A few years ago for Christmas, my husband bought me this antique tea set to display on the shelf in my gray and white pantry. I’m not a big tea drinker but it’s fun to get out every once in awhile and use, just for fun.
This Christmas I thought it would be fun to let my 6 year old host a Christmas tea party/sugar cookie decorating party, with her neighborhood friends, and let them use my “fancy” tea set. You know me, I love a good themed party, and while I was trying to think of a theme for their little tea party, I came across these super cute Bounty Winter Pop Prints paper towels, perfect for our Christmas tea party!
They were exactly the inspiration I needed and I decided to decorate with vintage-style ornaments, like my great grandma used to put on her tree.
I hung the ornaments over our breakfast nook table, where I wanted to set up the party for the girls. Aren’t they lovely. I love the shape and color of vintage ornaments.
I decorated the table with the cookie decorating fixin’s, my vintage tea set and lots of Bounty paper towels to try to contain the mess. 🙂
The girls had an absolute blast decorating the cookies, I loved seeing their imaginations at work, while they decorated.
And of course we had to have pink tea, which the girls thought was so much fun.
Despite my attempt to “contain” the mess, I decided to let the girls just enjoy themselves and worry about the mess later.
Lucky for me, the Bounty paper towels aren’t just pretty, they are also super durable so I was able to clean up all the sticky frosting, spilled tea and sprinkles with just one towel! I’d wipe up a bit of the mess, rinse the towel out in the sink, then repeat, until every last sprinkle was cleaned up.
I love being able to help my daughter create fun Christmas memories and start new traditions with her friends, just like I have with my friends. I also love thinking of fun, new themes for parties. If you’re looking for some inspiration for your holiday parties, go grab some of these limited edition Bounty Winter Pop Prints Paper Towels and Quilted Napkins (available at major grocery stores and retailers including Target and Sam’s Club).
What are some of your fun memories from when you were a kid? Do you have any traditions you do every year with your kids, I’d love to hear them! 🙂
This post was sponsored by Bounty, and I was compensated, but all opinions are my own.
So cute! I wanted to do this for Reagan with her friends this year but I’m running out of energy! Next year!
Definitely! Maybe when you don’t have a toddler…. 🙂

Tks a bunch!! And I’m so looking forward to following your page…
Hi Jen! Thank you, the girls had a lot of fun with it. 🙂 The plates are from Walmart, they are from the Better Homes and Gardens line. They were seasonal but they will probably have them back next Christmas.
