If you read my blog regularly, you would know that my middle sister is soon getting married, and I am SO excited for her! It has been a busy year of getting ready for the upcoming nuptials, and of course, the bridal shower. From the moment she got engaged the planning started. We wanted pink. Lots and lots of pink. And as you can tell by the title of this post, we were going for a tea party theme.
We found the PERFECT space right downtown Hamilton at a place called the Stables at Whitehern. (Check out some of the great historical sites you can rent in our wonderful city!). It was the perfect size, cozy, and the stone walls, and old feel made a perfect setting. They supplied all the tables, and even better, all the china tea cups! Not only was the inside perfect, but the beautiful surrounding gardens made for a great mini photo shoot!
Here is a brief glimpse into our tea party shower:
What is a tea party without tea? We decided to go with a loose leaf tea party, while also having some pre-packed tea bags. (Note the really pretty coffee filter peonies we made for all the center pieces! Tutorial coming SOON!)
Beside each type of tea, we even made up a cute little tag to explain what it was.
And a tea party isn’t complete without some Iced tea!
We made sure all the sweet desserts matched the wedding colour theme. By the grooms request, we were asked to keep pink to a minimum at the wedding, so clearly we went all out for the shower. And when I say go all out with the pink, I mean it! We even had pink bread made for our sandwiches!
Mom’s find on Pinterest – tea bag cookies! ‘Julie and Wes – a perfect blend’. Awww!
And of course, no shower is complete without the small gifts to hand out to the guests – 3 2 1 cake!
The shower turned out fabulous. Everyone loved the venue, and enjoyed all the treats – and all the pink! The bride was also really excited to see what we had put together!
Congrats again Julie, so excited and happy for you. Can’t wait for a Baby shower one day!!! 🙂
