Isn’t being engaged such a fun time?

There’s the big day to plan for, of course, but there are also a slew of other super fun events – like the bridal shower + bachelorette party – that you and your close pals get to dream up as well! Today’s real bridal shower, planned for a very lucky bride-to-be named Lana is such fun inspo for any upcoming events you may have.

The bride is getting married in Santa Barbara in a couple months and the wedding will have a feel of rustic and Spanish. So naturally we leaned toward doing a fiesta theme for her shower, but then we took it a little further and focused on the desert and let the cactus be my inspiration.

I integrated a natural, or blush pink into the rustic greens and then the party was born. My favorite parts about the party are all the parts really, but to break down a few about the decor are how the copper chairs popped against the white linens and the rustic little Spanish lounge we threw together with Adore Folklore. The unique flowers and cacti MV Florals used, with the soft and pretty mixture of table top from the Hostess Haven. And the invites and desserts were also just so good!

We’re loving the palette of copper, peach + pale desert green!

Beverly’s Bakery whipped up a super simple, but yummy-looking, cake and the cutest cactus-adorned cookies for the event.

And how pretty do these cocktails look with those cactus stirrers by Jen and Jules Designs? Love, love!
