How to Throw the Perfect Bridal Shower Tea Party

Think back to your days of playing tea party with your best girlfriends wearing hot pink boas, fake pearl strands, long silk gloves, and oversized hats.

Bring that fun, feminine element back with the perfect bridal shower tea party!

What could be more elegant? A tea party themed bridal shower is a chic way to celebrate the future Mrs. and, it’s actually very simple to pull off.

The refreshments

Tea Party Cups and Treats

First, a bridal shower tea party consists of light refreshments – think scones, tea cakes, cupcakes, cute little sandwiches, etc. Make sure your guests know this is a light refreshment party, so that they can plan accordingly.

The drinks

As for the drinks, of course tea will be served!

Get fancy and serve both hot and chilled teas, or perhaps a cocktail. Offer cute sugar cubes and creamers in little glassware and consider adding fun candy to the party buffet such as conversation hearts, bubble gum balls, rock candy, pixie sticks and more!

The décor

Set the ‘stage’ for a sophisticated event. We suggest having the refreshments be buffet style, decorating the buffet and guest tables with doilies, linens, flowers, sequin confetti, etc. You could even use the same color scheme as the wedding to nicely tie the two events together.

The party favors

Are you considering sending guests home with a party favor?

You could easily and inexpensively send your guests home with favor bags filled with flavored teas and candies. Looking to send guests home with a little something extra? Cute teacups with a sweet treat and a bag of tea is the perfect little package!
