Happy Tuesday, friends! This bridal shower Bari Elexa whipped up at Mints & Honey in San Carlos, CA features so many elements that could srsly be masterpieces all on their own. Take this cactus invitation suite from Lynn & Lou Paper Co. So impressive! And there’s the tablescape and dessert table, too. When it all comes together like in these photos Olivia Richards shared, it’s pretty much guaranteed that the bride had the bestest time ever celebrating Palm Springs style:

Their summery color palette had fuchsia, green, orange, and pops of gold. And for the florals, Colina Terui was inspired by the amazing runner they found at Anthro (see below!).

Bari says, It was a no-brainer that we designed a tropical themed fiesta for our Palm Springs Native babe, Brianna Rae. Her bridal shower brought back all her favorite things about her childhood, including palms, oranges, and a surprise chocolate chip cookie treat from Pretty Please SF! Guests indulged in these cookies as their first course, eating dessert first, as Brianna always likes to do. And how cute are these milk sippers from Anthropologie? It was the perfect little treat to get the party started!

For the cakes, they went with a tropical-meets-modern vibe to combine the bride’s hometown vibes with her San Francisco style. Now that she calls the Bay Area home, they wanted the whole affair to have the best of both words. So sweet!

Tropical, modern party themes, how we love you. Congrats, Brianna!
