YOU ARE INVITED
Our overflowing mailboxes confirm it: bridal shower season is here. We know that planning and decorating one can be totally daunting, so we asked a few of our blogger friends—who are experts at party-throwing—to each put together a shower and some tips so we can work on other things, like what type of champagne to serve…
COLOR ME PINK
From THE HOUSE THAT LARS BUILT
I envisioned… A fun and whimsical event where the ladies can get dressed up while enjoying the excitement of being young and in love.
Standout decoration: The balloon installation! It was shaped organically and the balloons were added individually in various sizes and colors (tutorial coming soon to my blog).
Favorite product? The flamingos! They're beautifully made and oh-so quirky.
Planning tip: Don't take it too seriously. Try something you would never do at a more serious event.

I envisioned… Something fun, eclectic, and bohemian.
Achieve the look: Think in terms of texture. Linens, rugs, and textiles are a great way to add dimension as well as pops of color.
Favorite product: I love the rustic charm and versatility of the Wooden Box Planters. They're great for floral arrangements, but can also be turned over to create height on your dessert table or used as containers for linen napkins or favors.
Planning tip: Ask yourself what makes the bride unique, then design the day in a way that reflects that.

From CAMILLE STYLES
I envisioned…A look that would appeal to the modern, creative bride, who prefers a romantic and feminine look through a simple, natural lens.
Standout decoration: Utilize roses and peonies with eucalyptus, air plants, and plenty of succulents. Serve St-Germain and champagne in blush-toned coupes and flutes. Add south-of-the-border touches!
Favorite product? I'm obsessed with the Rosy-Cheeked Coupes! They make any cocktail - or even champagne straight from the bottle - feel festive and really special.
Planning tip: To add excitement to a soft, romantic color palette, consider including one unexpected color into the mix. I love how the bright pops of orange add a modern vibe to the peach and ivory blooms.
