"Will You be my Bridesmaid" Tea Party




The table is set, the excitement begins! Teatime is the perfect time to share your wedding plans with your girlfriends. Our bride is also going to pop the big question, "Will You?"


She's given this a lot of thought and set the table with elements that will convey her wedding colors and ideas; rustic and shabby chic mixed for elegance and charm. The table is set with a Tea with Marie Table cloth layered over a long full skirt, pink tea napkins and glittered burlap placemats.


The bride has used her white luncheon dishes and Grandmother's vintage teacups. Stacked on the white dishes are cute paper plates that coordinate with the 3 tiered centerpiece. (Found online from Talking Tables) 


The tea party favors, set at each friend's placesetting are actually her Bridesmaid Gifts, dressed in burlap & lace.

Glass salt shakers are the perfect size for a posy of flowers at each place. Vintage broaches from Grandma make darling place card holders.

Rustic Charm and Shabby Chic are shining at her tea table!
