Shades of Green Bridal Shower Ideas

Recently I hosted a casual bridal shower luncheon for my future sister-in-law who’s a real sweetie with the kindest heart. She loves the color green and that was enough to get my creative juices flowing!  Here are a few images from the event…

bridal+shower+invitation

The invitation sets the mood for a party. I always recommend doing it the old fashion way too… sending a printed invite in the mail. In this digital day and age, receiving an invite in the mail is just more special.  The sweet invitations with the brides’s monogram framed in a leafy wreath were from Minted.

Because the event was casual, we served lunch buffet style. The table was covered in a crisp white table cloth and shades of green ribbon in varying widths ran down the middle to create the table-runner  .

Ranunculus and green Hypericum berry flowersFresh flowers are always a must for an bridal shower event. Providing contrast and a burst of vivid color, I selected fuchsia ranunculus for the centerpieces. The ranunuculus were paired with green hypericum berry flowers and place in a trio of grass green ceramic vases.

For more visual interest,  a pair of forest green boxwood balls on top of mini silver urns were placed between the floral arrangements.

I actually made these myself. I downloaded the italic monograms here, cut them out on heavy card stock and added glitter. Well, so much glitter I ran out on the third letter and my hubby was nice enough to run to Michael’s the morning of the party for more glitter. Isn’t that sweet? I have the best hubby.

I was too busy being a hostess to snap a shot of the yummy salads we shared, but did manage to capture an image of the beautiful desserts. I think having a variety of mini cakes like this is so fun! We all loved the XOXO detail on the side of the mini cheesecake pictured above.

No guest should go away without a little gift.  To celebrate my sister-in-law joining the Bisbee family soon, we selected these beautifully packaged organic worker bee balms to remember the afternoon.  It’s a good think my further sister-in-law like bees… it would be hard to become a Bisbee if not!

Happy day!

    Loved this table – the ribbon accent is something I am totally stealing FYI – texture and color :)
