A tea party always brings joy to little girls. They love to dress up and hang out with their friends while enjoying tasty treats. You can even have a tea party inspired birthday bash for your daughter. It doesn’t require advanced event planning skills to plan a fun tea party. The key is to keep it festive and exciting.
You can introduce games to keep the guests entertained. Here are some exciting games for an awesome tea party.
Memory Game – Tea Party Edition
This is a variation to the typical memory game. Get a large serving tray. Provide each player a piece of paper and a pen. Fill the tray with tea party related items and cover it with a cloth. Uncover the tray and let each participant look at the objects for 10 seconds. Cover the tray and let the players write down as many objects as they can recall, The one who lists down the most items wins the game. These are some items you can put on the tray:
- A sugar cube
- Cookies and cakes
- A tea bag
- A teaspoon
- A teacup or saucer
- Colorful candies
- A tea ball infuser
Children love to play musical chairs. Tell the kids to sit down in chairs and to form a circle. You may choose chairs that are customized according to your theme. Once the music stops, the players must take a seat. Remove a chair after each round and whoever can’t sit down is eliminated.
You can also arrange enough chairs but the last kid to sit down is out.
Pin the Teacup on the Saucer
Draw a saucer on a piece of cardboard and cut out and color teacup shapes, one for each player. Each player takes turns attempting to pin the cup to the saucer while wearing a blindfold. The player who gets their teacup closest to the center of the saucer wins.
Teapot Relay Race
Use two plastic teacups, a bucket of water, and two smaller teapots or buckets. Let the players form two teams and have the kids transfer water from the bucket to the teapot using the cups. The first team to fill their pot is declared the winner.
Tea Bag Hunt
You can introduce this game at the beginning of the tea party like an ice breaker. Get small net bags and place a tea bag and a tiny wrapped candy inside each one. Hide the tea bags throughout the venue and have guests find them. The player who finds the most items wins. After that, you can distribute the tea bags to your guests for their first cup of tea. This game is best played outdoors. If you live in Morgantown, WV, then you can easily book an outdoor venue for the tea party.
Be sure to have some small prizes for the winners of the games. It is best to keep them simple so no one feels left out. There’s a lot of inexpensive stuff you can hand out as prizes. Buy some cute bookmarks, plastic tea sets, colorful pens, or customized chocolate bars.
