This season tends to be the time of bridal showers. And although we’ve all been to our fair share of “memorable” parties complete with games that involve wrapping yourself in toilet paper wedding dresses, my favorite showers are those that keep the design simple and the entertainment tasteful. Let’s face it, none of us really enjoy those bridal games unless we’ve had a few glasses of bubbly. Instead, I personally love to meet new friends and learn more about the bride and groom. Surely, I am not the only one?
To create a gorgeous table, stick with a neutral palette and let everyone croon over a stunning cake. (And for the record, a bridal shower should always include a cake, not individual cupcakes.) And if your budget won’t allow a nice bottle of champagne, try a blush variety as these tend to be sweet and enjoyed by most. Be sure to add a raspberry inside the glass to add some texture and color, and practice a complimentary, appropriate (and short) toast to the bride-to-be.
As my mother always told me, “be elegant, not elaborate.”
