Vintage Tea Party Bridal Shower

Looking for a fresh bridal shower theme?  How about throwing a vintage style tea party? We recently styled this shoot to showcase several local Seattle vendors including Tallant House Bakery, Trophy Cupcakes, and Bella Cupcake Couture Wrappers. We chose a lush cheery color palate of spring green, pink and pale yellow and accented it with all the soft vintage floral motifs found on the tea cups and pots.  We stiched up throw pillows, a rose table runner and cloth napkins to bring our custom touch to the table design.
The delectable entremet chocolate cake is sitting atop a Clara French scalloped pedestal ready to be served on her matching darling dessert plates.
We nestled the vintage tea pots  in between towers of Trophy cupcakes and french macaroons by Tallant House.
Our handmade pillows spruced up a vintage couch and matched the gorgeous macaroons perfectly. 
Each setting was dressed with its own one of a kind vintage tea cup, springy green dessert plate by Clara French a top a cream and gold vintage plate.  We hand made dessert napkins and wrapped them in silk ribbon and found the perfect gold dessert flatware to match the gold etching on the cups and teapots.

We love this little vignette with the matching tea set and luscious pink petaled Trophy cupcake. (Thank you card designed by Astrid Mueller. ) The paper doily place mat was laser cut for us by Amy Bengtson.  The next image shows the vast array of scrumptious Trophy flavors to pick from perfect for a shower setting as each guest can select her favorite flavors.  They look so pretty on the Clara French pink tiered dessert stand.  Each cupcake is dressed up in a custom decorative paper wrapper to match the color scheme.  This is a perfect theme for a intimate girly shower to celebrate with close friends and family.

  1. These pictures are charming. I think your last picture shows a chocolate pot and cups for chocolate, though. Chocolate used to be served as a beverage in bed, on a tray. Tea or chocolate, your pictures are lovely.
