{Fabulous Real Party} Hollywood Glam Bridal Shower

August 30th, 2010 in bridal shower ideas, manzanita trees, real party
Happy Monday!
This past weekend I had the honor of co-hosting a bridal shower for one of my very best friends.  The bridal party worked together to create a spectacular event for her.  Of course I volunteered to do the décor for the event, I actually volunteered for another area initially and my friends looked at me like I was crazy.  So of course I obliged and took décor as my area.  I was inspired by the old Hollywood glam theme so I choose to do red and gold combinations.  It was truly beautiful.    I got the “Ebony, you’ve outdone yourself!” several times. So I was happy that everyone was pleased with my vision. 
I chose to use Manzanita trees for this shower.  I have seen these with the crystals and had been dying to do them, so this was the perfect opportunity.  I think that they came out beautiful and the bride to be and all of the guest truly loved them.  I love  to use bling and sparkles at a bridal shower, it just seems so fitting. 
Maggiano’s catered the delicious food.  Yum Yum Good!   The favors were customized wine glasses that we tagged with a sparkling gold paper scalloped tags. 


Just gorgeous!
