You know that we’re crazy about wedding theme ideas here, and that doesn’t limit to weddings alone. We also love themed bridal showers, like a tea themed bridal shower as one example. Today we’re showing a unique invitation idea you can do yourself. This tea bag bridal shower invitation is cut into the shape of a tea bag and is ACTUALLY FILLED WITH TEA. Guests receive the invitation, admire its adorableness, and then just snip the side and pour themselves a hot cuppa tea. Cute, right?

Bri tells us, “They set up a really fun photo booth with a neat back drop. It stands out to me because I am used to seeing photo booths with plain backdrops. I also loved the ceremony backdrop. It was shredded fabric, and very unique. They painted and sprayed coke and wine bottles for their table decor. They also had pictures of themselves strung up on a wall. It was so cute and really gave me insight into their cute love story.”

That’s how much they’re loved. Today we’re answering an Ask Emmaline question from Marie, who asks, “I’m hanging mason jar vases for my ceremony aisle. What size should I use?” Read on to find out…
