Hi all! As many of you know, I’ve been away from blogging these past months while I planned my bridal shower and wedding. I am happy to say that it all came together so well and I can’t wait to share photographs!
Today, I am starting with my vintage inspired Bridal Shower from October. It was a fun day and yes, I did most of the planning and decor myself. It’s in my blood, so no ‘surprise’ Bridal Shower for me!
My theme was Vintage French Cafe Chic, complete with Edith Piaf as my soundtrack. I had a great amount of help from my best friend Lisa (who even baked the cake) and my Mother who helped select William Hallet Bar & Bistro as the location. The venue itself was an inspiration with damask fabric wallpaper in the perfect shade of golden yellow.
You’ll find links to many products that helped bring the event to life and the other half of the items were Estate Sale finds! Side note: I was partially off “photographer” duty that day, so most of the photos below are by my lovely friend at Nicole Renee Photography!
Photo 2: The perfect shade of grey striped straws are from beve! paper straws. The “guess how many jelly beans” game had some leftovers for guests to snack on – Jelly Belly’s three flavors: Birthday Cake Remix, Coconut and A&W Creme soda. My favors from Beaucoup were housed in the perfect mini muslin bags by Jennifer’s Cookies.
Photo 4: The tulle puffs by Shanz Party Decorations looked so cute paired with a trio of vintage signs I found at The Screen Porch. The flower arrangements I created myself with assorted vintage mason jars filled with off-white and blush spray roses, baby’s breath and craspedia. Every table had a different vintage doily under the centerpiece.
Photo 5: My Aunt treated me to gourmet sugar cubes by Chambre De Sucre. The kids were eating them like candy because they were so pretty!
Photo 7: Another fun shower game was ‘guess my age’! The photos were stored in mason jars and labeled with tags I created with my Cavallini & Co. Rubber Stamp set.

It was a great day. I can’t thank my friends and family enough for their love and support!
