When it’s time to have a baby shower, a tea party makes a delightful way to celebrate the coming of a new life. Picking a theme is your first step. Baby themes abound. Think baby animals, like ducks, chickens, zoo animals, puppies and kittens.
A single color scheme can also work for a baby shower tea party. If you know the baby is a boy, blue is the perfect choice. And, of course, pink for a baby girl. But, if you don’t yet know the sex of the baby, colors like yellow and green work well. Also think about blending blue and pink.
Flower buds also make a charming theme for a baby shower. A flower just about to be “born” in all it’s glory. Insects, like butterflies, ladybugs and bumble bees make great themes for baby showers, too. If you are dealing with a holiday time, you can create a theme around that. For instance, at Halloween time, you can use a cute bat or black kitten as the theme.

The centerpiece for your baby shower tea party is quite easy to create. Purchase an appropriate tea pot, which will be given to the mother-to-be at the end of the shower. Then set the tea pot on a cloth napkin in the color scheme of the shower. Add some accents, like little cut-outs of the baby animals you have chosen in the theme, or add small flowers with ribbons interlaced around them. Presto! You have a charming centerpiece.
Baby shower tea cups can be an eclectic mix of many different types. Take a look at the options available at our Tea Cups pages. These can be used as favors for all the guests. After they have chosen the tea cup that they like, and have used it for the tea party, you just wash them and wrap in tissue paper for them to take home.
Food options are plentiful. Visit our page about what foods to serve at a tea party. You’ll find plenty of ideas. Next up, we have a recipe for a delicious biscuit called: Queen’s Cheese Biscuit. Keep an eye on this site for that. Better yet, sign up to get our updates and receive it in your email!
