Tea party decor tips for summer

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


First of all, you need to highlight all the decorative areas of your tea party you will be focusing on.

Your list should include:

– Linen

– Crockery and cutlery

– Glassware

– Vases or other containers for your compositions

– Fresh flowers


Colour choices

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


Cutlery and crockery

Crockery and cutlery vary in both style and price. Plain versus decorative, glass versus ceramic, and coloured versus basic colours are all questions to ask. Again, keeping it simple will allow for more flexibility when it comes to hosting a tea party in the future. This is why so many people choose plain or even white glass dinnerware. If you’re concerned that white plates won’t show when placed on top of white tablecloths, you can always use coloured place mats to prevent this from happening. Silverware is also the most flexible option, generally suitable for almost any theme.



Now it’s time to plan your tea party decorations! Silver vessels are excellent for any style. There’s something about the way they sparkle that makes them such a winning addition to your decor. Silver containers also look beautiful with any type of floral arrangement, and in the summer you want to use bright flowers that add a nice pop of colour. Remember, you can use floral arrangements that consist of bright flowers only or you can mix bright and pastel shades if you prefer. Bright pink, orange, purple and yellow are all great options. If you’re looking for inspiration, ask your florist about their seasonal summer flowers.

These are some basic, yet effective decorative tips for your next summer tea party. Remember, when in doubt, you should always opt for something simple. The less clutter on your table, the more elegant your table will look.
