When it comes to bridal showers, I love it when they are executed with style and elegance and this butterfly bridal shower was right on target. I like to pick a theme and run with it — showing taste and restraint, of course. Something I like in particular about this shower was the absence of hokey games replaced by more contemporary ideas like “Guess the Spice?” and the Make a Bouquet Contest.
I hope you enjoy these ideas as much as I did and be sure to stay tuned next week to see Sandra’s over-the-top wedding!
Sandra Thomasian has had an obsession with butterflies since she was a little girl, so when she got engaged and the time came for her shower it only made sense to have a butterfly-themed bridal shower. Sandra’s sister (the girl in the fabulous lavender dress) threw it for her and from the butterfly arch to the table décor, cake, the floating installation in the pool, the wrapping on the presents, the butterfly place cards that perched on the mimosas, and more, everything had to follow the butterfly theme. “What made my event so special was the attention to detail and the vibrant colors,” says Sandra.
