Make sure your bridal shower is ON POINT with this fun cactus themed party! With a desire to put a modern twist on the pre-wedding tradition, Olive & Rose sought to design a picture perfect soiree at the Sapphire & Lace cottage that was anything but boring. Bright magenta, copper, and rose gold certainly made for an eye catching color palette. But the creative uses of cacti and succulents was where things really got interesting. Styled down the middle of a wooden table, sitting atop a buttercream cake, or inspiring other sweet treats, the prickly plants were the stars of this show! A DIY flower crown bar, colorful handmade balloon display, custom name plates, and a floral patterned stationery suite from Purple Wagon Designs rounded out the steal-worthy ideas. Take a stab at creating your own desert themed shower with these images from Abbie Tyler Photography.
From the stylist…
We wanted to create a really fun, girly bridal shower using a lot of popular themes – bright colors, rose gold, and copper accents. For flowers, we wanted bright pinks mixed with pops of green succulents and cactus. We incorporated a lot of different textures from the macramé table runner to the smooth copper chairs to the gorgeous rose gold chargers! Guests dined on adorable cactus inspired desserts, sipped mimosas from the styled bar cart, and took photos against the awesome balloon arch backdrop! We believe a bridal shower should be free from cheesy games, but offer some sort of fun activity. For ours, each girl got to create a custom flower crown – a great accessory for the day!
