A Garden Party Bridal Shower

Ah, Spring time in Texas. That special time when it goes from 30 to 80 degrees in a 48 hour period, everyone is sick and the pollen count is at an all time high. But aside from these selling points – Spring is, in all seriousness, a gorgeous time of year and one of my favorites (nothing can beat Fall).

This year in particular we have benefitted from a mild winter (sorry to rub it in New Englanders) and tons of Spring showers which of course brought out some gorgeous April flowers. So, when my best friend’s mom asked me, as the Matron of Honor, to help throw a strawberry garden party bridal shower I was stoked. And the day could not have been more perfect!

The tablescapes

We started with taking inventory of all the china, silver and tea cups we both had and then threw in some birdcages, raided Trader Joe’s flower bins (no seriously…we demolished their flower bins) and then added in some fun little accessories.

It’s a tradition in the bride’s family that whenever someone has a birthday or special occasion, their place setting is set with a flower wreath. We loved adding this special touch with the tea-cup flowers (and I may steal this tradition for my kiddos). You’ll see this detail in the last two pictures below.

The Gifts

The gift bags included fresh tea leaves, tea infuser, honey sticks, butter cookies and strawberry jam (yum!). I then made these little tags to fold over the top that included the recipe for some of my favorite treats – Mini Almond & Strawberry Muffins (view the full recipe & video tutorial here!) and topped off with a ribbon and sprig of white flowers.
