Tea Party Bridal Shower

Are you planning a bridal shower but want to make it a bit different than the usual shower? Consider incorporating an afternoon tea theme into your plans. The event doesn't need to be a serious high tea with straight faces all around. Make it fun for the bride and the guests by going all out and helping everyone to get involved.
If you want your guests to arrive prepared, make sure their invitation states that they are invited for an afternoon tea party. Hint that they bring items to help lighten the mood, such as fancy gloves, hankies or hats that they can use all through the shower. Getting the guests involved before the shower means fewer surprises during the shower and gives them a heads up as to what they can expect. There will often be some guests who won't feel comfortable participating, so don't let them get you down.
It's also a thoughtful idea to have some extra costume pieces for guests who don't have anything at home that they can bring.
