Last month I had the opportunity to head to Ohio to assist with a vintage themed bridal shower. This is one of my favorite events I’ve done! It might be that I got to do this with my sister and her Ohio family that added that extra awesomeness to the event. The bride-to-be is such a sweetheart and my sister happened to be the maid of honor, a stunning shower was required!
Along with my sister and her Ohio “mom” we set up a beautiful display under a tent in the front yard. We were so lucky to have access to tons of antique and vintage items, they literally were all around us thanks to my sister and her Ohio mom being collectors.
The bride isn’t a big fan of pink so my sister went with blue and green with a few patterns, including quatrefoil. Sandy of Firefly Confections created the perfect cookie, each guest was welcomed by a blue and white quatrefoil cookie at their place setting. I picked flowers from my sisters yard and created 3 floral arrangements for the tables, how cool is that!?!. It was so much fun decorating these tables, there was no specific rules, we simply made sure each table had a slightly different look.
My sister and Kim (her Ohio mom) picked out all the food options, and they did a great job! The food looked amazing and the taste was great too. Everyone loved the veggies & dip containers and the fruit looked so cheerful. Just a few ideas picked up via Pinterest, wink wink. I fell in love with the serving dishes and of course there was vintage suitcases in use.
Decor was not neglected when it came to food, everything tied together perfectly. We were thrilled to work alongside Kori of Paper & Pigtails. The food tent cards were adorable, we used a mixture of yellow and purple to add more pops of color.
The gorgeous cake was created by Dorothy Lane Market and it had different flavors for each tier. My sister did an amazing job picking out the style of the cake, it was the center of attention. The lemon filling was to die for!
This centerpiece was created by Kim and I love the brooch embellishments she added. It was the focal point for the gift table and the bride also wanted it to be a part of her wedding day. The wishes for the bride-to-be were from Eat Drink Chic. We arranged them on wood panels with clothespins and ribbon, such a great display.
The banner was another item created by Paper & Pigtails and we added vintage brooches to the banner as well. My sister created the awesome fabric backdrop for a photo booth area. This backdrop made its way back with me to Florida. The party planners had to take a photo together, of course.
It was an amazing & fun event and I am thrilled I was asked to be a part of it. I can’t wait for another trip to Ohio and I’m sure a celebration of some sorts will be arranged.
