Honey Apple Tea Party
Honey Apple Tea Party Table Decorations The decorations can be as simple or elaborate as you would like. A light apple green tablecloth with light honey brown napkins would make a lovely table setting for this honey apple tea party. Stores like Target and Bed, Bath, and Beyond usually have inexpensive tablecloths and cloth napkins, so you can set a nice table without spending a lot of money. If planning a relaxed get together, paper napkins and plates are completely acceptable. Fall motif plates and napkins can make a nice table setting that your guest will enjoy. For a more formal honey apple tea party bone china cups and saucers are required. If you do not have enough, request that each of your guests bring their favorite cup and saucer to the tea.
For the centerpiece, place different types of apples in a large clear bowl. Insert leaves and intertwine boughs around the apples. Purchase 3 or 5 bees from a craft store along with long pipe cleaners. Twist the pipe cleaners so that they are not straight and glue one end to one of the bees. Insert the other end of the pipe cleaner into the bowl of apples. Repeat with each of the bees.
Placards for the apple honey tea party can be made using from small clay pots. Write the guests name on the clay pot and decorate with stickers of bees, apples, and honey. Plant a small apple scented geranium in each pot. The guests can take the plant home as one of the party favors.
