Vintage Tea Party Bridal Shower

Bridal Shower In Vintage Tea Party Theme

If you are planning a bridal shower in the near future- I have the perfect shower theme to inspire you.  The vintage tea party theme is trending right now for bridal showers.  It’s classic and sophisticated.  Plus all the ladies can dress up and you can encourage all the guests to wear a big hat for the shower. Make it a true soiree with requested dress attire – you could even provide a box of vintage found hats for the guests to wear.  Today, I am featuring some amazing tea party tablescapes.

This is a fairly easy bridal shower theme to put together.  To keep it under budget- ask around to see if you can borrow a family member’s vintage china or visit a thrift store and buy a mash up of old tea cups and saucers.  Yep, a mix and match of china is absolutely fine for this set up and would even look stunning. Add in some vintage mason jars and vintage or new decorative tea pots for your flower vases.

To get the look of the vintage tea party you will want plenty of flowers and most set ups feature fresh roses in light pink and white and accents of baby’s breath.

Although, you can still pull off the look with silk flowers as well.  This shower above features silks glued around a painted decorative wood picture frame and it looks just as beautiful as fresh flowers.  Add in some elements of gold with gold candlesticks or gold plated utensils and of course don’t forget to drape pearls here and there.

Lace is a must for this theme. Use it as bunting, for your tablecloth and even draped it across frames and as a table backdrop. If you can’t find vintage lace linens- there is no shortage of new table linens in lacy patterns and designs – you can even use curtains in sheer lace fabric.  Paper doilies on all your plates will look so shabby chic too.  Most tea parties feature a sweets table but I recommend offering some healthy options too- such as strawberries and raspberries.

Ask the bride for some old photos of herself and the groom, either growing up as kids or the two of them together, and use them at the event.  Black and white is best (color photos can be professionally transitioned to black and white- or you can even photocopy color photos in black and white) and they can be added to picture frames or even hang them up as a bunting.

One last tip for the shower- bring in a bit of violet color in your flowers or shower decor.  This year’s color pick by Pantone is Ultra Violet and the tea party theme is perfect for adding in this shade of color. Be sure to spend some time asking the bride about her likes and dislikes for food and decor as well.  Add in a personal touch and surprise her.  Maybe she loves daisies or strawberry shortcake and would love that you remembered this and included it at her shower.

Come back next week to the The Party Fetti website – I will be featuring big balloons for weddings and for amazing photo shoot ideas!

Party Decorations In Situ

PARTY DECORATIONS ON DISPLAY AT THE PARTY

I always love to see my reader’s and Etsy shop buyer’s party decorations purchased from my shops on display! Today I am sharing a few of their photos at their parties and baby showers that they have shared with me! I love the hanging fans display for a baby shower above! Congrats on the new little girl!

Keep in mind that I am now in full swing for wedding and party season, which is generally my busiest time of year in the spring and summer, so you may not see as many updates and new posts throughout the coming months here on the blog.  I promise I will try to inspire and share some amazing ideas when I can, but expect about a week in between the updates until next September.  I wish I had more time in the day to get it all done!

Now for some amazing party inspiration from my very own shoppers!

This rainbow party is so fun and colorful!  The background was created with 30 of my rainbow hanging tissue fans.

Above is a party featuring my 36 inch size balloons with balloon tissue tassels and a background with my tissue tassel garland. Below is a birthday tea party with my smaller 24 inch confetti balloons in the pastel confetti mix!

Here is a Kite and Pinwheel Birthday party featuring a kite banner (simplified) and custom made pinwheels.  Perfect for a March party!  Check out all my available banners in my shop- HERE

Come back in a week and I’ll share an easy diy party table background tutorial to create on a budget! You’ll love it, its that simple and so cheap to put together!

Pinwheel Party in Pastels

PAPER PINWHEELS PASTEL PARTY

Hey You! It has been a little bit of a lag in between my writing here on The Party Fetti Blog.  Expect that to be the norm from now until the end of September.  I have been very busy with more and more custom orders coming in from my event planners and my five Etsy shops.  Yes, I have FIVE shops! All a bit different and all wonderful handmade goodness, plus my newest adventure with custom craft kits and crafting supplies with the READY SET CRAFT KITS shop.

And it is only going to get much busier as the weather warms up for weddings and more outdoor events.  In case you didn’t know – my Etsy shops are only a small portion of my business – I actually work as a vendor directly for 37 event planners and wedding planners all over the world.  Every spring and summer, I ship my designer party favors, all handmade and ready to go, to every corner of this planet- France, England, Australia, Hong Kong and everywhere else. My pinwheels are my biggest seller and I start making them in bulk as Spring and Summer approaches. I have actually made 500 pinwheels in one day.  Whew- oh the blisters!

Here is a pretty pinwheel themed party featuring

All the sweets feature edible tiny pinwheels as well.  YUM!  That cake!

While I don’t make edible pinwheels for food, I certainly offer the real deal and they even spin.

 I love the idea of SPINNING PINWHEELS on a cake!  I offer these in my
