Tea Party Etiquette

Your guests should be invited to the Tea Party with formal invitations. This will not only make your Red Hat sisters feel special, it will make them excited about attending. The invitations should be appropriately themed in red and purple, and should describe the dress code, time, and location of the event. Of course, your guests should already know that nothing less than full Red Hat regalia should be worn to this party.

Greeting your guests with kindness and positivity is the first order of business when conducting a Red Hat Tea Party. Make sure that all of your Red Hat sisters are accommodated and feel comfortable where they are seated. Once all of your guests are settled in, it is time for you to join them.

It is standard to serve finger sandwiches, scones, and desserts at a Tea Party. Providing lemon slices and cubes of sugar are also lovely options. Place your napkin on your lap as soon as you are seated, and let the napkin remain on your lap unless you get up. When the tea arrives, sip the tea, and remember to remain ladylike when enjoying finger foods.

Pay attention to the needs of your Red Hat sisters, and offer them more tea or food if their cups and plates are looking empty. Your guests will feel like they are being rude if they must ask for seconds, so make sure that you are mindful of your duty as their hostess.

Above all, make sure that your Red Hat sisters are having a splendid time and enjoying the time spent with their fellow Red Hatters.
