Time for another Bridal Shower this year on the month of September!
For the past 2 consecutive years, I’ve been a part of 2 bridal showers already! One organized by my beloved bridesmaid for myself, and another for Citygal last year! Yes. Both on September too 🙂
It’s definitely fun, joyous and honourable to throw our BFF, the bride-to-be, a gift-giving party in anticipation of her wedding.
Organizing a bridal shower could be a challenge when you do not know where to start. But lucky me, I’ve Ivy who has been such a great partner in tea-parties-organizing. Great minds think alike! LOL!
So , let the pictures do the talking shall we?
The One, Two, Threes of the recent Bridal Shower that might be a little help to boost your idea if you’re organizing one for your BFF too!
#1 Theme: Yen in Wonderland
We love themed parties! And with themes, it would definitely be easier to plan a party. Colours, props and other arrangements. And it would be great if the theme matches the bride’s personality too.
Since our BFF Yen, is a spontaneous, cheerful & outgoing person, we decided to go for a colourful theme with pink being the core colour and the incorporation of “Alice in Wonderland” sort of settings. For example incorporating the touch of Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. And instead of wearing hats, the girls have to wear a bow/ ribbon on their hair. Girls in white/ beige while we made the bride-to-be wore bright pink!
#2 Project Insta!
About 1 week before the shower took place, we would hashtag a pic that reads #yensteaparty on Instagram to create some sneak peek for the Bride-to-be. Oh! I’ve always love creating new ######!
#3 Venue: Le Moon’s Eatery. Bakery. Zakka @ Jade Hills, Kajang
After a few enquiry on various places for the tea party, we settled for Le Moon’s Eatery. Bakery. Zakka. A decent and cute looking cafe that’s nestled in the Jade Hills neighbourhood in Kajang. For more detailed review of the place, you could read our review HERE & HERE.
Why Le Moon?
- They have ample space for party planning. Since there was only 10 of us, we occupied the 1st floor of the eatery. If you’re planning a bigger party like birthdays, weddings etc, you could utilise the top floor.
- Discussions on how we want our party to be would be conducted prior to that
- Comfy & beautiful table setting – small flower arrangements and heart-folded serviette on the table
- Perfect ambiance for our theme
- Friendly & efficient staffs
- Delicious food of course!
The tea party food spread are recommended by the chef and you could choose what you would like to have on your menu or don’t. Very personalized 🙂
Here’s what we had for RM50++ per pax! (Drinks not included)
A mixture of savouries & sweets!
Mini Chicken Burger, Fire Cracker, Smoked Salmon Sandwich, Wild mushroom, garlic and thyme tartlet with goats cheese
Raisin Danish, Scone with whipping cream and fruity jams, Fruit Parfait, Bread & Butter Pudding
Mini Cupcakes, Mini New York Cheese Cake, Valrona Chocolate Cake
I think we went a little greedy with the food and we can’t finish them all and had to take-away! LOL. So be warned! Although written as mini, the portion was huge! Overall, the hi tea spread was good! Not just good looking, but tasted beautiful too. And they were value for money 🙂
#4 Handmade Settings!
We love handmade stuffs and love making them! From banners, props & other cute signage, we got it!
Well, balloons are not handmade though. Hehe. Balloons are one of the best props! Pink & White for the day!
Putting on food tags 🙂

Name tags for every girls! Since it’s a wonderland theme, we made Rabbit a main character and thus, all bunnies related! That’s the cotton wool as their fluffy tails.
Peter Rabbit & his Rabbit hole!
#5 Photobooth Props
Downloaded printables with the tea party theme
#6 Crown & Sash, and Table stand for the “Bride-To-Be”

#8 Crowning Session
As soon as the bride-to-be arrives, make sure you crown her! Make her the queen! 🙂
#9 Bridal Shower Games
Play simple games! For us, we did the “How Well do you Know your Hubby” game 🙂
It was really hilarious watching her think and answer so happily and at the same time making us all laughed till we drop! LOL.
#10 Bridal Gift
At the end of the session, gift presentation! Be sure to get something really useful for her upcoming wedding. Hehe.
