{Real Party} Black & White Damask with Fuchsia and Blue Bridal Shower

May 25th, 2010 in damask bridal shower, fuchsia, real party

Today I’m very excited to present pictures of the black and white damask bridal shower that I planned and styled a few weeks ago.  Last week I received my professional pictures from a fabulous new photographer, Chiantia Crews from Chiantia Photography.

This shower was truly a labor of love for many reasons.  The first reason is because it was for my baby sister! The second reason is that this was my first full production event since launching Sparkling Events & Designs, LLC in January.  So I put my heart and soul into it….. and I believe that it shows.  So for today, we will start will a little decor.  There are so many lovely details to this shower that I need to break it up.

I choose a location that was absolutely stunning to begin with great neutral background and beautiful finishings. For the decorations I choose black table linens with a black & white damask table runner and my partner (AKA mom) made this beautiful ruffled placemats out of fuchsia ribbon that completely popped against the black and white!

Of course a little sparkle….
We were inspired by the Gossip Girl shower from the HWTM and my mom made these ruffled placemats. She is awesome! 

Stay tuned for more pictures and more details tomorrow!
