As my wedding day was fast approaching and the topic of my bridal shower came up, I made a subtle suggestion to have a tea party theme.  I had no idea how it would turn out!  My family and bridesmaids spent hours hand crafting the favors and the decorative pom poms, not to mention a ton of other amazing details.  I loved the shabby chic look from all the floral tablecloths and antique tea sets to the lace doilies at each place setting.  Almost all 24 tea cups and saucers came from many different china sets that my family members had gotten as wedding gifts in the past.  It was great to have so many people play a part in all the decorations and details of the day.  Everyone seemed to have a blast playing the games and getting to know each other.  To me, the most important part of the day was getting to see all of the amazing ladies that were there.  So many guests traveled from out of town to come and share in the celebrations of the weekend, including my big sister in sorority who flew in all the way from Florida.  I felt so blessed to be able to share tea and scones with so many amazing people, and I honestly couldn’t have imagined anything better!  I can’t believe its 13 days until the wedding!!
