A few months ago the national company and blog, Kate Aspen, shared some perfect favor decor with me to help spoil our little Ali of Alleycakes Bakery during her Champagne inspired Bridal & Lingerie Shower!

Organizing a bridal shower can seem like a daunting task, but there are easy ways to host a stylish shower with details the bride will love. Adair Currie of Dairing Events in collaboration with Liz Stewart Floral Designs and Soulshine Rentals designed a chic champagne brunch bridal shower with lovely feminine touches of pink and gold. We share a few pointers from the fabulous event that will help with planning!
Choosing a Special Venue
It’s important to find a venue in advance to secure either an intimate space for a small group or a larger venue for a bigger group of guests. Blue Jay, an event venue in Jacksonville Beach, Florida, was the ideal location just a few blocks from the beach.
Invite the Bride’s Besties
There’s nothing like a party with your gal pals! If the party is a surprise, enlist one of the bride’s best friends or close family to help with the guest list and preparation.
Share Glittery Favors
Add some shimmer to a table with a pretty favor display. These gold glitter favor boxes are the right size for a small gift for guests, such as macaroons or candies.
Have a help yourself Champagne & Mimosa Bar
It’s not brunch without champagne! Set up a self-serve champagne cocktail bar where guests can mix up their own fruity concoctions.
Give your guests a variety of options to create a tasty cocktail, and even display a sign with simple recipes as inspiration. Mix champagne, orange juice, cranberry juice and lemon zest for a refreshing Sicilian Sunset. For a non-alcoholic drink, stir fresh juices with ONLI sparkling water flavors like Hibiscus Pomegranate Strawberry or Grapefruit Pomelo Peach.
Party Planning Tip: Set one champagne bottle aside on the table just for guests to leave special wishes for the bride!
Bite Size Dessert Display
Dress up a dessert table with a cute DIY backdrop. Glue silk flowers to heavy poster board in the shape of a fun design or saying. This floral “Oh La La” design is a darling focal point.
Use a stylish gold frame to serve as a place card setting and allow guests to save their favor for a favorite photo of their own.
A customized cookie with the couple’s initials is another sweet favor guests can take home.
Lite Bites that satisfy all taste buds!
Keep the food simple for a bridal brunch. Croissant sandwiches, fruit and yogurt parfaits or veggies with dip are effortless options to keep guests full and happy.
