Tea Party Ideas & Inspiration For A Sensational Bridal Shower

There is something warm, inviting and wonderfully therapeutic about tea parties don’t you think? The enticing aroma of brewing tea, fine intricate china and those moorish sweet delicacies with an allure hard to resist. There’s also the excuse to catch up on some serious gossip with your girlfriends. So time to spark your ‘inner hostess’ with this pretty collection of tea party inspiration and bridal shower ideas!

Bridal ShowerFor many of us, the tea party is a nostalgic event transporting us back to our childhood days. I distinctly remember how wonderful it felt to act all grown up and sophisticated and play “tête-à-tête.” I would painstakingly set up my colorful kiddy table with four pretty plastic tea cups and saucers, fill them with bright red raspberry cordial and make a display of my favorite butter cookies. Then acting the perfect hostess, I would carefully serve each one of my VIP guests (Mr Teddy, Miss Barbie and my Siamese feline Kimba) and “wax lyrical” throughout the afternoon.

It will always be and elegant and fun way to entertain a group of friends no matter the occasion.

Bouquet Cupcakes For Serious Cupcake Connoisseurs

When it comes to pretty sweets you can’t go past bouquet cupcakes. They deliciously add a whimsical touch to a wedding or an unexpected element of surprise to a pretty bridal shower. Whatever the occasion (I need no excuse!), they will always appear elegant, sophisticated and seriously adorable. Which if you’re like me, puts you in a serious dilemma, you’ll want to cherish one as long as possible and gobble it to bits at the same time.

Bouquet Cupcakes

One of my favorite designs is this divine mini cupcake bouquet from Martha Stewart Weddings (don’t forget to grab the recipe). Pretty as a picture, this vanilla cupcake is adorned with a bouquet of ivory, lemon and pink Swiss meringue rosettes. I also love this adorable strawberry flowers cupcake from Call Me Cupcake. Whilst technically not a cupcake bouquet, it still features a pretty bunch of delicate handmade flowers balanced on thick swirls of icing. And I adore how it is presented. Beautifully encased in a wax paper muffin case and tied with a dainty ribbon – absolute perfection!

Whilst I’m on a roll, I’ve also decided to include more cupcake bouquet designs to drool over. Just feast your eyes on these . . . (then let me know which one you would choose to dish up for your guests!)
