A tea party is a charming way to host a bridal shower or to honor one’s bridesmaids. In the English tradition of afternoon tea, it’s an occasion to enjoy light refreshments in the company of friends. Adopted by the British aristocracy in the early 1800s, the practice became a social event at which tea was poured from silver teapots into delicate bone china cups, and scones topped with cream and preserves, dainty sandwiches, biscuits, and pastries were served. Let our photos below provide you with some tips on planning that perfect themed tea party with modern choices!
