Fancy summer tea party tips

Summer is the perfect season for parties and spending time outside. If you want to entertain guests this summer and you want to transform a simple tea into something even more classy, here are some decorating tips!

Firstly, you need to highlight all the areas on which you will be focusing. Your list should include:

  • Linens
  • Crockery and cutlery
  • Glassware
  • Vases or other vessels for your arrangements
  • Fresh flowers

Now that you have your list, it’s time to decide what colours and styles you would like. Plain white or off-white linens are handy because you have the freedom to use them no matter the colour scheme you choose. You can always add colourful overlays if you like.

Crockery and cutlery vary in style as well as price. Plain versus decorative, glass versus ceramic, and colourful versus basic colours are all questions you need to ask yourself. Again, keeping it simple will allow more flexibility when it comes to hosting future parties. This is why so many people choose plain glass or even white crockery. If you are worried that the white plates will not show up when placed on top of the white linens, you can always use colourful place mats to prevent this from happening. Silver cutlery is also the most flexible of options since it generally goes with just about any theme.

Now it’s time to plan your décor! Silver vessels are excellent for classing up any party. There is something about the way that they shine which makes them such a winning addition to the décor. Silver vessels also look lovely with any type of flower arrangement and, in summer, you want to use bright blooms that will add a lovely splash of colour. Remember, you can use flower arrangements that consist only of bright blooms or you can combine bright and pastel shades if you prefer. Bright pink, orange, purple, and yellow are all excellent choices. If you are looking for inspiration, ask your florist about their seasonal summer flowers.
