When a fabulous bride is about to say I do in Punta Cana, what better way to celebrate her upcoming nuptials than with a tropical themed bridal shower!

Last month I had the pleasure of assisting the most thoughtful wedding party, as they prepared to shower their good friend with lots of love and a bright and fun soiree! From brunch meetings with the amazing maid of honor to phone calls discussing details, working with these ladies was a joy, and the bride is one lucky lady to have friends like them. Not to mention, the bride has the sweetest personality, so all around I enjoyed being apart of this special event.

This theme was the perfect way to get guests excited for the Dominican Republic, and for those who won't be able to make the trip, a chance to get a taste of paradise. Designing this soiree was a lot of fun and I put my floral skills into action by whipping up beautiful tropical arrangements that added so much flair to the room. There were so many elements of the day that I loved - from the tiki bar, to the delicious food from Porch Catering, to a fun tropical twist on the traditional Toilet Paper Bride game, and of course the pineapple and palm details throughout the signage and decor. But best of all was seeing the bride get teary eyed as she walked into the shower! It's always so rewarding to know the work that you do is valuable and to work with a great group of people.
