Throw a Tea Party for Any Occasion

You can use our Tea for Two favors during the tea party, or send them home with your guests!

Tea parties are versatile enough to be used for many different occasions, from kids’ birthday parties to bridal showers, and much more! What’s more, tea parties can take on a completely different vibe depending on the food served, the entertainment, and the location. Decorate with stuffed animals and serve peanut butter and jelly sandwiches cut into fun shapes for a perfect little girl’s birthday party. Or set up in the garden, bring out the good tea set, and serve afternoon tea sandwiches with cucumber, smoked salmon, or chicken salad for a classy shower celebrating the bride-to-be. And with all the delicious (and maybe not so nutritious) desserts you’ll likely serve, it’s important to note that tea has many health benefits! It can help with endurance during exercise, and has less caffeine than coffee. It is also loaded with antioxidants – some studies show it has more than 10 times the antioxidants of fruits and veggies!

One of our employees, Mandy, put together a list of tips for how to throw a tea party that your guests are sure to love:

1) Pick a theme. Tea parties can vary immensely from a casual sit-down to a whimsical Alice and Wonderland-themed event, or even a black tie affair. Make sure that the theme fits your venue, and that all steps of planning the party keep this vision in mind.

2) Set the date and send out the invitations. Be sure to give your guests plenty of time to clear their schedules and RSVP. Some people say these can be sent as little as two weeks in advance, while others stress that they should be sent at least a month early. The timing may depend on the type of invitees (are your friends planners who have the next few months of their lives scheduled, or are they spur-of-the-moment types?). It can also depend on the formality of the event (black tie events require more advance preparations on the part of guests, whereas open-house style events don’t need as much lead time). Ultimately, you want to send them out as early as you possibly can, within reason.

3) Choose your tea-related accessories and favors. Make sure to order well in advance. We love this garden party baby shower theme for outdoor tea party baby shower decorations! Also, you’ll want to send your guests home with favors that are appropriate for your theme, so we recommend these kitchen favors.

4) Read and review the best tea for you, or purchase a variety of tea for guests to sample. Check out these tips for selecting the best tea for you.

5) Decide what types of food you’ll serve. You can find recipes for tons of tea sandwiches, finger foods, and pastries just by searching online. If your tea party will be a heartier luncheon, serving soups, salads, and entrees, make sure to include that information on the invitations so your guests know what to expect.

6) When setting up for the event, accompany the brewed teas with cream, sugar, lemon slices, and honey.

7) Once the guests arrive, relax and enjoy!

First Birthday Smash Cakes!

smash cake birthday

Jennifer’s son Gioivanni is enjoying getting away with making a mess of his 1st birthday smash cake!

Your child’s first birthday is an important and special milestone in their life and yours. It is a celebration filled with many traditions for your child, guests and you as parents to enjoy. One tradition that has become increasingly popular and trendy is the idea of a smash cake for the birthday boy or girl. A smash cake party has two cakes, a larger version for the adult guests to enjoy and a smaller, single serve version just for the guest of honor! Many bakeries will design smash cakes for you that replicate the larger cake but you can easily make a homemade version if that works better for you. Although having the smash cake done by a professional will add to the presentation of your party, remember this cake has one purpose and that is to be grabbed, bitten and smashed to pieces by your child’s fists, fingers or face! No fork required!

Smash Cake Tips:

  • Obviously this is going to be messy business so you’ll want to be prepared. If the weather is warm enough and you can plan an outdoor party this will make your cleanup much easier. If you are going to have your party indoors, secure something under the highchair or use one of our high chair decorating kits to catch the crumbs and chunks of cake that will no doubt find their way to the floor.
  • Think carefully when picking a frosting color. Pink frosting smeared all over a little girl is adorable, and there are some colors that simply work. But avoid red frosting because it has the potential to make your smash cake moment look more like something  out of a horror movie, and chocolate frosting…well that might not look appetizing smeared all over your child’s face.
  • Also make sure the frosting is buttercream. Fondant just doesn’t smash very well. It will also help to let your cake get to room temperature so it’s soft and easy for your birthday boy or girl to demolish.
Smash Cake girl

Evelyn made sure he daughter Eva was pretty in pink on her 1st birthday!

  • Remove any candles, cookie sticks or decorative picks before serving the smash cake.
  • This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity so make it the best Kodak moment you can. If possible, create a solid color backdrop behind the birthday boy or girl so they stand out among their surroundings. To capture a great shot, take the photo from the same height as the highchair (or wherever the 1-year-old eats the cake).
  • Save the smash cake for toward the end of the party so you give your child a much needed birthday bath soon after the guests leave. If that timing doesn’t work for you at least have a second outfit on hand.

Smash cakes create a fun moment for everyone to enjoy, not to mention some great photos for the family album. Let’s face it-everyone really looks forward to seeing the birthday child covered in cake. With a little planning you can be prepared for this messy and memorable rite of passage!

The Importance of Celebrating a Birthday

Zodiac - WesternHave you ever wondered why we celebrate birthdays? A birthday commemorates the day of the year when you were born and in most cultures around the world it is celebrated with birthday cakes, parties, and feasts with friends and family. It is a happy occasion to celebrate the joy of life itself and to reflect on personal goals and accomplishments. The social custom of birthday celebrations is something that we partake in without a second thought. Interestingly, this little piece of conventional wisdom is actually an astrological event. In fact, from an astrological point of view it is unwise to not take this day seriously. Every year on your birthday (sometimes a day earlier or later) the Sun is in the same position it was in the day you were born. This is significant because it represents your astrological New Year, and the position of the planets are said to play a key role in your life events of the coming year. Over the course of the year, the Sun’s path across the celestial sphere passes through twelve divisions of celestial longitude that we call the Zodiac. However, other cultures have a different interpretation of the cosmos. Let’s take a look at the Eastern vs. Western approach to the astrological birthday calendar.

Chinese vs. Western Astrology:

Period of Time: Western astrology is broken down on a month-by-month scale. It is believed that people within the same month, or zodiac sign, will have the same traits. Chinese astrology on the other hand depicts signs by years and indicates that people born in the same year will share the same traits.

Calendars of the Moon and Sun: Chinese astrology bases beliefs arranged by the phases of the moon, or a lunar calendar. Each month begins with a new moon and lasts for an approximate time.  However, the western calendar is derived from the Earth’s orbit around the Sun and therefore each month begins on a a set date and can last between 28 to 31 days.

Zodiac Signs: Western astrology ascribes to a season-based zodiac that is represented by constellations. On the contrary, Chinese astrology signs were derived from myth. The story goes Zodiac - Chinesethat during the creation of the calendar, God had all of his creatures run a race. The first twelve species to finish the race became the signs of the Chinese zodiac.

Phases vs. Modes of the Moon: The phase of the Moon at the time of birth is what Chinese astrology believes impacts a person’s demeanor. New moon, Waxing Moon, Full Moon and Waning Moon are the four lunar phases. New Moon types are adventure seekers, Waxing Moon types are hard-working, Full Moon people appreciate protocol and are very diplomatic while Waning Moon personalities value a peaceful environment. Three modes, Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable make up western astrology. Each mode is linked to four signs and is said to determine an individual’s temperament. Cardinal signs are born leaders, Fixed types are hard-working, and Mutable signs value deep interpersonal connections.

The Elements: Five elements make up the world for Chinese astrology: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood. In their lunar calendar, each element has a 2-year period to influence life events based on their key characteristics. Fire means excitement, Earth creates a secure foundation, Metal creates order, Water forms emotional bonds and Wood inspires exploration. Only four elements are identified in western astrology: Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Each element in this case is associated with threes signs and influences the psychological characteristics of individuals. Those associated with Fire are impulsive, Earth signs are practical, Air signs value intellect and Water signs are ruled by their emotions.

From China to North America, birthdays are celebrated everyday and everywhere. Birthdays symbolize milestones that are important celebrations in everyone’s life. The traditions, beliefs, and festivities may be different but the events and reasons to celebrate them are the same. We only have a limited number of birthdays so it is important to celebrate each one to the fullest!

What is something you hope to accomplish before your next birthday?

Capture the Magic of Birthday Moments

Your child’s birthday celebration is a special moment you undoubtedly want to preserve for years to come. There is something to be said about capturing those occasions in a photograph and being able to gaze at an image and having it evoke memories and emotions in you, feelings that may fade over time. With a picture, you will never forget something that you want to remember, and you will always be able to remind yourself of that memory. These moments only happen once, so capture the magic of your child’s birthday by taking the best photographs possible.

Birthday Girl and Cake

Evelyn captured this sweet moment of her daughter Eva enjoying her birthday cake!

Tips on Taking Great Birthday Photos:

  • Keep it close – Stand close enough to the birthday child so they fill the frame of your camera. This will help to eliminate many visual distractions created by party guests and will truly capture the joy on their face.
  • Adopt a child’s perspective – It is important to get low when taking photos of children and to not take them from a standing position looking down. Take photos from the eye level of your subject.
  • Add variety – Take shots from a variety of focal lengths and angles to create interesting photographs. These small adjustments will ensure you have a more playful and dynamic group of party photos.
  • Capture the little things – Take photos of the cake, party decorations, table decor, etc. Again, be sure to fill the frame with them on some shots and they will look great in the birthday album dispersed among images of people. Also, you might find this easier to do before the chaos of the party begins.
  • Shoot candidly to capture moments of children interacting and laughing.
  • During the gift opening have the birthday boy or girl take a picture with each of their friends and the gift they received. This is a great way to keep track of who gave what gifts for the thank you cards, so nobody has to be in charge of keeping a list. Also, send out the thank you notes with the photo of your child and his/her friend included as a memento of a wonderful birthday celebration!
  • Most importantly, keep your camera handy at all times and snap away freely! You want to be able to capture special moments with seconds notice. Also, you can’t have too many photos of the event, but it’s easy to end up with too few!

Happy Birthday Oreo Cookie!

Going by the slogan of “milk’s favorite cookie,” Oreo cookies are an American classic. They’ve had plenty of time to secure that spot for themselves; Oreo cookies are officially 100 years old today!

Oreo was founded on this day 100 years ago in Chelsea, New York and have been a staple cookie for Americans ever since. While there have been some changes in the design and a few variations in flavors, the original Oreo is, for the most part, very much the same Oreo cookie that was introduced in 1912.

Mickey Mouse Cupcakes

In honor of Oreos’ 100th birthday, we thought we’d share some fun ideas of different things you can do with Oreos for your next birthday party:

  1. Mickey Mouse cupcakes! These are a super easy and super adorable way to decorate your frosted cupcakes for a kids’ birthday party, especially if you’re having a Mickey Mouse themed birthday party.  Or you can add a pink frosting bow to the top of the large Oreo and this treat matches perfectly with a Minnie Mouse kids’ birthday party theme! You can jazz them up a bit by using red or pink frosting also.
  2. Using the same basic idea as the Mickey Mouse cupcakes, you can play with the placement of the ears a little bit to create monkey cupcakes for a monkey birthday party.
  3. If the party is Oreo themed, go all out and make an Oreo shaped cookie cake.
  4. Make Oreo pops. These are so easy to make, and make a serious impression! Just twist apart the Oreos, melt some white chocolate and dip one end of a lollipop stick in it, place that end of the stick between the two halves of the Oreo, and press the Oreo cookie closed. In a few minutes the white chocolate will harden and you’ll have an Oreo pop that’s ready for decorating! Once all of the Oreo pops are assembled, dip each one into the melted white chocolate and then place flat on some wax paper. Now’s the fun part: use your favorite edible confetti, sprinkles, or even dragees if you like. You can also try drizzling some melted milk or dark chocolate in fun patterns.

However you decide to use Oreos at your next event, it’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser, as it has for 100 years now! Let us know, what’s your favorite way to eat an Oreo?
