I can hardly believe it but my wedding is less than 60 days from now! Wedding planning and my work schedule are leaving me little time for tea these days but one definitely bright spot was my bridal shower this past weekend. My bridal party knows me well so they put together a fun and festive tea party themed bridal shower. These are the same crew that was behind my bachelorette surprise, where they took me on a tea tour at Epcot. They’re the best bride tribe that a girl could as for! I thought it might be fun to share a quick post with some of the highlights as well as a few of the tea related gifts that I received.
Fresh brewed iced tea station. The girls brewed both offerings themselves, including a tasty green tea with fresh raspberries.
They also crafted a frame for a tea party themed DIY photobooth.
My future mother-in-law made lovely centerpieces that featured silk flower arrangements in teacups.
The adorable favores were tiny ceramic teacups with tea light candles inside of them.

My beautiful “cake”, made out of cupcakes with iridescent icing
The ubiquitous hat made out of bows from the presents.

My sister (aka the Maid of Honor) gave me a lovely teacup with my new last name and our wedding date on it in gold lettering.
She also gave me an adorable tea infuser shaped like a manatee.
Ever the trickster, my mom found a house coat with a teacup patterned fabric
Our friends and family were incredibly generous and it was wonderful to see everyone before the wedding. The big day will be here before I know it. I’ve been a bride-chilla for most of our engagement but have found myself hitting the panic button a bit lately. Some days it feels like there are so many things that still need be done (and paid for!). I won’t be able to post here on the blog or on social media as much as I might like to in the coming weeks. Things should be back to business as usual after our honeymoon in November. Until then, drink an extra cup of tea for me!
