Flower Friday: Kara's Bridal Shower

Events by LMG shared this darling Sundance bridal shower with us and we loved every detail! Well designed and perfectly suited for its venue this shower was planned out the only way LMG knows how to do it, no detail forgotten and well designed! We especially liked the darling floral works here, those blooms add some femininity to this environment and so perfect for a bridal shower, so we thought it well to share this with you on a flower Friday. Mara with Events by LMG joins us with some floral & design insight.

One of my main focuses when planning a bridal shower is to remain conscious of the tone and formality of the wedding itself, in an effort not to upstage or compete with it. It’s often important that rehearsals and bridal showers feel more informal than the wedding itself, as the wedding should be the star of the show in regard to the many events that surround the celebration of the marriage. Kara Steiner’s shower was no exception. Although we absolutely aimed to create a gorgeous and special environment for her bridal shower, we worked to keep the décor simple and wanted to be sure we complimented the natural surroundings without distracting from the gorgeous natural surrounding Sundance offers. 
 
Sundance Resort’s Wasatch Room lent itself as the perfect intimate setting for Kara’s shower. The Wasatch Room is a great single-room cabin tucked in Sundance Resort’s mountainsides that offers a back deck area, windows on all sides and a fireplace mantle begging for fun décor. I worked with Shelly Huynh of Orchid Dynasty to create simple clusters of single floral stems paired with succulents beneath glass cloches, all atop cut tree stumps.
 
In addition to our table centerpieces, I also just adore the moss initials Orchid Dynasty created for above the fireplace. The initials were a fun décor element at the shower, and are really sturdy so they can be used at the wedding as well. Initials are always fun photo props too! 
 
Airplants in small mercury glass votives served as both place cards, and guest favors.
 
A non floral décor element that has to be recognized is the chalkboard and hand painted menu Saucy and Kitsch did for us. Although it doesn’t include any real floral elements, the hand-painted garland motif was the perfect accent to our overall event design.
