An afternoon tea party is a great option if you’re tasked with planning a hen party! It’s sophisticated yet relaxed and offers lots of opportunity for decoration and styling.
Hen Party Table
There are so many ways to style your tea party table and we definitely suggest using your overall theme as a starting point for inspiration.
Rose Gold Sequin Table Runner
This sparkling runner is perfect for adding a glamorous touch to your hen party table. Lay over a white table cloth for a sophisticated look or for something a little more rustic, simply lay over a bare wood table like the above.
Pastel and Iridescent
Iridescent textures are bang on trend right now and we can’t get enough. Teamed with pastel hues you can create a beautiful, understated setting for your afternoon tea party. Opt for a mix of pearlescent cups, pastel paper plates and a sprinkling of iridescent table confetti for a unique hen party look.
Mint & Gold
We love the combination of fresh mint and gold, it’s the perfect balance of classy and colourful! Our pick and mix collection features pretty white pieces with large gold polka dots which work so well alongside mint ombre and gold caligraphy. Complement with little cakes topped with mint frosting, you could even add a speckle of edible gold lustre too!

Keep it Classic
Keep your afternoon tea traditional with classic floral elements from our truly scrumptious and truly romantic collections. If you wanted to add more of a hen party vibe you could pull in pastel pieces from our Team Bride range like these pretty paper napkins with rose gold script.
Hen Party Favours
Whether you choose sweet treats or something homemade, make your favours look the part by dressing them in attractive vessels. If it’s metallics you’re looking for then our polka treat cones are ideal for filling with edible delights. We love the idea of giving your guests something homemade, why not have a go at making your own alcohol or jam? They’d look great in our mini jars with handles!
Tea Party Decorations
It may sound bizarre, but your table centrepiece doesn’t actually need to be limited to your table. Over-hanging installations often have much more impact! Why not suspend a honey comb tassel above your table for an unusual focal point!

Elegant Party Décor
If you’re keeping to a classic ‘tea party’ theme then these Truly Romantic pinwheels would make a beautiful display for your party room. Hang in clusters of three or secure lots together to make a unique backdrop.
Afternoon Tea Menu
We all know the main attraction is the food when it comes to a tea party, well the tea too but mainly food. We won’t go into too much detail here as there are clear menu staples; your mini cakes, scones, macarons, pots of tea and petit fours. These were a few tea party delights that caught our eye… how cute are those pastel doughnuts, they’d work perfectly with our wooden ‘yum’ toppers.
