Champagne Brunch Bridal Shower (18 photos)
In May, 2010 my sister and I were honored to host a bridal shower for our middle sister, Emily. She is a sweet and thoughtful kind of gal, with a fresh and casually elegant style. Her love for all girlie "mini" finger foods and "bubbly" drinks, lended themselves perfectly to a Champagne Brunch!
Guests were greeted at the the front door with a cheerful wreath of spring flowers, adorned with the brides and grooms initials. The home was decorated with tissue paper poms of varying sizes in white and cream, suspended from the ceiling to give an airy feeling to the space. Small arrangements of white and cream flowers dotted tables throughout the house. Coasters and beverage napkins, handprinted with the bride-to-be's initials were placed conveniently on each tablesurface as well.
The brunch table was decorated with tall papier mache letters of the bride and grooms first initals, as well sprinkled with hand-cut and painted card letters of cream, white and yellow in varying styles and sizes. The room was again adorned with large and small poms, and displayed on the wall mirror was the brides first name spelled out in the same hand-cut and painted card letters, also in cream, white and yellow. Each breakfast goodie platter was labeled with a tiny rice filled flower pot and garden sign.
We served an assortment of mini-quiches,muffins, pastries and an ambrosia salad on our grandmother's favorite china. To sip on, we offered coffee,iced tea and water. To complete the Champagne Brunch we offered a Mimosa Bar, with several juices such as Pineapple Peach and Cherry Pomagranate to choose from. And what party would be complete without cake? For our bride, a diehard University of Kansas Jayhawk, we served vanilla cake in the shape of a veiled Kansas Jayhawk. This may have been a close tie with the Mimosa Bar for biggest hit of the party!
After several rounds of mimosas, games and the opening of gifts, guests left with favors of individually wrapped sugar cookies decorated with the bride-to-be's initials.
