Ideas for a vintage tea party?

Im having a vintage themed party for my birthday. I need ideas on how to entertain my guests. My mum and sister are in charge of the cooking. Batten burg, french fancies, etc

Anyway, i had the idea of a free raffle. With 5 not-so-expensive prizes lol
I also had the idea of brining out my Fine China tea sets. Which would be awsome, but im scared of them getting broken. Its not a traditional, type of party (like sitting in fancy dresses, sipping tea etc) lol

If anyone has any tips or ideas, please feel free to let me know.

The idea of the china set is great because it matches with vintage style. You can’t have a vintage party with a lot of plastic junk. Maybe you can find an inexpensive tea set in some local thrifty store (get a kid’s tea set, there’s no problem, just don’t get a set too small), or have floral print paper plates (like these: http://platesandnapkins.com/pan/georgian-rose-10-inch-square-plates.html ) at party supplies stores or even at department or discount stores.
Decore the party area with tissue pom poms. You can use teapots as jars by putting delicate flowers inside then place the teapots on stacks of books around the party to add an old fashioned look. You also can create a vintage look by using plastic lace cover over a solid color tablecloth.
As entertainment, make a list of songs with the word "tea" and have the guest to guess the music name or who’s singing, you can divide them into teams. Craft also is a nice idea, set up a table and have your guests to decorate their own tea cups. Use something like this: http://www.centurynovelty.com/detail_677_146-1521.html
Get as many as you need and one who decorate the most beautiful tea cup wins a prize.

Just some ideas, use your imagination and have a fun party!
