Throwing a Spring Tea Party, Gilded Lily Style

Whether you're hosting a fancy, formal, traditional tea or a casual, fun paper-plates-and-treats spring tea get-together, the Gilded Lily can help you throw a fabulous gourmet tea party. Visit us in downtown Wenatchee to have one of our salesladies help you select the perfect supplies for your party.


Hot day? Serve one of our delicious Tea Forte iced tea flavors: Iced Ceylon Gold, Iced Lavender Citrus, Iced Pomegranate Blackberry, Iced Raspberry Nectar, and Iced White Ginger Pear.

Rainy day? Serve delicious hot dessert tea, using our Tea Forte Dolce Vita. The flavors are Belgian Mint, Vienna Cinnamon and Raspberry Nectar.


Spice up your Tarragon Mustard Deviled Eggs or egg salad tea sandwiches with our Stonewall Kitchen mustards. Some of the flavors we carry include Wasabi mustard, traditional pub mustard, champignon shallot mustard, and bourbon molasses mustard.


Bake delectably tiny lemon curd tarts using our Stonewall Kitchen lemon curd. We like to serve them arranged on a tray with decorative lemon slices.

For an easy dessert, prepare a pie shell (or a tray of tart shells), then fill it with our Country Living Pecan Pie in a Jar. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Bake scones (pick up a quick mix at Safeway) and serve them with one of our tasty Stonewall Kitchen jams, such as this Strawberry Balsamic Jam.

Serve a tempting array of Thumbprint Cookies made with our Stonewall Kitchen Sugarplum Jam.

Set out a small fancy plate of our Pacific Dessert Raspberry Decadence cookies.

Whip up a little treat quick using our Saxon Chocolates Bread mix, Belgian Chocolate macaroons, or Belgian chocolate brownie mix.

Your guests might be delighted with Barefoot Contessa coconut cupcakes. Make them from scratch, or pick up our boxed mix to save you a bit of prep time.

Dress up your cupcakes with our cute polka-dot cupcake wrapper kit!


Make your tea party festive with our large selection of Caspari and Michel Design paper plates and luncheon napkins. Let us help you select the perfect set of paper plates and napkins to make your party festive!
