Brunch & Bubbles: A New Take on a Bridal Shower at Southern Season
At a traditional bridal shower, guests come with gift in hand off a registry already created by the bride. But for this darling “Brunch & Bubbly” shower, Kristen invited her ladies to come to Weathervane to enjoy an amazing meal, and then help her choose her favorite items from Southern Season for her registry!
C and D Events styled a perfectly preppy event for the celebration with just the right amount of whimsy and glamour. Rentals from American Party Rentals were selected to match the bride’s fun-loving personality and swank style. A dashing royal blue linen was topped with a mod pink and grey runner, and chic gold flatware was paired with clean and modern table settings for their delectable brunch.
A menu by the Weathervane included perfectly charred salmon atop southern succotash and an elegant twist on classic shrimp cocktail. Sweet treats were abundant, with a decadent naked cake and a magnificent dessert bar of macaroons, cake pops, cupcakes and more from Southern Season.
Southern Season also provided the magnificent pops of color in the form of lush flowers decorating the tables and chairs. Blooming peonies were radiant in shades of white, blush, fuchsia and deep red. Single flowers were placed inside luxe gold geometric terrariums, alongside gilded pears on the tabletop.
Darling signage mirrored the beautiful invitation suite by PaperBuzz with a special touch by All She Wrote Notes. The invitation included a card for guests to write their favorite tried and true recipe or household tip for the soon to be Mrs., and hand painted wooded spoons gave them a chance to offer their very best marriage advice as a precious keepsake.
After brunch, the ladies explored the Southern Season store to find all of the perfect gifts that the bride needed to turn her house into a home, as she starts her new life with her husband to be!
