Celebrate the bride-to-be with a gorgeous tea party bridal shower! This bridal shower tea party is fabulous, feminine, and incorporates family keepsakes.
Traditional brides will love the idea of a vintage tea party bridal shower with fancy hats, pretty dresses and vintage tea cups and dishes. It’s a time where the bride-to-be can spend time with friends and family sipping tea, nibbling on tea sandwiches, indulging in the delectable desserts and cake, and playing fun games.
Bridal shower tea parties are a great way to celebrate the bride-to-be and her anticipated wedding day. Tea party bridal showers are perfect for a more intimate affair with close friends and family. A bridal tea usually has lighter fare with a smaller menu than most other bridal showers. The decorations and color scheme are simple and feminine. Tea party bridal shower favors may include a tea cup filled with treats or the bride-to-be’s favorite tea. So if you’re looking for tea party bridal shower ideas, this event is a great place to get some inspiration.
For this lucky bride-to-be, the day was thoughtfully planned out by her sister who surprised her with a fabulous tea party themed bridal shower. A tea party bridal shower was the perfect theme for this girly girl who grew up playing dress up and carrying around purses everywhere she went. The tea party theme was inspired by the bride-to-be’s rich heritage and the decoration ideas were a nod to her younger years. Guests reminisced about the bride-to-be and her dress wearing, purse carrying days.
The bridal shower decor included vintage furniture and props, and tea cups and dishes that were collected from various trips around the world by the bride’s late great-grandmother. The occasion was the perfect time to incorporate those special family keepsakes. What a great way to remember the bride-to-be’s great-grandmother. Old photos of the bride with friends and family were hung around the room and each guest was greeted and given a hat and gloves to wear for the special occasion.
