I receive many emails and requests for me to blog about different topics – everything from boudoirs to baby food. I was excited to receive this recent note because I have the perfect shower inspiration to share!
I was wondering if you would do a wedding or bridal shower post. Our daughter is getting married in October. Such a beautiful time of year! We are going with an earthy feel. Some burlap and soft greens and pale oranges. She is getting married in a mansion in the beautiful small town of Granville, Ohio. We know the look we want but just not sure how to put it all together, especially the food stations, Any tips?
Thank you so much,
Julie in Ohio
Julie, I think you'll find the ideas in this shower to be just right for your colors and mood. Although these pictures are actually of a baby shower, I believe many of the organic components can be spun into a lovely shower for a bride-to-be. Just add a dash of your pale orange accents!
Cupcakes on cake pedestals and cheese cubes on cutting boards? Pure delight! This helps keep all of the groupings organized and also adds another layer of texture.
I happen to think finger sandwiches are just about the best nibbly treat one can have at a shower, be it bridal or baby. Plus they're so dainty and graphic when carefully stacked such as these.
Obviously these sweet baby pin embellishments on the soda bottles elude to the shower's theme. To change it up for a chic bridal vibe, simply use ribbon with a sewn on button on each bottle. Lovely!
Now on to some other shower ideas to add to your organic theme…
This beautiful cake is from another post and was created by Chelsea at frolic - don't you love it?! I think the whimsical style could be perfect for a shower with burlap accents and touches of fresh green. Love the way Chelsea used the Rosemary sprigs as a type of winding garland on the cake. This elegant touch could work well with any type of seasonal small flower.
For parting gifts, simple boxes filled with treats could be a nice autumn touch…pretend like these cheery green boxes are topped with a soft orange tissue flower!
Good luck with your daughter's wedding, Julie!
