In this text, we will discover together the charms of organizing an afternoon tea - from finding a location, to choosing decorations, a unique menu and attractions.
What is important when choosing a location for a picnic?
Choosing the right place for a tea party is extremely important . Look for a place with lush vegetation , beautiful and fragrant flowers , and space large enough to spread blankets or place tables. Take into account your own backyard , but also the parks and botanical gardens in your area. Make sure that the place you choose will provide guests with shade that will protect them from the intense sun and soothe their bodies with a gentle coolness.
How to decorate your chosen picnic spot?
It is important that you emphasize the beauty of the surrounding nature with appropriate decorations. Create beautiful floral arrangements using various plant species in vivid colors and place them in antique teapots or delicate vases . Sprinkle flower petals on a tablecloth or picnic blanket to create a romantic atmosphere . Also consider hanging lights or lanterns on nearby trees . They are perfect for the evening, creating a dreamy and intimate atmosphere . Remember about colorful pillows to ensure comfort and convenience for yourself and your guests!
