Floral Garden Theme Bridal Shower

April 28, 2017

Great ideas for a floral garden theme bridal shower. Brunch shower food ideas.

I can't even believe my little sister is getting married in a few weeks! Is it even allowed for little sisters to get married?! Am I really old enough for her to get married?! What happened to the days when we were happily playing Barbies together?? Well folks, whether I'm in denial or not, the fact is, she's grown up and she's met the love of her life. I truly couldn't be happier for her! 💕

With the wedding right around the corner, we held her bridal shower last weekend. The other bridesmaids and I had so much fun planning! The weather crushed our dreams a little bit, but it ended up being absolutely beautiful despite the rain, and my sister had an amazing day!


Big thank you to Minted for providing product for this post!

I always picture my sister as kind of a whimsical person, so from the get go, I had a whimsical, floral, garden theme in mind. I also wanted to do it brunch style with a mimosa bar! Fun! On my search to narrow down exact colors and styles, I stumbled upon these absolutely stunning watercolor floral invitations from Minted. (If you're not familiar with Minted, they carry gorgeous stationary and artwork designed by individual artists. It's the perfect place for wedding invitations, holiday cards, home decor, and any other artsy needs you have!). I absolutely loved the design and the colors, so I let it inspire the entire shower decor palette.

We decided to use lots of pinks and greens with a few pops of peach and purple. We incorporated lots of faux flowers and greenery as well. We hoped for beautiful weather and booked a big white event tent for the day!

Once I received the matching invitations, thank you cards, and party favor tags, I was even more impressed by not only the beauty, but also the quality of the stationary. They really were stunning. Minted also offers free envelope addressing, which was such a gorgeous additional touch to the already beautiful invitations! I wish I had thought to address one to myself so I could share the envelope with you, but you can see an example in the invitation listing.

I used the beautiful favor tags to create these cute wildflower seed packet party favors. I'll share the tutorial with you next week!

After lots of planning, crafting, and cooking, the big day was finally here! We set up the tent the evening before (a beautiful day!!!), but sadly, it rained over night and was wet, cold, and grey in the morning. After much debate, we decided it was better to move the party indoors into my parents house rather than leaving our guests cold and with soggy shoes! (I'm sure they were very appreciative of having dry feet!) Despite being indoors and not quite what I had envisioned, it really turned out to be beautiful and was tons of fun! (Unfortunately, I did not come prepared with equipment for indoor photos, so I do apologize for the quality of these photos, but you get the idea! 😬 )

Alright, ready to see all of the details? Here we go...

Floral Bridal Shower

One of the bridesmaids created these beautiful champagne flutes for my sister and the bridal party. They were perfect for our mimosas (or mocktails in my case 😉 ...counting down the days until I can enjoy a mimosa!)

For the mimosa bar, we provided orange juice, cranberry juice, pineapple juice, and some frozen fruit. And of course, plenty of champagne! We found some cute plastic floral wine glasses at the Dollar Store that were perfect for guests!

We covered the brunch buffet tables in peach table cloths, and I designed some floral signs using clipart I purchased on Creative Market to put in frames on the tables. We used faux florals wherever we could (Tip: Keep an eye on the weekly ad pages of Hobby Lobby and Michaels. They often run 50% off on florals!)

For our brunch foods, we came up with as many mini, bite sized ideas as we could! We made mini yogurt parfaits in individual cups, mini pancakes, mini bagels, mini quiches, and mini muffins, to name a few.

Isn't mini just so cute and fun?!?! The mini pancakes turned out to be one of my absolute faves. Delicious and pretty!

We served everything on pretty platters and cake plates.

Lemonade for those who didn't want mimosas!

For the bride's seat of honor, we used a garden lattice as a backdrop. I hung a floral garland from it and had a pretty floral sign printed. That floral wreath to the right was actually intended to be a floral chandelier I made for the tent, buttttt when it rains, why not repurpose things?!

I loved the idea of letting guests address envelopes to themselves for thank you cards to make things a little easier for the bride, so we set up a station just for that!

And of course a table for the favors near the front door! (Eeek, sorry about the scary bright flash!)
