It really doesn’t get any better than a whimsical garden bridal shower, with touches of Kate Spade, all inside a gorgeous greenhouse.
The Greenhouse in the Grand Rapids Downtown Market offered the perfect setting for Cristyn’s intimate bridal shower. Lorri, the Matron of Honor, and I worked on creating a romantic garden bridal shower for Cristyn, adding some preppy touches of Kate Spade.
Shades of pink were accented with gold, geometric shapes kept things modern and fun, and were a great contrast to the romantic flowers. And boy, were there flowers. Besides the fact that the greenhouse is home to potted plants and flowers, my garden at home was bursting with spring flowers, allowing me to use a lot of flowers that aren’t available from a wholesaler (can you say bleeding hearts everywhere!).
Lorri, the sweetest person ever, wanted Cristyn and the guests to feel extra special, so we were made sure to include a lot of special details. Guests were invited to socialize while sipping on drinks, share their favorite memory of the bride and their best date night idea. We designed a special place for Cristyn to open her gifts and I created a backdrop installation of whimsical greenery and blooms. At the conclusion of the afternoon, as guests left, they were gifted with cute bags of popcorn, Starbucks gift cards, and small flower arrangements. We even had the fabulous Amy Carroll come to capture the special day, so Cristyn could always remember it.
