Love the heart shaped plates that coordinate perfectly with the Sweethearts candy and tea candle mason jars on this table above.

The black and white chevron background of this tiered table set up really make the red hearts pop! Perfect for a bridal shower or bachelorette party too! Visit my shop if you need some heart cupcake toppers.

This table set up is perfect for using your small tinsel Christmas trees- just leave them out after the holiday and decorate them with your own diy heart ornaments for Valentine’s Day. Super easy!

This very simple table setup utilizes an easy to make chain garland in the center and floating above are some heart shaped balloons

Vintage Tea Party Bridal Shower

Bridal Shower In Vintage Tea Party Theme

If you are planning a bridal shower in the near future- I have the perfect shower theme to inspire you.  The vintage tea party theme is trending right now for bridal showers.  It’s classic and sophisticated.  Plus all the ladies can dress up and you can encourage all the guests to wear a big hat for the shower. Make it a true soiree with requested dress attire – you could even provide a box of vintage found hats for the guests to wear.  Today, I am featuring some amazing tea party tablescapes.

This is a fairly easy bridal shower theme to put together.  To keep it under budget- ask around to see if you can borrow a family member’s vintage china or visit a thrift store and buy a mash up of old tea cups and saucers.  Yep, a mix and match of china is absolutely fine for this set up and would even look stunning. Add in some vintage mason jars and vintage or new decorative tea pots for your flower vases.

To get the look of the vintage tea party you will want plenty of flowers and most set ups feature fresh roses in light pink and white and accents of baby’s breath.

Although, you can still pull off the look with silk flowers as well.  This shower above features silks glued around a painted decorative wood picture frame and it looks just as beautiful as fresh flowers.  Add in some elements of gold with gold candlesticks or gold plated utensils and of course don’t forget to drape pearls here and there.

Lace is a must for this theme. Use it as bunting, for your tablecloth and even draped it across frames and as a table backdrop. If you can’t find vintage lace linens- there is no shortage of new table linens in lacy patterns and designs – you can even use curtains in sheer lace fabric.  Paper doilies on all your plates will look so shabby chic too.  Most tea parties feature a sweets table but I recommend offering some healthy options too- such as strawberries and raspberries.

Ask the bride for some old photos of herself and the groom, either growing up as kids or the two of them together, and use them at the event.  Black and white is best (color photos can be professionally transitioned to black and white- or you can even photocopy color photos in black and white) and they can be added to picture frames or even hang them up as a bunting.

One last tip for the shower- bring in a bit of violet color in your flowers or shower decor.  This year’s color pick by Pantone is Ultra Violet and the tea party theme is perfect for adding in this shade of color. Be sure to spend some time asking the bride about her likes and dislikes for food and decor as well.  Add in a personal touch and surprise her.  Maybe she loves daisies or strawberry shortcake and would love that you remembered this and included it at her shower.

Come back next week to the The Party Fetti website – I will be featuring big balloons for weddings and for amazing photo shoot ideas!

Party Decorating Ideas

A New Year & New Party Inspiration!

 Christmas has been packed away and the kids are back in school.  It’s a new year and it’s time for party planning for 2018, organizing the home, and crafting new projects to keep you busy during the cold weather hibernation and to keep the winter blues away.  Today, I’m back to sharing some amazing party setups, like the one above- and by the way- all fans are on SALE in my party shop, The Party Fetti ShopHERE.

Time to get you thinking about birthdays in 2018 (yep, its a good idea to start planning now) – even if those birthdays are months away.

This January, I will help motivate you to organize several areas of your home and share some diy craft tutorials like this one –

Yay! Who could not love making a little vintage thrift store figure into a fabulous party prop. This would look great on the party table at a little girl’s birthday or in a girl’s bedroom.  There is not much to this crafting project –  grab your hot glue gun and embellish your vintage figurine with a paper made mini party hat and pinwheel, add some fringe crepe paper, a ribbon bow, and top it off with a flower and pom pom.  So adorable! I picked up several different vintage figurines at my local thrift store and I can’t wait to start decorating them to sell as room decor and party props in my Etsy shops.

Since all hanging fans are on sale in my shop right now – I thought I would inspire you with several party table backdrops created with fans.  They are the easiest way to decorate at a party and make a big statement.

A mix of pinks and gold would be perfect for this coming Valentine’s Day celebration.

How about flower themed decor for a celebration in spring like a first communion, a baptism, baby shower, bridal shower or your Easter brunch.

Fall Boho Bridal Shower

FALL BOHEMIAN BRIDAL SHOWER

Although the autumn weather is getting crisp, its not too late to host an outdoor gathering, as long as you still have mild temperatures in your area.  Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful fall colors and mild weather while the sun is still shining and before we all have to head indoors for the colder weather coming soon.

Whatever theme you are planning for your soon to be married friend’s bridal shower, be sure to know her taste and style.  A good indicator of this can be found in her home decor or maybe you were old college room mates – so her dorm decor would be a good direction to play off of for helping to plan the bridal shower.  Also, determine her favorite colors and fashion style.  Remember, the bridal shower should be stress free and a celebration of her – so don’t approach the engaged friend with everything about the up coming shower.  Ask basic questions about her dream wedding and favorite colors, without her feeling as though she is having to plan the event for you.

Be sure to stop by the I DO WEDDING & BRIDAL DESIGNS shop for all your bridal shower decorations and to start planning your bridal shower!

This outdoor bridal shower features a soft pastel color scheme mixed with traditional autumn colors or orange, maroon, and tan.  The soft pink and lavender rose style flowers play off the fall colors and pumpkins for a stunning mix of colors.

Adding in a few BOHO or bohemian elements, such as the dream catcher and cattle skull adds to the unusual theme, yet this still works for stylish trendy bridal shower and all these elements compliment the outdoor setting.

A backdrop or background, such as this jute rope curtain, is always a great starting place for planning any celebration.  Once you have determined this main focal point for the event – all other elements for the shower can begin to compliment the backdrop and build off of it.  This backdrop featured above is perfect for an outdoor event because it divides the seating and food serving area, yet still allows for the guests to fully appreciate the outdoor surroundings since it is essentially transparent.

Food is as important as the bridal shower decorations.  Feature your bride’s favorite food- maybe it is cake, pie, cupcakes or cookies.  Or maybe she does not even have a sweet tooth?  There is no rule that sweets must be served at a bridal shower.  Be creative and find out the food she loves and just to be on the safe side, find out what she does not like to eat as well.

Add an element of light, fire, or candlelight too.  If it is still warm for your outdoor shower, that inevitable means bugs- so consider placing citronella candles around the outdoor area and keep your food covered until ready to serve.

These food tents are the perfect way to manage outdoor events – [easyazon_link identifier=”B073GKHVXR” locale=”US” tag=”ymazonffiliac-20″]FOOD TENTS[/easyazon_link]

Include some natural elements that coordinate to your theme, such as fresh flowers, or for this featured fall baby shower, large and small pumpkins and gourds are tucked in behind the signage and elsewhere to pull in the fall colors and accents from nature.

Finally, make serving the food easy and placed all in one area, like this rolling food cart that is easy to set up inside and then simply roll it outdoors.  Rather than making many trips in and out to bring the food out, putting it all on a cart can make for fewer trips.  Plus, its a trendy and stylish set up, as bar carts are now so affordable, such as this – [easyazon_link identifier=”B01KBKQHRS” locale=”US” tag=”ymazonffiliac-20″]BAR CART[/easyazon_link] that can be ordered online.

I hope these bridal shower tips were helpful and this outdoor BOHO fall themed bridal shower have inspired you to start planning your upcoming celebration of marriage.
