Two things that will never go out of style are gorgeous blooms and delicious sweets. Mix these gems together and you have the makings of a stunning bridal shower infused with the easy elegance of Chinet® Cut Crystal® products. For this party we looked to the ladylike beauty of florals, a well dressed table paired with a few DIYs and a pretty takeaway for guests. Read up for simple tips to infuse your next event with elegance and charm.
Pick a Theme
For this shower we decided to mix pretty feminine touches with the ease of a more casual place setting. Neutral linen chairs and a gorgeous wooden table got a feminine lift with floral prints, doilies, and piles of pale pink ribbons. We added Chinet® Cut Crystal® premium coordinating tableware for a fuss-free setup to complement this elegant look.
Chinet® Cut Crystal® products make it easier than ever to set a gorgeous, sophisticated table. With their line of fully coordinated disposable tableware, your place settings will be chic and crazy easy to clean up without the stress of having to do dishes. We especially love that part! Plus, you can entertain guilt-free because the entire line is recyclable.
Gussied Up Place settings
Place settings were so easy to customize and quick as can be, with Chinet® Cut Crystal® plates layered on top of custom calligraphy menu doilies on simple floral paper placemats. Pro tip - sneak a bit of double stick tape under each corner of the placemat so they don't go flying all over the table!
The Prettiest Calligraphy Menu
It's surprisingly easy to get a menu printed onto doilies! We worked with calligrapher Becca Joas to write up a beautiful menu for our shower (it fit in a 7.5" diameter circle). Then we printed the menu on clear, full sheet printable labels, cut them out with scissors and popped them onto paper doilies. Placed under Chinet® Cut Crystal® plates, they make for a stunning place setting.
The easiest centerpiece
Let your dessert take center stage! We gathered 7-9 clear raised cake stands (some were even pillar candle stands) to put our pretty desserts on for a real centerpiece statement. Then we wove a pink linen runner through the stands and looped a few spools of pale pink ribbon around the bases - voila! Plus, you'll save space with no need for a separate buffet table.
A Fun Bouquet Bar
For our Bouquet station, we grabbed the cutest rattan bar cart and filled it with tin flower buckets. Some were white already and a few others we did up with a quick coat of white spray paint. Some of the buckets were tall enough that we needed to fill the bottom with a bit of wet floral foam before we added our stems. You'll need more stems than you think to fill each bucket so buy more than you think you'll need.
We made sure to grab a variety of greenery, smaller flowers, and larger blooms to choose from. Don't forget pretty paper to wrap with, along with scissors and ribbon! A gorgeous oversize sign from Becca Joas was the finishing touch.
Throwing a sophisticated shower with elegance and ease is a whole lot easier with the help of the Chinet® Cut Crystal® line of coordinating products. Their clear design and elegant swirl pattern perfectly match any theme or décor so you can throw a gorgeous party and leave the hassle free cleanup to them.
