When I was little, I remember going to a birthday “par-TEA”. It was so cute, and probably one of the only birthday parties I remember from my youth.
We had little bells to ring when we needed more tea (which I don’t think was really tea but who knows). Hats were worn as well and we ate the most delicious cookies. I don’t know why I remember this party so well. However, the tea party birthday has stuck with me, and inspired the designs below.

Burlap Tea Party Designs
If you know me, you know I love burlap. It’s great for everything. Plus, it’s really affordable and so you don’t have to worry about ruining it. I almost always do a design with burlap when I’m working on a new theme.
Chalkboard Tea Party Designs
Chalkboard is something else I love, and I really love how these designs turned out. The teal with the black chalkboard really pops!
Beyond the Invitation
Once you have the invite for the party, you’re off to a great start and ready to start adding little touches to make it even more special. Here’s what I recommend for each party. Now, you could go all out (which I completely support) but you don’t have to either. Keep it simple with these 3-4 things:
- Welcome Sign- people like to know they are in the right place!
2. Banner. Whether it’s happy birthday or something else this will make your house feel party ready.
3. Favor tags or stickers. Yeah, I know, do you really need favors? No, of course not, BUT, they are cute and if done right can be used! Plus, if you do this then there’s no real need for thank you cards.
4. Thank you cards. If you’re not going to give favors, then I do believe you should send thank you cards. Just my opinion, but really, it’s polite. Even for a kid’s birthday.
