Vintage Summer Girls Tea Party Tablescape

There is plenty of time this summer to organize a vintage tea party featuring vintage plates, tea cups and saucers! Little girls and big girls alike will enjoy finger sandwiches, cookies, and pastries while feeling like a princess. Top off the yummy treats with pink lemonade and great memories with friends. 

This summer vintage tablescape was created with the same vintage dishes, glasses, linens and silverware used in my previous tablescape posts. If you haven't seen them, take a peek HERE. It has taken many years to acquire all the pieces I have used but today I am going to show you how to create the same look featuring unique tableware from my advertising affiliate partner, Beau-Coup.
If you haven't heard of Beau-Coup before, you are going to be in for a special treat! 
I especially love their BRAND NEW vintage collection! They have made it super easy to create a beautiful vintage tablescape for the perfect little tea party, birthday party, and even a bridal or baby shower! Let's take a peek at a few of their items that can be easily ordered, quickly shipped and ready for a summertime celebration. 

A tea party would not be complete without vintage tea cups and saucers. I do tons of thrift store and antique shopping and tea cups and saucers are one of the most difficult items to find. When I do find them, they can be pricey. Depending on the brand and the pattern, I have paid anywhere from $5 for a set to $20 for a set. Beau-Coup has brought you these beautiful mint colored paper cups with scalloped saucers. I just adore the pink floral pattern complete with gold trim!  You can click directly on the image to be taken to their website to browse the entire collection. When I saw the price of the 12 piece set I was stunned because they are absolutely adorable!  


These cake plates come in a set of 12 and there are 6 different patterns!  At first glance, these vintage cake plates look like fine china right out of an antique shop. The colors are vibrant and the scalloped edges with various floral patterns are what make them perfect! I am so excited about this collection. The diameter is approx. 6.75 inches and perfect for little hands. 


I can just imagine these dainty mis-matched vintage dessert plates in the hands of little girls giggling and enjoying their special tea party.  As a mom, I love this collection because if they drop, they don't break! The dessert plates are around the same size as the cake plates and come in three different patterns. The diameter is approx. 6.7 inches which is a perfect size for appetizers or dessert. 



When you are ready for the main course or are looking for a slightly larger plate, these tea party plates will make afternoon tea a delight. Are you noticing these patterns are different from the other plates. This is great because it adds interest and follows the vintage mis-matched look which we all love. They also come in sets of 12 and are approximately 8.5 inches in diameter.  


Brides and mommies to be will be delighted when they see these large vintage plates adorning the table at their showers.  The 10.5 inch diameter is close to the size of a dinner plate and come in a set of 8 with the two different patterns. You can purchase gold chargers to set underneath the plates and then add a smaller dessert or cake plate on top with a cute name card. White or colorful solid napkins will match this collection perfectly.  


As I write this post, I can imagine scones, cookies, cucumber tea sandwiches and mini cupcakes being served to guests on these large serving plates. The vibrant colors and scalloped edges are fabulous. They come in a set of 4 in the two patterns shown. They can be placed at a buffet table or directly on the main table and are sturdy enough to pass around. You could also use them on a tired stand to add height to your table.  So Pretty!  


OMG just when I thought I had seen it all, I find these absolutely adorable vintage tea pot favor boxes.  They even come with the white ribbon!  Fill them with small chocolates or mints for each party guest to take home and the smiles and memories will continue long after the party is finished.  You can even make name tags and tie to the tea pot. Your guests will enjoy the added treat while finding their name at the table. I LOVE Turquoise.  

                                   VINTAGE CREAMER VASE SET

This porcelain vintage inspired creamer set comes with 8 creamer cups that you can add in various places on your tea party tablescape. Fill them with roses, carnations, tulips or use them for creamer. Since they are porcelain, you can keep them forever and they coordinate with the vintage plates perfectly. Vintage tableware never goes out of style and since these are sold in a set of 8, you have so many possibilities and options how you would like to use them. You might want to keep a few on your kitchen counter for decorations. 

Beau-Coup is always searching for new unique items to add their inventory to make your celebration a memorable one! Another reason my heart smiles with this vintage collection is that there is no clean up, no washing, drying or storing them away! The Liberty Pennant Garland will add additional vintage charm to your party as well as the vintage heart shaped key place card holders. Take a peek at their website and see how your celebration can be beautiful!
