Making the Perfect Tea Party

By Amanda Panda

I mentioned to my Grandma the other day that I was planning to throw a party and she came up with a suggestion I hadn’t even thought of – a tea party. How quaint!

If I were to throw a tea party it would be an elegant afternoon fête. We would definitely dress up – no self respecting Webkinz would have a tea party without hats, jewelry and gloves. Maybe I could ask my mom if she had any old hats and gloves I could use, or I could go to the dollar store and get some inexpensive pieces that my friends could take home with them.

My mother has a beautiful antique tea service and a collection of pretty tea cups, but if you’re worried about your good ones getting broken, you could always buy some mismatched cups from a secondhand shop, or use a toy tea set. I’d also need an attractive tray with small plates and napkins, and small forks and spoons.

There are lots of different types of tea I could serve, and lemonade or ice tea would be a sweet option for those who don’t want the real thing.

Finger sandwiches are de rigueur at a tea party (those are small sandwiches that you eat with your fingers – not sandwiches shaped like fingers!!!) And my grandma gave me her family recipe for scones so I could serve those with strawberry jam for dessert – just like the queen has with her tea (I think!)

This would be a marvelous idea for a party. It suits me to a tee, don’t you think?

    I think having a movie night, slumber party, or pool party would be better than having a tea party. That’s just my opinion you do whatever you want, Amanda Panda. =)

    That’s a great idea! But we need more cool clothes for the people that can’t afford ePoints. Like the shutter glasses! Alot of people want them but can’t afford them, and where to get it!

    I remember when I was little I used to have tea parties with my stuffed animals all the time! I always used a plastic toy tea set because we never had a real one. Now I really wanna have a tea party, only this time I could invite all my friends!
