My favorite book and movie is Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen. I have designed jewelry inspired by Austen, designed and coordinated two Jane Austen Faires (vintage/craft shows), and now I’ve created an ebook to share how to create a Jane Austen tea and DIY party. Austen’s novels have always inspired me and probably always will. This ebook covers all the steps and plans I used to host my party. The ebook has a link to access the printables to make setting up your own party even easier. The party photos are so inspirational and special to me because they capture the feeling of the party so well – it was magical. My two friends sewed their own regency gowns and looked like they walked right out of the 1800s. It was an amazing tea party!
Designing and creating the decorations was my favorite part of the process and I enjoyed creating little details and using decor around my home to create a book-themed tablescape. Some of the party decorations that I created are still being used around my home because I enjoy them so much. One of the DIY decorations was created to also be a take-away for my guests. I put a lot of thought and planning into creating these decorations and party details.
I don’t usually enjoy cooking and preparing food, but with one of my favorite cook’s recipes at my disposal and a little planning and preparing, the menu was absolutely delicious and easy to put together. You can find the main dish, rotisserie chicken salad sandwiches, on TheMenuMaid.com site. My menu was a full tea with a main dish and three sides. We also enjoyed Earl Grey Savoy Tea and treats. Everything was so tasty and I enjoyed adding a little garnish to some of the sides – pretty food tastes so good.
How to Create a Jane Austen Tea and DIY Party – Book Safe DIY
After enjoying our lunch and the excitement of our regency outfits and the ambiance of the party, we got started on our craft project! There is something so fun about crafting with others and seeing how each person gets creative and makes their own design. The best thing about the book safe DIY is that most people haven’t created one before and they make such a great keepsake and decor accessory around your home. I found some Jane Austen digital images on Etsy that we used to decorate the covers of our book safes as well as other ephemera and craft items. One of my favorite items was my wax seal kit! I used it on the invitations, the name cards, and my book safe. You can find the one I used on here on Amazon.
