Fashion blogger Elyse of Leather and Lace wanted to transport her guests to a secret garden in the city, so she asked GLDN Events to transform New York’s Gramercy Hotel into a flower-filled wonderland for her spring bridal shower. Soft pink and white streamers hanging from the ceiling gave the space a whimsical vibe and Elyse’s stunning pleated floral dress with a strappy open back completed the feeling of Alice gone through the looking glass. The white and pink anenome flower statement wall shows that a simple DIY can add instant impact. Black and white stripes on the table runner and cake added a modern touch to this festive floral shower, completing the urban garden party vibe.
Why do we love a garden party bridal shower? Because the decor couldn’t be easier to pull off or more gorgeous. Just add flowers to everything, from the top of the cake to the ice cubes in your cocktails. Gift each guest a mini succulent or packet of seeds to enhance their own gardens or ask an expert florist to give a class on making the perfect bouquet or flower crowns. Keep your menu light and colorful with loads of fresh spring vegetables (you can even get creative with plating—check out the mini hummus pots below!). You can’t go wrong with an abundance of spring blooms, a few patio chairs and a little sunshine.
