If your little boy is quite the dapper dude, then an afternoon tea party might be just his thing. But how to make it masculine? Say no to traditional flowers & pastels you’d find at a typical tea party and opt for natural foliage, patterns inspired by menswear garments, games of croquet and bow ties to boot. Let the little guys enjoy each other’s company and relish in the fun in an utterly refined way! Images by Danielle McCann Photography!
Today party themes can be branded throughout the event by designing a consistent “logo” and carrying the graphic throughout on water bottles, invitations, signage and party favors.
BRINGING IT ALL TOGETHER
A dessert bar is the perfect place to bring all of your party elements together. Incorporate birthday signs, decor pieces, waterbottles and dessert treats all on one table. It’s a visual wow factor for friends.
Extravagant cakes aren’t just for weddings anymore. Here the baker created an artful confection inspired by the little boy’s argyle bow tie and vest. Kids will love it!
What’s cake without cupcakes? A must for any children’s party, cupcake artisans today can get pretty crafty with fondant, as shown by the cupcakes below.
DRESSING THE PART
Make your theme even more obvious by encouraging guests to dress the part! Use wording on your invitations that suggest an attire of dapper garments of bow ties, vests and hats welcome.
For a boy’s tea party theme, make sure to give the kiddos something to do! Yard games like croquet, cornhole, badminton and bocce ball are all games that involve no touch contact so your little dudes don’t get dirty.
