We have curated the best Halloween themed party ideas right here. Take a look at all of the fun you can have for your Halloween tea party at home.
How to Throw a Halloween Tea Party
The first thing you want to have for your party this Halloween will be pumpkins galore. Small pumpkns or large pumpkins are a great go-to item to decorate, carve, and eat!
Next, when you are throwing a halloween tea party, you will want to think of what kind of tea you want to serve of course. Here are a few ideas for teas or tea alternatives for your halloween party:
Pumpkin Spice Tea
Tea with Cinnamon and Pumpkin Spice Added
Tea with Honey
It is also fun to think of names for your tea. My favorite name is a “witch’s brew” tea.
The third major item that you will want to think about is the halloween menu. The party food is something to which your guests will be looking forward. The best part of a halloween party is creating original food items that will be spooky and fun.
Since it is a Halloween party, guests will be expecting to find “finger sandwiches” and something sweet such as cupcakes with their tea as well.
Picking the Food for a Halloween Tea Party
Let’s face it, the food is pretty much the star of the show of most parties. When it comes to kids, they want to know “what are we eating?” or “when are we eating?” Every mom knows these questions quite familiarly.
The best part about a Halloween party is that you can get creative with lots of different food items for your Halloween tea party.
Starting with appetizers before the tea, the tea itself, tea sandwiches, fruit or vegetables to pari, and finally the cookies and/or cupcake dessert options.
Now that you have the basic outline for what to serve, let’s get into the details of an actual menu. Speaking of menu, be sure to create unique names for food items that go along with the Halloween theme.
It can be a plain old everyday food item, but if you give it a spooky name, it can be a total game changer!
