My husband is a PGA Golf Professional, so our life revolves around golf. August happens to be National Golf Month, so it’s pretty much Christmas in our house. I’ve been so excited about throwing a “tee party” to celebrate the occasion. Let’s talk “tee,” shall we?
When it comes to a golf-themed tea party, green and white are your go-to colors. Choose a table covering in a grass green. I found a trendy chevron design at my local fabric store that did the trick. A green tablecloth will make everyday white dishes really stand out.
Greet your “tee party” guests with a little welcome sign. You can download the one I used here or create and print your own. I found a golf ball picture frame at a craft store to display my welcome sign. You can also use a little easel or simply prop it up on the table.
Inside each setting’s teacup is a little white favor box filled with a truffle. I hot-glued golf balls on top along with a green satin bow. I love using the favors at a party as part of the table decoration — two for one!
Create an easy DIY centerpiece by growing wheatgrass to set down inside either an oversized teacup basket or just a simple vase. To grow wheatgrass, simply sprinkle seeds in a shallow dish, place outside and water (it takes six to eight days to grow). Cut out a section of the wheatgrass to place in your vase. Use small floral tubes to place flowers inside the wheatgrass. Display “tee time” signs throughout the party.
You can’t have a “tee party” without tea. Little green buckets scattered throughout the table can hold a variety of tea bags atop decorative grass and, of course, golf balls. Add in preppy pattern with napkins, such as a black-and-white polka dots or stripes. Break out your nicest teapot for this golf affair for your golf-loving friends and family.
