The Dos and Don'ts of Bridal Shower Arrangements
Do Add Bold Colors
Pair softer pastels with cheerful accent colors to create a feminine yet distinctive centerpiece. Flowers such as peonies, roses, and sweetpea are go-to varieties when creating an arrangement that's truly centerpiece worthy. Place your bold florals of differing heights to create a stunning statement piece that will surely impress guests.
Don't Be Afraid To Go Girly
We never shy away from all pink when it comes to bridal showers. Mixing different flower varieties in the same pink hue will give your centerpieces texture while staying within a consistent (and gorgeous!) theme.
Do Double Up
If the bridal shower is on the smaller side, feel free to use your table arrangements as party favors for your guests. This is a sweet and intimate way to give your bride and her guests a take-away from such a memorable event.
Don't Be Matchy-Matchy
Mix and match patterns and colors to spice up a fun and festive bridal shower. Elevate the bridal shower centerpieces and tablescape by incorporating a variety of colors and patterns throughout. Neutral linens will pair well with colorful florals such as ranunculus and tulips. Patterned china adds a whimsical and romantic touch to your tablescape.
Do Think White
White, the classic wedding dress color, can also take center stage for a bridal shower soiree. White monochromatic tablescapes are classy and timeless. Pair a cascading white orchid centerpiece with complementary table linens and flatware for a traditional and elegant shower.
Don't Shy Away From Breaking Tradition
Channel the look of a table runner by using florals to create an amazing statement focal point. Cluster arrangements, bud vases, and a variety of votives in the center of a lengthy table to achieve this on-trend look. Fresh and fun elements are key to a spring bridal shower.
