Conceptualized, styled, and designed by Shelby of The Day’s Design and photographed beautifully by Bradley James Photography, this vintage tea party styled shoot is overflowing with delightfully feminine details and ideas that are perfect for a bridal shower or bachelorette party!
From Shelby of The Day’s Design – “It started with a love of teacups. One might even say I’m a little obsessed. They just make a place setting complete, inviting one to stay just a touch longer and have another sweet treat. And then I had the good fortune to tour the Felt Mansion and fell head over heels in love with the perfectly pastel floral wallpaper and a vision began to take form. More of a fantasy really, I was dreaming about having a pretty party with scones and honey right there in that very room. This room was created to host a perfectly vintage and girlie event!
The girls were greeted with a jewelry bar and after they had adorned themselves with baubles, beads, and bows they were invited to sit for a spot of tea (and a sip of champagne!). It became an indoor garden party but when they did venture out into the chilly November air faux fur shrugs were definitely in order.
The bride wore an authentic vintage tulle gown found on Etsy paired with a lace bolero and vintage gloves. The mismatched bridesmaids’ dresses were reminiscent of what any lady might find herself wearing to an afternoon tea. These pretty pictures, captured oh-so perfectly by Bradley James Photography, were created to provide inspiration for weddings, showers or simply a Sunday brunch!”
