Whenever my friend, Cindy Gatewood, hosts a shower, I know it is going to be amazing. I am IN LOVE with this Anthropologie-inspired bridal shower Cindy hosted (along with several other very talented ladies) for bride-to-be, Jill.
The party was captured by the talented Angela Francis of Bella-Smile Photography.
The setting was perfect. The luncheon was held at BRIO Tuscan Grille in the new City Centre here in Houston. The gathering took place on the outdoor patio which lent for a neutral and organic space.
What I love about this party are all of the handmade details. The hostesses styled the tables themselves along with all of the centerpieces. Don't you love the baby's breath arrangements?! The ladies purchased fabrics and went to work creating table runners, napkin rings, favor ties and even the apron on the mannequin. Yes! The apron was made by one of the hostesses which I could not believe!
The favor table was precious and perfectly styled!
My good friend, Hayley Hardcastle, designed all of the gorgeous paper products including the favor table sign.
Another amazing handmade detail besides the napkin rings seen above are the vases. All of the vases were spray painted and a few were stenciled with a beautiful floral pattern!
The table with aprons tied to the chairs was the reserved table for Jill and her family. The lucky ladies got to take home the Anthropologie aprons as a gift!
The specialty drink of the day was a "Jill-Ini"...a nod to the bride's name which is Jill. CUTE!
Cindy and her talented friends handcrafted a gorgeous shower for Jill that I am sure she will always remember! Congratulations to Jill on her upcoming wedding THIS weekend!
