This lavender backyard bridal shower is full of inspiring moments! From a donut wall to purple place settings and a blackberry cocktail, its both beautiful and fun. Tara Whittaker came up with the concept based on the bride’s favorite things. It came together beautifully and the result has become one of our favorite things! Tara shows us how to set up a similar affair for our own backyard parties, telling us all about it here…
This bridal shower was a relaxed gathering of friends and included two of the bride’s favorite things…her best friends and donuts. The donut wall with blueberry-glazed donuts was huge hit with party guests. It was created with pegboard and the accompanying hardware, a hand-painted sign and a flourish of blooms.
A simple table was dressed with linens, lavender dishes from Crate & Barrel, and fresh blooms from Flowers by Janie. Guests sipped on iced fruit cocktails and nibbled summer fruit arranged by color on a wooden tray.
Each guest left the celebration with a sweet treat to take home. Although this was a bridal shower, these ideas could easily be translated to any outdoor summer celebration!
