Want to host your own Ladies Tea? Congratulations! This will be a valuable experience for you and your guests. You are at the heart of a special group of ladies who will welcome the opportunity that you are creating for them.

How Many? Invite 6-12 Tea Ladies of your choice. The goal is to keep the group small enough to give everyone a chance to contribute, and big enough to ensure that the conversation flows. Everyone should be able to fit comfortably around your table.

Who? Inviting engaging, classy, and interesting ladies will make up the unique Ladies Tea dynamic. This is a subjective judgment call for a hostess to make– chances are, you probably already know some wonderful women who would benefit from and enjoy The Ladies Tea. Great Tea Ladies do not have to be overly extroverted, but silence is not the ultimate goal! Try not to just invite your close friends. This is a chance to expand your circle. When extending the invitation to your tea, you can always point a new Tea Lady to this website to explain the concept.

When? Invite your guests at least 2 weeks ahead of time and ask them to RSVP within a few days. This gives you enough time to ensure that enough Tea Ladies can attend. A Sunday afternoon is typically a good day to host The Ladies Tea and a wonderful way to finish a weekend. Determine a starting, and an ending time for the tea.

How Should I Format the Invitation? Not to worry! We have this covered. You can click on the PDF below for invitations that can be printed at home. If you do not have a printer, you can simply write an email to your ladies with the details of your Ladies Tea (type of Ladies Tea– social, speaker, or themed– date, time, location, and a request for an RSVP). It is a good idea to provide a link in your email to this website, to give the ladies an idea of what to expect!
