art nouveau parisian bridal shower

If you’re looking for a chic new party theme for an upcoming shower or special event – check out this stylish & colorful “Turn of the Century, Art Nouveau Parisian” theme created by Kerri Butler for her friend’s bridal shower soirée. Inspired by the bride’s plans for honeymooning in Paris, Kerri used bright, rich colors, silk brocades, jewels, paper parasols, and gold leaf papers to communicate the luxury of that era!

Décor: Brocade and silk fabrics (purchased at Joann) covered the tables. I created the flowers arrangements from bouquets I bought at Costco, and urns from Michael’s. Flowers included orange roses, pink starburst chrysanthemums, and berry filler.

Favors: Bright, paper parasols, purchased from www.asianideas.com

Food: The lunch was provided by the DeGoyer Mansion Café.
