Kitchen Tea, Please

Any excuse to gather with your favourite friends and family is cause for a celebration. But a kitchen tea? Even better! It’s simply the perfect way to celebrate your big day while giving everyone a chance to talk, laugh and gift the bride-to-be with some much needed life accessories. Planning a kitchen tea should be very exciting and making sure to include these elements will ensure it is a success:

Invite Your Favourite Girls

The success of your kitchen tea depends on the company you keep, every single time, so be sure to make that list comprehensive! Begin by choosing or making invitations that reflect your theme and then ensuring all the little details like venue, time, date and gifting ideas etc. are all easy to spot. Traditionally, it is held at the mother-of-the-bride’s home, however, many people are now choosing other places like a best friend’s home or even a specialised party venue.

Beautify With Flowers

Cheerful blooms are essential any time two or more women gather, and you can decorate your kitchen tea with beautiful floral arrangements that set off the theme. You can also match it to the colour scheme for her wedding if you prefer. Add little touches such as matching ribbon bows to highlight the beauty of each bouquet or table decoration.

Keep The Fun Going With Games

Everyone loves playing games at parties and you can make it even more fun by planning for prizes. Ask your guests to bring a favourite recipe in exchange for a candle, or you can create a question and answer game that includes details about your guests such as who is wearing the most jewellery. Plan a guest gift for each winning answer such as a pretty bouquet or a vase for everyone to take home.

When you take the time to plan a kitchen tea, you can rest assured that everyone will have a good time. From setting the scene with delicate flower arrangements to ensuring each guest leaves feeling appreciated and having had a memorable time, you will make a big impression through every little detail that everyone will remember fondly for years to come.
