The Sweetest Kids Tea Party Ideas

by Tonya Staab

We have the sweetest kids tea party ideas including cookie decorating, desserts, and even a guest appearance by a Disney princess.

I had the pleasure of helping Mike’s daughter plan our grandaughter’s 4th birthday party recently. We put together so many pretty things that I had to share our ideas.

Kids tea party ideas

As you can see from the image above, we set up the tea party on the back patio. We put together pallets to make a long table which we put tablecloths over, and then added furry cushions around the pallet table for the kids to sit on.

We incorporated a lot of things that we already had for decorating the table, such as a grass runner, food stands, and vases.

What activities do you do at a tea party?

Besides eating a lot of miniature foods, and sipping tea (or lemonade), there are other fun ideas you can incorporate into your kid’s tea party.

Invite a Disney Princess to tea

Invite a Disney Princess to enjoy tea time with the kids. It’s an excellent chance for photo ops, and the kids will love interacting with their favorite princess.

Tea party cookie decorating

I put together a cookie decorating tray for the kids. It was full of all kinds of sweet treats.

What do you serve at a child’s tea party?

Aside from tea (or lemonade in our case), you will want to serve both savory and sweet finger foods.

We went a little heavy on the desserts but did offer a few savory and healthy options too.

First up, we had a tiered tray with miniature frosted cookies, mini stacked cakes, and cheesecake bites.

We also offered brownies, which I set on my Easter bunny food stand.

In keeping with the color scheme, cotton candy was served in individual cups.

For healthy options, there were vegetable sticks with pink ranch in individual cups (which I forgot to take a photo of). There were also watermelon balls with strawberries on tea party picks.
