Stunning Lavender & Black Bridal Shower

Purple & Black Bridal Shower Wedding

Virginia of Brooke Keegan Weddings and Events sent in this STUNNING Lavender & Black Bridal Shower, and from the pretty color palette and lacy party favors to the festive champagne bar, this soirée is elegant, stylish, and a little bit sexy!

In addition to the gorgeous floral arrangements that run all the way down the length of the table – literally creating a table runner of flowers – I’m just loving how the fabulous Murano glass chandelier is suspended & displayed over the table… outdoors!

The main theme color – lavender – is the bride’s favorite color. Black accents added a glamorous vibe for a bride who fancies herself sitting front row at a runway show during fashion week.

The star of the decor was a black Italian Murano glass chandelier. Bringing interior decor outdoors added a cool, unique vibe to the party.

For the signature cocktails, a custom-made plexiglass box was created to house a champagne bar with all the fixings.

There was also a “candy shop” element to the theme, which was reflected in the candy bar and party favors (made by yours truly), which were mini vintage candy jars filled with with undergarments that matched the theme color! The bride’s favor, of course, was WHITE!

In an effort to serve food that was both dainty enough to fit a ladylike bridal shower AND gourmet enough to appeal to all the guests’ foodie palettes, the food was all “mini” or one-bite delicacies.”

I have to say this is the very prettiest that I have ever seen…….
But then again a passion for both purple and orchids has
overtaken my life ever since living in Thailand…….

What a beautiful blog.

I shall stop by often!
