Modern Love Birds Bridal Shower - Pink Yellow Black White

When it comes to special occasion parties like baby or bridal showers, one of my favorite things to do is take a popular theme and give it a fresh and unexpected twist! Why? Because it’s so fun to see the reactions from guests when they notice the playful elements and thoughtful details that went into creating a truly UNIQUE experience for them.

So, when I was recently asked to dream up a party inspired by one of the awesome new Vintage Charm™ Mixing & Prep Bowls, I took one look at the Birds of a Feather design and thought – “Love Birds Bridal Shower!”… but with a modern twist. ;) By the way – for those of you that love nostalgia – all of the Vintage Charm designs are inspired by popular Pyrex® designs from the 50’s, 60’s & early 70’s!

A Modern Love Birds Bridal Shower
“Love Birds” is a popular theme that typically leans rustic or “shabby chic garden party” in style, but the high contrast black and white design on the Birds of a Feather bowls instantly had me wanting to go bold and modern for this soirée, with some bright and spunky colors brought in for summer…

I also decided to go more “birds on a wire” than “birds in a nest” with this design, and incorporated artsy elements like mod sketched flowers and color-blocked feathers. Read on for more details + free printables. I hope you enjoy this playful take on the Love Birds theme, and find some inspiration here for your own celebrations!

chemistry themed bridal shower cake
With nearly a decade of sharing creative parties here at HWTM, we’ve seen our fair share of awesome chemistry-inspired birthday parties, but this is the first time a Chemistry Inspired Bridal Shower popped in my inbox, and I was instantly smitten!

This beautiful and outside-the-box celebration (for bride-to-be Adrienne) was hosted by loved ones and features clever decorative elements and lots of playful DIY decor, including the banner, guest games, table numbers, and more. The shower was sent in by Alaina Lewis – one of Adrienne’s friends and Maids of Honor that contributed to the shower, who explains that, “Though neither the bride nor groom are chemists professionally, they’re both self-declared nerds and the theme was a hit!” And from the looks of these images and all the happy guests, I’d venture to say that those positive results are conclusive! ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– A “Concoct Your Own Bath Salts” favor station + keepsake serving tray “guest book”
– Erlenmeyer flask drinking glasses with blue stripey straws
– Test tube table centerpieces + periodic table inspired banners and table decor
– A clever DNA-inspired tier cake + glittery “Perfect Chemistry” topper!
