I love afternoon tea. It’s such an elegant form of appreciating food and socializing. A tea enthusiast myself, I really love to just sit back and sip tea leisurely refilling my teacup with various flavors.  I also love to try a little bit of everything which is why “afternoon tea” or “high tea” is perfect with the set-up of a variety of petite desserts and cute dainty sandwiches that give you a good sample of each and every flavor on the spread. 

So, needless to say, I jumped at the chance to throw a “Baby is Brewing” tea party baby shower for my sister who is currently expecting her first baby. The theme is a lot of fun to work with and the set up of tea cups, tea pots and flowers make for a gorgeous tablescape in it of itself. With the help of my sister’s  BFFs, my mother, and sister in law we were able to gather more than enough tea cups and saucers and a beautiful array of tea pots, tiered platters, and pitchers. An intimate gathering of close friends, good food, and silly games, this was a lovely baby affair to celebrate a beautiful mommy to be!

We hung some paper lanterns and made a banner that said ” A baby is brewing”. All the beautiful china we had set out on the table scape, with a few tea pots, tea cups, and pitchers filled with large blooms of hydrangeas and roses were enough to set the lovely and dainty decor. I found adorable little cake plates that looked like real porcelain plates from and matching “scrumptious” pink napkins. For the take home favors, which always need to be a functional and useful gift in my opinion, I found beautiful glass coasters with the design of a lace doily within it. Perfect! We scattered some rubber duckies and ABC block candles throughout the table to keep with the baby aspect of the theme. It all came together quite nicely without being too over the top with decor and departing from the usual balloons, banners, centerpieces, etc.
