Q: What should we do at a flamingo bridal shower? A: Let’s flamingle, of course! I love the recent flamingo explosion, from pool floats to cute tank tops. The theme is perfect for a summer beach bridal shower, Palm Springs or Miami Beach bachelorette, or just a party in your own backyard. Put together this DIY flamingo ring toss game and serve your signature flamingo pink cocktail topped with one of these printable flamingo straw tags. And can we talk about this flamingo pool float cake?! It is everything. I want it in my life. For more flamingo inspiration, check out our Let’s Flamingle party board on Pinterest.
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.
Though Marie Antoinette has cornered the market on famous cake saying for awhile, we’ll gladly take this cheerful update from Kate Spade: “Eat cake for breakfast”…and your bridal shower, of course! Bride Sara’s Kate Spade bridal shower incorporated iconic black and white stripes with pops of neon pink and metallic gold. Showstopping details like hand-decorated cookies and macarons and vibrant arrangements of peonies and garden roses set the perfect tone for this fun-filled afternoon.
I know some of my ladies out there just can’t get enough pink, so this inspiration board is for you. Just be sure not to drift into baby shower territory though! Keep your shower on the adult side with one of these two tricks: 1) Pair pink with metallic gold and glitter accents to add grown-up sparkle and shine, or 2) Rather than bubblegum pink, choose a hot pink or fuchsia to keep the look fresh and fun (just like you).

The centerpiece for this gorgeous Love is Sweet bridal shower was a statement ombre pink wall featuring gold-rimmed vintage china and the custom tagline for the day: “Moodie in Love,” based on bride-to-be Diba’s new last name. The candy-pink wall was the perfect backdrop for a decadent sweets bar, including an ice cream cone station and plenty of soothing herbal teas to go along with. Photographer, event designer and friend of the bride Tiffany Lue-Yen recruited the help of the bridesmaids to collect and paint bottles and hang a wall of streamers for even more of a visual pop. These simple touches were inexpensive, but made a huge impact on the space. The resulting vibe is warm and invitingly homemade with a stylish vintage flair.
If you’re gonna go pink and glitter, you should really just go all the way—as evidenced by this gorgeous glittering pink high tea shower shot by Ducky Jessica Photography. DIY bride Helena created a girly glam wonderland of pink balloons and flowing fuchsia streamers in her Australia home. But this tea party theme is far from the traditional—it’s Marie Antoinette a la Sofia Coppola, the Mad Hatter on a sequin spree. Soft flower crowns were the perfect unexpected accessory, adding softness and a natural touch. Guests sat down to high tea before popping the glitter-dipped champagne bottles and retiring to the patio to enjoy the Sydney sunshine.
This carnvial-themed bridal shower just screams fun, with the bride’s stunning ring popping out a pile of gumballs and a serious Sex in the City moment on a nearby iron bridge. You know that scene—Carrie with the balloons? Bride Kellie transforms SJP’s New York moment into a sweet bridal story in these stellar shots from Dyanna Joy Photography. Other little touches I love? The shot of all the girls’ stylish shoes abandoned by the door and a snap of Kellie and her bridesmaids snacking on cotton candy in their flowy sundresses. The pops of pink throughout this story tie everything together, from the pastel pink cake and pink lemonade to the just-blooming cherry blossoms. Gorgeous!
