Tea Party Time: Bridal Shower Overview

Hi Everyone,

I am back!  Not only am I back but I never gave you a Bridal Shower overview!  I want to share how amazing everything was since I had a fabulous time!

The theme of the shower was a Tea Party and Cupcakes!

Tea Party

Our invitations were Tea Bride Invitations from The American Wedding.  There are both tea and cupcake items on the invitations!  Make sure you head over to check them out, they were completely customizable.

When guests walked in, there was a place to put the recipes that they brought and which table they were to sit at.

Bridal Shower Entrance
We went to thrift stores and bought tea cups and tea pots, they were really cheap!  We planted flowers into our tea pots using them as centerpieces, if you missed that post check it out here.  At the end we gave it to the oldest guest at each table.  Our guests loved it!
We also made Tea Cup Candles as favors for our guests.  They doubled as an additional centerpiece attraction.  People actually loved all of the different tea cups and being able to swap them with each other.  

Tea Party Centerpieces

While everyone waited around, we had a guessing game for people to guess how many pieces of candy were in the containers.  One jar was my favorite candy and the other was his!  We didn’t really want to do games, so this was the main one.
When I opened gifts, we had a 7 min timer.  Every time the timer went off, the person whose gift I was opening received a prize!  It kept everyone interested so they didn’t get bored watching me open the gifts.

I don’t have a picture of our food table but we had cucumber, turkey, and chicken salad finger sandwiches with a regular and a fruit salad.  We also served hot and cold tea for our beverages.

Dessert was everyone’s favorite part!  My maid of honor made red velvet and regular madelines, some were even dipped in chocolate.  They are one of my favorite cookies so I was extremely excited about them!
We also had sugar cookies made in the shape of tea cups, tea pots, and cupcakes.  There were cupcakes as well of course!
Lastly, my friend made Lemon Cheesecake Shortbread Bites.  She actually blogged about it too so make sure you check them out here!

Since I just got a new DSLR camera and we couldn’t find thank you’s online that Mother and I liked, we had a mini-photo shoot on the kitchen table!  Here was our favorite picture that we took, it incorporated everything from the shower.
I had them printed as photo cards and I sent the picture below as my thank you cards!  The theme of the bridal shower continued even through the thank yous.

I had the best time ever and I couldn’t have asked for a better bridal shower.  It flew by so fast but it was great seeing family and friends and celebrating our future marriage.  I not only had fun at the shower itself but making everything with my mother and bonding before I left “the nest”.
What is your favorite part of tea parties?
Happy Crafting,
