Wondering how to throw a Tea Party Baby Shower? Then read on!
A Tea Party Baby Shower is one of the prettiest Baby Shower themes around and loved by Guests!
Follow our guide to plan the perfect Tea Party Baby Shower. In addition, this theme also works really well if you are planning a smaller Baby Sprinkle party!
Tea Party Baby Shower Decor
This is the perfect theme for pretty pastels and delicate florals and works equally well with subtle colors or brighter hues.
However, I like to choose the tableware first and then base the color scheme around that.
Best Baby Shower Tea Party Tableware ideas
If you have (or can borrow) any vintage cups, saucers and plates, these will be perfect! A Tea Party Baby Shower needs the prettiest tableware you can get your hands on, so beg, steal, and borrow! Also, charity shops can be great places to pick up some bargain plates. And if they don’t match, no problem! It just means you get more pretty designs!
If you can’t get hold of any vintage China, these gorgeous paper plates and cups are a great option. I love the pretty colors and the variety within each pack, including napkins.
Other pretty additions to the table include:
- Lace tablecloth (again a Charity shop is a great source for this)
- Flowers (either in small jars or vases)
- Cake stand (this pretty one is one of my faves)
- There is also a matching teaset which is beautiful and works perfectly with this theme
Tea Party Baby Shower Invitations
Set the scene for the party with a Tea Party Baby Shower themed invite in matching colors to your décor. These pretty invites are one of my favorites…
I like to include the phrase “Please wear your best tea party attire” on the invite to encourage pretty tea dresses and florals.
Tea Party Baby Shower Food
I love creating the menu for a Tea Party Baby Shower. It’s actually very simple to follow a traditional high tea menu.
Your choice of thinly sliced white or brown bread, crusts removed. My favorite fillings include
- cheese and pickle
- ham and mustard
- egg mayonnaise
- thinly sliced cucumber
Warm scones, jam, and cream are a must after the sandwiches. Homemade scones are divine or go shop-bought and warm them up in the oven before you serve.
For the cake, a Victoria Sponge cake is a great option. This gorgeous recipe is for the most delicious cake which is super simple to make.
What to drink at a Baby Shower Tea Party
Tea is a must but not let that stop you from being adventurous. After all, there are lots of different teas you can serve including:
- English Breakfast Tea (my personal favorite!)
- Earl Grey
- Rose Tea
- Mint Tea
- Chamomile Tea
- Lemon Tea
- Iced Tea
Baby Shower Games
What’s in the Basket?… For this easy DIY shower game, first, find a wicker basket with a lid or use a cloth to cover the top. Next, fill the basket with 8 to 10 baby goodies (think bottle, onesie, diaper cream, hairbrush) and then pass the basket around. Then guests should try to identify as many items inside as they can by touch only, (no looking) and write them down. When everyone has had a turn, compare lists to see who identified the most correctly. Bonus: When the game is done, the Mama to be leaves with all of the goodies.
How big is Mommy’s tummy?… Test your guests’ estimating skills with this fun guessing game. Using string, ribbon, or even toilet paper, have each shower guest guestimate the circumference of the expectant mom’s baby bump and cut a piece of the string (or ribbon or toilet paper) that will wrap around her belly. Then, whoever gets the closest wins.
