Bridal Shower Theme: Creative Tea Party Ideas
This is the ideal party theme for mixing and matching. Think old and new. Skip the traditional table linen and use assorted handkerchiefs in designs and palettes you’re drawn to. Choose serving pieces and plates that naturally fit. Serve tea cakes, sweet tea, and be sure there are fresh flowers all around.

Think outside-the-box and take advantage of the creative elements surrounding your theme. Tea canisters make elegant vessels for holding just about any bloom.
The Party Props
Maybe you won’t get the guest of honor to wear one of these crafty creations, but the little ladies will appreciate the festive attire. Start with paper cups, poke holes on the side for stringing ribbon through, and adorn with stickers and embelishments.

If you’re envisioning a fun activity for the party day, let the ladies design their own tea cups. Place a basket of different flavors and blends by the door so guests can pick their favorites and take them home.
