* Disclosure: Big thanks to Cadbury and MomSelect for sending me a party kit to host my own High Tea Party. Our “guests” all had a blast! Although I did receive promotional items for the purpose of a review, all thoughts and opinions remain my own and were not influenced in any way.
I would love to have been able to invite you all to our recent Cadbury High Tea Party, but my little ole’ apartment definitely would not hold everyone. However, since you couldn’t actually be here for it, I thought I would give you a peek into all the fun we had!
My 10 year old daughter (my youngest) is a girly girl all the way. She and her BFF’s love to dress up, experiment with makeup, and they ADORE parties! My daughter couldn’t be more excited when I told her we would be hosting a Cadbury High Tea Party complete with a tiny tea set for 6, frilly fascinators and hats in a variety of bold and beautiful colors, tasty tea party tidbits, and of course, the star of the show… the Blue Bunny Cadbury Ice Cream Bars!!
Our guests arrived dressed for the occasion, and upon arrival, chose their favorite hat eager to start the party. After they “ooo’d and aaah’d” over how cute they each looked, we got down to some serious tea and treats. Our menu for the day – tea sandwiches made of tuna salad, chicken & apple salad, veggie cream cheese, and PB&J, banana crumble muffins, pink lemonade sugar cookies, black bean and avocado salsa with tortilla chips, iced Citrus Punch, and a variety of herbal hot teas.
Along with the occasional giggles, there was also plenty of chewing to be heard … they thoroughly enjoyed the tasty tidbits that were made especially for their tea party. But, they could hardly wait for the “main event” … the Cadbury ice cream bars! They had 4 varieties to choose from: Vanilla Chocolate, Royal Dark (my favorite), Carmello, and the most popular choice, English Toffee.
The girls were enjoying each other’s company so much, they really didn’t need activities to keep them entertained. Although, you could definitely try a game of croquette, a teaspoon race, or the reading of tea leaves at your next tea party. Lots of smiles and laughs were had over deciding who had the best British accent, who held their tea cup properly with “pinky out” (which apparently is not proper etiquette after all), and unfolding our napkins to place across our laps before tea. And although they were not on our menu, I can’t tell you how many times I heard the words “scone” and “crumpet” in one day.
