Are tea party ideas good baby shower themes? For whimsical, try a Winnie the Pooh theme
The tea party ideas for hosting a baby shower can be endless. I love the whimsical theme of a Winnie the Pooh Baby Shower tea party because there are so many variations on the theme. The hostess can be as whimsical and goofy on the subject as she wants to be for her guest of honor, the future mom. The most wonderful part of hosting a tea party is that it can fit into any budget. From decorations to food, you can make this as simple or as unusual as you like.
Do you agree that a tea party, by nature, makes you feel special and transformed? Eating small sandwiches, tasty sweet bites, and drinking from delicate cups of tea makes even a casual gathering feel elegant.
The most important part of any party is planning. So let’s get started. It is very important to discuss with the future couple if they would like a baby shower before or after the baby is born. Some couples prefer to wait and you should respect that.
This is a momentous occasion for the expectant mother, so you want to build anticipation with your invitations. I prefer to make my own homemade handwritten invitations. I always make an extra one for mom too, so she can save it for baby’s scrapbook.
Today, baby showers can include spouses, loved ones, and children as well, rather than the more traditional female-only baby showers. Also indicate who is invited on your invitation. I like to send out invitations three to four weeks before the event, to give guests plenty of notice so they can make plans to attend.
Now is the time to plan the decorations. The theme, Winnie the Pooh, is in keeping with the occasion of the celebration and will be very festive. Your inventiveness and careful attention to detail will make the party great. Depending on the time of year, your color options can be bold for fall and winter and softer for spring and summer. Remember that flowers are always a nice touch at any time of the year. You may want to consider putting them in honey jars to match your theme.
The next part of baby shower planning is the menu. The best part about hosting a tea party is that you can make wonderful and tasty treats ahead of time and keep your last minute preparations to a minimum. That is an important ingredient for any good hostess to have a successful party. I serve bite-sized savory and sweet scones in my afternoon teas. My guests enjoy being able to try a variety of different flavors. Serve fruit preserves and jams, as well as herb-infused butters and cheese spread to accompany the scones.
Serving a variety of loose leaf teas is always a hit, be sure to have a decaf tea for the expectant mom or offer rooibos herbal teas as well as.
You may want to serve your teas in Winnie the Pooh and Friends mugs or bowls. Serve it hot or even ice cream. A tray of side dishes like sugar cubes, lemon and orange slices, honey, and cream are fun things to add to tea. Definitely don’t forget about the honey.
