The bridal shower is a highly anticipated event leading up to the wedding day. It is the one affair that is a reflection of the bride-to-be and the one event that she doesn't share the spotlight with her groom. It is the day that all her female friends, relatives and co-workers get to act girly, chic and elegant. A trend in bridal showers is throwing a tea party - or serving "high tea".
Ever since we were young girls - we have been hosting "tea parties" - do you remember sitting your stuffed animals around the table as you served them pretend tea in a play set? If so, then this is the perfect grown up version to celebrate her upcoming nuptials. Tea parties can be simple and elegant - perfect for keeping costs down as well.
