Last year, we celebrated Easter on the water. We had just moved into our new home, and we were thrilled to spend a warm spring day outside. This year I hope to host the holiday at our home again, but I want to introduce new traditions. As you may have noticed, I enjoy hosting events that encourage making your own drink or serving yourself. Not only is it easier for the party hostess, it’s a lot more fun. For this year’s Easter celebration, I’m going to set up a DIY Tea Bar.
Create a DIY Tea Bar for Easter
Encourage guests to create a special tea beverage using a variety of add-ins including fresh fruit, honey, and sweeteners.
Style your tea bar with spring decor, colorful flowers, and include signs to label drinks.

To assemble my tea bar, I first started asking friends and family how they like their tea. I personally only drink sweet iced tea with lemon. I might get adventurous and order a fruity green tea once in awhile, but I prefer a large, cold glass of green tea. They helped clue me into other ways to sweeten tea and their personal preferences.
Tea Bar Ideas:
- Agave Nectar
- Extra ice
I added spring colored almonds for a sweet treat and had plenty of teaspoons available. Water was kept warm nearby in an electric kettle so guests could make their own hot tea easily.
A splash of agave nectar adds just the right amount of sweetness to a warm afternoon tea.
As for iced tea, I let the tea cool off with ice, lemons, and plenty of sugar.
Guests will enjoy creating their own blend with the add-ins and can sample tea a variety of ways.
Plan to have several tea cups available and serve iced tea in mason jars or large tumblers. Garnish with lemon, of course. Green tea is gentle so many guests can enjoy participating in the tea bar. Even those who may not typically drink tea can find enjoyment in a glass of iced green tea. It is a light taste that is invigorating.
Don’t forget to decorate! Add signs to label your bar, and hang a few kitschy signs for decor. Want this one for your collection? Download it below.
