This guest blogger series is from our Graphic Design Intern, Elayna, who was recently asked to be a bridesmaid in her best friend’s upcoming wedding. Her posts will be full of inspiration and updates as she assists the bride for her wedding next spring!
I have been asked to be a bridesmaid, and I am sooo excited! I love helping my friends prepare for their big day and this time is particularly special because we have been friends for almost 20 years! First on the list of festivities is the engagement party. I have decided to create mood boards for the bride-to-be’s parties to spark inspiration. For the engagement party, she wants everything black and white with splashes of polka dot. I love it; Simple, modern and chic. Check out the board I created:

Parisian themes are a popular choice for celebrations of all kinds! Whether incorporating colorful macarons in to your desert display, or vintage perfume bottles and elegant Eiffel Towers in to your decor, your event will go from “blah” to “ooh la la” with the addition of a few chic Paris-inspired details! Kate Aspen has you covered from Eiffel Tower bottle openers, stoppers, place-card holders, and more!

Isn’t there something special about setting a beautiful table? Arranging fresh flowers, using beautiful linens, displaying food on ornate serving platters… A special occasion like a bridal shower really isn’t complete without a beautiful table setting.
One element that can elevate a lovely table is candlelight – whether it’s with rustic lanterns or delicate flickering votives, the glow of candlelight can make any event feel magical.
Lanterns are the perfect touch to complete a rustic table setting. Mini lanterns cast a warm glow, and they make the perfect favor for guests to take home!
Tealight holders can be sprinkled along the table for a subtle glow, or used in groupings for a big impact. These dainty accessories are the perfect accent for an elegant table display. Even an ordinary wine glass can be elevated with the addition of a tealight and vellum shade. Tuck them between low floral arrangements for height and sparkle.
