Olivia Lin caught my eye on Instagram with this photo and the rest of the details are just as delicate and exquisite!
“This was my first time throwing a bridal shower and I was SUPER excited! The bride-to-be loves her cup of tea so a tea party theme instantly came to mind. She had offered to let us have it at her home, and I really liked the idea of bringing the garden feel indoors for her special day.
Deciding the theme was the easy part- now came the fun and challenging part of figuring out all the different decor elements! I say challenging because there are a MILLION ideas out there and it’s hard to narrow it down! I decided on decorating the party with the medium I have been working most with- paper. It’s colorful, light weight, inexpensive, and can be reused or eventually recycled.
I love Pinterest and how inspiration and tutorials are just a click away, but I think the trick is to take something you saw and put your own twist or touch on it! After a week of trying out different ideas, cutting out petals, twisting, hot glue gunning, and having tissue paper in shades of green everywhere, it was time to get everything to Emi’s and put it all together.
I think that’s when the magic really happens when you see an idea in your head come to life! It was great watching all the elements come together and am really happy I got to be a part of this event! At the end of the day the bride had a wonderful time at her shower which was the most important part!
