This Fall Harvest Bridal Shower was held for our very own favorite administrative assistant here at Matlack Florist, Stephanie! After having worked with Stephanie for a year and a half at the shop, I was honored when she asked me to be a part of her bridal party, and so excited to plan a bridal shower with my fellow bridesmaids!
Here is Stephanie in her office hard at work:
To celebrate this autumn-loving bride-to-be, we planned a shower to fit the season with a Fall Harvest theme. We used a lot of our own personal items from home and added festive touches of fall to each item for the shower!
This miniature-sized ladder (right) was decorated using cardstock cut into pennant shapes (which were attached to the ladder using decorative washi tape), letter-shaped stickers to read “Fall in Love” and finished off with autumn leaves!
The bridal shower umbrella (below) was decorated with faux fall leaves as well to incorporate it into the theme!
Each centerpiece was created using a different element of fall. This woven basket tray was filled with gourds and jack-be-little mini pumpkins.
This tablescape consisted of a fairytale pumpkin topped with a gathering of Indian Corn centered between 2 glass cube vases filled with mini Indian corn.
A pinecone forest tablescape was created using pinecones gathered from the backyard and placed into painted terra cotta pots of varying sizes. (One of the benefits of working at a florist is never having to want for terra cotta pots! These pots have been collecting on my patio from gardening projects throughout the year.)
Fall grasses, also gathered from the great outdoors, were arranged in tin cans of various sizes that were decorated with a mix of satin ribbon, raffia and leaves!
Apples, Pears and Seeded Eucalyptus fill this handled wooden box.
And what’s a party without flowers!? This antique wooden box was arranged with fall flowers in an ombre-style design, moving down the line from whites, oranges, yellows, reds to vibrant purples.
A bridal shower isn’t complete without some bridal-themed games! The guests at Stephanie’s shower competed to see who knew the bride-to-be best! And while Stephanie was opening her gifts, the guests played Bridal BINGO! The winners of the games took home gorgeous gifts to add to their own fall decor – one took home a beautiful purple mum tied with a full burlap bow, and one took home the Fairytale pumpkin adorned with Indian Corn (which was part of the Indian Corn table centerpiece).
Cards for Stephanie were gathered in this birdcage, decorated with ribbon and faux flowers (a gathering of green hydrangea, brown peony and white berries).
We’re so happy for Stephanie and had so much fun celebrating her upcoming nuptials! Wishing her all the best as she begins a new life as a Mrs!
