A Lovely Lemon & Lavender Bridal Shower

Even though we’re in the middle of winter right now, it’s actually the PERFECT time to start planning ahead for springtime (or summer) parties! So on that note, I’m excited to bring you a fresh burst of sunny party inspiration in one of my favorite spring palettes today. The combo of bright yellow + chic lavender creates such a sweet, feminine look that works well for all sorts of occasions.

The talented Valerie Gimre of Charming Touch Parties was so inspired by this happy color combination that she used it as the theme for this gorgeous Lemon & Lavender Bridal Shower AND for gender-neutral baby shower, which you can check out right here. So I guess this is technically TWO bursts of party inspiration for today. Thanks, Valerie! ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– pretty drink stirrers adorned with “soon to be Mrs” party flags & dainty yellow bows
– soft lavender paper cups embellished with bright yellow lemon silhouettes
– tall glass cylinders & apothecary jars filled with bright yellow lemons
– beautiful dessert table backdrop featuring the bride’s initial + pastel rag tie bunting

LOVE ly Tea Party Bridal Shower {Vintage Lace + Pastels}

If there was a visual definition for “gorgeous bridal shower”, I’m pretty sure this LOVE-ly Tea Party themed celebration would be it!

Styled by the talented ladies of Events in the City and featuring tons of DIY details by the mother of the bride (Lyn), there are seriously SO many lovely details to soak in here… it was all I could do to keep this post from being a mile long! I might be pushing that here anyways, but it’s all fabulous eye candy, so I figure it’s worth the “trip”. ;)

Special Note…

As lovely as all these party details may be, the sweet thank you message that the bride has for her mom is even lovelier. You’ll find it towards the bottom of this post, in the “Party Details” section below the images. (Lyn, if you’re reading this – better get a tissue ready first!) As a mom of 2 girls myself, I sure hope they feel the same way about me when they grow up… which is still quite a long ways off, but as we all know, it’s crazy how time flies! And now back to the pretty party details…

*****

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Lacy umbrellas & colorful heart garlands “showering” a beautiful brunch table below
– Straws with gold glittered hearts + gold “Love” signs hanging on the back of each chair
– The cutest little tea pot cake pops + shortbread cookies with personalized “tea tags”
– Pastel colored tulle dessert table skirt + pastel tissue tassels on the welcome sign
– Stunning vintage garden inspired florals and lacy details carried throughout!

Charming & Lovely Ladies Garden Tea Party

We’ve been having a bit of a heat wave here in San Diego, so while I’m looking forward to cooler temperatures & bringing out my fall wardrobe, I’m thinking one last afternoon in the sun will be a wonderful send-off to summer, and this Lovely Ladies’ Garden Tea Party by Lisa Lundqvist of Sockerrus is the perfect inspiration! With a lush garden venue & too-gorgeous-to-eat sweets, what an amazing way to celebrate the lovely ladies in your life. This would also make for a truly stunning tea themed baby or bridal shower!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Pink sparkling wine served in gold decorated champagne glasses + beautiful vintage tea sets
– Powdered sugar dusted tea cookies, heart shaped tea sandwiches + chocolate dipped mini doughnuts
– Gold candy ‘sequin’ decorated cake with pink & gold sugar roses + flower topped pink cupcakes
– Hanging tissue honeycomb poms, gold painted bud vases & lovely neutral dresses on all of the guests
