A christening or naming day is such an important celebration for your little one. Share the day with loved ones by hosting an afternoon tea, it doesn’t have to be straight after the ceremony, if you feel things are a little hectic then why not wait a week or so before you throw the party. Here’s a few of our favourite afternoon tea themes for this charming event.
Keep it simple with a crisp white pallet. Our white birdcage cake stand is a great point of inspiration for the rest of the party. Fill the stand with all sorts of afternoon tea treats like vanilla cupcakes topped with buttercream, dressed in delicate butterfly cupcake wrappers or toppers. Accessorise your tea party table with favours like our white heart bubbles, they look lovely and offer a bit of fun to smaller guests. In terms of decorations keep it fresh with white accents like our white cotton fabric bunting, each alternate flag has a lace edging adding an elegant touch to your decorations.
Our porcelain silver tableware range offers an elegant theme for an afternoon tea. The tablecover and napkins feature a lace inspired pattern which will add lovely detail to your party table. Use the larger porcelain silver plates to serve finger sandwiches and small cakes, the smaller porcelain silver plates can be handed out to your guests so they can help themselves to your afternoon tea selection. Add a pretty touch to your plates by dressing them with porcelain silver doilies.
Create a classic-style afternoon tea with our porcelain blue range. It features stunning paper tableware in a blue and white porcelain print. Sweet treats can be served on blue large paper plates whilst guests can help themselves with blue small paper plates in three beautiful patterns. The porcelain blue party teapot centrepiece can be filled with fresh or fabric flowers to create a pretty focal point on your party table.
Alice in Wonderland is a timeless classic for an afternoon tea party theme. Our truly alice tableware range features all sorts of interesting and unique party pieces. Start off by creating your place settings with truly alice paper cups and illustrated paper plates. The cups feature delightful little teacup handles and saucers. Next use the beautifully illustrated tableware to serve your afternoon tea; our truly alice key placecards feature the words “eat me” and would be perfect placed next to your party treats. We have a selection of ways to show off your bakes; place fairy cakes in our truly alice mini cake domes or upon our truly alice teapot cake stands. Top off larger bakes like our personalised truly alice cake with our mad party picks!
Put on a truly scrumptious afternoon tea with our truly scrumptious tableware! Line your plates and platters with vintage style napkins and patterned party paper doilies before piling on your tea party treats, add a touch of colour with our canapé flags. Our teapot party centrepiece makes a stunning visual for the party table when filled with fresh flowers. Yellow and white roses look so perfect!
