A Bridal Luncheon

I am so excited to be bringing you this soiree today.  

Working with Laura on the invite to my soon-to-be daughter in law’s bridal luncheon was so much fun.  Laura told me she wanted to make this extra special. I gave her some ideas of what I was thinking in my scattered brain. She came up with this!

PERFECT in every way.  

Theme:  “Having A Ball Since 2009”

Color Scheme:  Light Pink, Blush, Gold and Burlap

I was so excited for the day to finally come.  It was a small affair with only 7 of us. (we have a small family)   We shared funny stories, tips for a happy marriage and swooned over her personal gifts from everyone.

I was so happy with how everything turned out.   From the invites to the cookies – all was perfect for this special lunch.

 Laura also surprised me with this burlap hand written BRIDE banner.  It was the extra touch needed.  The bride to be even took it home to hang it in her bridal suite for the wedding weekend!

  1. Your bridal shower arrangements are simply fabulous. Must say you really did a great job in doing all arrangements. I too arranged my sister’s bridal shower at one of New York wedding venues. Took help of my friends to make her day special.
