriting, continue the vintage theme? Type out what you would like to say with an old-english type font - then copy it out with a fountain pen for authenticity. If you would like people to dress up, then remember to let them know in the invite. Perhaps you could ask everyone to wear vintage jewelry, or an antique hat? I think that would make your party feel very special.
You might want to read up a little bit about etiquette before your guests arrive, so you can play the perfect hostess. And even if your party is quite informal, it doesn't hurt to have a few polite topics of conversation up your sleeve.
Most of all enjoy! This is such a wonderful way to spend an afternoon that I am sure you will want to do it over and over.
