Hello! You’ll be glad to know I survived the big bachelorette weekend. It’s been hard to tear myself out of bed the past couple mornings, but I’m back to business as usual. Tomorrow, I’ll be sharing some party details — including my outfit and the decorations I made! But for today, I’m keeping tradition with a Trinket Tuesday: 

A couple years ago, I threw a bridal shower tea party. I used an eclectic mix of my mom’s china and glassware to create a beautiful table setting. I served cucumber sandwiches, petit fours, scones, and other dainty finger foods. I also used antique tea sets for serving the tea.

While I was able to borrow several of the tea sets, my mom and I bought one set that was too pretty to pass by. We found this blue and white china tea set at an antique mall in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. The pretty blue and white design shows a windmill scene.

The set contains a teapot, a creamer, and a sugar bowl. The tea party bridal shower was a success! Everyone felt so ladylike and fancy sipping tea out of teacups and eating petit fours off of pretty depression glass plates.

The only bad part of the day? Hand washing all the dishes afterward!
