You Will Need: unfinished porcelain cake stand (this one is from Michaels), Time for Tea printable (download below), white acrylic paint, brush, Mod Podge

First, paint the entire cake stand, except for the top, with the white acrylic paint. Line your paper to be centered on top of your cake stand. Flip the cake stand over and use a pencil to draw a circle, around the cake stand, on to your paper. Cut the circle out of the paper. Brush Mod Podge onto the back of the paper and gently place the paper onto the top of the cake stand. Push out any air bubbles. Turn the cake stand over, on a flat surface, and place some heavy books on top. This will help the paper from bubbling as it dries. The last step, once the glue has dried, is to brush over the entire stand with Mod Podge to seal it. This cake stand is not food safe, and should not come into direct contact with food.

A classic Tea Party requires pretty tea party hats. To help your guests look their best, provide supplies to decorate these mini hats. Decorating small tea party hats is a great party activity or you can pre-decorate them and give them out as party favors. These hats also fit 18″ dolls if you are hosting a girls and dolls tea party.

First, cut out 4 circles approximately 2 inches wide. Take one of the circles and place glue on the bottom third. Roll the circle together to create a bud. Place glue on another crepe paper circle and roll it with the bud. Continue adding the remaining 2 circles to create a small rose bud.

I have an easy flower makeover for you today with three simple flower arrangement ideas all from the same bunch of flowers — three ways to create three different looks. The secret to this makeover is the containers.


There is nothing wrong with buying flowers, trimming the ends, and placing them in a vase. In fact, I kind of like the whimsical feeling of this one! But if you want a more polished look, grab a collection of your favorite vases or containers and follow a few simple steps. I’ve used a set of tiny galvanized tins, eclectic vintage vases, and (my favorite) soda pop bottles. When picking vases, find a collection that coordinates. For example, the soda pop bottles are all different but they all have yellow or red labels. Same with the vases, they are all clear glass but different shapes. This will give variety to your arrangement without looking hodgepodge.


For these arrangements I went to a local floral shop and picked flowers from their selection of loose flowers. Picking flowers this way allows you to get flowers that coordinate and you can buy as many stems as you need. I chose: white garden roses, white ranunculus, yellow billy balls, red anemones, dusty miller, white dahlias, and feverfew.


Now that you have vases and flowers, get some clippers and start arranging. Here are three techniques for arranging with each of the different collection of vases. First, the tins. For this arrangement pick two of the flowers (feverfew and dusty miller) and alternated bunches of each in the vases. Cut the stems all about the same height and fill up each tin pretty full.



For the collection of vintage bottles, use a variety of flowers (red anemones, billy balls, ranunculus, and garden roses) and accented with dusty miller. In this arrangement you can vary the height of the flowers to create a looser look.



For the soda pop bottles choose a variety of flowers, put only one type of flower in each bottle, and cut the stems all the same height. Doing so creates a more uniform look that shows off the cute bottle labels and the bright happy flowers.




Seriously, these are so quick and easy that your kids can even help you. Be on the lookout for sets of vases that you can pull out on a moment’s notice. As you plan your next party or get together, think about other unique containers you can use to tie in your theme. Teacups, clay pots, vintage pitchers, mugs, milk glass, cans? The possibilities are endless!
