Inspiration board: a vintage garden bridal shower


I created this inspiration board for my friend Kristin's upcoming vintage/garden bridal shower. Kristin has 9 bridesmaids in her wedding and we are all working together to throw her an amazing shower. I can't wait!

Details:

- Flowers, flowers and more flowers: St. Paul and Minneapolis have awesome farmer's markets in the summer months with gorgeous and affordable wild flowers. We will likely use mason jars as vases.

- Vintage/floral tea cups and lacey tablecloths to incorporate into the decor

- Brunch food: quiche, mixed greens, scones, baguette and cheese, fruit, and other light bites

- Brunch cockatils: mimosas, bellinis and bloody mary's

- Dessert: cupcakes

Do you have any ideas that would be great for a vintage/garden bridal shower? I'd love to hear them!

  1. I would say some bird and baby breath garland (though I am obsessed with birds lol) and lace overlay on table clothes

  4. It it's indoors, I love using delicate vintage teacups as candle holders. I plan to do this for a mother's day brunch I am hosting in a couple of weeks. I just set a tealight candle in the bottom and it is beautiful!

  6. Jenna, I went to a similar themed bridal shower and they used a variety of teapots for the vases. They used a variety of vintage and new teapots that they had or got for cheap at TJ Maxx. Just an idea. It was really really pretty
