Christy's Kate Spade Themed Bridal Shower!

My Seester is getting married!!

I had the honor of throwing her a bridal shower last weekend, and it was so much fun!
You know I love to party plan, and when it is for your best friend, who gives you a great theme idea, what could be better?!
She loves the Kate Spade stylizing, with black and white stripes, and gold polka dots, so we went with that for the decor, with a blush/peach color. It was so much fun to shop for everything!

We also decided to do a brunch theme, with breakfast burritos (because...yes!), cinnamon roll muffins, fruit salad, and quiche.

But, wait there's more! Because obviously, you need doughnuts!! And cookies, and a custom cake!
I got this adorable doughnut printable from this Etsy shop, by Amira.  And post-party, it currently resides in my kitchen :)

The amazing cake was made by the talented sisters of Twinfully Sweet! They are just the best! Follow them on Instagram, too! Also their episode of Cake Wars aired tonight, so, they're legit!

And my patient and talented friend helped me make the cake topper from gold scrapbook paper!
It turned out so well!

We had a mimosa and coffee bar for the drinks. In true Kate Spade slogan fashion, I found the perfect banner for the table from this Etsy shop, Life Is Rosier, that says Pop, Fizz, Clink in the perfect fonts!

Our other theme was...glitter! Again, because...always, yes!

Christy and I coated all the champagne bottles for the mimosas in pink and gold glitter! It was so much fun, and they turned out awesome. Even if I still am finding glitter specks in my house, ha! That stuff never really goes away entirely, does it?

I collected all sorts of different size and shape glassware to use as flower vases. Anthropologie clearance (woot!), JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby all had great stuff.

A very talented Bridesmaid and I made the printable art we framed on all the tables, inspired by Kate Spade quotes, and love.

As party favors I decided to dip Oreo cookies in white chocolate and dust with gold glitter sprinkles and edible shimmer dust!  Obsessed with that stuff!

All the flowers were from a local vendor in Irvine, and I cannot recommend her enough! She was so reasonably priced, so kind, and the flowers turned out gorgeous!

Shout outs to the other bridesmaids who helped me pick up, trim and arrange all the flowers and assemble the favors the night before!! :)

For the table runners, Hobby Lobby had the PERFECT fabric I was dreaming of! I was so stoked!
I didn't even hem them. No one cares. I just cut them in 1 1/2'  wide strips. Easy peasy!

These metallic acrylic bow drink stirrers were my absolute favorite!  From The Roc Shop
She makes so many other cute items, too!! Follow her on Instagram!

So, the tissue paper tassel garland. I have made these before. They turned out all right. There are lots of shops who sell them on Etsy. Save yourself the trouble, and, for a big party or home decor just buy one from one of the best shops! Don't try and save a buck. Don't cry when you can't DIY one quite as good as you hoped. Buy one. A good one.   From BlushBazaar. (or Studio Mucci if she opens her shop again).

Other Etsy Finds:

Cheers! napkins - Mod Party
Pop Fizz balloons - Brit & Co, or The Flair Exchange 
Gold Polka Dot Cheers Coasters
Invitations/Thank you cards - Kim @ Little Birdie Prints was amazing!

I am going to post several detailed tutorials in the upcoming weeks on how I made the glittered champagne bottles, Oreo cookie favors, banners, and more! They are all such easy and fun projects that made a big impact at the party!

This gorgeous cousin of ours graciously took all these amazing photos! Thanks Nikki!!

Congrats to the happy couple!
