Mary Poppins in the Kitchen
MARY POPPINS RETURNS
With the upcoming movie release of Mary Poppins Returns, why not get all your girlfriends together to celebrate in style with a traditional English tea party.
A BAG FULL OF FUN
Invite guests to your Mary Poppins themed tea by giving each guest our printable carpetbag card. Upon opening the bag, a lamppost pops out, a palm leaf peeks, a tape measure comes out and the final piece: a mirror reveals the party details.
LIGHT THE WAY
As a further nod to Mary’s popular lamppost, decorate your party area with the Truly Scrumptious lampshade bunting. It features pretty vintage patterned florals and trimmed with real fringe! Or how about the fabric pennant shaped bunting?
Such a fun way to describe your party, so string it up over and over again by printing out our swallowtail lettered bunting and hanging up overhead.
Raid your Granny’s linen cupboard and set your table with pretty tablecloths, napkins and tea sets. But don’t fret if you don’t have any or enough, the Party Pieces Truly Chintz and Scrumptious ranges have everything from pretty paper tablecloths and napkins to patterned plates and even paper cups in the shape of teacups and saucers!
CHERRY TREE TREATS
Create an impressive and edible centrepiece by filling the Truly Scrumptious three-tiered cake stand or spiraling cake stand with mini cherry tarts or cupcakes topped with cherries.
A cute floral arrangement that you can make yourself is by filling vintage glass bud vases with garden flowers like tea roses and daisies and topping these off with Party Pieces drinking parasols.
Further accentuate the story by decorating your place settings with our printable vintage place cards, cherry party circle food toppers and tape measures.
Customise classic English soft drink bottles like Rose Lemonade and Ginger Beer with our free printable party circle’s labeling the beverage as Mary’s Pop!
CAKE AND CANDY
For fun, one can encourage guests to bake or decorate mini cakes or cupcakes. Or we particularly love the idea of making POP corn or cake POPS!
SPOONFUL OF SUGAR
Get guests talking with the Truly Scrumptious conversation teaspoon shaped cards. Place one on each tea saucer and add a sugar cube or treat on top!
THEMED TAKE HOME TREATS
The great thing about having a Mary Poppins theme tea is that there are so many cute things that you can give as party favours: carousel pencils, chocolate coins as “tuppence”, little jars of bird seed to “Feed the birds”, mini “Fly a Kite” kits and sidewalk chalk. Finish these off with our free printable thank you favour tags.
