Recently I went to a Victorian tea bridal shower; a nice twist to what can sometimes predictably be a lengthy present opening, women only, sandwich munching bridal shower. Well there were sandwiches, and lots of women, but for some reason a tea party can make everything just seem so much more fun! It was a great occasion to don extravagant hats, pretty gloves, and other appropriate tea time attire.
Each guest brought a vintage tea cup and saucer, with a little story. At the end of the party the bride to be gets to take home an eclectic variety of tea cups and saucers that each have a unique story or memory.
