Citrus Bridal Shower


I was blown away when I saw the fresh creativity of this Citrus themed bridal shower hosted by “Mrs. Penguin” on Wedding Bee.com! Everything was done so simply and (mostly) economically, but with amazing touches. There was a small splurge on the fabulously modern citrus fabric, but the use of inexpensive coordinating paper, and serving pieces she already owns helped offset that.

The hostess served a buffet of “mini food bites” so no utensils were needed. Check here for some recipes and tips, including mini BLT’s, sweet potato fries, mac-n-cheese in prociutto cups, and brownie bites with milk shots.  For the bar, she used the same fabric from the food buffet backdrop, now as a table cloth. There was a champagne bar (always a favorite of mine!) and the most unique and genius glass markers I think I’ve seen! She gives a ‘how-to’ on a post here.
The guests are sent home with a box of Lemonheads candies, of course! They are adorably wrapped in tissue(gives a sheer coverage), a strip of the fabric, and a yarn bow.

“Mrs. Penguin” was inspired by The Hostess with the Mostess’ citrus shower, and I think she was definately the hostess with the mostess this day! ; ) Click on the links to see more inspiring photos.
