Tea Party Ideas - How to Host a Tea PartyUnlike the wedding, engagement party or even the bachelorette party, the bridal shower is the one party along the way of wedding planning that is typically a reflection of the bride to be. After all, this is the one event that she doesn't have to share her spotlight with the groom! One of the most popular themes for a bridal shower is to host a tea party. Why? It's girly, it's cute and it's a fun way for the girls to get together and hang out - everyone remembers playing tea party when they were young!

A tea party can be held inside or outside, so either you or the weather will be the one to decide. Or you can book the party at a tea house. Decorations are pretty simple: skip the balloons and opt for simple floral centerpieces to coordinate with your color scheme. Or you can get really creative and visit your local thrift stop or vintage store and scour for some antique teapots or tea sets. They certainly don't have to match - a different set for each table, or even different pieces on each will create a comfy and eclectic feel. Or you can do a little online shopping or check out a few florists or craft stores in your area - at many of them you'll find giant tea cups that make great centerpieces too.

What to serve at a high tea party? Tea, of course! A fun idea is to create a tea bar: set aside a long table full of hot water and different types of tea bags and loose tea for your guests to choose from. Lay out sugar, honey, milk, mint sprigs, cinnamon and peppermint sticks (for stirring) so your guests can drink whatever they desire. A tea party is best to host around breakfast or brunch time, so you'll actually save a lot of money on food. Instead of a full course meal, opt for finger foods like tiny sandwiches, cheese and crackers, cookies, petit fours, scones, Biscotti, and even cupcakes.

Invite all of the ladies to wear their prettiest dress and come join the girls for a tea party. It'll certainly be a day to remember! Don't forget to check out all of our tea party favors for things like tea infusers and personalized tea for your guests!
