A couple of weeks ago myself and another bridesmaid, Sasha, planned a perfect bridal shower brunch for our very own, Heather Scherie! Our great friend and go-to photographer, Wynne, happened to bring her camera and took some beautiful photos of the party and many of the details, so we have no choice but to share the prettiness with you! It was a simple party to plan, especially when you're not doing it alone! Sasha took care the food prep while I handled the design and decor. With a couple easy DIYs and a trip to the wholesale flower market where we selected in-season blooms, like peonies and mums, we were able to create inexpensive, pretty and whimsical tablescapes and vignettes. Also, thank you to Target's Spritz party decoration line for having plates, napkins, straws and other accents that tied in with the invitation!
It all started with the invitation that perfectly matches the bride's personality - we chose a custom instant download invitation from Etsy which made it quick and easy to print and mail out.
One of the games we played was "How well do you know your groom?" One of my bridesmaids made it for me and it's something I will have forever and knew Heather would love it just as much. I made laminated question and answer cards that we read off to her and she had to guess his answers. It made for a lot of laughs and story telling...also some tears as the last note card we had Paul share why he was so excited to marry Heather. You can see the DIY game here!
If anyone knows Heather Scherie well you may know about her slight obsession with Jonathan Adler pottery. Sasha and I found this cute JA bird pitcher/vase and filled it with extra flowers. It added to the decor for the party but she got to take it home with her as her shower gift. She loved it!
We hope you enjoyed these photos and inspires you for your next party or get together! And Heather, I hope you're enjoying Thailand with your new husband!
