Real Bridal Shower & Inspiration: M Loves M Tea Party

29 Apr

Mara, bride to be and blogger of M Loves M, posted her bridal shower a couple weeks ago. The tea party shower was coordinated by her maid of honor, who nailed the overall theme with shabby chic details and mini finger foods.

Want to throw your own bridal tea party shower for your bride?

1. Go with a vintage, grown-up vibe and avoid the cheesey and childish, ala Disney.

2. Mix and match linens and table settings, but stay in the same color family.  A quick search on Ebay, and you can find inexpensive tea cup and saucer sets. Also try some thrift and vintage stores if there are ones near by to you.

3. The theme starts with the invitation.  Try this one by Vistaprint:

4. Serve the classics: cucumber sandwiches (easy to make and inexpensive), scones with jam, and of course, tea!

5. For the favor, gift attendees a little goody bag of a few mis-matched flavors of tea and this adorable tea caddy.
