Tea Party - Baby Shower
One of the most popular themes for a baby shower is that of a ‘Tea Party’. There are a lot of beautiful decorating ideas, recipes and gifts that you could work with to throw this wonderful themed baby shower.
Start with getting tea party invitations to reflect this theme and set a tone for the event. If you can’t find the tea party invitation cards then simply design your own. See our post on Do-It-Yourself Baby shower invitations. Some ideas for design could be to cut out the invitations in tea pot shapes or to create an invitation that looks like a tea bag cover.
If you are not having an intimate gathering of a few or don’t want to bust out your good china, use exquisite fancy paper dinnerware such as the Caspari Collection. Mix and match to create your unique style for the tea party.
The menu could be absolutely delicious for this baby shower! Serve delectable treats such as mini sandwiches, pastries, biscuits and scones. Check out Joy of Baking for scrumptious tea party treats. You could select a variety of exotic and herbal teas for the beverage bar. However, keep in mind that some teas are not safe for pregnant women to drink.
For the main table centerpiece try our 3-tier My Tea Party- Baby Diaper Cake. Its beautifully designed with 45 diapers, baby clothes, toys, silk flowers and ribbons. For favour ideas, check out our post on Tea Party – Favour Ideas.
Its an elegant theme that the mom-to-be and guests are sure to enjoy!
