Pastel & Vintage Infused Bridal Shower Inspiration

I’m so excited to share something new today {other than the past 3 months of holiday posts}! This beautiful inspiration shoot from Birch Blooms was created for a Thanksgiving tabletop challenge on Occasions Magazine, but the colors and ideas they incorporated are perfect for a Bridal Shower as it shares special sentiments about family members, like the grandparents and a deployed serviceman. The idea is so sweet because there is always someone special who is not in attendance due to their passing or other obligations – this is a great way to pay tribute to them.

Of course the styling of the table and surrounding area is full of lovely vintage inspired details like a ruffled bench seat cover, layers of burlap, fabric, & lace, and a charming black & white photo display. Check out all the gorgeous photos shot by Nikki Banik below…

  • The table is so pretty with it’s soft color palette and layers of table runners. The personalized napkin wraps are such a thoughtful touch, and the centerpiece is simple to create, but stunning.
  • I love the nostalgic photo board below and it’s a great way to remember family members who are no longer with us.
  • Another fun detail to this ‘party’ is the “Count Your Blessings” theme with the addition of numbers which represent different things like “2” grandbabies born this year, “16” feet gathered under this table, “18 million” stars to wish upon tonight, etc. You can see them all here.
  • Finally, the “Blessings” fabric swag is a great decorative touch to add to an entrance, behind a buffet table, or as a partition to define your space.

So many gorgeous details to get your creative juices flowing. Think about this for baby showers or milestone birthdays as well. Any celebration is a time to count your blessings!
