    Party Planning Checklist

    Flowers are Essential

    Flowers are an essential part of an Afternoon Tea Party. Don’t spend a lot of money on flowers, if you have anything pretty in your garden. They only have to last one afternoon, so use what you have. Trailing ivy can look lovely, fern leaves and ornamental grasses, mixed in with carnations or roses, if you have them.

    Don’t overdo it if any of guests have allergies!
