A Purple/Geode Themed Bridal Shower



Two weekends ago I hosted a bridal shower for one of my best friends from college, Audrey. Using my past wedding planner chops I of course DIY'd the entire thing- so let me show you!

My favorite detail was the handmade welcome sign. I made this using a couple pieces of plywood, hinges to attach them at the top, and then a planter box drilled onto the front.

I spray painted the entire thing white, used tracing paper to transfer the design, then painted over it with acrylic paint. After that I added floral foam into the planter box and popped in a ton of flowers. I set it by the front door to welcome all the guests into the shower!

Once inside I transformed the living room into a geode/crystal wonderland of sorts- I swapped out the art on the Frame TV, bought these purple velvet pillows and these purple geode-esque pillows from Amazon and swapped out the pillows on the sofas.

Peep the unfinished mural project I'm still working on. I used my 11 year old Phoenix's rock collection (and bought a few more) to sprinkle geodes and crystals pretty much everywhere. And again using my old wedding planner skills created a bunch of floral arrangements to sprinkle around the house.

For food I wanted to keep it simple and easy. I did this huge layered charcuterie board and then ordered several platters of sushi and dumplings from HEB. My friend Audrey is a big foodie so I wanted to do something that was a bit more fun and different than your typical bridal shower faire.

I also served Purple Haze cocktails. We went to a small school here in Texas (Stephen F. Austin State University) and one of our school traditions was that our cheering section at athletic events was called the Purple Haze, so this was a little throwback to that.

I also had rock candy nearby to add to the top of the cocktails! We used this cocktail recipe. They were delicious... and super cute.

I also froze some of the extra petals and flowers into these large ice cube trays to ice down the champagne.

For dessert Audrey isn't big on cake, but loves these airy cloud cakes from an Asian bakery here in Houston (Tous Du Jours for any of you locals) so we ordered several of those, I bought these geode cookies from Etsy (they were delicious!), and also had more rock candy, of course.

I used little floral foam cages on top of saucers to create these free form floral arrangements. I wanted the dessert table to look kind of like an unruly garden.

It turned out so pretty.

And then on the way out our guests could grab a Tiff's Treat chocolate chip cookie that I customized a bit by popping in a glassine bag and adding a custom sticker from Zazzle.

We all had so much fun and now we all cannot wait for the wedding! I love you Audrey!
