Kelsey's Bridal Shower

You may remember the bridal invitations for my oldest sister Kelsey's bridal shower. With some help from my other two sisters and my mother, I threw a vintage-industrial-chic shower this past weekend. Here is a recap of the fun, flower-filled luncheon!

For the tables we kept decorations simple with some fresh lavender and baby's breath in green wine bottles, Mason jars filled with corks and black tea light lanterns. We used mismatched chairs to give the party a vintage vibe.

Our new pillars were the perfect way to hang our vintage hankies in the backyard.

 All of our guests loved the mimosa bar where we served orange, grapefruit and cranberry juices with fun fruit garnishes. I placed the drink containers on a crate to add some height to our buffet table.

 Kelsey was still deciding on a budget-friendly champagne to serve at the wedding, so we purchased different champagnes for her to sip before making her mimosa. This Friexenet Cordon Negro Brut was the favorite, and it's a steal at Trader Joe's.

Leading up to the shower, my mom and I scoured Goodwill and Salvation Army in search of detailed vintage champagne and wine glasses. From coupes to flutes, the glasses added the perfect amount of charm to our tables.
 
Our lunch menu consisted of two of our favorite salads from Stonefire Grill, three types of Trader Joe's pizzas and a fruit salad with whipped cream. For dessert I made a hummingbird bundt cake and again, thanks Trader Joe's for the macarons!

Plain ole water would have just looked boring next to our mimosa bar and food spread. Strawberries and oranges saved the day!

As favors, we let our guests each choose a vintage hankie and wine/champagne glass.

XX,
S. Roderick
