Why go traditional when you can totally take a traditional concept and make it super modern! A few of us recently threw a Modern Tea Party Baby Shower focusing on bold colors and inspiring crafts for the mother-to-be. We wanted to stay away from the traditional games and the awkward present opening time where everyone stares at the guest of honor while she unwraps her gifts.
Pumpkin Orange and Raspberry Pink are an amazing color combination. The loud orange color brightens up the room and the raspberry pink gives it a feminine feel with bold energy. Rather than having everyone sit down at a formal tea table, we set up bar tables where guests were able to mingle and chat with everyone at the party. This avoids each person only being able to talk to their neighbors and the person across from them. For the China we went simple white with an elegant silver lining. The basic white china balanced out all the bold colors on the table. We gave the tables a tea party feel with a small bouquet of hydrangeas on each table.
