How to Host a Bridal Brunch Slideshow
February 8, 2013
Where it all began...
... a color scheme! This is the palette for my wedding and alas, set the scene for the bridal brunch.
Send the Invites
I designed these with the color scheme in mind at Wedding Paper Divas and sent them on their way to my seven bridesmaids.
Warm Hues, Happy Hearts
New York City event designer and florist Celadon and Celery took my color palette and created a stunning and vibrant centerpiece filled with peonies, ranunculus, and various bright blooms.
Clean tones throughout, these boxes wer're created with thought in mind.
To represent the adventures of my bachelorette bash, Rolling Pin Productions created corsets and high heels, attire fit for a ladies night on the town.
Shades of Pink
To represent the the attire of the bridesmaids dresses, Deborah Lippmann's various shades of pink and nude scattered the boxes as well. Shades like Modern Love, Candy Shop, Naked, I’m not Innocent, and Careless Whisper set the tone for the muted palette of the attire.
Lastly, to represent the wedding cake, Baked by Melissa's trio of Wedding Cake cupcakes we're wrapped up in a feminine bridal bow.
For the Rose Lovers
MARTINI Rosé scattered boxes in addition to Chandon.
Pop the Question
After all is said and done, it all comes down to the big question: "Will you be my maid of honor? My bridesmaid?"
Wrapping Is Everything
Embracing my inner DIY, I wrapped each box with Paper Presentation's gorgeous gold prints and tied it together with a tulle bow.
Once we were graced with a beautiful centerpiece, we paired it with warm-toned soy candles from Archipelago.
To create the ultimate bar car, we paired Ruffino Prosecco with orange juice and both peach and pear nectar for pairings.
No tea party is a tea party without French macarons. We took it to the next level and had Macaron Cafe's stunning glittered selection to grace our dessert table.
With all of the elements blended together cohesively, the table was set, the food was served, and guests were pleasantly surprised.
