An Easter Tea Party for Four
With social distancing and stay at home orders in place, it can be hard to celebrate fun events like Easter. My daughter had bought a new dress for her annual ice skating team banquet, and she was so disappointed that it was cancelled this year. So I told her we would find a way for her to wear it so it wouldn’t go to waste. And so we decided to have an Easter tea party! If you follow this blog at all, you know I love to create tablescapes for special holidays or just for fun. And an Easter tea party was the perfect occasion to do so. For our party we used a lot of things we already had, and by incorporating a couple of new pieces, we were able to create a fun and whimsical tablescape that everyone can enjoy. And it was so much fun to dress up for once, after days of wearing yoga pants and pajamas all day. The girls had so much fun, and so did I!
An Easter tablescape is not complete without fresh tulips from our local grocery store (about the only place you can get fresh flowers right now). And my farmhouse-style pitcher vase is the perfect centerpiece.
Everything else for our table setting I already had, but I did decide to get these adorable Peter Rabbit salad plates from Pottery Barn (for under $25!). They add the perfect touch of whimsy to our tea party table setting. And they go perfectly with my Pottery Barn Cambria Dinner Plates.
My daughter insisted on pouring and serving the tea!
Easter Basket Gift Ideas
Of course an Easter tea party is not complete without filled Easter baskets! If you are a procrastinator like I am, it is not too late to get candy and gifts for your kids Easter baskets. I actually got our chocolate bunnies, eggs, and Peeps from Target by buying them on-line and picking them up in store. For fun we also picked up some bubbles and sidewalk chalk that are perfect for the kids. And every year the kids get a new stuffed bunny and a book to show them how special they are.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post and I hope you are able to have a wonderful Easter with your family too!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
