Garden Bridal Shower

Garden Bridal Shower Theme

A wedding planner has to plan the most gorgeous wedding for some of your most prestigious clients.  So you would think her bridal shower would be over the top.

However, it goes to show that simple is elegant.  Bridal showers don’t have to overly decorated to be impressive or to be a show stopper.  Instead it’s all about getting together with your closest family & friends….enjoying each others company & celebrating the engagement of a bride-to-be.

The advantage to having a garden shower is the backdrop that is already in place such as the landscaping with gorgeous flowers, shrubs, & trees.  So for the shower, the table setting & decorations provide a beautiful centerpiece in the middle of a garden.

The bride-to be is wedding planner, Lotta Alexandersson of  Mint Design  , who has an eye for gorgeous fresh flowers & outdoor weddings.

Instead of playing bridal games, guests were asked to write a date night idea for the bride & groom.

The long, elegant table was prepared for 40 guests.  Guests were served a light, lunch plate of hors d’oeuvres.

Fanciful flower arrangements, whimsical vine cascading down the cake, & charming cookies make this table simply elegant.  Custom cookies with guest’s wedding title were placed on top of their piece of cake, by Bord A Petit Catering.

…………….three fold wooden backdrop with a simple greenery laurel wreath garland that was the perfect touch to finish the backyard and distinguish the table to frame it in the vast backyard. I incorporated cream-colored yarn in various design elements as it is soft and feminine and blows so subtly in the wind. The yarn chandelier hung above the cake off centered, not to take away from the cakes’ simple beauty. The party favor was a little clay pot that I spray painted a cream color, which held soap in the shape of a rose. They were so sweet and simple.

The florals included some of my favorite blooms. Peonies, dahlias, garden roses, ranunculus, tulips and spray roses to name a few. The greenery springs consisted of smilax, jasmine vine and Italian ruscus. They were a perfect pop to the simple elegance of the candles………posted by Gabrielle Hurwitz.
