Baby Shower Afternoon Tea Venue North London
Your bestie has just announced an impending delivery. You’ve done the Hen, it’s time for the next BIG event!! The Baby Shower!
So, what do you know?! Baby Shower Tea Parties are all the rage. And thankfully, it’s something we at Tea Party do quite a bit. We love them! How girlie can you be? Quite frankly, it’s another excuse to get the girls together for some sweet treats, play some baby games and celebrate a soon to be born bundle of joy. But at the same time, be all about the mum to be.
I mean, when else can you pick a pastel theme and make an event look pretty…ok, apart from perhaps the wedding?!
We make the tea party look so very beautiful with all the gorgeous flowers, vintage tableware, baby shower cupcakes, delicate sandwiches, scrummy scones. Just you guys and the mum to be!! And that’s when the baby games come out…the dirty nappy, quizzes, guess the name of the celebrity baby, don’t mention the word ‘baby’ game..you name it, we’ve seen it! ALL. Once we even had a naked butler. Talk about worrying! Thought we might have an early labour on our hands due to shock!!
Basically, you tell us the date and number of guests. Then you turn up. We do the rest. (well, apart from the games!).
How easy is that? x
1. Scrummy Delights
First & foremost, who doesn’t love delectable scrummy treats? Cute finger sandwiches, scones with lashings of clotted cream & jam..not to mention all manner of fabulous cakes & patisserie. It’s just the perfect excuse.
2. Fun with friends AND your mother-in-law to be
Yep, whatever you have planned for your Hen Event, this is the perfect way to include everyone, young & old. Brilliant for your grandma. It can be civilised (well, see #4), gossiping with with not only your close friends & family..but the ‘other side too’!
3. It looks Stunning
If you get it right, a tea party can look amazing, all laid out beautifully with gorgeous place settings, flowers, china, cake stands all piled with mountains of delicious food. You’ll want to share it with your besties!
4. You can add entertainment
Not just any afternoon tea here! The Hen Party Tea Party can include ‘extra entertainment’ – a naked butler neatly attired in just a pinny can make all the difference. Who wouldn’t fancy having a hunky chap pour your tea?! Not your thing? Add a craft, manicure, even a karaoke sing-along.
5. It can be private
If you have a tea party in a venue or a private area just to yourselves, there’ll be no prying eyes. So, if you want to play some hilarious games without a stranger intruding – you can! You can be as loud as you like, dress up in loo roll, ask a quiz with all manner of embarrassing personal questions that your maid of honour has made up, add a craft, make a mess and have a naked butler. Did I mention that one already?
6. You can wear heels
Yes! You’ll be mostly sitting down elegantly enjoying your tea party. Arrive in style, looking absolutely fabulous. You know you can wear those drop dead gorgeous shoes because you won’t have to stand on your feet.
7. It doesn’t have to be debauched & boozy (if you don’t want it to)
If you are not the kinda gal who doesn’t fancy getting legless, then a tea party is an excellent idea…but if you are somewhere in-between, a few sophisticated bubble won’t go amiss with your dainty cucumber sandwiches!
