Bridal or Baby Shower Tea Celebration

Increasingly popular are “teas” that offer a luxurious way to pass an afternoon celebrating with special people and friends. Teas can be created indoors or outdoors, if the weather is good. Consider holding your tea shower in a lovely garden, on a lawn under umbrellas, canopies, or a beautiful tree. Patios and balconies are also ideal for this. In or out, you’ll find it a pleasure to be the hostess of a unique shower that gently speaks to the elegance and charms of earlier times. This is the perfect time to bring out your finest linens, china and silver. If you don’t have enough, try mixing and matching by borrowing, renting or buying some odd pieces either used or new.
