1. Keep it simple

A tea or brunch doesn’t have to be extravagant to be a lot of fun. Sometimes simple is best and more enjoyable for everyone! For your décor, focus on a few key areas and do them really well. Pick a color scheme and stick with it, accenting with a few colors to make it all pop.

2. Ditch the plastic

Ditching plastic isn’t just for the environmentally conscious individual. It’s for anyone that wants to take their events and decorations to the next level. Plastic plates, cups, utensils, serving utensils, tablecloths, and other décor can add up to a lot of unnecessary waste that’s harmful for the environment and our health.

Thankfully there’s a better way! Our Palm Leaf Tableware and Bambu Veneer Utensils make it easy to reduce waste while taking your decorations to the next level. Our compostable cups are perfect for serving warm beverages without having to use styrofoam.

3. Add fun details

A table doesn’t have to be busy to be beautiful. In fact, most of the less is more and allow the fun little details to stand out. Utilize our fun Heart Plantable Confetti for a delicate, simple reminder of friendship and love as part of your décor. Use a neutral toned tablecloth or table runner to make the confetti pop and stand out.

Our 6” Heart-Shaped Palm Leaf Plates are perfect for Valentine’s Day as serving dishes or for your guests to eat off of. All of these fun details add to your event without requiring a lot of extra time or money.

4. Plan your menu

You can have variety on your menu without breaking the bank or spending an exhorbitant amount of time in the kitchen. Choose a couple of pastry options (one sweet and one savory), fruit, and warm and cold beverages and your guests will enjoy a delicious assortment of food.

Take into consideration different food allergies and consider having gluten-free and dairy-free options as well. Many grocery stores now sell excellent gluten-free baking mixes if you aren’t experienced baking for that allergy; you’d never know they’re gluten-free! Have almond or oat milk on hand for guests who can’t put dairy in their tea or coffee. Remembering food sensitivities will make your guests feel welcome and special instead of awkward or uncomfortable if they can’t eat or drink anything.
