When Kelly Lemon asked if I wanted to help spoil her brides at her annual KLP Pampered Bride Party, I immediately said yes! Kelly had this idea of getting some of her past and present brides in one room for them not only to bond, but just for a fun night! The champagne was flowing along with several light appetizers.
The focus of the party was a floral workshop with Studio 3 Floral. The brides learned a lot of the basics about flowers (like who knew you shouldn’t buy flowers that are sold next to fruit?) and then made their own arrangements. These girls rocked it and created some beautiful pieces! After the floral workshop, we had a small break for desserts and to reset. I then gave a quick tutorial on setting a table and a lot of the etiquette that goes behind it.
Quick Tip for the rest of our readers who couldn’t attend: Sometimes when you sit down at a formal table, the plates are close together. If you’re confused about which bread plate is yours, make a “b” or an “ok” with your hands. The hand that makes the “b” is your bread plate! i.e. it’s on the left.
The brides were so sweet and it was such an amazing thing to watch these past and former brides bond. Many of them exchanged numbers, which is so sweet!
As far as the design for the party went, we wanted to incorporate Kelly Lemon’s brand which happened to be charcoal gray, light gray, white, gold and green accents. We designed everything with this in mind. We left the greens in the floral but included gray table cloths, gold flatware and gold rimmed glassware, beautiful white and silver plates, with geo, gold and white accent throughout.
It was a fun affair and we can’t wait to help host another dinner party!
