An Iced Tea Party

Sunny, bright August is a great time to host an iced tea party. Cool foods accompanied by lots of iced tea make a memorable summer day that will soon become a summer tradition. This is a great party to have in the garden, park, or by a sunny window.

Please email any suggestions you would like to pass on to other tea party hosts to and they will be added to this page or any other appropriate tea party page.

Iced Tea Party Table Decorations

An iced tea party is a great way to spend a casual afternoon with family and friends. The recipes for this tea party consist of cool, light summer foods that reflect the bright sun of the summer season.

To keep the party easy and relaxed, purchase an inexpensive bright floral table cloth at a discount store along with coordinating paper napkins and paper plates. If possible use crystal glasses for the iced tea. Pretty cut glass tea glasses will also look pretty on the table.

For the centerpiece, visit your local garden center and purchase potted rosemary plants, hopefully, they will have the ones look like small trees. Purchase a large one for the center and enough small ones so that each guest will be able to take one home as a summer herb tea party favor. Simply arrange the small rosemary plants around the large one. Tie yellow ribbons around the plants for added color in the center of the table.

Placards for the summer herb tea party can be made using herbal bouquets, white cardstock, green felt pen, stickers depicting herbs and a bright ribbon. Cut rectangles from the cardstock and write the guest's name on the card with the green felt pen. Decorate the white areas with the herbal stickers. Make or purchase herbal bouquets. Nestle the name card in the bouquet and place one placard bouquet on each of the yellow napkins.


Iced Tea Party Favors
