Tea Party Extraordinaire: Formal, Twirly-Dress Soirees For Little Girls

Having a little girl can remind you of just how enchanting and magical the world feels at every turn when you are young. Help her dress for the part with tea party dresses for little girls that will make her feel confident and joyful when it comes to dressing up. Our little girls tea party ideas are designed to help her embrace the beauty of being young and see the world as a place where magic is possible. Read our top formal soiree tips for girls on the Sara Dresses blog.

The All-Pink Tea Party

If your girl is queen of the girly-girls, one of the best little girls tea party themes is to embrace her favorite color for an ultra feminine approach to a sweet formal party she’ll love. Serve snacks and treats in pink paper cups and plates, with menu items like fruit salad made with berries and watermelon, pink lemonade, and strawberry-frosted cakes. Decorate tables with pink flowers and pink balloons to add a whimsical, romantic touch. Invite all of her guests to wear their favorite pink party dresses—they’re sure to enjoy the chance to don their best formal wear and spend the afternoon feeling pampered.

To shake things up a bit, experiment with different color themes that reflect the changing seasons; deep purple or orange for autumn, green or burgundy for winter, or even silver or gold for a holiday time tea party.

Princess Tea Party Ideas

If your gal is crazy about dressing up as a princess, make that the theme for an incredible formal tea party that she’ll remember forever. Her favorite dress up outfits can easily double as tea party dresses, and mom can offer each guest her own tiara so she and her pals will have the chance to act out their favorite scenes from fairytales, books, and their most beloved movies. As far as decor goes, take cues from her outfit to plan how you set up your little girls tea party table, what you give as party favors, and what kinds of activities you plan. Your little girl will always remember the day you transformed an ordinary afternoon into a soiree befitting royalty.

The Perfect Vintage Outdoor Celebration

Tap into the spirit of a bygone era with a vintage inspired formal tea party with all the right trimmings. Stock up on vintage china (thrift stores and consignment shops usually sell plenty of cute floral sets) and vintage table linens for a charming, picture-perfect lawn party! When it comes to what kinds of snacks to serve, consider petite finger sandwiches, pastel macaroon cookies, or old-fashioned root beer floats to get them into the spirit. And as far as the ideal outfits go? If you can find vintage tea party dresses in girls sizes, that’s always a fun pick, or our Easter collection certainly doubles as the ideal formal tea party wardrobe, with plenty of magical, twirl-worthy options in soft, sweet colors. Just add one of our flower crowns for the perfect finishing touch!

Bring a Guest

Just because you are throwing a formal party doesn’t mean you can’t introduce a sense of fun and whimsy! When you invite your daughter’s friends over for a little girls tea party, make sure they know they can bring a “plus one” to the big event—meaning their favorite doll, of course! This is a great idea for younger girls who may feel more at ease spending the afternoon away from mom and dad in the company of a beloved friend. Plus, just picture the sweet photo ops: girls in adorable tea party dresses plus a collection of their most cherished dolls and stuffed animals? It’s almost too sweet to bear.
