First, secure a location that is ideal for vintage bridal shower ideas, like a tea theme. An authentic setting will set the tone for your special day. Tufted chairs, lace table cloths, ornate moldings, and floral tapestries are some of the elements you should look for in a venue that will complement a tea party theme.
Next, send out your invitations. You can purchase a number of invitations that have flowers and tea pots on them, to relay the message that your shower is themed. Be sure to hold the shower at tea time and use traditional wording since this type of bridal party is a very sophisticated and formal affair.
Also, begin to consider food and beverages that you wish to serve your ladies. A tea party shower is one of the most popular bridal shower themes and ideas because every aspect can conform to the classic theme. Serve cucumber sandwiches, crudité, fruit salad, finger sandwiches, tea cookies and cakes, and of course some flavored tea! Serve the tea in vintage tea cups and saucers, with sugar cubes and cream. Your guests will be stunned at your ability not to deviate from the tea party bridal shower theme.
While enjoying your tea and treats, be sure to have soft, classical music playing in the background, or for those who love ideas that wow friends and family members, hire a classical pianist. You may also wish to look the part of sophisticated women enjoying their afternoon tea. Have each guest bring a hat suitable for bridal tea event, or contact a costume shop to rent unique hats and fascinators for each lady. Don’t forget to also lay a pair of silky white glove on each place setting, encouraging your lady friends to slip them on to get in the true spirit of a tea party.
Finally, you need to consider how you are going to send your guests off with a thank you gift. Personalized bridal shower favors are a favorite among the bride to be and her guests. You can purchase a tea cup and saucer embossed in your guests’ monograms. You can also give each guest a small, wooden box with their initials carved in it and place several flavored tea bags in them so they can enjoy a fresh brewed cup at home.
Your tea party bridal shower can be brilliant from start to finish by following some of the tips and suggestions above.
