A lovely way to celebrate an upcoming wedding is a Bridal Shower Tea Party with your favorite women!

Today we’re sharing an exquisite butterfly garden themed tea party with you to inspire your most whimsical celebration dreams! Join us as we explore this lavish party setup, full of luxurious flowers, delectable desserts, a stunning cake and the most incredible flower wall you’ve ever seen!
Butterfly Garden Decoration Ideas
There’s nothing quite like attending a party where you feel like you’ve been transported into another world! Victoria Thanoukos of Kensington Florals & Events transformed the Terrace Room at Evanston Golf Club into an enchanting butterfly garden with an ornate and extravagant flower wall, floral hoop and dainty feminine touches felt throughout the room! Wander with me through this lovely English garden motif…
Talk about a stunning entryway! Guests were greeted by Glamour In Bloom’s opulent faux floral hoop, wrapped in large pink, white and purple blooms from floor to ceiling! The lanterns at the floor and the large butterflies on the side added to the ambience for the afternoon of celebration.
Immediately after stepping into the secret garden, guests’ eyes were drawn to another stunning flower wall from Glamour In Bloom located behind the elegant dining table. White, cream and purple flowers created a beautiful backdrop as guests enjoyed tea, conversation, and later, pictures together.
The mood for the party was set with these divine invitations, designed by Flyy Design Creative. With pops of pink, white, purple and green, the floral butterfly garden theme came together beautifully from the ground up.
This fairy-tale table was set with a soft pink linen tablecloth, topped with vintage china and tea cups for guests to enjoy! I just love the detailed patterns Dish and Decor Vintage Rental provided – mixing and matching china patterns is a great way to create a whimsical feel! Look closely and you’ll notice another fabulous detail… the pink linen napkins were wrapped into the shape of a rose! Perfect!
The center of the table was decorated with thoughtful touches like miniature stone fairies, beautiful ranunculus, tulips and Monte casino flowers popping out of lantern crevasses and an antique dress form covered in butterflies and pearls! Kensington Florals & Events did a fabulous job with the centerpieces, don’t you think?

Tea Party Food and Dessert Ideas
Delectable tea sandwiches, scrumptious desserts and a stunning 3-tier cake satisfied guests’ hunger and sweet tooth during the party! The sandwiches and assortment of bite sized desserts and the hand-painted cake, topped with vibrant flowers and butterflies were designed by The Quintessential Cake.
All of the desserts were served in a gorgeously handcrafted wooden dessert cart from Sweet Carts Rental & Decor. A special serving station at your event is a fun way to create a unique moment guests will remember and enjoy!
Other decorative paper goods, like the butterfly cake toppers, playful straws and delicate place cards were compliments of Devilish Designz. These themed details really added to the ambiance of the day!
Bridal Shower Favor Ideas
Guests found small favors to take home at their place setting, with a Thank You tag designed by Devilish Designz. They enjoyed chocolates as well as handmade soaps and scrubs from Nude Acacia Beauty Bar.
Whether you’re throwing a bridal shower, baby shower, Galentine’s Day party or a birthday party, high tea is an elegant affair worthy of a big celebration!
