Sometimes a classic theme for a bridal shower is where it’s at. A tea party never goes out of style. But how do you deck out an elegant affair? With a mix of flowers, tea lights and vintage tea pots, this tea party bridal shower will impress the bride-to-be and everyone who attends!
Pretty Table Runners
Get started by setting the table with a customized cameo table runner. Muted colors like blush, cream and light green keep it sophisticated.
Cameo Place Cards
The vintage feel of your tea party should extend through all the decorations, even the place cards. Cameo place card holders work well for escort cards and labeling food. Remember to use a fancy script!
For table centerpieces, go for pretty, understated and classic. Fill vintage teapots with roses for a beautiful look.
Lighting is also important. If you’re having your tea party at dusk (which is a great time for pictures), then some rose-shaped tea light holders will do well to set the mood. Teacup tea light holders, tea bag caddies, and tea infusers are other great decor pieces to dress up the table that double as favors!
Unique Place Settings
Tea parties shouldn’t have just any cups. You need tea cups that really set the mood. For an eclectic look, provide mismatched cups and saucers from thrift shops. Guests can even pick their favorites and take them home as a party favor.
If tea cups aren’t your style, personalized stemless wine glasses are elegant additions. White wines work best for garden parties, although it’s always best to have a few reds on hand as well.
Personalized Jam and Honey
Tea parties are about two things: the tea and the food. For a fun edible party favor, give guests personalized mini jars of strawberry jam or customized honey jars. Guests can continue the tea party even after the bridal shower is over!
