Disclosure: I am an ambassador for World Market. All opinions are 100% my own.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen sneak peek of the Downton Abbey Tea Party I threw a few weeks ago for some special ladies in my life! My 3-year-old daughter absolutely loves tea parties and I thought it would be fun to throw a fancy affair for her along with my mom, grandma and aunt. It was a wonderful event to share with the ladies in my family, we had an absolute blast talking about Downton Abbey, sipping our tea and eating delicious food!
I wanted to share some pics from the party and give you a few little tips and tricks. I found all my Downton Abbey accessories at World Market and paired them with a few of my own things.
I didn’t have any placements that went with the tea party decor, so did a little DIY project and cut the Downton Abbe Wrapping Paper into circles and used it as a deceptive piece. Cheap, easy and it added another dimension to the table.
The Downton Abbey Tea Blend was absolutely delicious. Everyone at the party raved about it, it has a really sweet and savory blend and it’s one that I will buy again.
I wasn’t able to try the scones or the spreads due to my food allergies, but they were a hit. The lemon curd was everyone’s favorite and they all said how decadent the scones were. I’ll tell ya this, no one refused to take the left overs home!
When putting together my place settings, I like to use several layers to keep the eye moving and add dimension to the table. For this party I used DIY placements, two different complementing plates, a napkin, favor and tag.
A tea party just wouldn’t be the same without shortbread cookies. And is that tin not adorable?
I love having an activity at a party. These Downton Abbey Christmas Crackers made great table decor and were a fun way to keep the guests entertained. They come prepackaged with a variety of Downton Abbey goodies and trivia questions. Each guests received a different favor and it was fun to go around the table to see which one everyone got.
And at the end of the party, each guest went home with a DA Tote filled with a collector’s cup and yummy leftovers :)
