Christmas Bridal Shower Tea Party Elements
Send your invitations out early with a Christmas-inspired tea party invitation (6). Since this is a contemporary affair, consider drafting a party plan with a hassle-free approach.
Prepare simple favorites like smoked salmon with cream cheese and dill, egg salad, and roasted turkey sandwiches. Cut them into shapely Christmas trees in keeping with the theme. If you don’t have time to prepare these sandwiches, many groceries carry holiday sandwich platters. Present these sandwiches on a lovely rose-topped tiered pastry stand (4) together with a variety of baked goodies from petit fours to mini cupcakes.
Assemble a warm beverage station with a selection of fine teas like peppermint, black, and chamomile. For a unique drink, consider spiced hot apple juice (1)—perfect for the holidays.
For the table centerpieces, think rustic vintage with chalk-painted mason jars (3) in festive Christmas colors. Incorporate budget-friendly florals like carnations and baby’s breath. Or just add tealights!
As a DIY gift for the guest of honor, make a pretty picture frame with the words “kiss me under the mistletoe” (5) that doubles up as party décor!
Keep guests entertained with ambient holiday music, bridal shower games like bingo (7), and Christmas crafting activities like knitting, hand painting, or cupcake decorating.
Make the perfect ending to this tea party with delicious holiday cookies (2) wrapped in joyful cello bags that are personalized with a meaningful message.
