Other Thoughts
1. (traditional) Go croquet - if it's a smaller party, a game of croquet is oh-so-tea party. For rules of croquet, click here.

2. (fun) Hat making - set up long tables and have guests create their own tea party hats. Party Hats Inc. out of San Diego is one such company who can help facilitate this type of team building activity.

3. (nouveau) Picnic style - Lay out blankets, lots of pillows and picnic baskets for each setting...stuff baskets full of goodies like tea cookies, cakes and finger sandwiches and include a thermos for hot tea and a sealable jug for iced tea.

4. (connoisseur) Do a tea tasting. Let guests taste the different intricacies of unique tea blends. Help them understand the value of loose teas, how to brew them and how to best taste them.
