Pink & Gold Bridal Shower June 24 2014, 11 Comments

My friend Caity is about to get married this summer after 6 years of dating her college sweetheart so I wanted to throw her a bridal shower that was as sweet and beautiful as her. Caity's favorite color is pink so I knew I had to have a pink themed shower. I've been obsessed with color combination pink and gold and that is the inspiration I used for the shower. Pale light pinks that contrast with glittery metallic golds. 

Invitations set the tone for the event with a simplistic design using elegant lettering and a pale pink background. This design was carried through the stationery for the event including the favors, food labels, straw flags and shower game.

The table was set with metallic gold chargers, pale pink napkins and gold flatware. The centerpiece was light pink roses placed in gold and glitter mason jars that I made myself. These mason jars added glam and interest to the table and cost me under $10 to make. Click here to see how to make them yourself!

Champagne is a must-have at any bridal shower because it's time to pop the bubbly and celebrate the bride-to-be. Champagne happens to be Caity's favorite drink so I went with a bubbly bar complete with three different juices and berries. I dressed up the champagne flutes with chevron striped straws and personalized straw flags. 

I served brunch with fresh fruits and muffins. I used a streamer curtain that I made as a backdrop to the table.

There must be dessert...

Whenever I'm hosting a shower I love to set up a comfortable nook for the guest of honor to open presents. Because let's be honest half of the shower is opening presents, so you want everyone to be as comfortable as possible. This lovely streamer curtain is a perfect backdrop for pictures while the bride is opening presents and can be used as a "photobooth" for the shower as well. The best part about this streamer backdrop is that it cost me under $10 to make by getting the streamer at the DollarTree.

 

The bride-to-me and myself. We had a great turn out and it was a lot of fun! Congrats to Caity and Alex!
