A Tea Party Bridal Shower for Julia!

My best friend Julia is getting married a week from today!!  You all probably remember Julia from her Nantucket Girl feature.  In honor of her upcoming nuptials, Patty, Caroline & I hosted a bridal shower for her.  We decided on a tea party theme!

SIDE NOTE: I have something to admit.  I have grandma tendencies.  I mean I know it is obvious that I love my grandmas.  But I also love grandma decor.  I started collecting vintage tea cups when I was 16.  Yep.  And I own a lot of hobnail.  Steve loves it.


Vintage teacups, cake stands, paper fans, doilies, pretty posies, mason jars tied with lace, paper straws and banners.

The Peach Tea Cocktail, finger sandwiches, fruit salad, guacamole, spinach & artichoke dip and hummus platter, pastys, scones with cream & chocolate chip cookies! (Stay tuned for the Peach Tea Cocktail recipe!  I’ll be posting about it later this week!)

We wanted to spice up opening presents so we had a an idea that involved the groom to be!  Before the shower, we sent off a questionnaire to Julia’s fiancé Steve.  We asked him questions like: What is Julia’s favorite flower? What did Julia wear on their first date?  What movie star does Julia remind you of? etc.  In between opening each presents we asked Julia the same questions to see if their answers matched!  It’s kind of  like the Newlywed Game.  Julia did really well!  I think they are meant to be!
