Bridal Shower Ideas

Jeni, from found {vintage rentals}, and Brandi’s bridesmaids got together and threw this amazing shower! Brandi’s married name will be Lemon, so of course the girls used lemons throughout the design and decorations. The country chic theme went perfectly at Studio EMP’s office in Downtown Fullerton and all of Jeni’s inventory really made the shower come to life!

All the details, food and drinks were made by (the bride’s best friend) Kaysha of Kaysha Weiner Photography and the other bridesmaids, including the jam, which was made from all local and organic fruits by bridesmaid, Marcella Treybig. Also, the flower poms were made from vintage clothing patterns and tissue. As a special treat, the music playlist for the day was created by Brandi’s soon to be husband, Will! Each song was chosen for a sentimental reason and was posted for everyone to see.

It is always fun to have a signature drink at your bridal shower that either is the bride’s favorite or blends in with the wedding theme. You can never go wrong with a Lemon Drop Martini. Below is the recipe in case you were looking to serve a lemony treat. The below recipe is for one serving.

Ingredients
1 1/2 ounces vodka (use a good-quality vodka)
1/2 ounce orange liqueur (Triple Sec, Grand Marnier, Cointreau, etc.)
1 teaspoon superfine sugar or to taste*
3/4 ounce freshly-squeezed lemon juice
Ice cubes
Superfine sugar for dipping
Twisted peel of lemon

Directions
Superfine sugar is instantly dissolving sugar that is typically used in drinks. If you want to avoid the shaking, make a Basic Simple Syrup Recipe to use in place of the sugar.
Mix the vodka, orange liqueur, sugar, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice; shake well (supposedly the cocktail is to be shaken 40 times to make sure the sugar is well blended).
Pour strained liquor into sugar-rimmed martini glass and garnish with a twisted peel of lemon. To create a sugar-rimmed glass, take a lemon wedge and rub the drinking surface of the glass so it is barely moist. Dip the edge of the glass into the superfine sugar.

    Lovely shower… lovely atmosphere and I really like those cards to fill out. Plus, I’m going to make those lemon drop martinis for my next dinner party, seems a shame not to with Sorrento right next door

  6. Where is the custom print from at the bottom? What a lovely idea!

    @Indiana the print is from Nan Lawson (http://www.etsy.com/shop/NanLawson?ref=seller_info). They currently are not making anymore custom work but hopefully will in the near future!!
