A tea party is a wonderful way to celebrate the coming of an expecting child. This is one I consider a good choice for not only when she is expecting a girl, but for a unisex theme.

Baby Shower Tea Party Decorations
Have a nice setting with tea party baby shower plates and napkins. Add some vases with fresh flowers or tea pots. Buy china tea cup sets (find cheap ones at second hand stores /goodwill).
Bake some cute cupcakes, or buy them at your local bakery. Get some pretty doily type cupcake wrappers. Cute stands completes the dessert table. Don’t forget the matching tablecloth! I used once the below bird cage stand to display small favors. It was a hit!
If you do not have doillies, you don’t have a tea party. This I think are a must and add some much to the theme. Add them on the tables, wrap the silverware with them, make some crafts / decorations with them….possibilities are endless.
Decorate more with these cute food picks with lovely sayings; Eat me, Yummy, Absolutely Scrumptious, Take One, Delectable, Do Try One. All in themed colored with flowers.
