So I’m putting together some inspiration boards to show the other bridesmaids for my bestie’s wedding. This is the one I have come up with for the tea party theme. What do you think? The color scheme would be light blue, navy blue, pink, yellow, white and green. Would you want to come to a bridal shower like this?

Nothing? How could I improve it?

I think we just need more info. I think the tea party idea is really cute. Have you looked at venue options yet?

It’d be cute out in a garden. Particularly if you tied in a wee bit of Alice in Wonderland charm… I say serve a few gourmet teas… I recommend Egyptian Mint, Pomegranate Green Tea, and Honey Vanilla Chamomile.

I’m a huge fan of tea houses and tea parties but its not really my friends’ scene (I have honestly been begging them for 7(!) years for us as a group to go to this tea house) so as long as you think it would be a theme that would fit most of the guests’ personality I would say go for it! i
I agree with @SoontobeMrsA: that we need some more info.
Its a theme thats very adaptable to any location, so it would look great in a house or even someone’s nice backyard.
Oh and if you plan on using vintage tea cups like you have shown, try to start collecting now. I think its one of those things that seem to disappear when you need them, but you see them everywhere when you don’t. 🙂

I love everything on your inspiration board! If you are already collecting vintage tea cups, you can maybe expand the vintage romantic theme into other areas, like stacking classic books on the tables in various heights and placing the cups on those to supplement the centerpieces.
It looks like you are already off to a good start! Keep us updated! There have been some cute Alice in Wonderland shower invites on the blog here as well– you should peak at those parties!

Hells yes! I think it’s a great idea 🙂
My sister and aunt are throwing me a Marie Antoinette tea party shower. Really it’s just afternoon tea with desserts reminiscent of the Laduree desserts featured in the movie by Sophia Coppola. I love all the pastels you’ve chosen and I think it’s a great theme. I have to agree with dolphindoll about the teacups. My mother is helping collect them and so far only has 1 (of about 30)…so I told her I’d look too since I’m in another state and I’ve only found 2 (so 3 of 30). Still a long way to go and only a few months to collect! I found them to be pretty expensive at antique stores ($10-$20) and much cheaper at thrift stores like Goodwill.

My Maid/Matron of Honor had a mad tea party for me! I was going to share the facebook link, but the album contains the after festivities too and it is pretty bad!

I think a banner out of vintage hankies like this would be adorable:

I LOVE this idea! I wanted a tea party for my bridal shower, but we couldn’t find a good place to host it. I think it’s super cute and fun, and when else are you going to be able to throw a tea party?
