As the weather begins to warm up and the winter gloves start coming off, you’ve probably noticed a few more people walking around with shiny new engagement rings on their fingers. Winter, filled with so many romantic holidays like New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day, typically brings with it an onslaught of engagements. If you are one of the many friends or family members who have graciously offered to hold a bridal shower for the bride to be, this is when things begin to get stressful for you. No matter when the wedding is, spring and summer are perfect times to throw showers. Read on to learn how you can throw the perfect bridal shower tea for your bride to be.
The bride and groom aren’t the only ones sending out save the dates this year. If you’re hosting a tea-themed bridal shower, we recommend setting the tone with some beautiful stationery. Websites like minted and Esty make it easy to find and customize invitations for your needs. We personally love these sweet invitations we found on Etsy.
No tea party is complete without beautiful flowers. We love using pastel-colored buds and throwing in fresh greenery wherever possible. Eucalyptus not only smells amazing, it looks gorgeous in a flower arrangement. Want to get creative? Place a few flowers into your favorite Harney tins or create a DIY chair garland for the bride to make her feel even more special.
Whether you decide to cater the bridal shower or make everything yourself, we recommend serving small, finger foods which are traditionally offered at an afternoon tea. Finger sandwiches are not only easy to eat, but they are easy to make. Allrecipes has a great selection of recipes for tea parties if you decide to go it on your own.
Obviously, you need tea at your tea party, but no celebration is complete without a little champagne. We often offer both iced teas and hot teas so there is something for everyone. We also love the idea of creating a brews and bubbles bar so guests can help themselves to whatever they prefer — tea, bubbly or both!
Don’t send your guests home empty handed! Our Tagalong Tins make the perfect little bridal shower gift. Choose our popular Wedding Tea or another of our 11 flavors and place one at each place setting before your guests arrive.

The twirling brown leaves and golden tips of the world’s greatest Assam black teas yield lovely honey and malty flavors, a little like the maltiness of a good beer. Assams are also among the most assertive and brisk of the black teas. It’s no accident: The more quickly a tea is made, the brisker the body. And everything about Assam tea is fast.
