Pink Bridal Brunch Inspiration
I’m back with a second inspiration shoot – a bridal brunch – at Graffiato in Washington, DC. Did you see my rehearsal dinner inspiration at Graffiato? Since we were there for the day, it only made sense to design and document two different looks! You can see my rehearsal dinner inspiration here. Typically a bridal shower or bridal brunch will be a smaller group of ladies, so you have a lot of venue options available to you. It will just take a little bit of effort to make a restaurant table look special and thoughtful.
We started with a pink table runner as our base, and set a garland on top of it, nestling in small floral arrangements from Elegance & Simplicity. I used an assortment of garlands and banners to dress up the wall behind the table. I’m super grateful to Jess Latos for these great photos.
If the restaurant will permit, set up a welcoming sign to let your guests know that they are in the right place. Meant To Be Calligraphy made this sign for us!
We partnered with Carrie Ink again for this gorgeous bridal shower stationery set. Who wouldn’t love to receive this gorgeous pink box in the mail? More vintage postage from Verde Studio, along with a box liner and custom tag, and an RSVP card with an lined envelope.
I love being able to take something commonplace and put a twist on it to make it even more useful, and surprise your guests. We made the bridal brunch place cards large enough so that on the other side it was the menu card. Two birds, one stone!
Another easy way to spiff up your bridal shower tablescape is with a few accent rental pieces. DC Rental provided these pink napkins, gold rimmed charger plates and pink goblets for our inspiration here. This would probably cost you about $1 per piece, and you are allowed to pick up and return to their warehouse in Shirlington, eliminating the delivery fees.
