Homemade Tea Party Invitations
Yes, it's a tea party. The very idea to me conjures up images of Alice in Wonderland, a sneaky looking cat with a huge grin, and a white rabbit with his pocket watch. Days gone by, or so I thought. The tea party is alive and kicking. Our children have them, The gals (or ladies) congregate now and then for one, they make good fundraising events, and they still have that big one in Boston. So here is our section of hand made invitations for the Tea Party.
Tea party invitation ideas
- Images or charms you might want to think about using when making your party invitations: Teacups, saucers, a kettle, tea bags (why not use the real thing) the Mad Hatter, Alice in wonderland. Don't forget you can always throw a coffee party.
- Get your party invitations printed on to a ceramic saucer. You can buy special paints to paint on to ceramics. You can grab a bunch of 2nd hand saucers from garage sales and op shops.
- Cut out your invitations into the shape of tea cups or tea pots.
- Buy a cool rubber stamp and stamp an image.
- Doily invitations: Print your invitations on round paper or card smaller than a paper doily. Glue your invitation to the center of the doiley.
- Mad hatters tea party - make it in the shape of a hat or pocket watch. Maybe even create a playing card of the queen of hearts and have the information on the reverse side.

These gorgeous invitations to a Garden Tea were made by with supplies that Alisa received in her Vintage Party swap goodies pack. We can see some classic vintage images of a fine young lady on the front of the invitation with an embellishment in the top right corner made up of ribbon, buttons and roses, so simple to do. The details are on the reverse side with a banner and image of a tea setting.
I made some tea cup cards that were used for invites. I had to do 100 of them. :)

These invitations were simple enough to make.
Beige card printed onto with the home printer on the inside. On the front of the card is a teacup that was hand drawn on to handmade paper from k-mart and cut. It is a very basic easy to draw a plain cup with no flashy bits on it. The writing on the inside of the card was done with word. There was an insert with so additional information about the Australia's Biggest Morning Tea which we were fundraising for.
These were our handmade tea party invitations and place cards for my daughter's "Tea for Two" (a second birthday party) I used stamps from Stampin' Up; some alphabet stamps from PSX; a roller stamp from 'stampin' around', some pink Bazzil linen cardstock and the 2peasinabucket flea market font for the invite and I used the same stamps on an invitation size envelope for the place cards.
