This past year was BIG for me in terms of weddings. My little sister and one of my best friends both tied the knot, and I was honored to be maid of honor and bridesmaid for their special days. There was no way I was going to let their bridal showers be anything short of fabulous, so I teamed up with my best friend (and co-event designer aficionado) to create the dreamiest outdoor bridal showers for both of them.
My sister's shower was held in my parents’ Los Angeles backyard. We started with a color palette of blush and mauve linens, ivory draping, cascading florals in plumb and fuchsia, and a dessert bar to die for. Then added in the sweetest details. Everything from wedding-inspired nail polish names, floral corsages for the guests, personalized décor for the bride and groom and a colorful mimosa bar, this stunning affair was one for the books.

For my friend's shower, I wanted to go a bit brighter and bolder. Hot pink and bright coral florals mixed with mediterranean blue linens and flatware, my favorite part of the event was the customized giveaways that cleverly featured the groom's name. A beautiful spread of deserts, adorable signs and sayings and the most beautiful calligraphy details made her shower absolutely unforgettable.
