1920s High Tea Party by Lily Chic Events

Lilian Oliver of Lily Chic Events took a trip back in time with this lovely 1920s
inspired baby shower for expecting mom Britta. The theme idea came from Britta
herself, who requested a “1920s style high tea with hints of poppies and Agatha
Christie novels”. The starting point for the design came from a custom printable
package from Jennifer Birkhead Design. Lilian brought the interesting concept to
life with thoughtful decor in a bold red, black, and white color palette.

At each place setting, guests found a lovely cupcake inside a china teacup for them
to take home. Kraft paper from Ikea and the pages of old books were fashioned into
paper flowers and glued onto a canvas to create an eye-catching backdrop behind the
well-stocked dessert table. The spread included many of Britta’s favorites,
including sour cherry nougat, vanilla Turkish Delight, Oreo cake pops, passion fruit
cheesecakes, caramel sugar swizzle sticks, salted caramel and raspberry cream
macarons, cookies, and a cherry ripe mud cake. For a little more vintage flair,
guests typed little keepsake notes to the baby on an old typewriter. Even the
bartender got into the spirit for the event and dressed for the 1920s theme!Lee Bird
