Inspiration for a Tea Party Baby Shower
For the floral and lace loving, springtime mama to be, her baby shower should be as dainty and lovely as she is. Today we’re sharing inspiration for a tea party baby shower that’s perfect for a spring baby shower!
Tea Time Location
There are many locations that would be perfect for a tea party baby shower – in the garden, at a vintage-inspired hotel, a church hall or even your own backyard.
Choose a venue that either matches your ideas for tea party decor or allows you to decorate how you’d like.
If hosting outside or in a garden, bring in tables to set up throughout the yard and cover them with pretty floral table cloths. Let the flowers and landscape be your decor with some simple floral centerpieces for the tables.
If you’re hosting inside at a venue that doesn’t totally match your theme, bring in your own decor to make it work! Fun photobooth backdrops, lots of florals and lace table cloths will help bring the tea party baby shower to life.
Tea Party Baby Shower Decor and Details
The decorations for your tea party baby shower should be soft and sweet with lots of floral inspiration.
Pink peonies, baby’s breath and garden roses are the perfect flower choices for this shower, mixing and matching them in teapots or tea canister vases as centerpieces for your tables and decor for different areas of your venue. Bring in some lace detail to the center of your tables with lace doilies, to add a touch of vintage charm to your shower decor.
Incorporate flowers into other areas of your decor as well – atop the cakes, in the backdrop of your photo booth or lounging area – even in the new mom’s hair with a pretty pink and white floral crown – you can never have too many flowers!
For dishes, find some mix and match vintage teacups for guests to use. With different dainty patterns and colors, these vintage dishes will bring an extra pop of color to your shower. Sweet, vintage inspired plates are a must for this theme as well! With pink and teal floral details, they’re a perfect fit for a tea party baby shower.
A Flavorful Menu
The menu for a tea party baby shower can be simple, flavorful and fun. Stick with savory little bites with lots of flavor – like brie + balsamic strawberries on crostinis, hummus and vegetables in little cups, cucumber and dill mini sandwiches and chicken salad on mini croissants.
In addition to the little bites that are packed with flavor, host a mini dessert bar as well. Sweet cake plates stacked with mini cakes, cookies and macaroons are perfect for your treat table. You can also place a pretty cupcake in a teacup for each guest to enjoy while mama opens up her gifts. With this set up, you’ll have plenty of goodies that will satisfy the mama-to-be and her guests’ sweet tooth.
Hosting a tea party baby shower is a perfect idea for a springtime mom that loves big blooms, soft colors and sweet treats. She and the new baby will feel showered with love after celebrating with their closest friends and family.
