For whatever reason, I always like to have some sort of sign on the door, welcoming my guests to the party. For the tea party, I used a teapot and teacups.
I found an image of a tea pot online for my template. I printed “Welcome to the Tea Party” in a fancy font, onto cute scrapbook paper. Then I cut out the teapot I found online, then traced that onto my scrapbook paper, then cut it out.
I did the same thing for the tea cups, except I put the name of each girl on the cup.
It turned out to be a cute decoration, and the girls each took the tea cup with their name on it home..
