I’ve recently taken part in helping to host two different bridal showers for two of my closest friends. One was a carefree backyard shower with a preppy pineapple twist. The other was a more modern and sophisticated soiree. While I had more of a planning hand in the later shower, both were ideal for the two different brides. I find there is something so personal about planning showers. You can really capture the bride in small and thoughtful details. I think it shows a great display of love that a registry gift can’t quite capture. Cheers to #WynneTwoBleComeOne and#AlaviYouForever XO
Preppy Pineapple Shower
location: friend’s backyard
menu: catered fajita buffet
flowers: yours truly
napkins: LB Originals
LB Originals makes it so easy for me to give a special and personalized shower gift of monogram napkins. These will never go out of style!
A great set up for a backyard celebration.
Festive pineapple cookies.
The bride’s nickname is Ble Ble, so my friend had balloons made to keep things festive. Although the wind wouldn’t let them stay straight.

Modern Sophisticated Shower
location, menu, flowers: Urban Flower Grange Hall
place cards: Alli K Design
cake: Frosted Art Bakery
napkins: LB Originals
Grange Hall was the ideal spot for this bride. If you are in the Dallas area, you must come for lunch, or to see their beautiful gift store.
The florist is very creative here at Grange Hall. I knew I wanted to contrast of all white flowers and to play off of the marble inspired plates that they use. You would never know that those glass vases are painted on the outside. So chic!

The flowers seemed endless…
Alli K Design did an overwhelmingly fantastic job with the place cards. Her modern calligraphy is used from something as small as this, to something as important as wedding invitations. It fits the atmosphere beautifully.
The piéce de résistance….Frosted Art Bakery captured my vision in the most spectacular way. They even took the monogram of the napkin and used it as the topper for the cake. It was just as delicious as it was beautiful. Grange Hall added the flowers for a bridal touch.
LB Originals did such an incredible job helping me pick a more modern and unique monogram for my very Jan Showers inspired bride. I decided to go with a dark grey and white color pattern to compliment the marble.
The Mother of The Bride made very cool terrariums with a very real looking fake orchid and moss. Such a unique and thoughtful gift. If interested in any of her work, contact me and I can put you in touch.

I thought it was so fun how their flatware had an iridescent vibe.
Me and the bride both in blue and white.#BlueandWhiteForever. A fun time was had by all!
