This gorgeous SHABBY CHIC BRIDAL SHOWER was submitted by Laura Murphy of Live Smile Celebrate. What a beautiful celebration! There are a ton of ideas that could be used for a birthday party or baby shower, too!

Laura said- “I recently hosted a bridal shower for my childhood best friend. I knew I wanted to give her a shabby chic/vintage theme because it fit her personality. I started planning ideas months ago. All I wanted was to give her a day she would truly remember. She is so special to me and I treasure all my memories with her.

For the eating table, I used three 8ft tables with white garden chairs. I used an assortment of different size vases to fill flowers with. The table was set with with a large pink plate layered with a doily and a green plate and topped with a menu. I wrapped each napkin with a printable holder.

For the dessert table I wanted to keep it pretty simple. The weather was 90 degrees outside, so I was cautious as to what would hold up in the heat. I made the cake myself and added some fresh flowers to it. It was simple and sweet. We also had mini fruit cups, mini strawberry shortcake treats, chocolate parfaits, meringue cookies, pink whoppers, lemon cupcakes and butter cream cupcakes.

For the drink area, we had lemonade, sangria, & waters. I used mason jars as our glasses, wrapping each of them with laced ribbon. Pink striped straws were used in each of the glasses. The Sangria was made by my friend Noelle. It was so yummy! For the favors, I made homemade salt bath scrub {Recipe Below} in half pint sized mason jars. After I sealed them, I topped them with a piece of ribbon and twine. For the display, I painted and sanded a piece of shelf and added some lace ribbon to give it a rustic feel.”

    So cute! This fits me to a tee! How did you get the lace ribbon around the mason jars? Super glue? It doesn’t look like it’s tied.
