A friend of mine got married this summer. None of her family lives here so I figured I would have a shower for her. Mostly because I love having parties and wanted an excuse to throw a tea party. Unfortunately for me, summers in Texas are hot.
Her wedding colors were peacock colors so I chose to decorate for the tea in blues and greens. I happen to enjoy the whole DIY look of decorating for parties and it just fit so perfectly with a tea party in these colors. I made a lot of tissue flowers and fans. And found various fabrics to drape over tables to give it texture. I suppose it was a sort of Mad Hatter looking party. I tied some old teacups to the lights to hang down and add some charm to the rooms we were in. I used some other teacups, pitchers, and creamers to arrange some flowers for the party too. Aren’t they cute?
Because it was hotter than hot outside, I had some lemonade and iced tea. A few of us had hot tea. There were various finger sandwiches, scones, cookies, fruit tarts, and other yummy goodies. The whole thing was fun. I love any excuse to have a party, especially one where someone gets gifts. The Canopy has a lot of brides who register here and have fun showers all the time. And look! We have some great serving pieces you can use to host your own party!
