DIY Country Bridal Shower

Country Bridal Shower

You must be wondering “how did you come up with the creative idea of an elegant-styled country bridal shower?” Well as you know by now, I have a hankering for DIY projects and event decor, so I was super excited when I received this lovely linen from Linen Tablecloth and was told I could have my way with it!

Linen Tablecloth’s – Spring Harvest Tablecloth

I loved the pattern and lace trim of this quality linen, which definitely had an orchard or barn-like country flair, so I decided to create an elegant country bridal shower DIY tablescape using this lovely patterned linen as the base and as inspiration for the decor. My goal was to develop a unique tablescape that could be utilized in both indoor and outdoor settings with a down-home country and elegant rustic feel to it. In order to compliment the gorgeous linen, I went with a navy blue and white color palette infused with gold accents (chargers, candlestick holders, glitter, paint, ribbon and sequins) and tan elements (wood, burlap, and twine). What’s amazing about this elegant country theme is that it would be perfect for a Spring, Summer, or Fall bridal shower, wedding, or baby shower (changing a few elements)! In the end it all came together beautifully, just as I had pictured in my head, and Natalie Henderson did an amazing job capturing all of the minute lovely details that went into this DIY Country Bridal Shower!

#4 Bushel Barrel Aisle Markers
Plain wooden bushel barrels are extremely inexpensive. Spray paint them a sienna color and fill with potted Mums (in this case they added red and green cabbages) and put at the start of the aisle.

#5 Rustic Wedding Party Introductions
A great way to introduce your wedding party is to have them enter the reception venue and lead into a choreographed square dance or line dance.

#6 Engagement Photos with a Rustic Feel
Have your engagement photo be a take off of the famous painting American Gothic, as seen below.

#7 Amber Twinkle Lights for Rustic Wedding Decor
Instead of white twinkle lights, use amber brown ones around pillars, tree trunks or strung between barn rafters. They are the same color as beer bottles.
