All weddings are special occasions. A bridal shower is meant to pamper your little girl or your best friend before they begin a whole new life. But in this day and age people have very little time for too complicated affairs to be arranged. To avoid too elaborate planning and arrangements simply plan a bridal shower tea party, which can be a lot of fun with little confusion or headache. In case you want an elaborate party, it is best to outsource the entire preparation to the wedding planner who you have chosen for the wedding.
The history of Tea Parties
The British working class, who loved to relish their tea in leisure during breaks, originally established tea parties. It soon spread to all classes and all countries around the world as an immensely popular and extravagant affair. Most people enjoy snacks being served with tea. The other is the "high" tea party where the tea is served with heavy snacks or a meal later in the evening.
Most of the time the best of linen, teapot warmers, silver ware and china are used to add grace to the party. If the bridal shower is over high tea, use fine silver, scented candles and small dim lights along with mellow music. This lends an air of refined and elegant ambience. But if you like a lot of jazz and dance then you should definitely arrange for a groovy DJ who will rock your party with the latest music and shaking bodies.
For an afternoon tea party, serve in a buffet style with appropriate decorations for the various dishes on offer. Snacks for the afternoon tea party should be fluffy and tasty biscuits, sandwiches, sweets, teacakes, salads and cookies with very light desserts. Add the personal touch with the bride's name on the special cake and decor.
Create fantastic favors for the bridal shower with innovative flower and gift arrangement. You can also make it memorable with jazzy songs and performances for entertainment. One other thing that most people like to do at bridal showers is to play games. Bridal shower games are meant to be entertaining and fun. Guests can also narrate various stories and anecdotes on love to celebrate the eternal joy of wedding.
There are numerous different styles of bridal showers you can throw. You do not have to stick with the usual bridal shower. You can pick from any colors and play any type of games that you think would be something the bride would enjoy. The sky is the limit!
