Chef and Bride-to-Be Alina Aghazarian celebrated her upcoming wedding with a Creative Kitchen Themed Bridal Shower filled with gorgeous blooms, chef’s tools and more playful cooking inspired decor. As a fan of creative cooking, this shower really impressed me- I just love the colander vases, kitchen timer favors and fun “decorate the apron” game! (And for more Kitchen Inspired Party Ideas go here and here.)
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
– Rolling Pin, Spatula and Mixer Decor accented with beautiful florals by Blue Iris
– “Welcome to Alina’s Kitchen” Seating Chart Sign
– Colander Centerpieces, “Recipe For Love” Cards and Kitchen Timer Favors
– Kitchen Themed Cupcakes with spatula and quilted oven mitt fondant toppers!
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Alina…
Wanted to share this amazing kitchen shower theme done for me. The theme was fit just for me since I am a chef and I love everything that has to do with a kitchen, so what better way to celebrate my shower than a kitchen theme! The shower was held at a Tennis Club. Guests were greeted with Mimosas and cocktail hour was held in the beautiful patio over looking the tennis court.
The welcome table consisted of my kitchen themed shower card, a cute wooden box of cookbooks and farmers market fresh vegetables. The seating chart was placed on a chalk board and the words ” Welcome to Alina’s Kitchen” drawn onto it. The centerpieces of the tables were of White Colanders filled with flowers. Each guest received a kitchen timer that looked like a mini blender as a favor. They also had to give their best “Recipe for Love” which was placed by their seat on the table.
We had a custom made colander cupcake tower. Wooden spoons were an accent to the shower, they were placed on the gift bags and were also in the cupcake tower. The cupcakes were decorated with kitchen themed products such as a rolling pin, oven mittens, spatula and a kitchen towel with the initials “A+A” on it. The dessert table consisted of amazing petit fours and a Kitchen Aid Mixer as a centerpiece with flowers coming out of it.
Some of the games we played were “decorate the apron” and a special presentation consisting of a timeline of different types of underwear I will go through during my years of being married. The prizes for the games were different types of herbs and seasonings.
