I stumbled across these perfect little tea cup candles the other day and just knew that I had to show them to you! Thanks to the talented Georgica Pond for letting me share the tutorial on how to make them!

  • What a great way to get rid of old candles that are lying around.
  • You can buy wicks online or at any craft store. 
  • Tie the wick to a wooden skewer or dowel as shown in the picture. 
  • Then melt the candles down and pour into tea cups (which you can find at garage sales, antique stores, online or at home goods stores.) 
  • Let the candles cool completely until set.

Imagine what a stunning impression these tea cup candles will make at your baby shower! You can line them up along a mantle, place them on the food table, or bundle them up and pass out as baby shower favors (be sure to include a favor tag saying "A baby is brewing!")

Baby Shower Tea Party Menu Ideas

Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

1/2 seedless cucumber, peeled and very thinly sliced (about 32 slices)
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup coarsely chopped watercress leaves
16 slices white bread
alfalfa sprouts

Pat cucumber slices with paper towels to remove moisture.

In a small bowl, combine butter and watercress; spread on one side of each slice of bread.
Lay cucumber slices onto the buttered side of 8 slices of bread.
Cover each with alfalfa sprouts and top with the remaining slices of bread, buttered side down. Carefully cut the crusts from each sandwich with a sharp knife.
Cut the sandwiches with cute "baby themed" cookie cutters such as bottles, ducks, booties, etc.

Chicken Curry Tea Sandwiches

2 cooked whole chicken breasts, finely chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped nuts
4 celery stalks, finely chopped
Mayonnaise (to make moist)
Curry powder
16 slices white bread
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

In a large bowl, combine chicken, nuts, celery, and mayonnaise; stir until well blended. Add a touch of curry powder - a little dab'll do ya!

Spread one side of each piece of bread lightly with butter. Top the buttered side of 8 slices of bread with some of the chicken mixture and top with the remaining bread slices, buttered side down.

Carefully cut the crusts from each sandwich with a sharp knife. Cut the sandwiches in half diagonally and then cut in half again. Or, cut the sandwiches with cute "baby themed" cookie cutters such as bottles, ducks, booties, etc.

Guess what else you will need at your baby shower tea party?
Yep, tea!

Sipping tea is becoming a trendy "hobby" and it is slowly catching up to the coffee craze. It really makes you feel special when you get to drink your tea from a beautiful tea cup that was poured from a fancy teapot.

Cute and Festive Ideas

Have several pots of tea steeping in several different flavors and varieties. Make cute labels and set next to each teapot for guests to choose from. Some common favorites are: chamomile, jasmine, earl grey, green, black, even iced!

Yummy garnishes that guests can add to their tea are always fun! Have a tray full of honey, cream, sugar, cinnamon, etc.

Scones are a traditional tea party pastry, light and delicious!

Basic Scone Recipe

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
6 tablespoons cold butter
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon sugar

Preheat the oven to 400º F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and soda. Using your fingers mix in butter, work with it until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk buttermilk and egg together, and add to flour mixture. Stir together until a soft ball of dough forms. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently, turning five or six times. Roll out dough with a floured rolling pin to about 1/2 inch thickness. Cut scones into triangle wedges and place on the baking sheet. Brush the tops lightly with butter and sprinkle with sugar. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until light brown. Serve with preserves. Makes about 12 scones.
