These sugar-licious and sip worthy bridal shower tea party ideas are al fresco style chic for a charming celebration. By choosing a theme it sets the tone for your celebrations and will help you determine the venue, decorations, and menus you'll be needing for the day. With such a fabulous excuse as the Royal Wedding, there was no bigger reason to design with industry friends as these sip worthy bridal shower tea party ideas giving a nod to the big day. The beauty of the shoot comes from the mere fact that it was created on the same day as Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding. With some insider knowledge, together they created small tokens to the couple such as the choice of florals which are very English and romantic. Instead of a heavy or contrived feel, the floral combination comes off light and fresh with a touch of whimsical. Let's touch on the nosh at the party. Marie-Antoinette's favorite little morsel is the macaroon, obviously a must have for an authentic bridal shower tea party. Inspired by the color theme of the royal wedding, some were filled with a delicious Bourbon vanilla ganache and others with luscious amounts of vanilla crème patissière, pistachio and raspberry. A traditional "tarte au citron," was served as a nod to Meghan and Harry, followed by raspberry, strawberry and blueberry tarts filled with a vanilla crème patissière, petits choux with golden caramel and mini éclairs complemented the delicious display. Even the very sparkling wine is one that was served to their guests at their reception.
