A Kitchen Inspired Bridal Shower

posted in: Entertaining and Events | 10

Hi Folks!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending a bridal shower a friend of mine hosted for a friend of hers. She invited me to come help set up and add a couple of extra hands.  My friend Shirley is another creative lady and she had quite a few unique ideas up her sleeve when decorating for the event.

I thought I’d share some of the photos I took that day:)

This party had a kitchen inspired theme and Shirley added a lot of  quirky and fun decorating ideas to it. The table was set with bamboo trays  filled with a charger, lace trimmed napkins,napkin ring, scented candle and neat centerpiece made out of a flower pot and kitchen utensils as the “flowers” at each place setting. I really got a kick out of them. How neat is that?!!!!kitche shower place settingWe tied vintage aprons to the backs of the chairs for added whimsy.

I thought this was a very neat idea.

The tables were set up in front of huge windows overlooking the water. This is the view….

Isn’t it “To Die For”????!!! I could sit for hours on that porch sipping tea or coffee dreaming the day away.

decorated buffet

The buffet was decorated with lovely plastic gift boxes that lit up, tea light candles and pictures of the bride and groom in tiny frames. This made such a pretty display when everything was lit.

She put out quite a spread of food, enough to feed an army. This was the dessert table. Cute huh? I made the purple cupcakes. Everything was delicious!

Here is a side view shot of the wacky “wishing well” Shirley came up with. She created it out of a laundry basket, mop and broom, and bucket. She adorned it with sponges, spoons, and a bunch of household items. I think its just a HOOT!

    I wish I could have attended this FUN party……how cute are those aprons tied on the back of the chairs! I must share this with you…….I married 47 years ago and one of my mom’s friends gave me a kitchen shower….she had each guest sign a pretty yellow apron with their normal signature. She told me that she would bring it to me later….and when she did, I was shocked. She had embroidered each lady’s name in a deeper shade of yellow. I still have the apron and treasure it as it always brings back memories of a lot of ladies who are no longer on our earth.
