Charlotte Wedding Planner | {Styled} Shabby Chic Bridal Shower Picnic | Inspiration to Reality






















The fun part of my job is thinking of new and creative ways to throw an event. I start brainstorming with pencil and paper, then I usually create an inspiration board on Pinterest. Bringing it to reality is the exciting part!

Inspiration can come from all places. I had an idea for a shabby chic bridal shower, but I took it a step further and created a picnic. Perfect for Spring, right? I discovered an awesome venue,  The Oaks Events, and gathered some of my favorite vendor friends and we put together this fun and refreshing styled shoot! We laughed and laughed some more and that is exactly what I would envision the guests at this bridal shower would do. It's all about having fun and creating memories!

I challenged myself for this shoot to see how many vintage items I could find at Goodwill. What a treasure hunt! You'd be surprised, about 95% of the items you see I purchased 2nd hand, with the exception of a couple of items borrowed from my mom.

A huge thanks goes out to all of the vendors that played a part in this shoot!

Each guests would have their only little basket to put their food items in.






I absolutely adore this tree swing.
