Tea party lovers are always looking for wonderful ideas for a tea party and I think I found a cute idea to pass on. How about having a tea party with a tea party theme? I think young ladies and little girls would love taking tea with pretty tea party cookies don't you? Little cookies in the shape of tea cups and tea pots would be a delight to nibble on.

Let the tea party cookie cutters be the theme and serve some great tasting cookies with some great tasting hot tea. How about a Alice in Wonderland tea? You can even give cookie cutting as gifts to your guests too. Put on your best hat girls because we're having a ladies tea!

A Tea Parties is a formal, ritualized gathering for afternoon tea but it's a good excuse for conversations about life, exchanging recipes, and sharing holiday ideas too. Formal tea parties are often characterized by the use of prestige utensils, such as bone china or silver. The table is made to look its prettiest, with cloth napkins and matching cups and plates. In addition to tea, larger parties may provide punch, or in cold weather, hot chocolate. The tea is accompanied by a variety of easily managed foods: thin tea sandwiches, such as cucumber or tomato, cake slices, buns or rolls, and cookies are all common.
