Let’s Talk Tea Party Bridal Shower Ideas!
It’s tea time! Throw your bride-to-be a shower that will leave her raving. This shower is perfect for the elegant and sophisticated bride looking for an upscale celebration with a laidback feel. Alert your guests to don their best tea-length dresses and fine pressed trousers, prepare for fragrant teas from around the world, and get ready to dine on delectable bite-sized treats.
A Splendidly Lovely Tea Party Venue to Remember
Location, location, location. It can make or break your tea party bridal shower theme! Our best advice? Select an elegant hotel with old world charm and plenty of natural light streaming through windows and skylights. The charm will put your guests in just the right mood for a classic English tea service.
Another great option is to invite your guests to a beautifully manicured garden! The delicate blossoms will add natural ambiance. Utilize bistro tables piled high with finger sandwiches, macarons, and cupcakes to elevate the occasion. Your bride-to-be and guests will adore wandering through the gardens, nibbling on delicacies, and talking about your bride’s big day!
Bring Out the Fine China
A fine china set passed down from family member to family member or an adorable mismatched set of china from the local thrift shop will complete your tea party bridal shower theme.
Don’t forget the pot! Choose to coordinate the tea pot with the theme or spice it up a little! For the teas with spectacular color, a clear tea pot to show off the deep radiant red of a raspberry tea, or any of your favorites. Or display a simple white tea pot and have your guests sign their names plus a cute message for a lifelong keepsake.
It’s Tea Time!
There is an array of teas just waiting to be sampled during your tea party bridal shower. Don’t limit yourself to plain old black. Include a variety of teas to appeal to each guest’s palette. Earl Grey for a slightly smoky taste, lemon for a refreshing citrus blitz, fruit flavored teas are magnificent for guests with a sweet tooth, and you can never go wrong with a smooth matcha green tea. There’s a tea fit for every taste.
Send Your Guests Home with Tea Treat
A farewell party favor is the perfect cap to a tea party bridal shower. Craft a loose leaf tea sampler with mini jars of honey and sugar cubes for the road. Your local craft store will have small containers and labels to create picture perfect mini parting tea sets that your guests can select after a lovely afternoon of tea, treats, and upcoming wedding conversations.
Tea for Two is Nice, But a Tea Party Bridal Show is Just Right!
Enjoy an enchanting afternoon tea party with friends, family, and–at the center of it all–the beautiful bride-to-be, glowing in a tea-length sundress. The tea party bridal shower theme is elegant, inexpensive, and easily achieved with just a pinch of creativity and ingenuity.
