This shower crafted by Twenty Three Layers along with florals by Van Vliet & Trap should get the best ever brunch award and it has everything to do with the dessert spread. Donuts, artisan marshmallows AND gem shaped cookies are only the beginning. Try adding a savory farm-to-table breakfast, like 3 billion choices of drink bars and a sea of pretty color captured by Kathleen O’Donnell. It’s proving that being surrounded by pastel is the best way to brunch. A mimosa bar helps too.
We just loved planning this very special shower for our guest of honor! Such a fun theme with our favorite color palette (pastels) + a modern twist of geometric shapes giving the room a clean, fun and lively vibe!
As guests enter the space they drop books and gifts onto the custom book cart. Servers offer them welcome cocktails and a specialty mocktail we named “Flower Child” as the mocktail was adorned with edible flowers. We built a custom juice bar with Juice Press organic juices which was a total crowd pleaser! Along with a Mimosa + Bloody Mary station set up on opposite ends of the bar.
Working within a raw space, we wanted to create a warm and comfortable environment by adding a lounge area which we styled using pastel touches.
For the kids, we created their own little area where they were able to do fun diy projects and take photos of each other using pastel polaroid cameras! There was a DIY Onesie station where adults were able to have some fun with the kids-hanging their dolled up onesies from a close line.
Poppy’s Catering provided a Farm to Table experience offering delicious salads, proteins and yummy quiches! And for that sweet treat, we created one of our signature style dessert bars filled with yummy treats For the backdrop we framed a piece of the same fabric we used for the table runner, tying it all in.
