Tea parties are all about getting together and having fun. It is the best way to gather your friends and have a lovely afternoon chatting and catching up. Tea party games can add more fun to your tea party and be a good way to unwind and get away from the same monotonous routine of the everyday life. When it comes to tea party games you can choose games that are specific and have some connection with tea or you can just select a bunch of indoor fun games you and your friends will enjoy over a lovely cup of tea and the savories and sweets.
If you want to have tea party games then you will need to do a little more planning. You might set aside a little budget for the games also. Sometimes it might even cost nothing. If you are planning to sit down over a game of poker or bridge with the selected few of your friends, you can enjoy wonderful tea and play while chit chatting all afternoon.
If it is a larger party then cards might not be the suitable option. If you are hosting a vintage tea party or an English tea party then you should focus on playing games that are very specifically related to the tea itself. You can buy different tea leaves and put them in different plates. Then you should ask your guests to recognize which tea leaves they are. The game can become more fun if the participants are blindfolded and tell the leaves by touch and smell. This game will be a huge success in a party of true tea lovers.
Tossing tea bags
For something more exciting you can play tossing tea bags. Take three or four teapots that are not very fragile or expensive and place them on a table. The participants have to toss the tea bags in the teapots from a certain distance. The game can be made more exciting if there is a time limit and the participant who gets the maximum number of tea bags in the teapots in the given time wins. You can make small goody bags as gifts for the winners.
The most exciting game
The most fun game for parties that is not essentially tea related is when two teams are formed. One player of a team acts out a situation written down by a player of the second team. The team mates have to guess what the player is trying to tell them but no words are used only gestures and actions. This game can really rock your tea party and by the end of the party you will have a group of happy grownups who have had a lot of fun.
If you have a themed tea party like a baby shower tea party, a retirement tea party or a graduation tea party etc. you can select games according to the theme of the party. You down load countless games from the internet and print out the cards easily. Many tea party games ideas are available easily on the internet and you can select your favorite for your party.
