It’s spring time in Paris. The flowers are blooming, the champagne is flowing, the Eiffel Tower is radiant, and you’re engaged! How could it be any better? Well, I guess I should clarify- we weren’t exactly IN Paris. But, we sure made this event feel like you were there. Here’s how we pulled off this “Springtime in Paris” Bridal shower for our very own “Belle”, Olivia!
As you entered the shower, you were greeted by a large Eiffel Tower atop a white candlelit café table. Everything about this entry way just screams “PARIS”!!!
Flower arrangements constructed and provided by Two Belles Event Planning
Make your way through the entryway, the flower theme continues.
How fabulous is this vintage birdcage display of flowers?
Two Belles is ALL about details. Big and small. No detail will go unnoticed! We collaborated with our bride to make sure her shower was everything she hoped it would be!
You KNOW we love a good monogram! Monogrammed chargers were a gift from a bridesmaid. We wanted to have a fun game for guests to enjoy without putting them on the spot. We created a personalized “Bride & Groom Mad Lib” for them to fill out! The bride and groom had some good laughs post shower!
Keep Calm & Love Paris
Check your diet at the door, the French-inspired, mouth-watering food at this party was sure to tip your scale a little. Ok, a lot. I must say, it was worth every calorie!

How “Springtime in Paris” were these flowers? Obsessed.

Let’s be honest, we live in the South. It’s always acceptable to drink. Even on Sundays. So, we had a Champagne “Bubbly” Bar and it was a huge hit!
Whether you want fruit, Chambord Raspberry Liqueur, or orange juice, you had plenty of choices here!
Streamer and Pinwheel backdrop for the Champagne Bar
DIY Chalkboard platters, flowers, pearls, and candles!
