A Royal Affair Bridal Shower

I’ve received a few emails lately asking for some bridal shower inspiration, so when the lovely Vanessa at Alchemy Fine Events said she had a bridal shower she recently designed and would love to share, it was just so perfect! Lots of yummy and pretty ideas from their creative shower. Paula Luna of Luna Photo photographed the event.

A bit about the inspiration behind the day, Prince Charming came into mind when we thought about the special groom-to-be, so only a Royal Affair was appropriate for this luxurious bridal shower. Inspired by the backdrop of the gorgeous ocean view, shades of blues ranging from cobalt and aqua to teal were blended with warm amber glassware, silver and gold for a truly opulent effect.

The Tablescape Crystals glistened in the sunlight hanging off of tiered cupcake stands that were used in lieu of vases. Each cupcake tier was topped of with a single white mum. Flower balls created out of clusters of various flowers including spider mums, garden roses, lisianthus and daisies were displayed on tall elegant glass vases. For additional interest and warmth blossoming prairie stems were clustered with spider mums in teal Portuguese glassware and amber bud vases, while the Queen’s royal ceramic horses stood guard on each end. To top off the level of luxury, oversized cobalt crystal diamonds were scattered atop the table.

Handmade Nepalese navy, teal and gold printed papers were lined with gold and aqua ribbons to create custom runners and napkin rings for each place setting while name tags in the same custom shape as the invitation were tied onto the backs of each chair.

The Mimosa Bar Buckets of champagne and sparkling Italian sodas were served in hand blown blue champagne flutes accompanied by an array of juices such as blueberry (to match the party palette), pomegranate, and classic orange.

The Dessert Bar Sweet confections in shades of blues accented with gold, silver and white danced atop vintage mirrored trays, lead cut crystal candy dishes and gold risers. Scrumptious vanilla cake pops were made with aqua frosting and topped with candy pearls alongside aqua colored blueberry cake pops with vanilla frosting and aqua sprinkles. As a fun dessert centerpiece we created a jumbo cupcake topped with the initials of the bride-to-be, Prince Charming had never looked so sweet!
