Karin's Floral + High Tea Themed Bridal Shower
WHEN WE HEARING THE WORDS FLORAL + HIGH TEA THEMED BRIDAL SHOWER WE WERE INTRIGUED...
But hearing and seeing are two completely different things when it came to Karin's bridal shower this past spring! Walking into this event space was completely other wordly decorated with vintage tea cups and sauces (different ones at each table!), balloons, a cut out flower wall, and hanging umbrellas and guess what- it was all designed by the bride-to-be and her sister, no less!
FROM THE BRIDE TO BE:
I have always loved high tea for its beautiful china and bite-sized sandwiches and scones. I wanted an elegant bridal shower with a theme that allowed me to transform my venue into a beautiful garden. I discussed my vision with Tsoleen, my maid of honor who also happens to be my sister and co-owner of TSO: Tastefully Selected Objects. Once we had a general idea of the props and pieces we wanted to include, TSO started to prototype different floral pieces and color schemes. I especially love suspended centerpieces. There is something whimsical and magical about free hanging pieces that really transforms a venue. Staying true to our garden tea party theme, we decided to add suspended umbrellas and lanterns adorned with flowers and butterflies to further enhance our “garden.” Since we were renting mismatched vintage china from Elena, owner of Cups and Saucers, we decided to sew mismatched table runners to tie all the decorative elements together. The end result was a beautiful garden composed of handmade pieces specially designed for my bridal shower.
