Here are 5 simple and chic additions to make your bridal shower tea party memorable. Notice the floral trend, but remember less is more! Be sure to compliment these items with solid color tablecloths and accents to maintain a more classic look.
Teacups: This is a must have! Whether you rent vintage china or gather pieces from family and friends , be sure to have delicate china teacups and saucers on hand; they will be the core design element of the party. (photo by Fiona Melder)
Floral Macarons: It seems no feminine party is complete without this delicacy but why not try this amazing DIY from Sugar & Cloth? Gather the bridal party for a day of fun and display your hard work at the party! (photo by Jared Smith)
Calligraphy Invitations: Nothing sets the tone for a party more than a calligraphy and watercolor invitation! This beauty by Fleur de Letters is a great example of one that can be reproduced into invitations. Be sure to keep the original artwork for the bride-to-be! (photo by Fiona Melder)
Loose Tea: Be sure to have a bevy of loose teas available for guests to customize flavors. It’s a great conversation starter and works as a beautiful ‘tea bar’ display. (photo by Fallon Chan)
Bulb Filled Vintage Napkin Favors: One of the sweetest mementos for Spring and Summer bridal showers ever; placing a single bulb in a vintage napkin or handkerchief for favors. Each guest will remember the party as they watch their flowers bloom! Such a sweet idea from Victoria Hudgins at A Subtle Revelry and easy to DIY.

In the sea of wedding decor and trends, I am drawn more to simple design for Spring 2014. This is most true when looking over this season’s offerings of wedding invitation suites. A small leaf or one simple flower complemented by a lovely font is a sweet, simple and romantic choice.
Minted offers some of my favorite designs of the season and their styling of the product is spot on. I had my personal wedding announcements printed through them and can attest to the superb quality. Here are a few of my favorites for the season.
I also found this lovely suite below available in letterpress, it’s the sweetest.
In the land of over the top celebrations, I gravitate toward a simple display for desserts. In my opinion, less is more. By ordering dozens of different petit fours you’re only creating chaos, not good design. Here are a few dessert displays that kept it low key and home grown.
Enjoy this post? Don’t forget to check out a dessert display Little Vintage Rentals created which was featured on 100 Layer Cake here.

We’ve been getting tons of requests for working typewriters at events! We are loving the trend of the happy couple taking home pages of typewritten love notes from guests. Would you opt for a typewriter guest book?
