Parisian Bridal Shower Theme

This week’s first real party feature is a pretty Parisian Bridal Shower that hostesses Becki and Christy threw for their friend Whitney, and I think you’ll find the details to be fun, flirty, and extra sweet… especially the heartfelt party favors. Read on for all the party details, as told by the hostesses…

“Our dear friend Whitney met her prince charming in the French pavilion at Epcot. The two fell in love and were engaged back in “France’ aka Epcot.  Because her fiancé was French we believed she needed a “Parisian” bridal shower to prepare her for the big day.

Invitations:
We found Damask invitations from Target and printed them ourselves to save on printing costs!

Tabletop & party décor:
Most of the party supplies were purchased from Wal-Mart or Michaels in the Martha Stewart section with the exception of the feather boas, which were purchased online in bulk to save money. For the table tops we kept the décor simple by using flowers, candles and damask scrapbook paper.

Where possible we tried to use ribbon and the party “logo” that we created in Microsoft Word with an Eiffel tower. The table also included advice cards for the bride that we made out of standard party invitations.

Food & Beverages:
We choose to make both beverages pink. The hit of the party were the “Cham-chams” we made by adding a splash of Chambord and a few raspberries to each glass of champagne.

We also made a big pitcher of pink lemonade with sliced lemons:

We did our best to stick to a “Parisian” theme for the food. We made/bought little spinach quiche, cream puff pastry’s, yogurt parfaits & a brie cheese fondue.  For dessert we opted for cupcakes instead of a cake.

Favors:
The bride’s mother passed away from cancer a few years ago so instead of a favor we made a donation to the Susan G Komen foundation.  We created donation cards and wrapped them in tulle so that each guest could remember Whitney’s mother was there in spirit and watching down from heaven.
