Summer Showers

I’ve recently taken part in helping to host two different bridal showers for two of my closest friends. One was a carefree backyard shower with a preppy pineapple twist. The other was a more modern and sophisticated soiree. While I had more of a planning hand in the later shower, both were ideal for the two different brides. I find there is something so personal about planning showers. You can really capture the bride in small and thoughtful details. I think it shows a great display of love that a registry gift can’t quite capture. Cheers to #WynneTwoBleComeOne and#AlaviYouForever XO

The bride’s nickname is Ble Ble, so my friend had balloons made to keep things festive. Although the wind wouldn’t let them stay straight.

Grange Hall was the ideal spot for this bride. If you are in the Dallas area, you must come for lunch, or to see their beautiful gift store. Modern Bridal Shower by The Potted Boxwood 5

The florist is very creative here at Grange Hall. I knew I wanted to contrast of all white flowers and to play off of the marble inspired plates that they use. You would never know that those glass vases are painted on the outside. So chic!  Modern Bridal Shower by The Potted Boxwood 4

The flowers seemed endless…

Alli K Design did an overwhelmingly fantastic job with the place cards. Her modern calligraphy is used from something as small as this, to something as important as wedding invitations.  It fits the atmosphere beautifully. Modern Bridal Shower by The Potted Boxwood 8

The piéce de résistance….Frosted Art Bakery captured my vision in the most spectacular way. They even took the monogram of the napkin and used it as the topper for the cake. It was just as delicious as it was beautiful. Grange Hall added the flowers for a bridal touch.  Modern Bridal Shower by The Potted Boxwood 10

LB Originals did such an incredible job helping me pick a more modern and unique monogram for my very Jan Showers inspired bride. I decided to go with a dark grey and white color pattern to compliment the marble.

The Mother of The Bride made very cool terrariums with a very real looking fake orchid and moss. Such a unique and thoughtful gift. If interested in any of her work, contact me and I can put you in touch.   Modern Bridal Shower by The Potted Boxwood 13

I thought it was so fun how their flatware had an iridescent vibe.
