Tea parties are a magical experience for those of all ages. For children, it is sharing an experience with their loved ones or friends (both real and furry). And as adults, it is a transformation back to our own childhood. As we sit down with our children, we are instantly transported back to when we were young.
The Produce Moms X Applewood Fresh Bags
Our innovative Nature’s Perfect Snack apple bags are a versatile way to add more apples to your diet. With 3- and 5-pound options, you’ll be able to buy the right amount of apples for any occasion. These bags are perfect for hosting an apple tea party! You can use them for tea, snacks, desserts and much more! You can even use them for a fun apple stamping activity.
Another bonus to these bags is that no matter what part of the country you’re in, you’ll be able to “travel” to Michigan apple orchards and learn how apples are grown and harvested by scanning the QR code. Not only can your kids enjoy an apple tea party, but they can also do some free, downloadable lesson plans and activity sheets.

How To Host an Apple Tea Party
Hosting your own tea party really is simple. We will show you step-by-step how you can bring the magic from thought to magic. Your kiddos will love every minute, and it will be a memory you can cherish for a lifetime!
Set the Table for the Apple Tea Party
First and foremost, it is important to set your table for the tea party. Make sure you set it for your real guests and your furry friends that may join you as well. Do you have apple-patterned plates or an apple tea pot? You could even use an apple with a name card as a simple setting that your kids will enjoy making. Keep it simple and put the kiddos in charge of getting the table set.
Make the Tea for the Apple Tea Party
You can’t have a tea party without tea, can you? Apple flavored teas are a perfect fit. However, if you don’t think your guests will enjoy tea, you can serve hot apple cider or even cold apple juice. Use an apple ring as your garnish regardless of what you pick for your “tea” of choice.
Make the Snacks for the Apple Tea Party
And you can’t forget the finger foods. The possibilities are endless. Of course, all of our ideas will include apples! You can bake apple slices wrapped in croissant dough. We also like creating little “tea” sandwiches (crustless, of course). You can use apple slices with ham or turkey. You could even do chicken salad with diced apples. Creating apple and cucumber kabobs could be something easy for the kids to help prepare. Also, chocolate dipped apple slices will help those guests with a sweet tooth!
Don’t Forget the Whimsy
And don’t be afraid to add a little extra magic and whim to your table. Perhaps you could use a hollowed apple as your sugar bowl. You can also make apple carvings like roses or wings. They are always a hit. And adding a little sprinkle of edible glitter makes everything magical!
