The Knot recommends that whoever is hosting and planning these occasions should consult with the bride as the necessary first step in the process. There are a number of questions that should be considered. What type of venue is most appropriate? Is there a particular cocktail that should be featured? Will it be an all-ladies event, or can the men come too?
April recently shared a handful of ideas for creating awe-inspiring tablescapes for your wedding reception. They were fabulous, but engagement parties and bridal showers are prime spots to really get outrageous or just take a more fun approach to your designs.
I came across this adorable tablescape while I was surfing around Pinterest today that I thought was worthy of a share. It’s nothing too outrageous, and, in fact, it’s entirely quaint and delightful. Blushing pink and white peonies in a ornate vase serve as a centerpiece, which is accented with a Scrabble board that reads “Bride To Be.” AND, the napkins have a stylish menu tucked with them that features the modern chevron design – one of my personal favorites! This arrangement is a perfect example of how you can use personal details, likes and interests to model your tablescapes for the bridal shower.
Take a look at this photo I found on Pinterest, too! I love this tablescape design because it is particularly unique and bold. Rather than use a traditional floral arrangement for a centerpiece, this creative design used a bowl full of kitchen supplies! Who knew kitchen supplies could look so good?
