Tea Party Theme Nursery Decor and Decorating Ideas for a Baby Girl Nursery Room
Bring the tea party theme nursery decor out of the flower garden and into your baby girl's room. Why limit the charm of a Victorian garden tea party to the very few days when the weather is fine enough to load up the tableware, linen tablecloths and vintage tea set to take outside? It seems that the answer to having a successful tea whenever the mood strikes might be to design a room in a tea party style of decor.
Paint a mural of the English countryside to give your room the gift of eternal springtime or if decorations with less permanence are more to your taste, framed pictures of ladies in Victorian clothing taking the air at outdoor tables set with china tea sets and bouquets of cabbage roses, hollyhocks and foxgloves will set the stage quite nicely.
Beyond the framed artwork that we mentioned could be used as tea party bedroom wall decorations, what could possibly be more appropriate than a DIY nursery lamp made of teacups surrounded by an arrangement of wall sconces each featuring a single china tea pot, a collection of miniature tea sets on display inside a shadow box for a lovely display where busy hands aren’t tempted and painted wooden wall letters with tea pot or tea party motifs.
Decorators might consider actually setting the table for a tea party
as part of the decor at least until baby is learning to walk.
The centerpiece of the wall decorations might be the baby girl's initials or monogram in an elegant font.
TEA PARTY BABY BEDDING
You might wonder if nursery bedding printed with tea pots is available or if you would have to have a set of custom baby bedding made. This could very well be the case, but I would like to encourage you to consider ideas for fabric motifs other than items included in a tea set. Bedding printed with elegant accessories or clothing that a lady might wear to a tea would make cute tea party theme baby bedding options. Garden hats, pearls or pairs of crocheted lace gloves are all compatible with a tea party so look for fabrics with those motifs. Your other option might be a chintz floral fabric with heirloom cabbage roses.
TEA PARTY THEME FURNITURE
Feminine nursery furniture with graceful curves and carvings or shabby chic furnishings would be perfect for a tea party theme nursery for baby. Keep things light and airy to replicate the pleasurable atmosphere of taking tea in the garden. A miniature tea table and chairs set in the corner can double as a craft table when your little girl isn’t serving tea to her baby dolls.
When we picture a vintage print of an English afternoon tea party, the colors that come to mind are pastels like those in a faded watercolor painting. Modern tea parties might be a little more funky than sedate, old fashioned garden parties. Bright purple and hot pink are just as acceptable as powder pink and pale lavender with shades of green and blue to cool things down.
