Tea Parties

Tea Parties + Crafts = FUN!


When Leah and I host our book themed tea parties, all the kids like to make crafts. Let’s be clear on this one question I am asked all the time: BOYS LOVE CRAFTS TOO.

You see the collage above and the two masks? Made by BOYS. Meticulously decorated just like any girl would. In fact, this party goer was dressed as Iron Man. LOVE!

In the second of our How To videos, today we’re showing you how to make a tea pot picture frame. These frames can be used for many different types of parties:

  • Birthday parties
  • Baby showers
  • Bridal showers
  • Mother’s Day tea
  • etc.

When the craft is complete, plop your fave photo inside for an adorable keepsake. Here’s our video on how to get it done.

How cute is that little tea pot?

Thanks to Oriental Trading Co for supplying us with crafts to share with you. What’s your go to craft for parties?

How to Make Tea Party Crafts with Oriental Trading Company

As you know, when I’m not reading books, I’m hosting tea parties with my friend, Leah. Every good tea party MUST have a craft, next to tea, it’s the best part of a party!

We’ve hosted many parties and always turn to Oriental Trading Company to order the best crafts. Recently I realized that when I post photos of the parties, I always show the finished craft. I thought “Why don’t I make a video to show you just how easy it is to make a craft from Oriental Trading Company!”

With that in mind, I gathered some supplies, asked my friend Leah to help, and we made a series of how-to videos. Over the next few weeks, I’ll share more videos with you. Here’s the first:
