Tea Party Baby Shower
Tea party baby shower themes; might be one of the best, contemporary baby shower ideas, to date.
Tea parties are a great way to entertain. Guests and mommy-to-be, can relax, and enjoy the company of one another. Everyone can have fun playing a
trivia game, word find, or word scramble.
Ideas for themes
You can pick a theme that complements a tea party baby shower, but it’s not necessary. These are really cute themes to keep in mind:
- Alice in wonderland
- Peter Rabbit (Beatrix Potter)
- Classic children’s books
- Nursery Rhymes and Mother Goose
- Teddy bears in pearls
Brew the Perfect Cup of Tea
Just a little imagination can go a long way
Decorate tables with mini gardening pots filled with
plants or flowers. If you do plan to have some sort of a game, choose one that’s passive (baby trivia or word scrambles are some examples). Put flower-pens in vases or decorated pots. Guests can use the pens for the shower game, then take them home
as a fun, party favor.
We love this easy and unique, game idea. Give your guests cute, scratch-off game cards. It’s like they were made for a tea party baby shower.
I love this idea from HGTV. Ribbons and safety pins in place of napkin rings. Plastic pacifier favors, or even real pacifiers make great napkin rings too!
Paper plates and cups won’t cut it. Pull out your china, or use dishes that are simple, plain, or have a dainty pattern. Cups and saucers do not have to be a perfect match especially, if you need to scrape serving pieces together.
Baby shower locations
- Host your event in a garden, on a pretty patio, a breezy-screen porch, or your backyard. A large dining room, or living room with tables tops and seating will work just fine too. Scatter the tables and room with tea lights and roses for a softer feel.
- Check the accommodations at local restaurants, tea houses, nature centers, arboretums, banquet rooms, hotels, country clubs, or community centers as possible locations too.
Choose the time, before you plan the menu
There are four traditional slots you can plan around:
This is simpler than the rest, but, it’s probably too light for a baby
shower. Scones, cream and jams are served with English Tea, along with
the usual condiments, milk, honey, sugar, cream.
Be sure to offer a non-dairy option; soy or almond milk can be purchased
at your local market.
Light Tea, is just that. Tea is served with cakes, scones, and other breads, or light pastries. Again, too light for a baby shower.
Low Tea is served as a lunch. Cucumber sandwiches,or other
finger sandwiches are served with scones, cake, and other pastries. To
bulk up the menu, consider serving a fruit platter as well.
High Tea is served in the evening (4pm, or later) and you
guessed it, a dinner menu is served. Soup, meat, eggs, cheese, bread
and butter are the standard selections. The meal ends with scones and
cake. Of course, with each menu, baby shower cake or cupcakes can be
served in place of other pastries or cakes.
It’s a good idea to offer a variety of teas to guests.
Mom-to be will most likely wish to avoid caffeine, herbal tea, and mint
tea. However, flavored fruit teas and ginger tea are favorites among many pregnant women.
