A Winter Themed Bridal Shower Shoot with Glitter and Sequins

Happy Friday!!!! It's time to celebrate - we've made it to the weekend. And, for me . . . it's my hubby's birthday so we'll likely be having pizza and staying in-front of the fireplace as we are all {hubby, myself and daughter} still trying to get over being sick this past week. Moving onto the inspiration for today . . . we are ending the Wedding Vendor Challenge week with a photo shoot for a bridal shower for 4 including a tablescape and dessert display. Shafoone of Making Your Event Special and Pretty Pear Bride used two shades of blue with an accent of silver. For the main table Shafonne used a light blue table cloth with a silver sequin overlay. For the centerpiece she used a silver and blue Christmas tree with a blue and silver wrapping paper accent. She even used the same wrapping paper for the placemats. I love the idea of carrying the tree theme into a winter event that is past the holiday. Makes the winter party fun and festive. Each guest received a white chocolate star lollipop, silver star and blue accent tree at their place setting.

For the dessert table Shafonne used the same wrapping paper for the cupcake tower and the cupcakes were adorned with blue and silver ornaments to add a pop of the blue and silver color.

And, since Pretty Pear Bride provides "Bridal Inspiration for the Plus Size Bride", Shafonne wanted to incorporate a model wearing an Alfred Angelo gown into a few of the photos from the shoot.

Oh how divinely "cool" this is (pun intended)! LOVE! We feel so honored to be included in this lovely decor and think Shafonne & Pretty Pear Bride are the coolest thing since sliced bread!
