Nautical and Starfish Inspired Bridal Shower

There are many bridal blogs in the blogosphere that focus strictly on pictures for inspiration. Ordinarily, the MBA Bride is not one of them. But it is worth showing how a shower can end up once MBA skills are used to help plan them. Leveraging project planning, budget management, effective marketing skills, and brainstorming techniques can create beautiful results.

I’m proud of the work that the bridal party and I did for my best friend’s bridal shower and want to share the images from the shower with loyal MBA Bride readers.

So for a change from the ordinary tips and tricks, please enjoy the images below.

A bridal archway, a crafty etsy starfish banner, some home made pomanders, and gifts decorated the front of the room.


Centerpieces featured candles, shells, sandcastles, and upside down mason jars with pictures of the bride and groom from their engagement photo session. All of which placed on an apple green table runner.


Place settings ffeatured a bamboo stitched placement with usual brunch utensils. The typical place setting was further decorated by a bride cookie with a bright blue bow, candy eggs featuring the bride’s new last initial, and a napkin with a countdown until the bride’s wedding with a starfish at the center.


Each table was set banquet style with 8 chairs for a more intimate experience. The chairs had apple green chair sashes to compliment the table runner and napkins on the table.


A beautiful red velvet foundant cake with canoli and strawberry filling was served. The cake featured starfish and shell chocolates along with a papasan chair. The invitation to the bridal shower was subtly placed behind the cake in a round jar.


The wishing well, ordained in lace, had two brightly colored pomanders to bring the consistent color theme to the party.


The room featured a beautiful fireplace, which was decorated with shell garland, a jar of shells, nautical cake toppers, upside down lace umbrellas, and four freestanding candle holders. The bridal chair was covered in white chair covering and completed with an apple green sash across the back.


The venue featured rich and dark wood shelves, which was decorated with shells and sandcastles.


The bridal shower in action.
