First off, we feel compelled to mention that there aren’t any hard and fast rules when it comes to setting the table for a tea party. Gone are the days of solely rigid, stuffy, and formal tea parties. The modern tea party era is relaxed, pretty, and inviting.
With that said, a lot of the old school rules are seemingly… well, too old and too formal looking for today’s new age tea hostess’s taste. So many have taken it upon themselves to set up tables however they please.
