Tea Party-Inspired Wedding Ideas We Love

Tea drinkers everywhere rejoice! Dainty teacups, vintage teapots and luxurious loose leaf teas aren't just for afternoon tea — they're the perfect way to play up a rustic or vintage wedding. We love the idea of transforming antique china into vessels for your centerpieces or serving up desserts in teacups. For more of a Mad Tea Party vibe, choose cups, saucers and teapots in vibrant colors and funky flowers like anemones, protea or gerbera daisies. These fun tea-time touches are an easy and fun way to put a unique, playful spin on your reception decor.
