Real Events: Julia's Bridal Shower

About a week and a half ago I had the honor of throwing my best friend in the entire world a bridal shower. The day went off without a hitch...well except for the major wind storm that took place. The theme we decided to go with was a rooftop deck party with a touch of "Sex and the City". We used three main colors that consisted of cream, black and hot pink.

We used white curtain panels that we dyed pink to hang as an entrance to the beautiful deck covered with vines. Globe lights were hung throughout to give a touch of soft light (I love globe lights and plan to use them on a deck of my own one day).

We had planned to use floating candles in the pool that would have been surrounded by candlesticks in wine bottles around the pool to make the pool area glow in the dark...however the wind prevented that idea so we moved inside.  One thing that cannot be controlled-WEATHER!

Paper lanterns were used near the bar and on the deck to add an area of interest and color.

One of the most fun ideas was the accessories that we used as favors for the party. We handed them out to each guests to wear during the shower and then to take home as gifts. There are some wonderful, inexpensive ideas such as these that you could use any day to jazz up any outfit.

Tell us about a shower that you planned. I would love to hear some of your favorite decor themes or ideas that you have planned or seen at an event that you attended.

See you swoon,
