Last weekend I had the honor of hosting my adorable nieces bridal shower. I can not believe she is getting married (seriously, am I really that old?! lol ) When she told me the colors of her wedding I was so excited to incorporate them into her shower. She chose blush, green, gold and white with a rustic feel. I decided to mix in rose gold as well as gold to give it that special touch. I love mixing metals!
The wood backdrop is made from old barn wood and totally made a huge impact on the look and feel of the shower. I am a fan of decor with many purposes. A lot of the decor and items we used came from inside my home. If you are wanting to put something similar together for an event I would suggest a few larger statement pieces to really make it stand out and complete the look.
Let’s talk cake for a minute. If you know me, you know I am no Betty Crocker. I decided to have a local bakery bake cake rounds for me. I then used buttercream icing in-between the cake rounds. The nice thing about naked cakes is that they do not need to be perfect. After layering the cake with icing all you need to do is grab a spatula, smooth the outside of the layers, top with decor of your choice and whalla!
For the main decor of the shower I kept it simple. I did a lot of greenery and florals all around. Adding those in everywhere really made everything else pop. As for the center pieces, we used mason jars filled with lemon slices and babies breath. If you attempt this just make sure to put a smaller clear cup inside of the mason jar first, arrange the lemon slices around the clear cup then add water. If you do not use a cup to arrange them around they will float to the top. These center pieces gave it the perfect summer feel.
We did cute little recipe cards for all of the guests to write down their favorite recipes and share them with the bride to be. Perfect for newly weds! For the party favors I included mini eyeshadows and nail polishes all coordinating colors of the shower.
I could not be more happy with how everything turned out and am so excited for my niece to get married next week!
