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.
For installment thirteen of Table Top Tuesday, we are inspired by these luminous film images from Odalys Mendez. It’s a magical table top setting in the woods filled with pretty little details thanks to Kristine Cholakian, Holly Carlisle and Simply Charming Socials.
What makes this work? The serene setting with sun peeping through the trees draws the eye in. Also, the light wood tables + chairs add a nice contrast to the greenery backdrop.
What details make a difference? Sweet chair adornments like above, black candles in assorted brass candle sticks and the flower arrangements are definitely the highlight. The use of berries and fruit add great texture to the tablescape.

I just had to share a few photos that photographer Fiona Melder captured at Purslane Catering‘s recent luncheon at 501 Union. We were so happy to see our mismatched floral plates, three tier china stands, salt + pepper shakers + clear pressed glass goblets adorning the grand wood table. Starling on Bond provided some lovely flowers + styling too. Beautiful set up everyone!

It’s no secret that the foundation of our company is our vintage china rentals. Maybe it’s the soft pastels or detailed floral patterns, but nothing quite compares. Floral china is a great addition to any celebration and provides a unique place setting for each of the individual guests. Simple but thoughtful. Here is some of our china looking beautiful!
There is nothing more special than a floral tea cup and mismatched saucer creating it’s own unique design for each guest at a vintage inspired bridal shower. Soft colors and feminine floral patterns are a perfect way to celebrate the bride-to-be. Renting vintage china in NYC for a bridal shower is a simple way to dress up any venue. Here is some of my favorite inspiration!
