A Successful Christmas Tea Party For Children


Home : Themes For Tea Parties : Christmas Tea Party For Kids

Planning is the key for a successful holiday tea party for your children.

Important questions before you start

What age group will your guests be?

What are their skill levels and interests?

Will there be girls, boys, or a mixed group?

How many adults will be helping?

What will be your main goals?

    For example, a get-together with Christmas games?

    Doing projects like making cookies or edible tree decorations?

    Learning good table manners?

    Writing letters to Santa?

What is your theme?

Some of the easiest themes for a Christmas tea party for kids include wrapping gifts, making tree decorations, stuffing Christmas stockings, dress-up and face painting (Santa’s elves and reindeer are popular).

Always plan on sticky fingers, spills, and possible breakage.

Choose your treats so that you can avoid extended clean-up after the party.

Since tea cannot be served in plastic, use inexpensive ceramic cups (check your thrift store or estate sales).

If it has been cooled to lukewarm, it may be served in holiday paper cups.

Which teas will you offer?

Most children prefer flavored green teas.

Have a collection of several green teas with different flavoring.

Let each child choose their own flavor by sniffing it first (if you are using teabags, you will have to open the paper or foil wrapping).

Always make the tea at half-strength for children by doubling the amount of water you would normally use.

What about possible allergies?

Talk to every parent before you plan your menu.

The most common allergens are peanuts, wheat, and milk, but some people are hyper-reactive to a single food like strawberries (for instance, jam or strawberry flavored green teas).

If your menu includes scones, check out these Christmas cranberry scones, and cranberry scones with 36 variations.

When to schedule your tea

The best times are after school, after an organization or church event, or a few days after a special holiday performance like the Nutcracker Ballet.

Make sure every child has a little something to take home, such as a small Christmas ornament or cookie to hang on the tree.

Have a happy Christmas tea party, and many more.
