A party would not be a party without details…and champagne! Kelsey’s bohemian bridal shower passed both these tests with flying colors. I was honored to be able to take part in styling this shower for my B.F.F.! What made it even more special was that it was planned by the bride’s sister/MOH and set up with the help of her entire family and bridesmaids. Now that’s a labor of LOVE!
If you or a friend is planning a shower yourself, have no fear… this picture-perfect feat hosted in the garden courtyard of Kelsey’s own Irvine apartment complex was put together with very minimal outside vendor help…and even better… on a budget!
First things first, whenever you’re having a gathering with your best girlfriends, you’ve gotta have a sparkly drink for the occasion! And what’s better than customizing your own glass of bubbly with a little summery fruit & juice? A festive build-your-own mimosa bar was the first stop for many of Kelsey’s attendees. Carafes, a cute homemade sign, some modern glassware from Baker Party Rental and a few bowls of everyone’s favorite fruits were all we needed to create a fun and colorful drink station.Festivities commenced with a few snacks and desserts prepared and styled with the help of Kelsey’s mom, sister/MOH and bridesmaids. Heart-shaped rice krispy treats, chocolate dipped strawberries, it doesn’t get any sweeter! Since geodes & crystals were incorporated into Kelsey’s wedding theme & invitations, rock crystal detail was a must! And, of course, sugary rock candy sticks just sealed the deal.
Jars of colorful sugar scrub handmade by the mother of the bride were the perfect favor, lovingly layered in different earthy hues to look like minerals. This was a final detail that the guests just died over. Way to go, M.O.B.!
Kelsey’s photo booth was a huge crowd pleaser, its structure built by none other than the father of the bride and draped with painter’s cloth and a eucalyptus garland. Photo props are always a fun addition to step the fun up a notch, and a great way to incorporate your wedding hashtag!
Thanks for stopping by to share in the fun!
