Bridal Luncheon Ideas: Showered in Color
Inspired by the garden, Editor-at-Large Kimberly Schlegel Whitman planned a vibrant bridal luncheon bursting with spring blooms and clever ideas for her sister, Kari Schlegel Kloewer. Here, four tips to enhance your next bridal luncheon
Create Vibrant Centerpieces
Inspired by the hues of peonies, daffodils, hyacinths, and ranunculus, Kim created a palette of pink, yellow, blue, and orange,
punctuated by lush centerpieces and new tablecloths made of ikat fabrics. A setting of staggered round tables maximized space
and encouraged lots of guest interaction. "Even with a big group, you always want it to feel intimate and personal," says
Kim. To dress the tables, Kim combined three different place settings of family china and her own monogrammed napkins and
flatware. The result was a cheerful luncheon focused on friends and family.
