Planning a bridal shower for your best gal? We got you! Besides the bride and a guest list of good friends, we happen to believe there are 5 essentials to make it the party of her dreams! Take these tips and tailor them to the bride’s tastes + preferences, and you’re golden! (But honestly, what bride doesn’t love waffles?!)
Roxanne McClure designed + photographed this super sweet day, filled with SoCal sunset hues, yummy food, and everything you need for a successful soirée. Let’s have a look!
Cute Food Spread (The More Puns the Better!)
Roxanne‘s chicks + waffle wall is SO FUN! (PS: She also created this taco wall!) Any wall of food is the best kind of wall, to be honest. Find a few fun treats and display them on a spread to remember.
Theses toasts are a great idea to get you started: rustic bread topped with Greek yogurt, blackberries, figs, and walnuts, then drizzled with local honey!
Fun Drink Details
Rosé ANYway is a good idea, but up the create ante with a few edible flowers! These stir sticks by Creative Amme are the perfect finish!
The Perfect White Ensemble
Okay, gals: time to shop!! We LOVE a good white party outfit and here’s a few of our current faves!
Fresh + Fun Blooms
Graceful Garland and Co. created these fun arrangements from peonies, matiljia poppies, double tulips, bunny tails, pampas grass, spray roses and red ice protea. Our best tip? Find seasonal blooms!
A Sweet Finish
Finally, a party isn’t a party without something sweet! Turn to the pros or stop by the bride’s favorite bakery for a special treat. (Tip: A few macarons on the side never hurt anybody.) Add a few blooms to the cake table and you’re all set!
Thanks to Roxanne and the creative team for sharing this fun day with us!
