We Had An Actual Tea Party with Real Guests Tea Party Ideas #CadburyHighTea

I received the #CadburyHighTea party kit, recipes, ideas and information as part of a promotional program with Cadbury and MomSelect. All opinions and thoughts 100% my own.

As a mom of a six year old daughter, I have been invited to many tea parties since Zoe became more social appreciating imaginative play. She had her first play tea set at a very young age, has a princess ceramic set displayed on a shelf in her room and I constantly find her playing with her stuffed plush and dolls for tea party fun.

When I was congratulated on being selected as a host for a Cadbury™ Ice Cream Bars High Tea Party Zoe and I were elated, we were finally going to have an actual tea party with real guests. We immediately started planning our small gathering with friends.

Our party was held on Saturday with my friends and their daughter’s. We received everything to host the perfect afternoon tea party from MommyParties and Cadbury including elegant hats, porcelain tea cups with saucers, sugar and creamer set and Cadbury Ice Cream Bars.

Tea Party Food

Tea Party Decorating

I organized with simple decorating of the table and chairs with a table cover, place setting cards, floral vase as the centerpiece, napkins, saucers and tea cups and tumblers for the children in front of the chairs with their fancy tea party hats. I also had a banner that showed “Welcome and #CadburyHighTea

The Tea Party

High Tea Party Ideas

Once guests arrived, they found their seat, put on their fashionable tea party hat and the party began. We chitchatted a bit while our hot tea, cold citrus tea and all the yummy snacks. What do women and little girl’s discuss at a tea party?

In our finest British accents we of course discussed the arrival of the Royal Baby! We did a poll of the gender of the baby where baby boy won. Next we were having many laughs over who could speak the British accent best. Ack, nobody really did too well.

Tea Party Games

We didn’t want the girl’s bored so outdoors we went for some entertainment.

The first game we played was sugar cube race. Every child received a plastic spoon and sugar cube. They had to race to me without their sugar cube falling.

First person to make it to me won. We did the race numerous times then the girl’s wanted to eat their sugar. We told them no as I had more treats awaiting after the games were over.

We then played pass the hat. With a hat and music, we passed the hat very similar to musical chairs, only standing passing a hat.

When the music stopped whoever had the hat was out. We continued until last person standing. My sister-in-law won both games we played, I think she cheats lol.

We also played guess what color hat is missing. This was tricky since nobody had a clue I was going to play this. I started easy with my large red hat then a bluish/green.

End the Party with Cadbury Ice Cream Bars

Time to go back indoors to cool down with tasty Cadbury Ice Cream Bars.

Blue Bunny ice cream has teamed up with Cadbury chocolate in the creation of two new premium ice cream bars; Royal Dark and English Toffee. The Cadbury Ice Cream Bar is creamy Blue Bunny ice cream dipped in thick, rich, Cadbury chocolaty coating. Filling the void between regular and super premium ice cream bars, the Cadbury Ice Cream Bar is snack size indulgence at a price and size the whole family can enjoy.

I created a black bottom banana cups ice cream treat to serve first using Cadbury English Toffee.

MMM this is a Blue Bunny reduced fat toffee ice cream dipped in that thick milk chocolaty coating with toffee pieces. If you aren’t familiar with toffee, these are hard candy bits that melt in your mouth when eaten. So so good.

After that delicious treat we tested the Cadbury Ice Cream Bars. There are four varieties.

Cadbury® Royal Dark™: Creamy Blue Bunny reduced fat vanilla ice cream dipped in thick, rich Cadbury Royal Dark chocolaty coating
Cadbury® English Toffee: Creamy Blue Bunny reduced fat toffee ice cream dipped in thick, rich Cadbury milk chocolaty coating with toffee pieces
Two classic favorites including:
Cadbury® Caramello™: Creamy Blue Bunny Reduced fat vanilla ice cream swirled with caramel sauce all dipped in thick, rich Cadbury milk chocolaty coating
Cadbury® Vanilla Chocolate: Creamy Blue Bunny reduced fat vanilla ice cream dipped in thick, rich Cadbury milk chocolaty coating

I was a royal dark devotee as I love dark chocolate. The soft and creamy ice cream was covered in a thick dark chocolate coating that had a pleasant flavor, rich but not too sweet, perfect for summer cool down. The kids enjoyed the classics of Caramello and Vanilla Chocolate and we all loved the English Toffee.

I’ve been to England so KNOW Cadbury is very popular, founded almost 200 years ago. Smooth, rich, creamy and all delicious.

Thank you so much for our party!!
