How about a pretty, preppy bridal shower for your Monday! Michelle Warren sent over these lovely photos…
Lisa Witt, one of the shower hostesses, kindly shared some of the details from the day: The bride was using pale pink and pale green in her wedding, so the idea was to punch it up a bit for the shower with chartreuse green and rose petal pink.
All of the papers were preppy and sweet, “Just like the bride,” says Lisa. Coordinating pink and chartreuse wrapping paper and ribbons from Paper Source were used throughout.
Guests enjoyed a yummy display from Enjoy Cupcakes. Flavors included: Mojito with green sugared lime zest, Strawberries and Cream, and Chocolate with Fudge Filling.
Flowers were a mix of tulips and orchids from the local farmer’s market, as well as kale, bells of Ireland and various stock flowers from Ocean View Flowers in Lompoc.
Lunch included artichoke bruschetta, orzo arugula salad with feta and grape tomatoes, chicken salad with pecans and cranberries, and butter lettuce salad with green goddess dressing. Guests could sip on pink lemonade, sangria, white wine, and citrus water. And of course there were sweets! Cupcakes (see above), miniature meringues, miniature pink and green macarons, and assorted candies.
