Whether you’re young or old, everyone loves a tea party — it’s the perfect all-ages occasion to dress up in your favourite attire and share beautiful memories.
A teddy bear picnic is especially fun with little ones as you can go down to the woods — your garden —where you’re sure of a big surprise. There are lots of marvellous things to eat and wonderful games to play. You can’t help but sing-a-long!
Now you’re on your way, a beautiful tea party outfit is needed to fit the story. Here are our favourite style features to help you choose the very best tea party dress for your little lady.
Little Girl Dresses for a Tea Party
1. Fit and Flare
There is one style of dress that has withstood the test of time — the fabulous fit and flare dress. This design is fitted through the waist and flares out at or below the hips to add a charming silhouette we’ve all come to love.
Our ivory and pink peony tea dress is available in luxuriously soft satin and an ivory and fuchsia pink colourway. This fit and flare dress will ensure your daughter is tea party-ready so you can watch as she twirls around in this peony-on-the-vine motif and ruffled bodice.
Ivory and Pink Peony Tea Dress
Ruffles are back in a big way and lucky for this teddy bear picnic theme, they are an excellent feature for a tea party dress. Not only do they add a regal charm, but with today’s designs, ruffles are modern and edgy too.
We particularly love this pink floral perfume gown as the quaint ruffle panels and sketched French-vibe designs of dressing tables and perfume bottles make it the ultimate statement piece at a fancy tea party.
A lovely feature on vintage tea party dresses is the pretty frills that detail high-neck collars and sleeves. Like the ruffles, they add a quintessential tea party vibe, so your little lady is all set for her garden adventure ahead.
This royal blue tea dress is an excellent example of how frilly trimmings can completely transform the look of a dress. Your little lady will fit in impeccably at any tea or garden party.
4. Floral Headband
Every tea party dress needs a finishing touch in the form of a floral headband. It’s practical to keep hair out of eyes, yet adds a sprinkle of extra glamour to the event.
To fit the woodland theme, this leaf green Alice band is encased in a soft velvet ribbon — the epitome of tea party elegance. With a gold vine design decorated with pearls and jewels, this custom-made piece will secure any hairstyle into place with ease.
5. Basket Bag
While your little girl is on her teddy bear picnic, you never know what treasures she’ll come across, so she needs to be prepared. A beautiful bag to suit the occasion will make her day, especially if it’s as cute as this ivory bloom basket bag. Handmade from woven straw, it offers a modern update to this fairytale adventure.
Then, at six o’clock, their mums and dads will take them home to bed, because they’re tired little teddy bears!
