A baby or bridal shower is a precious time in which a bride or mother-to-be share their excitement for their marriage or new bundle of joy with close loved ones. As a result, these events can be stressful if they aren’t planned out and executed properly. Aside from choosing invitations, activities, you want your shower to be aesthetically pleasing as well. A recent event at Celebrate at Snug Harbor offers some key styling inspiration that you can use for your next event.
Styled by Courtney Maggart, of Relish Caterers + Event Planners, this shower focused on keeping the table abundant with goodies, as well as making the focus of the decor the fabulous florals.
An Abundant Table:
You’ll want an attractive table as the statement piece of the main room of your shower. This table should be filled with beverages, snacks, as well as decorations. In the featured collage, you’ll notice that Courtney used tall flowers as the table’s backdrop, with smaller flowers between the chips, dip, and drink glasses. By scattering the items throughout the table, the varied shapes and textures give the guests of this event something fun to approach and pick at.
Have a Color Scheme:
For this event, the main colors ranged from white to lavender florals with green leafing. These colors are scattered throughout the cake, flowers, and the accentuating tissue paper used as fillers. To enhance the rustic feel of the event, flowers and gift bags were placed in wicker woven baskets and antique oval glass domes. Very charming!
Insert Conversation Pieces:
When planning an event where not all guests may know one another, insert small pieces to help them begin a conversation. In the featured collage, you’ll notice a framed menu and framed paper instructing guests to fill out a name tag and grab a monogrammed bag, as seen in the upper right photo of the collage. Some small items that show your consideration of your guests will offer them an opportunity to share memories and stories about you!
Showers, birthdays, or other momentous events are opportunities for you and your loved ones to spend some quality time together. For this reason, you’ll want to invest in a venue that will take care of the stressful elements for you, such as food, decor, and setup.
