Oh my goodness do I have an something AMAZING for you all today! I’ve never featured a bridal shower before, but when Dana Goodson sent this Parisian shower over, I was so inspired by the fabulous details that I just HAD to share it with you all! Plus, it’s perfect for today, since Tuesdays are all about inspiration! ;) I for one absolutely LOVE showers. Bridal, baby, couples- the type of “shower” doesn’t matter to me, I just love to have an excuse to create something fun and awesome, and showers are perfect for that! [Confession: I can’t wait for more of my close friends to get engaged and have babies so I can put together fantastic showers for them. Get on it friends! ;)] Okay, enough of my gushing about how fun showers can be… I have PROOF of how fun this Parisian shower was!

The lovely bride Lara was kind enough to tell us all about her awesome shower…

“My Parisian bridal shower was a wonderful and magical soiree, hosted by my fabulous Mom! I have always loved all things Paris and together, we thought it would make for a fun and cute shower. Because most of our family and friends are from out of town, we decided to have the shower the day before the wedding. We wanted to have a memorable party filled with love, games and too much food! My Mom and I own Declaration Boutique and Events, where we create custom details for weddings and parties. So of course, we had to come up with some fun and different details all our own! The overall design was a blast to create and we put everything together from start to finish. We hung parasols from the ceiling, brought a hand drawn (by me!) patisserie to life, and even had macaroon escort cards. The games were fun to design and were the real hit of the shower. Each guest was given a Je T’aime tote bag filled with all of their game supplies. “Paper Doll Lara” was the favorite by far and now I have a collection of 50 handmade wedding dresses! There were vignettes throughout the shower, a pale pink bicycle with fresh flowers and baguettes and vintage lace parasol with Paris suitcase made you feel as though you were really in Paris! The thoughtful food stations and passed hors d’oeuvres were also hit!”

So what do you all think? Is this shower not amazing?! But now I’m SUPER curious… are any of you wanting to have fabulous bridal showers like this? Do you already have a theme? Or do you perhaps need more bridal shower inspiration? Because I could totally arrange that… ;)

    What an amazing find. I can’t decide which detail I love the most! I will say i can;t get enough of those macaron escort cards. I think I’ll have to pin most of this ;-)

    Such a beautiful shower (and beautiful bride). Love all of the details and personal touches. Happy to say that it was even better in person :) Thanks for featuring it!

    Wow – this bridal shower is amazing. I LOVE that dessert display with the hand drawn patisserie backdrop. The bride-to-be needs to sell those – what a brilliant idea. And, the tote bags with the game supplies in them is such a great idea. Plus, the bags look so pretty on the chairs.
