Hello! My mom is remarrying this June and my sister and I are in charge of the bridal shower. It's not going to be a typical bridal shower with gifts, but it will be a surprise for her.

We were thinking of a vintage tea party (1880-1900), but when I was googling vintage parties 1920's and 50's were coming up. Does anyone have any decorating ideas or things to do? We want to try and stay away from the traditional games, they don't really apply anymore (what to name your first child, recipies to get you started, etc.) so we are a little stuck.

Any help or comments are greatly appreciated!

You could have each guest bring a plate of their favorite cookie, cake, or whatever & a copy of the recipe for them to give to the newlyweds. (And it helps on food costs)
You could do the same with teas, have each person bring teas they enjoy & everyone can try something new if they want.

You could have proper "enlish tea" with scones and jam with clotted cream. And salmon sanwiches with no crust, and tea of course.

You could always to the "Mad Hatter Tea Party" but not in the children Alice in Wonderland set up...

You could do it in the style of My Fair Lady (think the scene at the races), and have everybody come wearing huge ridiculous hats.  Cheesy  You could give a prize for the craziest hat. 

For decor:  I'm sure if you went to a thrift store, you could find lots of funky teacups on the cheap, and you could put them on the table with flowers or candles in them or something. 

It might be fun to play some sort of game around tea party etiquette, though the only ettiquette-related thing I can think of right now is that holding your pinky out when you sip thing (and I don't even know if that's *real* ettiquette).  I'm not really sure what kind of game you could build around pinkies.  hehe

My bridal shower is in May and it is also a tea party theme.  For the centerpieces, my sister found a bunch of tea pots at thrift stores and around and is filling them with flowers.  I believe they are being given away as a game prize.
