Being part of a bride tribe is a big deal—it’s both a special honor and a bit of an undertaking. This vintage tea party bridal shower also doubles as a bridesmaids reveal that celebrates the bridesmaids as much as it celebrates the bride-to-be. Guests were treated to a special luncheon filled with delicious food, tasty bubbly and personalized gifts.
Give your tea party a charming spin with an antique tablescape. Go thrifting at the local antique market to dig up old teapots, teacup and saucer sets and salad plates. Don’t worry about matching pieces together (the more eclectic, the better). Mismatched tableware means you’ll end up with a beautiful spectrum of colors and textures.
