Fancy Nancy is a character created by author Jane O’Conner. Prepare a Fancy Nancy tea party for the little girl in your life who, like Nancy, loves all things fancy; glitter, lace and important-sounding words. A tea party can include all your child’s friends, a single friend, grandma or dressed-up dolls.
Fancy Nancy Tea Party Invitations
Fancy Nancy thinks French words are fancy. Make Fancy Nancy party invitations using pink or purple card stock or stationary. Add Fancy Nancy or Paris themed stickers. Look up French words and sayings to use such as, “Bon jour, or Ooh la la” (your child’s name) is hosting a soiree. Please come to a tea party fit for a Queen.” Add the rest of the party details and mail or deliver to your child’s guests.
Fancy Nancy Tea Party Decorations
Feather boas can cover a small table to hold party favors or birthday gifts.Go all out when decorating for a Fancy Nancy tea party. Hot pink, white and purple should be the main colors. You can tie hot pink balloons to the mailbox with lots of purple curling ribbon hanging down and tape more balloons and ribbons around the front door. But the bulk of the decorations will be focused on the tea party room. Drape tulle and ribbons over the table and chairs. Set a pink Eiffel Tower from a party store in the center of the table, or a vase of fake flowers. You can surround the centerpiece with a feather boa or garlands of fake flowers on the table. Set the table with tea cups and small plates.
Fancy Nancy Tea Party Attire
Give the girls manicures before tea is served. Invite the guests to arrive in their fanciest attire. Provide extra items such as feather boas, gloves, tiaras and beaded necklaces. You can also gather party gowns, princess costumes, hats and silk scarves from thrift stores. Set up a full length mirror so that the girls can admire themselves.
Fancy Nancy Tea Party Food
Pretty, individual desserts are common at a tea party. Transform nearly any food item into fancy tea party fare with frilly toothpicks. Stick with a tea party menu and serve tiny sandwiches, cucumbers, strawberry cream cheese on mini bagels and fruit kebabs or plan on pizza or peanut butter and jelly. Whatever you decide on for the main meal, be sure to include parfaits with whipped cream and sprinkles.
Fancy Nancy Tea Party Activities
You can choose to include makeup with the dress up attire. Teach the girls tea party etiquette and how to walk with a book on their heads. Gather the guests around the table to make necklaces and bracelets. Provide beads and string and let them work while you read a Fancy Nancy storybook aloud.
Call the girls together at the end of the party for a fashion show. Turn on music and take lots of pictures while they strut their stuff near the full length mirror. You can collect your fancy accessories as they leave, or let them take them home.
