REAL PARTIES: Pink Bridal Shower

Quick Jump To » Comments

This beautiful “Pink” bridal shower was thrown by hip hostess Margaret Lee of the greengelato blog. Margaret did a great job on this pink-themed outdoor brunch, which – among other things – featured lots of tissue pomanders, gorgeous bunches of roses in varying shades of pink, an amazing food display complete with little marker flags, pink drinks, and adorable polka-dotted japanese sugar cups!

Pink Bridal Shower

Pink Bridal Shower Another great thing about this shower? It was very budget-conscious! The cute little sugar cups and wrapping paper were from a Japanese 99-cent store and the tissue pomanders, flower arrangements, and food were all home-made. Shows that you don’t have to spend a fortune to make it look like you did! Click here for even more images and details about the shower…and kudos to Margaret and everyone else who helped host it!

    A beautiful shower on a budget – I love it! I appreciate things that are practical so much more than things that are over the top.

    how can i add to the “real parties” section with images & info from parties i’ve hosted?

    studio wellspring –
    You can email a couple sample party images (web-resolution) or a URL where your images can be viewed to with “real parties” in the subject – and we can check them out and see if it will be a good fit!

    I just saw an awesome bridal shower! You must check it out – I think this could be your next “Real-Life” party!

    SHe is a photographer (an excellent one) based out of Northern California – and she’s getting married in Sept. Anyway – I think her pics will say it all!

    Hi Karen –

    Thanks for the tip! I checked out the shower you were talking about – WOW! It’s absolutely gorgeous! Looks like a wedding :) I’ll definitely be getting in touch with her!

    Thanks again,
    Jenn :)

    It’s crazy! At first I thought it was a wedding or Rehearsal Dinner. It’s great to have such loving/creative friends. I also emailed Jennifer (the bride) about your blog so hopefully she will contact you as well! She’s a busy lady though…

    Love your blog!

    i love the paper-made flowers. is there anyway you can tell me how you did those or how they can be made? i am throwing a bridal shower for my best friend and would love to add those to the decoration.

    thank you!

    Hi Tia –

    Here’s a step by step tutorial for you:

    Martha Stewart actually has tissue pom-pom kits that you can buy in her section at Michaels craft stores too. She used to sell the pink ones online, but looks like they’re sold out now. The yellow ones are still available though:

    The tutorial above will give you the same thing as the kit though, so you can create any color you want. Happy decorating! :)

    Hello Jenn and talented staff,
    My daughter recently was proposed to at a Detroit Tigers Baseball Game. It was so exciting to see it unfold on the scoreboard vision screen, for all patrons to view. Afterwards there were fireworks at the stadium, how beautiful. They plan a fall wedding in 2012. Thinking shower first, I thought maybe a “baseball or fireworks” theme. I don’t want it to look cheesie and You being the “Parties with Personality” Experts, I wondered if you could shed some creativity to get me started. I often cruise your website and have told many people of your professional with a fun-twist quality. Hope you can take a moment for me, I look forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you, Lauren
