My sister and niece recently hosted a bridal shower for Lauren’s maid of honor, Becky. Becky is getting married soon and so they hosted the shower at my sister’s house. My sister is the queen of throwing parties and does a table up just right. When I saw how it was all decorated, I wanted to share it with all of you, since I know setting tables is an art and very inspirational when you see what can be done to make a table extra special.

She has a huge round table in her dining room with a burlap and fringe table cloth from Ballards, so everything was layered on top of that.
Hot Pink Crushed Velvet Fabric
Becky’s colors are hot pink, so they kept that in mind for the shower, using hot pink and white chevron napkins and a hot pink crushed velvet fabric draped on the table. Adding fresh flowers is always a plus and these deep pink roses make great accent on the table.
She uses boxes and books underneath to create risers, which gives the table dimension. Sections are higher than others and this makes the table very interesting to look at, so keep that in mind when you are setting up a party table.
She borrowed some decor in the potted topiaries, which add a lot of height to the table. Candles and white cherubs are also beautiful for the centerpiece. Quiche is a good offering for brunch menus. She got the quiche and scones at a local place, Vineyard Cafe in Marietta and the rest she made.
Ambrosia salad in cute glasses make a special presentation. That’s coconut on top.
Small Picture Frame
Using small picture frames and adding the menu offerings is a nice touch too, with spinach salad as one of them.
