It’s heading towards June! That means WEDDINGS! And everything leading up to weddings from engagement parties to bridal luncheons is all so exciting. While the bride plans so many of these events, the bridal shower is one of the few celebrations that we can create a fabulous experience for the bride where she doesn’t have to think about every detail.
We’ve got a friend who is into anything vintage glam. She loves all things feminine and vintage glam really suits her. Flowers, bling, and a bit of formality fits her style to a tee. And we think it is the perfect look for her bridal shower brunch. So after we figure out how many people will be with us to celebrate, we set out to create the best vintage glam table settings we possibly can.
The Vintage Glam Giant Flower Wall.
We have seen these giant flower walls on Pinterest and we wanted to incorporate one into her celebration. So our first stop was etsy.com thinking we would just buy the flowers. But, after looking at the collections we figured we could just make them. So we went to YouTube to see just how they were made. Next, we went back to easy.com to find some templates we could use. These are the flower templates we got. Then we went to Michael’s and got cardstock paper in pinks & cream. They have a great collection of colors.
We started out cutting the flowers out by hand but quickly decided this was a job for my Cricut machine. Boy were we glad we had the Cricut after about the 3rd flower. And let me just tell you that we used a lot of paper! Especially for the really large flowers because we could only get one petal per page for those.
The Vintage Glam Table Setting.
Continuing with the flowers we created the centerpiece. Silk flowers and rhinestone pins from Amazon brought the vintage glam theme to life on the table. Around the centerpiece, we added mercury glass votive candle holders and a rhinestone picture frame from Amazon for the table number.
Next we focus on the place setting. Here is were the vintage and the bling really comes through. First, we start with a place card cut from glitter cardstock with the Cricut machine and then hang it on a mini champagne bottle. Second, we place a silver charger edged with rhinestones from Michael’s and layer with a white plate, a vintage light pink buffet plate & an ivory embossed cocktail napkin both from Smarty Had A Party. Finally, we wrap the plates with a pink satin ribbon and add a rhinestone pin. In addition, we add a disposable champagne glass, a plastic crystal wine glass, and baroque metallic plastic silverware – all from Smarty Had A Party.
The Vintage Glam Brunch Menu
Finally we plan the brunch menu. Rather than a formal meal, we want to offer a fun buffet menu of Strawberries & Cream French Toast, Apple Hash Brown Casserole, Creme Brûlée-Apple French Toast Bake, Crabby Eggs Benedict, Crispy Chicken & Waffles, and, of course, Raspberry Lemonade Champagne.
It’s time to celebrate!
