Decor & Style Inspiration event planning Hand-made Tea Paty

A lawn bridal shower tea!

Also featured on Glamour & Grace Hierloom Weddings

Vintage by design and pretty by chance? Nah! If it is vintage by design it’s going to be cute by default. Read on to get a beautiful inspiration for a lovely and laid-back lawn tea party for a bridal shower. Although this part 2 of the shoot is specifically designed around bridal shower, the theme and décor can be used for many different occasions. See part 1 of the shoot here for a woodsy rustic sweetheart table inspiration.

With many of my special curated pieces both of china and linen, from a certain era (circa 1920s) featured in this shoot, the look is very quintessentially vintage. The added elements like a twist to tea by Teaspressa and leisure activity of brush painting by Pink Puddle Studio, the vibe is completely that of time standing still; {even though you are having fun} sipping tea with cakes and cookies is bound to slow down the time. The great outdoors with lush lawn create the very complementary ambiance. These pictures make me so proud and happy of the pretty teacups I own and share with others!

About Author

Hi and welcome to my blog!

My name is Riffat and I am the writer behind this blog. Through this blog I share many things I am enthusiastic about – my curated items from old era, passion for tea and tea parties, design and décor, DIY projects. I specifically like to create themed and seasonal parties incorporating vintage treasures. I am married to an awesome guy who has {a good case of} wanderlust and is a grand but healthy foodie. Occasionally I will be journaling and sharing his experiences in travel, recipes and restaurant reviews. On my blog you will also get to meet our 3 amazing boys – the oldest is neuro-diverse and his being on the spectrum has given a different and incredible meaning to our family! I would be a very different person without him. Besides enjoying my family and this blog, I am a full-time speech and language pathologist.

We recently moved to Dallas from Arizona. Back there, I ran a vintage china rental and sales business. I had the pleasure of working with some amazing vendors in the event industry and got featured on many international and national blogs. I started blogging specific to my collection but recently switched to life style blogging to touch more aspects of life.

Originally from Pakistan, I am a multicultural and multilingual person and enjoy diversity to its fullest. I welcome new things and ways and learn from them but believe in restoring and preserving as well. I love people who inspire each other, are successful holistically, spread positive vibes and make a difference in this world for themselves and individuals around them. Overall, I strive to be a very well-balanced person and this blog plays some part in achieving that!

I absolutely love to team up with creative minds! Feel free to contact me for style consultation, photo shoots, vintage & antique articles, tea parties and hand-made items. I also do product reviews and feature items on my blog. I have a small shop on etsy featuring my collection and hand-made items.

    I love vintage china, especially tea cups!! I always try to collect matched pieces but this beautiful mix has its own quaint and charming look! Looking forward to more of your tea adventures!!

    1. Kate, I was so hung up on making only matching sets but once I started styling up, the eclectic look was so much more appealing that I actually pack the sets separately to keep the charm!! Thanks so much for the kind words!
