With a vintage tea party baby shower, the invitation sets the tone for a charming, nostalgic gathering. Start by selecting an elegant design with a distinctly vintage twist. Soft pastel hues are a must – think blush pink, lavender, mint green, or a lovely cream. These delicate shades evoke a sense of warmth and nostalgia, ideal for a celebration of new life. To truly capture the vintage aesthetic, incorporate floral patterns into your design. Roses, peonies, and daisies are classic choices that never go out of style. And for an extra touch of old-world charm, consider including lace or doily motifs in your invitations.

But what about the wording? You can keep it sweet and classic with a simple statement like You’re invited to a delightful vintage tea party in honor of [Mom-to-be’s Name]. This lets your guests know the purpose of the gathering and sets the stage for a lovely afternoon. Of course, don’t forget to state all the important details – date, time, location, and RSVP information. If you want to make the process even easier, go for digital invitations. Sites like Etsy offer a plethora of customizable templates that mimic the look of traditional printed invitations but with the added convenience of being able to easily send and track them.


Vintage Tea Party Baby Shower Games

For a vintage tea party, you’ll want to choose activities that fit the theme while still being enjoyable for everyone. Start with a classic game that never fails to get people laughing: Guess the Baby Food. In this game, you collect a variety of baby foods, remove the labels, and have guests taste each one to guess the flavor. Serve baby food in vintage-style jars and watch your guests laugh as they guess the flavors. Next on the list, we have a tea-themed trivia game where you prepare a list of fun and interesting facts about tea, babies, or even the mom-to-be herself. Guests can see who knows the most about these topics, sparking conversations. Another fantastic option is Who Knows Mommy Best? – a questionnaire about the mommy-to-be’s preferences, habits, and baby-related plans. It's a great way to entertain and let her share her motherhood journey.

When it comes to the decor, think delicate, charming, and vintage. The tables should be the focal point, where your guests will gather to eat, play games, and shower the mom-to-be with love and gifts. To create a vintage tablescape, start with a white or pastel-colored tablecloth with lace accents. This will kick things off for the rest of the decorations. Next, place some layered doilies as placemats to bring in that extra vintage touch. These can be found at any thrift store or even made at home. Not only do they sprinkle a touch of nostalgia, but they also provide a pretty base for your tableware.

But what truly makes a vintage tea party come to life are the centerpieces. Small bouquets of fresh flowers in mismatched teapots, vintage teacups, or mason jars are perfect for adding a touch of whimsy and romance. Choose flowers in light hues, such as roses, peonies, and hydrangeasto tie in with the overall vintage theme. For extra detail, scatter some pearls or old-fashioned keys around the tables. Consider hanging a fabric banner with Baby Shower or Welcome Baby written in fancy script. If you can get your hands on some vintage frames, hang them up and fill them with baby-themed artwork or pictures of the mom-to-be. String lights or bunting flags made from floral fabrics can also bring a cozy, vintage vibe to the backdrop.

One of the first things you should consider when planning your vintage tea party is the tea itself. This is, after all, the star of the show. Offer a variety of options to cater to different tastes – black, green, herbal, and flavored teas like Earl Grey, chamomile, and lavender. Serve them in beautiful teapots and provide a selection of sugar, honey, and lemon slices for your guests to add as they please. To truly elevate the experience, you could even hire a tea sommelier to guide your guests through a tea tasting and educate them on the different varieties and brewing techniques. No tea party would be complete without finger sandwiches. Pick timeless flavors like cucumber and cream cheese, egg salad, and smoked salmon with dill. Cut them into dainty triangles or rounds for that authentic tea party feel.

And let's not forget about scones – a quintessential tea party treat. Serve them warm with clotted cream, butter, and an assortment of jams for the perfect balance of sweetness and richness. For those with a sweet tooth, be sure to include an array of pastries and desserts on your menu. Macarons, petit fours, cupcakes, and cookies adorned with vintage-inspired designs are all excellent choices. And of course, no tea party is complete without a beautifully decorated cake. Opt for a naked cake decked with fresh flowers for a simple yet stunning centerpiece. If you want to offer more substantial options, a quiche or a light salad can be great additions to your menu. And for those who may not be avid tea drinkers, set up a vintage punch bowl with a non-alcoholic, fruity punch or a refreshing classic lemonade.

You can put candies, chocolates, or even a small succulent for a unique twist.
