Spring bridal shower ideas

We have to say, we’re pretty smitten with some of the spring wedding trends we’re seeing so far this year, from wild, colorful blooms to super playful, bold tablescapes. So when it came to styling our spring bridal shower with Crate and Barrel, we were more than ready to see how all we could channel all those wildflower vibes in a laidback, backyard celebration. And in case you’re wondering, yes, all those classic kitchen staples and timeless entertaining pieces you’ve been adding to your Wedding Registry do look quite at home all dressed up in edible flowers and fresh fare…

So, we’ve mentioned Crate and Barrel’s Mercer collection before, which comes in white, grey, and now denim. Isn’t it the prettiest pop of blue? You can actually snag this shade on your appetizer, salad, and dinner plates (to name just a few staples of the line) or mix and match with the more classic pieces on your Registry.

Edible floral cookies

Naturally we had to connect with flower pro Loria Stern on all-things wildflower. She’s known as the queen of flower pressed shortbread cookies, cakes, and delicious, fresh, floral food.

Pretty grazing boards are a staple of spring and summer, if you ask us.

Speaking of grazing boards. Serveware is probably one of the most important tabletop pieces at a laidback party like this. When you’re gathering around a long table, having a few different serving trays, like the Carson Cheese Board shown here makes it easy for guests to snack in comfort. They break up the table and you can serve all your fave finger foods at once.

DIY tip: Make your own DIY low table for spring and summer entertaining out of pine planks and cinderblocks. This one is about 4′ wide and 12′ long with space for 6 guests on each side.

The Dax Double Old-Fashioned Glass is ideal for outdoor dining. When adding to your Gift Registry in honor of an outdoor event, don’t forget about all the ways you can use your tabletop and barware after the fact. Hi, summer party!

These Modern Stripe Fringe Napkins soften the tablescape. If you look closely, you’ll see that we used its matching tablecloth for our drink + dessert station, below…

Even if your bridal shower is super casual and boho, you want to make sure your guests are extra cozy. You’ll be dining on the ground, after all. This Alma Ivory Fringe Indoor/Outdoor Rug and lots of big pillows elevate the look of the event while keeping everyone comfortable. Plus, it creates a little designated dining area which is super helpful when celebrating in a wide open space like a backyard.
