A Summer Bridal Shower, Williams-Sonoma Style

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

Here’s a suggestion: Put away your pastels and go for a sunny, earthy Tuscan-Provencal vibe for your summer bridal shower. We’re thinking glistening olives, crunchy crostini, sparkling Prosecco, lavender crème brulee. We’re thinking shades of briny blue and vibrant yellow, pure cotton table linens and natural-fiber accessories. We’re thinking these seasonal lovelies will get you thinking what we’re thinking. All from Williams-Sonoma.

LolliBrides

LolliBrides

We’ve covered
boxed invitations, feather-accented invitations, message-in-a-bottle invitations, sculptural-floral invitations, video invitations…and now, chocolate invitations!

LolliBrides from Naturally Gifted in Yorktown Heights, N.Y., are 8 ½-inch-tall, 2-ounce chocolate lollipops dressed in gorgeously colorful strapless ball gowns complete with tulle overlays and ribbon sashes. These edible lovelies are available in milk or white chocolate and come in a range of juicy gown colors including Gem Peridot, Gem Citrine and Gem Pink (when you order online, you’ll have to send a separate e-mail specifying which colors you want, and how many of each). Personalized labels let you customize your LolliBrides for your occasion, whatever it may be.

We especially love LolliBrides for bridal showers…as invites, place-setting favors, take-home centerpieces, game prizes, dessert—you name it. Truly unique, truly gorgeous, truly WEDDING. Here comes the LolliBride!

Shower Favor Idea: The Soap & Paper Factory

You may want to pass this post along (subtly) to whoever’s planning your shower, Houston bride. Trust us, she’ll be glad you did.

The Soap & Paper Factory makes natural scented beeswax candles, stationery, soaps, bath powders and more, then wraps their paraben-free, phthalate-free yummies in eco-friendly, recyclable, totally beautiful packaging.

Soap & Paper Solid Perfume

We especially love S&P’s solid perfumes—little travel-size, purse-size pots filled with heavenly fragrance in solid form. Made from pure jojoba and beeswax, in aromas including Jasmine, Gardenia and Orange Blossom, S&P’s solid perfumes make great take-home goodies for girls of all ages. And they’re pretty enough to fit right in on an all-dolled-up tabletop.

We’re also fans of S&P’s divine scented beeswax candles, packaged in elegant Italian glass, which can be cleaned and reused for water, wine or your favorite Chardonnay. Yay!

Looking for something special for your bridesmaids’? The Soap & Paper Factory does amazing custom gifts, too.
