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!

apple of my eye bridal shower

While most Fall celebrations and apple-inspired parties play off of the classic red variations, Christina Christian of Something Chic used the tart, delicious green ones! Her Bright GREEN APPLE of My Eye Bridal Shower will light-up any bride-to-be with sweet satin ribbon bow details and healthy-ish dessert table goodies. *Eye* can’t wait for you to see Jonathan Gibson Photography‘s vibrant pictures below…

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Apple silhouette chairback name cards, tissue pom accents & pink scallop trim menu
– Pink and white polka dot linen napkins + “You’re the apple of my eye” green ribbon tied tags

chalkboard fondant Paris cake

Even though Christina D’Angelo of Pearls and Spice was inspired by “Paris in Springtime” when she created this charming Vintage-Chic Paris Dessert Table, I think you’ll agree that the beautiful desserts and table styling displayed here can be appreciated any time of year!

In addition to the great use of chalkboard accents, (which is always a plus in my book!), one of the first things that struck me about these photos were the incredibly detailed and realistic flowers on the cakes… can you believe those are made out of sugar?! And I love that she included such a great mix of flower sizes and styles to create those beautiful, cascading clusters. Bon travail, Christina!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Open vintage frame backdrop adorned with prints of photos taken on Paris streets
– Incredibly realistic, handcrafted sugar flowers on each cake
– Pretty mini pastries like flower-topped mousse cups, lemon tarts and French macarons… of course!
– Hand-painted, chalkboard-style center tier on the tallest cake + chalkboard Patisserie menu
