💐 Table Decor
Use vintage tablecloths and floral arrangements in your chosen color scheme to dress up your tables. Search your local thrift stores for old candlesticks and candelabras to accent your table dressings. For an extra unique touch—perfect for a Bridgerton tea party—use teacups, teapots, and saucers as centerpieces to hold flowers, condiments, and desserts.
