I swear I have thrown more showers in the last two years than I ever could have imagined. Mike and I each come from families of four children, and literally everyone got married and had kids at the same time! SO. MANY. PARTIES. But they are the best kind of parties, right?! Earlier this month I worked with my sisters-in-law to throw a bridal shower for Mike’s youngest sister. Her wedding will be lavender with lots of green, so I decided to stick to that with the shower, and I loved how it turned out! Keep scrolling to see all of the photos below, and where to find everything will be listed at the bottom of the post!
Lavender and Eucalyptus Bubbly Bar Details
I love nothing more than a good mimosa bar. I did a similar one at my sister’s bachelorette party, and had so many of the items on hand anyway that it made sense to do another one. Let me tell you, it was a hit! There is never a time where people will not want a mimosa, and it was fun to watch people mix up different varieties. I love these stemless champagne flutes because they still feel elegant, but are also much less likely to get broken 😉 The sequin tablecloth is from Amazon and comes in every color under the sun! Most of the other items are from either Target or Hobby Lobby, and super affordable!

We kept the rest of the menu simple, with fruit and yogurt parfait shooters, this delicious egg slider recipe, and lots of mini muffins and snack cakes from Sam’s Club.
I had these little shot glasses left over from my sister’s bachelorette party, and they were perfect for mini parfaits. I grabbed some mini gold spoons for them and it is so much less messy than having people make their own!
These darling plates, silverware, and paper straws were all generously gifted for this party from Coterie.
My father in law made this planter box for our mantle a few years ago, and I LOVE it. I always have flowers in it, which hides all of Mike’s cords for the TV 😉 It was easy to decorate by swapping out my florals for lots of lavender and eucalyptus stems. I swap this box out every few months (or more, when fall/winter holidays roll around!) It is one of my favorite pieces because it is a part of our every day décor but can so easily be switched out to match any event we have going on!
The Best Invitations
I swear Mixbook is a hidden gem for party invitations. I have used them for our holiday cards, our wedding programs, and now these invitations. Their prices are unbeatable, and the quality is fantastic! And a feature that they offer that most other print websites do not is color customization. I was able to pick every last color for my wedding programs! It allows so much more flexibility in getting exactly what you envision for an invitation or card, and like I said, their prices are SO good!
Lots of florals and this adorable crate are all from hobby lobby! All of the white hydrangeas that you see are all fresh cut from my mom’s bushes in front of her house 🙂 Over the past few years, I have continued to pick up fake florals for different parties, holidays, etc. I have now reached the point where I have so many color combinations, I feel like I am ready for just about anything! My absolute favorite addition over the past year has been lots of eucalyptus-it is so in style but more importantly, it goes with everything!
Thank you for reading all of the details on this lavender and eucalyptus bridal shower. I have learned over the last year or two that once you start hosting parties and collecting items (like a huge bin of fake flowers) it becomes so easy to pull together!
