Hosting An Afternoon Tea Bridal Shower

I hosted a shower for my soon-to-be sister-in-law recently and it was really lovely. I went with a traditional tea menu of scones, petit fours, quiche, macarons, finger sandwiches, and of course tea! My dad collected mismatched tea cups from yard sales for several months, and all the ladies took their tea cup with a tea bag home as their favor. The country club has tea cups of course, but I thought this was a cute touch. I used the additional teacups and sauces for mini floral arrangements. I just picked up some flowers a Fresh Market. I also used my grandmother's (now mine!) silver tea pot as a vase.





(I got this 3 tier stand at Bed Bath and Beyond and love it!!)


(DIY'ed this tassel garland. Have ya'll looked at these online? They are stupid expensive. I used this tutorial)

{I ordered the tags for the tea bags from this Etsy shop. They said 
"Love is brewing <3 08.24.3013="" bridal="" leann="" p="" s="" shower="">


I ordered the "Happily Ever After" drink stirs/flags from the same Etsy shop.

What a gorgeous shower (great food!) and I really love the idea of the tea cups as a gift for attendees. So sweet.

What a fun shower! And I'm with April on the tea cups as shower gifts - so useful and unique.

And that DIY Tassel banner that you made is perfect for wedding season!
