When ever I get the chance to talk with our customers I always ask them to send me pictures of their events. These pictures were sent to me by Tara Hooper from San Diego who recently hosted a "Betty Boop" inspired Bridal Shower. I definitely think the party turned out really cute. The bride absolutely loves Betty Boop so she really wanted to honor her love for Betty Boop by sticking with the traditional Betty Boop colors of Red & Black. She used the Ritz Martini Vases along with the White Plume Feather Collars and Silver Mirrored Balls to create that old school Hollywood Glamour look.
Her place settings were done with a Red Charger, standard white plate and our Black Vine Inspired Salad/Side Plates. She used simple white napkins and a combination of black & silver mirrored napkin rings to give the place setting an extra bit of star quality.
I love that she served Pick Me Up's in Champagne glasses in keeping with her theme. For that extra added enchantment she sprinkled the table with small glass stones and little rhinestones. She spread a handful of the mirrored balls on the tables just to add depth and interest.
She also decorated each of the tables with these simple red fishbowl vases and red roses for that extra hint of love and romance in the day.
Great Party, Tara! I hope the Bride enjoyed it as much as we have enjoyed the pictures you sent us.
