Tea Party Bridal Shower Ideas

A bridal shower in the form of a tea party is a simple, but sweet way to celebrate a bride’s upcoming nuptials. This brunch style of shower is popular and well-loved by many brides and there is good reason. Being outdoors in the sunshine and having one last tea party with girlfriends before becoming a wife is a nostalgic and happy event. So break out the good china and get ready to mingle with style.

Everyone loves at least one kind of tea, so make sure you have plenty of options. Classic tea tins in pastel colors filled with all sorts of teas makes for a beautiful and easy set-up. Drape tables in white lace tablecloths and use old teakettles as the home for pale pink roses or white hydrangeas. Post up paper pom poms and clothespins of photos of the bride and groom. Have tables set with china plates, tea cups and saucers, and vintage gold silverware. Hang up cloth ribbon tassels in more pastel hues and create a backdrop with well wishes for the bride behind the main food table. A simple cake in mint frosting with a teacup topper surrounded by teacups of all sizes filled with jellybeans, fruit, lorna doone cookies, and vanilla wafers look gorgeous and taste absolutely brilliant with the tea itself. Tea sandwiches with flavors such as cucumbers and scones with spreads of hazelnut, cocoa, and blackberry jam are perfect brunch fare as well.

Favors and activities can be just as easy to put together with the tea party theme as well. Obviously, elegantly packaged tea bins, or even tea cup sets are great ideas for guest gifts. Games for guests should be light and fun, so opt for a bridal bingo, or a spill the tea activity in which guests answer questions about the bride.
