Excited to be sharing all the charming details from the Southern inspired bridal shower, which includes this simple and elegant DIY backdrop.

We’re back with another bridal shower, and this one’s a floral doozy!

I’m hoping that you aren’t all shower-ed out since I shared the full details from mine last week, and my sister-in-law’s just a couple months ago.

What can I say? I’m a sucker for parties, especially where desserts and massive amounts of flowers are involved.

You may have caught a few glimpses of the behind the scenes from this one on IG stories over the weekend. But I’m excited to be sharing the peony-filled recap of the southern inspired bridal shower.

We celebrated one of Kayla’s good friends, Madi, and she’s a big fan of all things vintage and classic.

Local Bridal Shower Location Idea

The Studio HTX space was the perfect place to bring our ideas to life! It also didn’t hurt that we only had to cart our goodies across the hall since we share a building.

It was fun to take a slight detour from our typically modern style and bring a little of the south into the decor. Let’s just say there were plenty of biscuits involved too.

Bridal Shower Flowers

First of all, can we talk about these flowers?!

Flower Muse hooked us up big time with tons of blooms and we teamed up with our favorite ladies, Blush & Vine, for all the arrangements! They seriously killed it.

I love the addition of fresh peaches, mixed with unexpected pops of color like the Proteas. It made for a very unique vibe.

Bridal Shower Party Favors Idea

Each guest grabbed a pink box on the way out with a cherry sprinkle donut in it! Jared, the ultimate Shipley’s fan, was very excited when he got to take home the extras.

Basically, there were happy campers all around.

Vintage Inspired Tabletop Setting

Rather than using our typical modern gold flatware, we chose a more vintage-inspired set for the table this time around.

Each place setting was a combination of blue floral plates and classic china patterns.

It all looked so super chic paired with the Minted menus and blush pink table runners!

Southern Inspired Bridal Shower Menu

Strawberry mint juleps were the perfect go-to for the southern inspired afternoon!

Plus, we could easily mix them beforehand in cute tall jars with gold lids so they were ready to go for all the guests when they arrived.

We served up some classic home cooking with fried chicken, biscuits, salad, and mac & cheese! Of course, we also had all the fixings —  toppings for days and mini jams for each guest.

Bridal Shower Backdrop Idea

I wanted to add a special element to the buffet table. So I ended up creating this DIY Floral Embroidery Hoop Backdrop

It’s simple and elegant, incorporates flowers and is so easy to make.

More Ways To Personalize A Bridal Shower

We had a custom retro painting made of the bride for the shower invites and blown up as a fun touch for the shower!

It was funny to see Madi’s face when she walked into the room and saw a large cartoon version of herself sitting on the easel, haha!

We spend a lot of our time putting together entertaining ideas, so it’s fun every once in a while to put them to use by celebrating friends.

Are you hosting any bridal showers this summer? I’d love to hear where you get your inspiration!

    • Thank you so much, Paige! Right? It’s easy to forget sometimes that Pinterest hasn’t been around forever!

  2. This is dreamy!! I literally saved 4 pins for inspiration :) I love getting inspiration for the showers at the shop from the bride’s wedding look, or finding a fun decor item to build around.
