Sweet & Spicy bridal shower

Categories   Bachelorette + Shower

So, we know that most bridal showers aren’t this well thought out and coordinated and styled and everything, so don’t compare yours to this one! But we still thought you all would like to see it, because it’s reeeeeally good. Samantha and Whitney of Gus & Ruby Letterpress headed up the styling and did all the pretty paper details, with Jenna’s scrumptious calligraphy.

The concept was that like a good marriage, Lauren (the bride and Samantha’s close friend) is both sweet and spicy. The food, decor, and paper details all followed the theme and it turned out so cute! They even asked guests to wear either sweet pink or spicy red. Talk about going all out!

Well done! We just did a "whipped cream" (naughty or nice) theme for my friend's bridal shower. Here's the link: http://evababedesigns.blogspot.com/2010/07/design-inspiration-for-bachelorette.html

I absolutely love the invites! What a unique idea to use a box with treats as a background for beautiful letterpressed work. And those peonies are gorgeous. Well done!

The Graph Design's of these cards are amazing. The layout, color, and font are designed perfectly. Great design is in the details. These invites are perfection. Great Job.

This was a very well thought out bridal shower. I like how the sweet or spicy carry all the way through the event from invitation to party favors.

Nicole @NicheWhite on Sep 8, 2010

Amazing! What a great idea, and I love how it is carried through the entire shower! I think I was pretty much the last of my friends to get married but I'm going to file this away for whichever bride is next!

Danielle Pasternak on Sep 9, 2010

What a beautiful and cohesive thought. The typography is perfect and I love the way it's incorporated throughout the entire event. Well done!

The letterpress design is really great, good use of colors and i like the idea of having the guests where a certain color. Bringing your own story to the party for the bride to keep is something i would like to use in my own shower...someday ;)
