springtime Boho-inspired Driveway bridal shower

Updated: Nov 13, 2020

We've loved the opportunity to provide rentals and styling for some amazing clients this spring and summer.

We were contacted by the sister of the bride, who wanted to provide a beautiful shower for her sister and some of their closest friends, while still being socially distant and careful. What transpired was a driveway bridal shower, where guests stopped to drop off a gift, and in return received a beautiful succulent favor in a terra cotta pot, along with cookies and desserts, individually wrapped for easy transport.

Knowing that the couple loved the Bohemian feel of our vintage Peacock chairs, we settled on a sweetheart table package, complete with wicker lanterns, a gold cake plate for display of a variety of the geometric shaped cookies and cupcakes, our our vintage Joy farm table, perfect for two! We included table decor to match the theme, using our Moroccan gold candle holders! The bride provided a macrame table runner. Anchored by balloons on each of the chairs, there was no lack of beauty in this driveway bridal shower!

A table was set for guests to take a potted succulent before they left, and this was such a cute display. Who doesn't love succulents! The cutest succulent style cookies were provided by Aunt Leslie's Sweet Treats. Cupcakes were designed by Creative Cakes! Individually wrapped, they were quick take aways for guests. Beautiful floral additions were provided by Ki House, while balloon decor was provided by Paris 312. Each of the dessert and favor tables had calligraphy signs, created by SB Designs.

Lettering signage was the final touch, and was provided by Yellow Shoes Event Rentals! All in all, what came about as a result of having to cancel bridal shower plans turned into a beautiful tiny event, complete with all the unique details, and allowed friends and family to celebrate the new beginnings for Nicole and Marc.

The beautiful photos were captured by Ashley Galminas Photography and we're so happy that we can share them with you. Inspiration is a wonderful way to plan new ways to celebrate, and these photos will surely inspire you!

Whether you've had to reschedule your bridal shower, baby shower, or wedding plans, we'd be honored to help create a revised design for a more intimate event, whether at home or in our intimate venue, The Loft of Elements Preserved. Love is not postponed, and neither do those milestone celebrations need to be. When combined with social distance, masks, and thoughtfulness for others, you're still able to celebrate. Delivery and styling are available through our team when we bring our collection to you! We've found a real joy in providing decor and design to our clients who've had to change plans, and we're pretty sure they've walked away feeling like their special day was just as special, spent with a few less friends, but no less satisfying to making it magical and memorable.
