How to Throw a Luxe Bridal Shower

A few weeks ago, my bridesmaids threw me the most luxe and dreamy bridal shower. After giving them my mood board (enter bridezilla mode) and what I had envisioned, they planned, organized, and executed it in such a lovely way, I couldn't ask for a more beautiful set-up.  

Planning isn't always a breeze, but to make things a bit easier, you really only need a few elements to create that gorgeous space. It's all in the details and highlighting an area or two. Take a peek at the special details from the party ahead and use these quick tips if you're planning a soiree anytime soon. :)

1. HIGH SHINE BALLOONS

The metallic effect of gold or silver has a way of lifting the scene.  In a balloon, it comes off playful, cheerful, and so fun. Place them against a clean wall to create a backdrop. Picture opportunity? I think so.

2. LUXE TABLESCAPE

I fell in love with these modern paper plates (yes, paper!!) from Harlow and Grey.  The subtle touch of gold combined with the prettiest marble print made it feel so luxe and elevated the whole table. You'll hate tossing away these pretty paper plates, but will love knowing you won't be doing the dishes. They really do make entertaining stylish and easy.

There are so many more high style designs I absolutely adore from their site. You can get 15% off their modern party goods by using HGXPP15 at checkout here

3. A BIT OF BUBBLY

Pop. Fizz. Clink. It's not a celebration without champagne. A bit of bubbly always makes the space look super fancy. Line the glasses up to fill the area and create a welcoming atmosphere.

4. FRESH FLORALS

These lovely centerpieces were beautifully put together by Mission de Flores. Flowers always bring life to a room and a bouquet here and there balances everything else you have going on. Since we didn't want the flowers to go to waste, towards the end of the party, each guest created their own little arrangement to take home with them. I'm all about repurposing and this was a great DIY party favor all the guests enjoyed.
