This sweet VINTAGE PARISIAN BRIDAL SHOWER was submitted by Jessica Boskoff of Twenty Three Layers.
This vintage Parisian theme not only makes a lovely bridal shower but would be perfect for a birthday party or baby shower too! A few of the ideas and elements I like best are:
- The fleur di lis shaped cookies
- The tulle pom poms
- The ornate shaped “i do” cupcake toppers
- The lace cupcake wrappers
- and MORE!

Here’s what Jessica said about the party
– “The theme of this Bridal Shower was Parisian- filled with tulle, lace and pearls. The colors focus on pinks and lavenders. The Dessert table was beautiful, and included different types of delicious desserts all in line with the Parisian Theme. Cake pops, macarons, Fleur Di Lis cookies, cupcakes and pink ombre mini cakes. There was an old vintage jewelry box with a strand of pearls hanging from the outside and a special surprise for the bride inside-a pair of beautiful diamond earrings! In front of the jewelry box were cupcakes in a jar that came with individual spoons so that guests could take it home with them. On the opposite side there was fresh pink lemonade on a stand with glass bottles that included pink paperer straws and custom labels for Emily’s Shower. The bottles were lined up on a white tra y. Hanging above the dessert table were different size tulle pom poms in light shades of pink and lavender.
The Tablescape settings were very feminine and had touches of a tea party. Each setting consisted of a tea cup and saucer, custom love note tags tied to the handle with lace and adorned with a pearl, a custom tea bag with the bride/groom monogram, as well as a pink journal with guests initials engraved on the bottom (teacup sat on top of the journal). Place card holders were quite unique- handmade clay macaroons with a slit for the name card to tuck into. The tables were covered in either a beautiful striped cloth to match the outer banquet cushions or lavender cloths for the center tables to match the beautiful parisian dessert table cloth which was adjacent. There were white milk glass bud vases lining the center of the tables filled with roses. In between the vases there were 2 small white cake stands on each table that had pink swirl cupcakes with edible pearls and handmade real lace cupcake wrappers. For takeaways, in addition to the journals and desserts, there were min i bottles of pink moscato with custom labels, detailed with a bow. Decor around the room included apothecary jars filled with solar rose heads, vintage books and old parisian suitcase boxes which housed the mini bottles of wine.”
