Throw your bestie a bridal shower that will WOW her with this gorgeous bridal brunch for babes only. The goal: create a fun atmosphere to celebrate the Miss to Mrs, and do it all in total style. Roxanne McClure Photography dreamed up this shoot, and says it best, “Get ready because we are about to give you another reason (like you needed more) to raise a glass of rosé in an intimate setting with your best go-to gals.”
From the secret garden table to all the tasty cocktails that are love at first sip, this inspiration has so many steal-worthy ideas to celebrate the bride-to-be we don’t even know where to begin! So we’ll let the gorgeous photos do the talking instead. Read more below, and catch a closer look in the full gallery.
from Roxanne McClure PhotogrpahyI wanted to create an indoor secret garden that was drenched in beauty. The room was filled with rosey hues, touches of rose gold and soft - yet playful - feminine details. Inspiration for the color pallet came from my grandmas rose garden that we used to visit. The scent is one I will never forget and Monique Lhuillier's garden rose plates were beyond perfect for this occasion. When creating this shoot, we envisioned an iconic babe with a little bit of sass that holds her friendships near and dear to her heart.
secret garden table
Mimi from Wild Rose and Thyme created a table runner filled with all things floral. A velvet magenta runner was the perfect addition by Party Crush Studio bringing a pop of color as well as texture. In Mimi's words: “I wanted to use beautiful, seasonal blooms that would catch your eye and make you feel as if your sitting in your own secret garden" It was important for us to find natural elements that fit perfectly into the setting we had. Each babe received her own “Best Friend Floral Bracelet”. We have done crowns and thought we would create something that reminded us of our childhood when we would sit in flower fields and make bracelets. Who wouldn’t want to raise a glass and toast with beauty around their wrist?
smoothie bowls + cocktails
Now for the food! Last year we created a taco wall, and then a chicken and waffle wall. This year, we went a little lighter and created rose water and oat banana strawberry smoothie bowls. They were decorated with dark chocolate, coconut shavings kiwi, strawberries, blueberries, almond slivers and edible flowers that made them as beautiful as they were mouthwatering. We didn’t want to stop there so we had y.so.sweet create mini rose infused cream puffs.
We created wine cocktails that were love at first sip. Rosé and vodka cocktails were splashed with elderflower liquor and garnished with delicate edible flowers. As if this wasn’t cute enough the stir sticks created by Happily Ever Etched made them sparkle even more.
Will wake for Rosé!
At the end of the meal you can’t forget a sweet treat! Rachels Cakes created a delicious modern square tiered almond cake filled with strawberry rosé buttercream. The cake in all its beauty stood high with delicate gold accents and fresh foliage. Rose and diamond sugar cookies were also created to match our theme and we couldn’t wait to sink our teeth into them!
Before saying our goodbyes we opened our trunk to reveal personalized sleep masks and mini champagne bottles with the wedding date on them by Mark and Graham. These were oh so perfect because around here we “Will wake for Rosé!"
