What’s colorful and quirky with touches of gold? A Kate-Spade-themed party! My bridesmaids threw me the prettiest bridal shower that I can’t wait to share. I insisted that everything be a surprise so it was exciting to finally see all the details and discover the theme. Here’s some more prettiness from the day…

My sister Sophie sent out Paperless Post invites. So cute!

The bright pops of pink and bold black and white stripes were spot on with the theme. Sophie also found a gold frame with zebras on it at Home Goods to display one of my engagement pictures. (Zebras are randomly woven throughout our wedding decor 🙂

The mimosa bar was a big hit. The glasses had mini glittery clothespins and name tags on them so guests could keep track of their drinks. And instead of using ice, guests dropped frozen berries into their glasses to keep their drinks cool and festive.

Framed tabletop signs added a whimsical touch.

The donut display was a fun alternative to a cake. I loved the little toppers!

candy bar

The candy bar had a variety of my favorite sweets, including white chocolate M&Ms, sour worms and peach rings, for guests to snack on and take home.

It was so fun seeing everyone dressed up!

For favors, each guest took home a macaron trinket box. I plan to stash six Skittles in mine (or a pair of earrings.)

The photo backdrop was one of my favorite things. My cousin Denise cut out an X and O from cardboard, covered them in small tissue pieces to give them texture and hung them up using ribbon. Everyone had fun taking pictures in front of it. I’d highly recommend having a photo backdrop (even if it’s a simple one) for your next party!

One thing I didn’t expect was how awkward opening presents would be. It sounds fantastic, but in reality, in a room full of people, you’re the only person opening gifts–gifts that you signed up for and asked people to get you–while everyone sits around you watching intently. But my friend Lindsey says that weddings are one of the few times this happens in life, so enjoy it!

Thanks to everyone who came and helped plan such a special day for me!
