Such a wonderful time when friends and relatives
can gather together to
shower someone with love
in preparation for their upcoming wedding.
I love to prepare a beautiful tablescape for a buffet on my
We are throwing a shower for my niece Danielle
and her fiance Justin.
Her mother, Kim, found these wonderful
paper parasols on-line and hand painted
and decorated them with glitter and
jewels and they are the inspiration
for our tablescape today.
Of course we need lovely flowers, and
White roses and lilies are the
flowers of choice for this bridal shower.
Everything is underpinned with
that I used at my oldest daughter's
wedding 9 years ago.
The tulle anchors everything and gives
such a lovely softness.
Two love birds nestle under glass.
They are surrounded by roses and lilies.
A perfect white rose, is there anything
This is all about sparkle and shine.
There is also plenty of bling.
A wedding gives a girl a chance
to be a princess, so I threw in
some crowned mercury glass bottles.
The fun initials were done by her
mother also. They were decoupaged
So many pretty things to
enchant the eye.
Pure white is always beautiful for
a happy celebration like this.
Pure white candles with a double
row of diamonds.
Plates start out the buffet and bubble
glasses and silverware
are at the opposite end of the buffet.
Food will be placed in front of the
display and nestled in the tulle.
I love this little crown stoppered
bottle nestled in the tulle.
I just love the custom touches her mother
made to the paper parasols. These are
definitely the stars of the tablescape.
The good silverplate perfectly
complements this elegant tablescape.
One final look down the buffet line.
What a perfect way to celebrate the
joining of two lives.
I know Danielle felt showered with love.
