We celebrated Lisa’s bridal shower at Colette Grande Cafe on a fine summer afternoon. The contemporary Parisian style event showed off a charming navy blue and blush color palette sprinkled with hints of silver and ivory.  Colette Grand Cafe welcomed guests with a sparkling sangria followed by a delectable three course lunch affair. A beautiful display of Parisian bonbons and sweets embellished the table centerpiece and decor throughout the event. These sweet treats were tastefully showcased by an array of Heirloom Keepsake’s custom designed dessert domes.

Each guest we welcomed with a calligraphy place card accompanied by the neighboring fine china and specialty plate chargers curated by Inspire Event Rentals.

Painterly Posies prepared a selection of flower cone favors with fresh blooms harvested from their urban gardening sites. In addition, hand painted tambourines were also introduced in the event to allow for guests to rumble a jingle or two in commending a toast or upcoming speech. The tambourines also played a special role in the event, as they accented a historic celebratory tradition often incorporated in celebratory gatherings and matrimonial occasions.

The event showcased no shortage of handmade goodness and artisan beauty. The event’s candles produced by Live and Lather boasts an elegant arrangement of organic floral aromas that were paired specifically to the event as a means to enhance the culinary selections of the day.

The bridal shower concluded with a surprise visit by the groom himself. The day was full of great friendship, love and elegance that aspired all things Parisian and beautiful.
