We attended the BLUSHING BLUE bridal shower of our dear friend, Shelly, last weekend. The bride’s sister and cousin hosted a beautiful shower that featured various shades of pink and blue. We had an amazing time and are excited to share the details with you!
Beautiful table styling centers around combining different elements that match or complement the central color palette. Consider adding a beautiful centerpiece to your dessert table. This can be an extravagant tiered cake or a beautiful floral arrangement. Also vary the height of your platters, desserts, and vases, as this is key for creating a visually stunning dessert table.
Shelly’s adorable invitation inspired the party’s pink and blue color palette. We loved the feminine table styling that included:
- Bubblegum pink tablecloth
- Fuchsia, cobalt and turquoise paper pom-poms
- Floral centerpiece – magenta roses, hot pink carnations and other pink flowers
- Yummy pink desserts
We recommend sourcing your decorative pieces (tablecloths, tissue paper pom poms and disposable tableware) from Party City, Amazon, Etsy or Michaels. Flowers are another way to bring the color scheme into focus.
For lunch, we feasted on pinwheel sandwiches, pita with assorted dips, cherry tomatoes with mozzarella, samosas and baked ziti. After lunch, we nibbled on:
- Pink champagne cupcakes
- Raspberry and lemon pastries
- Assorted gourmet cookies
- Chocolate covered strawberries with pink chocolate drizzle
- Mini muffins
- Fresh fruit
- Chocolates with an adorable photo of Shelly and Prashant
We toasted the bride with lots of pink champagne. For the non-drinkers, the hosts prepared a cocktail with elderflower and rose syrup.
No bridal shower is complete without some games!
- Taboo: Guests were given 3 bangles. If another guest overheard you say one of the taboo words, “bride,” “groom” or “wedding,” then you lost a bangle. The guest with the most bangles at the end of the shower won a prize.
- Memory: Guests were asked to write down their favorite memory of the bride. Shelly had to guess which guest wrote the memory. This game was a lot harder than it seems, but the bride got two-thirds of the memories correct.
Thanks again to Shveta and Anamika for hosting a lovely bridal shower. Shelly, we can’t wait to celebrate your big day in a few weeks!

It was a blasting bridal shower party!! Wonderful event and everything was just perfect. I also hosted a rainbow themed bridal shower for my sister and had booked rooftop party venues in Atlanta for this extraordinary bash. Everyone loved their arrangements and enjoyed a lot.
Thanks Curtis03 Lewis… Stay tuned for all the exciting events Twinspirational has planned for 2017.
This bridal shower party looks absolutely fun! I love the games you played, everyone seems to be having a great time.
That looks like such an amazing shower! I really love the way they tied the theme all the way from the decorations to the treats. Just gorgeous.
Wow! Everything looks great in this bridal shower. The pictures look great too! Congratulations on the successful event.
The food is amazing and I love the theme you picked. Everything is gorgeous!
The cupcakes look delicious. What kind of camera did you/the photographer use?
You guys look stunning and great. The cupcakes look yummy as well. Hope you guys had a blast.
Hihi….more boys need to wear pink, for sure! This was fun. I love most of the food you had prepared for the occasion.
Such a cute idea for a bridal shower! I’ve played the taboo game at a baby shower, but never a bridal shower.
I haven’t been in a wedding for years. Everything looks so nice here. It’s wonderful to celebrate together.
What a fun celebration! The food looked absolutely delicious! Hope it was a ton of fun. Thanks for sharing!
I had no idea games were a part of a bridal shower. You girls had such a great time. Are bridal showers just for women? Are men not allowed? I second your shopping resources. Amazon is for convenience while Etsy is for beauty.
Aw! It looks like such a great time. I wish her the best in her future. What a lovely celebration!
