Tea Party Bridal Shower

My best friend is throwing a Bridal Shower for her future sister-in-law. Since Erica's family is from Scotland, they wanted the shower to be a traditional English Tea Party. (The wedding is full of Scottish features!)She called me MONTHS ago to ask me to make the invites which I of course said, "YES!" Then it took me a while to find the stamp that I wanted. Then comes the hard part... trying to design something easy enough to make because she needed 27 invitations but still making it look cute! I decided that I would make her three examples. They looked like this:

I had opinions about all three... I liked this, didn't like that... but they chose #1... I didn't really care for the top part of #1 (I thought it looked like a birthday party!)... so I changed it and ended up with this as the final product. I really hope that they liked them. They arrived at Erica's house today!

I love when things rhyme... I think that's the teacher in me. So for the inside I made it say, "Come enjoy a cup of tea, as we shower with gifts, the Bride-to-Be." And of course all of the details for the party. I also can't stand a plain white envelope anymore, so I stamped and cut the teapots in the plaid print for the envie. Much better and fun!

Thanks, Shad, for letting me make them for you!
