10 Best: ideas for a tea party themed room
This might seem like a rather odd theme. Ok, it is rather odd, but I was inspired by this bookshelf I saw on Etsy (amazing, but unfortunately doesn’t ship to the UK) and it occurred to me that children love tea parties, so why wouldn’t they love a room that looked like one.
My first quest was for wallpaper and Thornback & Peel‘s Jelly & Cake fits the bill perfectly. Golden, delicious and £65 per roll.
Not a wallpaper person? Opt for one or both of these fabulous prints. Teacups, €10,50 (plus €3.50 p&p), Laura Amiss.
Or the retro-stylee Teapots, £15, Knockout at Not on the High Street.
You’ll need something to sit on to admire all that wall candy, so may I suggest Holly Palmer‘s super-cute teacup stool, £140, which can be produced in pretty much any colour you desire.
For a slightly softer seating arrangement, invest in a couple of oh-so-sweet cushion. Custard Creams (also check out the Bourbons, Oreos, Jammie Dodgers, Tunnocks Caramels and Digestives), 28, Nikki McWilliams.
Or maybe your little one is more of an iced bun fan. How scrumptious does Jessica Dance’s bun cushion look? 50, YCN.
A party’s not a party without jelly, so why not have one that also functions as a light. And it changes colour. 29, Mathmos.
And let’s not forget the ubiquitous cupcake. These cupboard/drawer pulls were the least sickly cupcake interior items I could find, about 10, Shimrita on Etsy.
Finally, complete the look with a genuine teaset. There are so many fantastic versions out there – ceramic, melamine, tin or recycled plastic, but I’m loving this wooden set by Erzi, €20.50, Shak-Shuka.
