Inspired Occasions had the opportunity to plan and execute a Lavender/Kitchen themed Bridal Shower. The outdoor setting was a perfect match for the theme.   We wanted to incorporate an outdoor feel in the decor so you will notice details that pair well with the venue.

Lace parasols were filled with flowers and floated in the pool.  Everyone enjoyed the pop of color and delicateness of these arrangements.

We used both small and large lace parasols to add variety to the decor.

The chairs were covered in an organza fabric and lavender with a ribbon was used to complete the look.

Since the theme was “stock the kitchen” we used bamboo utensil holders filled with purple Texas wildflowers as centerpieces to decorate the table. A large white mum was used to add femininity and delicateness to the centerpiece.

Kitchen colanders filled with hydrangeas were also used for centerpieces.

We crafted a lovely recipe box for the bride-to-be.  The guests brought cards with their favorite recipes to share with her as a special gift.

We just love the lace parasols filled with flowers in the pool.  You will also notice the food table in the background.  The hostess had a wonderful setting for this event.
