Chanel Inspired Bridal Shower

We were so excited when Priscilla Lopez called us to plan a bridal shower with her mom for her sister in law to be Priscila Cano in El Paso, Texas. Priscila, the bride, is such a classic beauty so we decided she needed something classic and chic but still hip. That is when we decided a Chanel Inspired Shower was all to perfect! Priscilla’s last name was Cano so we decided to create a logo that we would use to brand through the entire shower, one that resembled the logo of Chanel.

At the entrance to their beautiful backyard was a gate that was embellished with a floral garland made up of hanging amaranths, antique hydrangeas, anemones, peonies and garden roses. Guest were given the option of a lovely rose name “Bubbly Lovely” or a Priscila Cano monogrammed water.

No detail was overlooked for this shower. Custom Macarons by Macaron’s by Patisse were made with the logo in different shades of pink that were placed in a bird cage at each place setting. The linens were by Elegant Beginnings . and the flowers were designed by Laura Carillo. We styled the wedding to show off the femininity of Chanel and Priscilla dainty darling personality.

Ardovino’s Dessert Crossing prepared a whimsical collection of seasonal food and herbs. Guest loved the quiche, spicy shrimp stuffed arancini’s, grilled cheese sandwiches, tomato soup, cucumber sandwiches, stuffed chicken and banana bread French toast.


Guest loved the drool-worthy mini cupcakes topped with Macaroons, Cake Pops and Couture Designed Cake by Manjar and perfume bottle cookie by Michael’s Cookie Jar.  Branded Cocktail Napkins, Stickers, Stirrers, and Water-bottles were designed by Katie & Co.

As every shower needs an ice breaker we decided on a perfume bar. Each box was custom made for each guest with their name on it and the date of the shower No. 12. Ladies were able to test their scents on samples and finish their custom scent in their very own bottle.
