So, to continue our stylized tablescape series (photos by aka photographs), we have something bright and happy in store for you today: The Citrus Burst Bridal Shower shoot!! We wanted to do something a little different from our wedding ideas, since we are a full service event company. This set up was done with vibrant pinks and yellows, for that happy summer feeling. We also did it outdoors to capture everything wonderful about summer.
There were cupcakes and candies for sweet snacking. The cupcakes were made by Hallie of Leonard Events and were just as delicious as they were pretty!
We stuck with simple ideas for the decor. We used a pink to yellow ombre tablecloth for the buffet table, and wide round vases filled with fresh lemons and topped with bright pink flowers as the centerpiece. It made for a gorgeous contrast of color, and was super simple to put together!! SEE Hint: Things don’t have to be complicated to be beautiful!
We made pitchers of fresh lemonade for some respite from the heat, and lemon drop martinis for those who like a little more kick in their refreshment! Each lemon drop martini was garnished with a Lemon Drop candy to snack on later.
Hallie, who also modeled for this shoot, enjoyed her drinks in the shade.
And finally, everyone got a sweet pink lollipop to enjoy on their way home:
All in all, this shoot was a blast to brainstorm and set up! The bright colors instantly made us think of summer, and all the good memories of being outside and enjoying time with friends.
Bridal showers don’t need to be a stressful situation. With a little creativity, you can make a bright, fun event that all the women will enjoy. SEE Hint: Not everything needs to be a sophisticated, sit down dinner. Have a little fun and be casual when the situation arises
We hope you enjoyed this peek, and all the rest!
