A Succulent Bridal Shower!

My best friend Lindsay got married last weekend in Austin & we threw a bridal luncheon for her on the Friday before her wedding at Abel's on the Lake. We decided to go with a succulent theme (just cause it sounded fun!) -- here are some pics below!

The invitations for the shower had a yellow chevron background with aqua and coral succulents (made by Oh Louise! of course!). For each place setting we planted a succulent in a mercury jar vase from West Elm. I used metal stamps to put each guests initials on a vintage silver plated spoon (this was also their partay favor). 

I found a couple of old wooden crates in Canton for $5 a piece and stained them to get them the right color. Then we had Dirt (a florist specializing in succulents in Bishop Arts in Dallas) fill both crates with a variety of succulents and a few flowers that coordinated with the invitation colors.

We also had a menu at each place setting that coordinated with the invitations.

One of the tables all finished!

We spray painted this frame from ikea to use as a photo prop!

Beautiful succulent petit fours for dessert made by Red Raspberry. They were a huge hit! :) 


The end!! Hope you enjoyed our succulent shower! :)
