As the new mother prepares for the birth of her baby, friends and family can balance the impending chaos with a calming Zen Tea Shower. You will not find a scone, floral chintz, or a cup of English tea at this tea party. The style of this shower is minimalist, meditative, and serene. Steeped in tradition, the tea ceremony celebrates harmony, respect, and tranquility, which are the perfect sentiments for a baby shower. If you elect not to incorporate a formal tea ritual, your shower can still be planned and carried out in this atmosphere of calm and balance.
