Last weekend was my cousins bridal shower. Me (maid of honor - whoop whoop) and the matron of honor decided to throw her a traditional afternoon tea style shower complete with a gorgeous silver antique water dispenser, mini finger sandwiches, mini cupcakes, (and mini everything for that matter - everything is cuter in mini version!), adorable petit-fours, dozens of kinds of tea to choose from, and floral lollipop favors that were tied up with a personalized ribbon placed in a vase as if they were a real flower arrangement (such a fun idea from my aunt!). My grandmother has this AMAZING vintage tea cup/saucer collection which were absolutely perfect for the event. She even let each of her granddaughters (there are a lot of us) take home a cup to keep which I thought was such a sweet sentiment. Those of you who know me well know my heart is in party planning, it was so nice to be able to get back into something I love! I wish my little city size place were big enough to host gatherings like this one more often. I think she had such a great time! I love the photo below as it shows how shes totally overwhelmed with all the love/prezzies in the room!
