A Paris themed Bridal Shower
and How I made it Bespoke!
Let’s begin with the word Bespoke, if you haven’t heard this word lately and the word is not yet in your vocabulary.
I am enclosing the meaning: be·spoke bəˈspōk/1.past of bespeak. adjective Britsh 1.(of goods, especially clothing) made to order.”a bespoke suit”(of a trader) creating made-to-order goods.”bespoke tailors”.
I am not British for those of you who don’t know me! My fondness of travel and having been to England, plus my ability and passion to create one of a kind events makes the word “Bespoke” perfect for me to use. For those who witnessed the fairly recent Royal Wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex better known as Harry & Meaghan would know that this was a fabulous example of a Bespoke Event. The Florals and arches created by ‘self taught’ florist Phillippa Craddock were exquisite. She is an amazing example of having a natural creative ability and using it to establish a successful business.
I was recently approached to create a Bespoke “Bridal Shower” Event for a Beautiful soon to be Bride. The theme came from the Bride and her invitations which were Paris inspired. Paris being one of my favourite cities, made this event extra fun to Design. So, now we transport you to Paris!
Fun fact: Did you know:The average travel time between London and Paris is 2h20 minutes. The quickest route is 2h16 minutes. The first train leaving London is at 05:40, the last at 20:31. There is an average of 16 trains a day between London and Paris, leaving approximately every 57 minutes.
Adding Customized Bespoke Designs like this Eiffel Tower made of Moss and my Beautifully sourced faux florals added a very special and unique back drop for the Head table.
Guests were greeted with a touch of Bespoke Paris Fashion Inspiration. I customized fresh florals with details inspired by a favourite French Couturière and Paris based Fashion Design house.
We went with tones of Pink as the Colour theme throughout; from the customized Fresh and Faux Floral Arrangements we designed and made, to the overlays on tables we brought in. It made this Bridal Shower feel girly, pretty, and fun!
Yes I do!
For those who have been wondering if I do Floral Arrangements? As an extension of my services rendered and creative abilities I am adding florals to my repertoire. “Florals for your Interiors” is how I like to refer to this extension of my business.
Wait! there is more to come…
I create Props! and in this case the Photo Booth and Props.
Of Course, I would create Props I have created many in my lifetime. I managed to capture these candid photos of the bridal party using the Photo Booth and Props which I feel tell a very compelling story.
Love this Moment!
Last but not least was the Pièce de rèsistance…
the Dessert Table
or in this case Dessert Cart and Floral Market!
Sourcing out a special vendor (Sweethearts Sugar Carts) and customizing details
(like the Bride noticing the pricing in her personal and customized Floral Market was in Euros )
Is how I added special touches that truly made this Bridal Shower Event
