Tea Themed Bridal Shower
Before we get to the fun, let’s talk about the bridal shower essentials. Here’s what you need to know for how to plan a tea themed bridal shower.
What Is a Tea Themed Bridal Shower
A tea themed shower is great for the bride-to-be who obviously likes to drink tea. It’s not just about the beverage, though — this theme can be entwined with a kitchen theme (kettles, teacups, fine china, etc. on the registry). This theme also works well if the bride likes vintage styles, tv shows like Downton Abbey or The Crown, follow the Royal Family stories, etc. :)
When is the Best Time of Year to Plan One
A tea-themed wedding shower is appropriate for any time of year, any season at all; however, we do see more tea-themed showers taking place in the spring and summer, although that is likely because of the emphasis on floral patterns and pastel colors. :)
Where Should You Host a Tea Themed Wedding Shower
Ideally, a tea room! If you have one in your area, of course. I recently attended a tea themed bridal shower at a tea room at The Royal Treat Tea Room and wow, it was amazing. They also bake their own fresh scones, so you can imagine what a treat it was!
If you’re not sure of a tea room in your area, it’s easy: just Google “tea room near me” or “tea room in…” and enter your location in the search. You’ll see a map of available tea rooms in your area. Many are available to host parties and bridal showers, just ask!
Banquet Hall or Restaurant
Any banquet hall where you would host a shower is a great place to plan a tea themed bridal shower. The magic in this theme is all the details you add to it, so really… any location will do!
A bridal shower hosted in your home is a great idea for this theme, too! :)
For the menu, a light luncheon is suggested: quiches or sandwiches, soup, and salad is a great menu for this theme. Make sure you have plenty of tea, scones, cookies, and cake!
Now that you know what, when, and where… let’s talk about how to plan a tea themed bridal shower! Here’s everything you need to make sure your wedding shower is perfect from start to finish.
Every great party begins with… an invitation! Here are a few to choose from, depending on what style and color palette you prefer.
