This bridal shower idea takes the theme of tea one step further than most.
Each guest is asked to bring an antique cup-and-saucer set as a gift; the result is a tabletop no bride could ever plan.
Invitations could be tea bags with handwritten, accordion-pleated messages enclosed in pink envelopes.Japanese green-tea leaves nestled in small wooden boxes can make appropriate party favors.
Then wrapped in pale-pink vellum paper and ribbon.
Completing the very pink theme, garlands of delphiniums could be strung by hand on green embroidery thread, and hung across mirrors, doorways and window frames.
