Vintage Tea Party Ideas For A Fabulous Kids Tea Birthday Party!

kids tea party decor

The Vintage Tea Party is one of my favorites. And the kids tea birthday party theme is so popular amongst all little girls.

Actually, girls of all ages enjoy sipping tea from rose china tea cups and eating tiny tea sandwiches and scones with butter.

This vintage tea party can also be combined with the Fancy Nancy Party, Fairy Party, or Princess Party. Just about any girls birthday party can also be a tea party. So mix and match to find the perfect party theme for your little girl.

Kids Tea Birthday Party Invitations

Send out teapots with a fancy tag tied to the handle. It can say something like this...

"(Your child's name)is having her very own tea,
She'd like you to join her if you would please,
You'll have such a time with pinky held high,
It will be so much fun you'll leave satisfied."


Or make a homemade vintage tea party invitation. Use pink card stock and pink, purple, yellow, and white scrapbook paper for the tea pot.

Cut out a tea pot and glue to the pink card stock. Embellish with markers. Print, write, or use sticker to day..."You're Invited To A Tea Party" on the outside.

You can age the edges to look more vintage, or leave it for a clean crisp look.

Write all of your vintage tea party info inside. Embellish your homemade envelope with tea cup and tea pot stickers.

Or check out this cute tea party card on my Birthday Card page. It can be used for a kid tea party invitation as well.

Kids Tea Birthday Party Costumes

Have a trunk full of vintage dresses, hats, scarves, and gloves. You can find all these things at flea markets or thrift stores. Or ask friends to help you out with some vintage tea party costumes.

Embellish old high heels with glitter, rhinestones, pearls, or anything else you can come up with. This can also be an activity.

When the girls arrive, let them pick out a full outfit and then send them to a makeup station. Do their hair, makeup, fingernails, ect. Place a full length mirror where the girls can admire themselves from head to toe.

Set up a table with vintage tea party coloring pages. This keeps them busy until all girls arrive and have received their beauty treatment.

You can also request that the girls come in their favorite tea party outfit and go straight into the vintage tea party fun.

Kids Tea Birthday Party Decorations And Centerpieces

Tie balloons on the mailbox. This lets everyone know where the party is.

Cut out large teapots and teacups from thick poster boards. Look at coloring books for inspiration. Hot glue a garden stake on the back and place in yard.

Hang rose garlands around door. Intertwine pearl garlands and twinkle lights in them. You can also place a garden arch over the door entrance and embellish with flower garland, tulle, twinkle lights, and pearl garland. Make big bows out of the tulle and tie onto the arch.

Your colors will be the same as your china. If it's pink and green, then go with that. That's my favorite combo for a Vintage Tea Party.

But here are a few vintage tea party color combinations that are perfect for any little girl birthday party...

  • Pink and White
  • Pink and Cream
  • Pink and Purple
  • Pink and Yellow
  • Pink and Green
  • Pink and Robin's Egg Blue
  • Purple and Yellow
  • Yellow and Orange
  • Blue and White
  • Blue and Cream
  • Blue and Yellow
  • Pink, Purple, and Yellow
  • Purple and Green
  • Pink and Brown
  • Blue and Brown
  • Green and White
  • Green and Cream
  • Pink, Purple, and Turquoise

Start with a tablecloth that matches your color scheme. Place a lace tablecloth over that. Some great centerpiece ideas are...Fresh roses in a vase, teapots, teacups, gold or crystal candle holders with candles, rose petals, pearls, antique handbags, antique gloves, and feather boas. Display everything in a pleasing manner. You can elevate things with old books to really give that vintage tea party feel.

Wind rose garlands and pearl garlands down and around the chandelier. Hang a tulle canopy from the ceiling. You just start at the middle and swag tulle to all the corners. You can lay rose petals or twinkle lights in the tulle for extra drama.

You can also make flower balls. Purchase 3 Styrofoam balls about the size of a basketball. Hot glue flowers all around them. Top it off with a pretty ribbon bow. Hang them from the ceiling in staggering lengths.

If party is outside, you can place the table under a tree and make your own chandelier. Take all the parts out of an old chandelier. Spray paint it cream and sand it a bit to make it look old. Place candles where the bulbs used to be.

Drape a piece of tulle, satin material, or a sheet over the chairs. Tie tulle around the chair. Make a big bow in back. Hot glue roses and ribbons on to it.

For your vintage tea party ware, I would use real tea cups if the girls are old enough and paper tea party cups if they are younger. You can find tea cups and saucers at thrift stores, flea markets, garage sales, and friends and family. They do not have to be matchy matchy. Just make sure they are a pleasing combination. You wouldn't want red and black and pink and green. Keep the colors matching whatever color scheme you have chosen.

If you want to do a stunning vintage tea party table, but feel the girls are too little, create a main table and then have smaller tables for the little girls to sit at. You can keep the decorations for the little tables to a minimum without sacrificing any decor for the main table.

Have the girls sit it a circle. Play teatime music. When the music stops, the girl holding the teapot gets a prize from the antique hat box in the middle.

  • Teapot Charades

Place slips of paper in a teapot that have a word on them. Let the girls pick one and then act it out. Keep it simple and silly. If the girls can't read, then have pictures of things.

Let the girl strut their stuff. Give prizes for the best outfit, the craziest, the coolest, ect.
