We pretty much never feature bridal showers on SMP but after seeing this adorable little fete, I am officially putting them on our must have list. Planned and designed by Jeannie at Details Details for her cute friend Grace, the details behind this shower are basically what I want my entire life to look like. Sweet, pretty, and completely girl. Oh and the lovely Chenin Boutwell snapped the darling pictures so you really get to see this little gem in all its girly perfection.
From Jeannie at Details Details…
I titled it “shower with love”, as I am the Matron of Honor for Grace’s wedding. I really wanted her to have a beautiful shower, something that was completely her style….cute and pretty, soft and sweet. I got cake stands from Williams Sonoma in pink and yellow and filled them with cupcakes. Cupcakes were customized with baby sugar flowers. The empty cupcake boxes were placed into fabric bags that I made, placed at each seat. Then at the end, everyone could fill up their favorite flavor. I think chocolate with vanilla frosting and white chocolate sprinkles was the most popular. Fresh, soft, happy colors….Grace loves pink. We paired it with the color butter as the patio has yellow tones. Grace and I would make flower pens during college, so I thought it would be fun to remind her of those times, since we needed pens for the Grace letter. A letter that each guest would fill out of their memories of Grace (later to be scrap booked) I bought mini vases from a craft store and had a local florist fill them with peonies, tulips, garden roses and sweet peas. They were scattered down the center of the table, lined by a light pink silk dupioni runner. Glass bottles from Anthropologie, which I borrowed, added to the garden like setting. Fun, bold cocktail rings were also another party favor…embedded into flower pots and green lily stands. All the girls had fun picking their ring! Thanks to Nichelle who made all the paper goods, from the adorable invite, to the menu card, even the welcome straw tags.
