We selected a “Tea Party” theme for the bridal shower of my nephew’s “bride to be” and my sister quickly sent me her ideas for the big day.
We planned brunch, and of course, needed a special centerpiece for the food table.
It had to compliment the theme. Therefore we incorporated “tea cups” and a “tea-pot”.
Tea Party Centerpiece
First of all we created the tower or “base” our centerpiece. To do this used ceramic plates with a beautiful floral pattern found at a thrift store and candlesticks from the dollar store.
To create the tower we began by gluing two of the candlesticks together to as a result creating a taller piece.
We glued the candlestick we created to a large plate with clear epoxy glue. After the glue dried, we attached another plate to the top of the tall candlestick. Followed by an additional smaller candlestick glued to the top of the second plate. On top of this candlestick we glued the smallest plate finally completing our tower.
While we worked a level was used to make sure the plates remained balanced. The plates were left overnight to dry.
Now the fun begins!
A bit of floral foam is added to a variety of cups and saucers we found at the thrift store. An assortment of colorful summer flowers are then inserted into the foam creating small individual arrangements.
All of the cup and saucers are added to the “tower”. In addition, clusters of faux hydrangeas, fresh flowers and babies breath are tucked in among the tea cups.
Finally. we place a perfect little teapot, found at the thrift store, on top of the tower. Adding a small piece of floral foam tucked under the back edge of the teapot gives it the look of pouring, . But most of all, Grandma’s beaded necklace gives it a special touch!
Tea Party Centerpiece makes the perfect focal point to our buffet table.
