Tea party ideas: Cupcakes are as cool as they are cuplike, so why not enjoy them with your friends at a little cupcake tea party? Yes, this really is as cute as it sounds!
How many girls can honestly say that they dislike cupcakes? That's a rhetorical question, naturally. Cupcakes are great fun to make and VERY fun to eat, especially with company! If you follow these steps, your cupcakes party will be one of the greatest parties ever, and one your friends will certainly remember.
You'll need to make a few decisions before you start planning your cupcakes tea party:

Tea party music ideas
I prefer not to have music at my cupcake tea parties. But if you're thinking of a WW2 feel, have some lovely Vera Lynn playing in the background. If you're going for a kitsch pastel fifties feel, consider the Betcha Bottom Dollar. They do a fantastic rendition of Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy (of Company B). As it's so charming, you could listen to 'Lovecats' by Robert Smith over and over again. And over and over again. Classical music is always suitable for a cupcake tea party - maybe some Mozart or Handel - the 'Clockwork Orange' musical anarchic rigour of Beethoven, although it's real horrorshow, is probably out.
The most important element of your tea party is unequivocably the cupcakes! Try these delicous cupcake recipes:

Tea party food ideas
