Vintage Bridal Shower

Hi! I’m Lora of Craftivity Designs – my friend, Erica, and I love to take a DIY approach when it comes to decorating our homes and celebrating special events. We are so excited Nancy invited us over here to share with you today!

We hosted this Romantic Pink+Burlap Bridal Shower for my {now} sister-in-law. She loves neutral colors and simple elements. For her Bridal Shower, we wanted it to speak to her style, but bring in a little bit of color with a simple soft pink. I just love how it turned out.

If you want to really bring a party together without spending a lot of money — choose a focal point. It’s more cost effective than trying to decorate the whole space. We were dealing with a pretty large room, so this was a great way to achieve a big impact without breaking the bank!

We anchored the focal point with a fabric scrap banner and some large paper lanterns hung in front of the windows. This simple DIY banner let the light peak through for a lovely, romantic effect.

The banner is made up of burlap and floral fabric strips, about 1″ thick each — with some pink ribbon to add just a bit of shimmer. Simply tie each strip around a dowel rod, until you achieve the desired amount of fullness.

All that is needed once the backdrop is in place, is to set the serving table. Think outside of the box (aka a standard vase of flowers) when it comes to a centerpiece. We bought paper mache letters and thrifted a wooden ampersand to lean against a vintage postal scale topped off with some pink carnations.

We also used family heirlooms to set the table including lace doilies and a grandparent’s wedding topper set under a cloche.

The burlap runners are simple decor too, no hem tape or needle and thread, we just cut them to size.

Also, I just must close with a photo of the beautiful Bride (with my sweet little boy) – dressed in a lace shift dress with some simple gold jewelry. After all, her sense of style was the inspiration for this shower!


We’ll be sharing some more of this sweet Pink+Burlap Bridal Shower (like the yummy foods and drinks!!!) over on our blog in the next few weeks. I do hope you will follow along via Facebook and Twitter to get the details.

We’ve so enjoyed visiting with you today! Thanks again, to Nancy, for letting us stop by and share.
