I have had a blast on all my shoots, bringing in props, and styling shoots… so it was only fitting it was finally MY turn to use my props for my sister’s bridal shower! I had been waiting for this moment and was also excited I was not gonna have to go far to set up the party! My sister Andrea said I could do whatever I wanted… I was in heaven! I came up with the whole theme in about an hour, yes I have “the sickness” as we creative geeks say. I kept it all very simple and of course wish I had a large budget, but had to face reality! My goal was to throw in my mix of modern/vintage and make this bridal shower not stuffy! It was a perfect sunny day on June 4th, but sadly too bright for great pics, and the fact I don’t know how to shoot in bright light! As I have been spoiled with amazing photographers, I did not have the luxury on this day… so in between setting it all up, I shot a couple casual pics… but I still hope you enjoy!
Above: I wanted a flirty name for our signature drink… no stuffy shower here!
I had to use my famous Door Table! This seems to be a staple now my family parties. We rented the chairs and grey table cloths, but I made the lace runners and finished the look with simple bud vases which I love.
A cute little dessert bar. I took a vintage frame and added lace behind it and the yellow ribbon for a little pop of color. The felt yellow flowers were a total impulse buy but ended being a cute little add in for the desserts!
Always the detail junkie… had to have these Martha Stewart picks.
Initial napkins for Andrea and Tom. One of my new favorite yellow vases.
