A One-Of-A-Kind Bridal Shower


With Bridal Season on the horizon, I wanted to create a beautiful and elegant Bridal Shower table that is also incredibly meaningful. And what better way todo so than creating a table from family heirlooms, vintage wedding china, and culinary traditions. After all, marrying someone is bringing together two families, so why not begin this merging at the Bridal Shower, taking “something borrowed” from each family and incorporating them into the display.

To create this look, do as I did and ask grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, and cousins to loan their wedding china, family heirlooms, and other small keepsakes for setting the table, displaying flowers, and decorating. Then take it a step further and ask for family traditions {for example, my grandmother served individual bowls of applesauce at special meals, so I did the same here in her china dishes}, ask for fabulous recipes or better yet, ask guests to make the special recipes! Bringing together all of the bride and groom’s family traditions in one room will make the day that much more special and instantly bond the people attending.

For my display I layered my grandmother’s pink linen tablecloth {if you look closely you will see her initials embroidered} and her favorite white linen napkins. I then went through her endless china cabinets to find beautiful plates, serving platters, and bowls. I had to mix and match with my dishes and my mother’s dishes to have enough for the table, but it culminated in a molding of the generations.

Then over on my buffet, I placed some of the groom’s family’s china on displays. I bought these display stands so I could stand up some of the beautiful platters. Then I filled vintage crystal bowls with lemons, and even found the sweetest salt and pepper stands. For flowers I chose mix of pink and white roses to compliment the colors in my table, but you can’t go wrong with simple white garden roses of your China really ranges in color!

I couldn’t think of a more special table to celebrate such an important day! I would love to hear about your bridal shower and how you made it unique! Be sure to share in the comment section below!
