A few weeks ago I hosted a vintage glamour bridal shower for my dear friend Charmaine. Bridal shower parties are not as popular as hen nights in Singapore. Singaporeans tend to have a tendency to enjoy making your friends look silly; like wearing a tiara, and asking strangers for autographs and getting really drunk in clubs, than showering them with gifts and bonding over good food and drinks in a cozy setting.

My fabulous girlfriend Charmaine is one girl that prefers a warm and cozy setting. I was very privileged and excited to host my first bridal shower tea party. The thought of having an estrogen filled house of dainty teacups, delicious cupcakes and macarons is all too exciting.

That aside, the most important aspect of bridal showers is the celebration of a new chapter of a bride-to-be. The gathering of her best buddies makes up a big part of her life and offers us a retrospective view of her growing up years as a single. Such is the beauty of bridal showers, the laughter and female bonding amidst the food and wine, is what sisterhood is all about. All of us enjoyed ourselves tremendously and it was touching to recount our times with Charmaine.

What was your experience as a bridal shower host? Do you prefer having a hen’s night or bridal shower? Or would you like both as a bride-to-be?

Hand made poms poms set a cheerful backdrop for photos and adds a quirky feel to the party. This was the dessert table. The cupcakes were displayed on collapsible cardboard cupcake trays which are incredibly beautiful. Vintage books as decor added to the theme of the party.

The table settings was full of lace and doillies, peppered with accents of pink and orange. Finger sandwiches and savoury pastries were served on tiered trays.

What is a tea party without beautiful dainty teacups?

Can you spot the Singaporean traditional kopitiam teacups?
A celebratory toast with the bride-to-be's favourite alcoholic beverage is a must! Cheers!
