The first step when preparing a tea party is to start designing your tea party invitations or simply decide which model, color and theme to buy and who are the guests, of course. The second step is to plan your menu. A tea party menu isn’t an elaborate one; tea sandwiches, biscuits and cookies are usually served. Of course this isn’t necessarily a simple menu as you can plan putting together and cooking more varieties of tea sandwiches and cookies to appeal to all of your guests’ tastes.
A Victorian tea party
The tea party planning follows the general guidelines I gave above with a few more additions. For instance, scones are a must for a Victorian tea party with Devonshire cream, lemon curd or jelly or jams. You can find many interesting and simple recipes in cookbooks or the Internet, so it is rather simple to get your Victorian menu started.
Either indoors or outdoors, the tea party should not be stripped of music.
