Thanksgiving Tea Party

Thanksgiving Tea Party

With the holidays just around the corner, what better way to celebrate with friends and family than with a Thanksgiving Tea Party? Today I’m sharing a great menu along with recipes and tips for planning a wonderful afternoon tea.

The Table

Decorating your table can be as simple as adding a few pumpkins in assorted sizes along with some greens. I’m using white pumpkins and Eucalyptus leaves as my centerpiece. I added a warm, dark brown tablecloth that blends beautifully with my china to make a welcoming tablescape for my guests.
