When my oldest daughter (now 14)was turning 7 she hosted a tea party. We asked all of the guests to dress in their fanciest dress up clothes or use some of ours. We bought old party dresses, hats and gloves etc. at a used clothing store. It was so much fun to see the children dressed up. We took lots of pictures. We set a formal table and served fancy sandwiches and sweets. We had plain and fruity tea and a pot of iced tea for the non tea drinkers. We also picked up used cups and saucers that were in good shape and filled them with flavoured tea bags, biscuits etc and wrapped them in clear gift wrap tied with bows. When Rebekah handed out these treats instead of loot bags, there were "oohs and aahs" all around. Not long ago, one of my other children went to a party where every child got to paint and keep their own cup and saucer. Maybe this idea could be incorporated in some way.
I hope this information is helpful.
