Create a Garden-Inspired Bridal Shower

We’ve partnered with the wedding planning gurus from Elli.com for an inspirational guide to creating a beautiful garden-style bridal shower.

With wedding season in full swing, it’s time to start celebrating all the brides-to-be in your life! In this post, we’ll show you how to style a backyard garden-themed bridal shower with some of our favorite items from Tuesday Morning and our own online wedding shop at Elli.com.

Inspired by our own Chalkboard Floral bridal shower invitation, we found beautiful and affordable décor items at Tuesday Morning that perfectly complemented the look we were going for.

During this time of the year, there’s a huge selection of gardening supplies available. Taking advantage of this, we found the sweetest watering can and used it as a vase for the floral centerpiece. To coordinate with garden greens, we picked a soft green tablecloth and natural tone table runner, which really provided a lovely backdrop for all of the yummy goodies. We decorated the table with a festive “congrats” sign.

To display the lemon cake, we not only found a beautiful cake stand, but also snagged a fun chalkboard bin for it to sit on! We also used a bird feeder as a candy dish to hold yummy sweet treats.

And for guests to enjoy the goodies, we found these super-cute classic plates decorated with a chic gold pattern.

A garden-themed bridal shower isn’t complete without summery drinkware! We fell in love with this cute milk bottle set, the perfect way to serve seasonal drinks like lemonade or fruit-infused water.

These potted succulents are perfect for bridal shower favors. We actually painted the top of them to go with our theme and then added our own matching gift tags.

A must-have for every bridal shower is cute signage! We used this garden bird chalkboard sign to welcome guests.
