Let’s talk about bridal showers and luncheons. These intimate soirees for a brides’ nearest and dearest stand out among the events surrounding weddings. With the rise of the mini wedding and celebration, they have become even more popular. Looking to host a memorable girls fête? My top tips are listed below!
1. Avoid Clichés
Here we set small tables that encouraged conversation in my Brooklyn garden. I opted for a multi-pastel color palette, feminine yes, but not expected. The embroidered light blue linens, pink napkins and unmatched china created a fun and untraditional table.
2. No Need For Floral Centerpieces
Instead of flowers, we used a dainty shower cake made by Sweet Genius star Ron Ben-Israel for the center of the table.
3. Give A Good Favor
Instead of predictable cookies or a half bottle of Prosecco, we tied silk ribbons around a variety of Greendigs plants that also served as party décor. Each guest left with a memento of the occasion—one that would actually last!
