Kids Tea Party Ideas For The Coronation

These four simple steps will guide you through how to throw a royal role-play tea party for your little princes and princesses.

Step 1: Craft Your Own Royal Decorations 

To give the tea party a regal vibe, dress your table with some handcrafted coronation-inspired decorations. You could create your own Kings Coronation bunting! All you’ll need is paper, scissors, string and some quality Marker Pens to draw and colour in a few Union Jacks. You could pick up a pack of Tiger Tribe’s Gemstone Sparkle Glitter Goo and design paper crowns for every guest, or deck out your own paper tablecloth with lots of colourful illustrations (think thrones, castles, royal guards and so on!).

Step 2: Set The Table

Lay down your homemade tablecloth and prepare each place setting with a wooden plate, cup and cutlery from our Children’s Dinner Set. It comes with enough pieces for four guests, so your pocket-sized host can invite the family along, share the occasion with friends, or make it a teddy bear tea party! What’s more, the red and blue colours of the set make it perfect for a British celebration.

Step 3: Dish Out The Food

Let them eat cake (don’t worry, these wooden play food sets are sugar-free)! Kiddies can serve up some mouth-watering sweet treats on this charming two-tiered Wooden Cake Stand, which comes with a slice of Victoria Sponge, Battenburg, a cupcake, doughnut and more. Then wash it down with a brew! This 17-piece eco-friendly Toy Tea Set from Green Toys is made from 100% recycled plastic, or you could go for our wooden Kids Tea Set and pair it with these adorable Wooden Tea Bags.
