Before wedding season is in full swing there is bridal shower season to tackle first. In the past few years I’ve had more than a couple showers/bachelorettes to plan and although it can get overwhelming I always have such an incredible time. I LOVE planning events. Especially smaller intimate gatherings with family and friends. My little sister got married this past year and I had the pleasure of throwing her a bright and summery bridal shower at my mom’s house in Michigan. I gathered a lot of inspiration from pinterest and set to work building around my theme of “love story”. I was so pleased with how everything turned out and even better, so was the bride!
Keep your eyes peeled for book page details and a secondary lemon theme throughout.
A love story.
Coffee and donut station.
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something brewed.
For the food and drink signage there was a little love quip that also explained the item. To stand them up I presented them stuck in a lemon.
Diamond ring donuts.
Mama needs her mimosas.
Lemon champagne cupcakes with lavender buttercream.
Above the dessert station was a timeline of the bride and groom’s courtship.
Parfait Bar/Food table. Notice the book page table runner.
Cooling the quiche and ham buns before adding them to the table.
Framed reasons why the groom loves the bride. I scattered them on a few table tops.
