Best Day Ever: Glamorous Black + Floral Bridal Shower

‘Tis the season for bridal showers aplenty, which probably in part explains why I was so excited to hear from Melissa at Cacao Sweets and Treats in Chicago, sharing this gorgeous glam black floral inspired wedding shoot. Designed around the ever popular dessert and cake buffet, Melissa played off of a few of my favorite design elements when creating this beautiful spread – gold, black, floral, stripes and loads of glamorous little details. So lovely, don’t you think? Add in heaps of bite-sized sweet treats, a bit of bubbly, perfectly coordinated stationery and stunning flowers and you’ve got a hit with me. So whether you’re planning a bridal shower for your best lady or daydreaming about your upcoming wedding, this one is for you!
