There is an old saying about little girls being made of sugar, spice, and everything nice. When people often think of little girls, the first image that may come to mind is a little girl surrounded by dolls having her own little tea party.
To help celebrate the upcoming birth of a beautiful baby girl, the mommy-to-be can give her little girl her very first tea party by having a tea party themed baby shower that will include pretty tea party decorations, food, and games.
There are so many great ideas that are so perfect for a tea party shower and it would be easy to plan because tea parties are popular enough that people generally know more or less what to do and what to get.
Tea Party Baby Shower Invitations
Starting with invitations, if you are thinking about making them yourself and you have great handwriting and some doilies, you can also use them as invitations with a tea party sticker to seal the envelope for a nice touch. You can add a further touch with a cute little pink or red ribbon
Tea Party Food and Drinks
If you are going to have a cake, then one shaped like a teapot would be very lovely. You could even put cupcakes in teacups for everyone instead. Of course will also serve tea, it is, after all, a tea party!
Get a few different kinds and you could perhaps let the mommy pick what tea everyone drinks. If you need to borrow teacups from a friend or multiple friends, it is okay if they don’t all match. It will just look eclectic. Make sure you have enough tea and teacups for everyone. Twice as many if you are doing the cupcakes in teacups!
A proper tea party has proper tea party food. Muffins are great, in an assortment is best. Also, little cucumber sandwich triangles or squares with all of the crust cut off.
Biscotti and scones are also perfect tea party foods to go along with a tea party theme. You can have an assortment of everything if your budget allows. If you have a 2 or 3 tier cupcake stand you could put the delicious food on it to make it look fancy. Add some teapot-shaped decorative cookies too.
Baby Is Brewing and Tea Party
If you’re like me, I love to sit back and relax as I sip on freshly brewed tea while I catch the afternoon sun. Why not hold a shower with all things we love!?
A Baby is Brewing can be incorporated with a Tea Party and it is so versatile, it could be a rustic burlap themed shower with a touch of lace and vintage pastel flowers or bring out the child in you and hold a fun fantasy filled tea party that is Alice in Wonderland. And that’s just the start, the list goes on and there’s no shortage of ideas and inspirations!
If it’s a coed baby shower, you can create a drinking station for the dad-to-be and his friends to hang out with the Baby is Brewing theme based on beers and nibbles.
Tea Party Baby Shower Decors
You can have it indoors or outdoors, depending on the time of year, weather, and of course the space you are using. If you have it on a nice patio or in a yard outside, a clothesline with baby clothes pinned up is adorable and mommy also gets to keep as gifts when they are done being decorated.
You could use doilies strung together to make the banner. They can be used for all kinds of decoration ideas. Explore using a variety of colors and shapes of doilies.
Another great idea for decoration is to have nice china teapots filled with flowers or a few of them around the room if you can. Having plenty of floral decorations would work perfectly for this theme. You could also cut out on a decorative paper shapes of teapots and use them as place-mats or confetti. If you have flowers, tie a nice ribbon on a vase with lovely ivory doily laces.
With the right set or sets of dishes and good baby shower planning, this can be the perfect little tea party with real saucers and little teacups, a doily under each of course, and with everyone eating their tea party food, it will feel like a perfect day. After which they will get their piece of cake or little tea cup cupcake as the perfect dessert.
Tea Party Baby Shower Games
If you want to play games, there are some fun baby shower games for this theme. You can have everyone put a paper plate on their head and try to draw a baby or a teapot. Then everyone else will have to guess at what each person was trying to draw, if you can tell at all!
Another game is to have everyone try to think of as many words as they can in a minute that start with T, or have TEA in that order in them.
You could also do words that rhyme with tea if you want. Or you could break everyone into teams and see who can make the highest sugar cube tower in 2 minutes. Here is another tea party game called Name that Tea. With this game, the hostess will have tea bags with no labels, and guests will have to sniff each one to guess what kind of tea it is.
Tea Party Baby Shower Favors
These cute personalized mini teacups by hollyslay make perfect keepsake favors! You can have the colors and design changed to suit the color theme of the party.
No matter what you do with this theme it is sure to be perfect, everyone loves a good, authentic tea party and how many opportunities do you really have to do something so cute in your life. Plus, every time the guest of honor plays tea party with her little girl it will bring her right back to the day that all of her friends came to her tea party baby shower to celebrate her being born.
