This past Sunday, Always a Bridesmaid hosted a New York Fantasy Shower with Morgans’ Hotel in their AMAZING Penthouse. We wanted to host the event so that brides like you could have an afternoon to hang with the ladies in your wedding party, AND get some great ideas on how to make a bridal shower a little bit sleeker and just a wee bit sexier!
For starters, we picked a great theme: Naughty and Nice. Inspired by Agent Provocateur (who provided the gift bags) We used a pink and black color scheme and ran with it. To add to the decor, we wrapped “gifts” in the colors of the event- (hint, when hosting a shower, this is a great way to dress up the room!). We had an awesome location…. the weather was amazing and the views were out of this world. The Morgans’ provided lite bites via Asia de Cuba and Mark Joseph Cakes designed a cake around our theme that set the stage. Elana and Julie of Melangerie did an OUTRAGEOUS job of creating a guestbook , favors and signage to make the whole thing seem a little more special. For favors, they offered up a simple black scarf, but created these great display cards where it was either a “naughty” blindfold, or a very “nice” necktie. The guestbook were little fortunes for what you’d like the bride and groom to do “in bed”. Rather than use a paper plate hat, Anika from our team bought a cheapo Target sunhat and be-ribboned it (another simple upgrade).
We wanted to offer up some great activities/ ideas for activities, so we asked the Ladies from My Hair and Make Up to come and give make up lessons….. it’s a really fun way to do something a little different for a shower and they will come to your home to give a class. We also asked Jessy of Fleurs to come and give floral lessons… she taught some great DIY lessons for bouquet making and more to the ladies in attendance (as well as providing the gorgeous blooms). Here are some of the pics that Karen Mordechai took of the event!

No party is anything without great guests! I was amazed to see how many great ladies came out on this gorgeous day to enjoy the party! Here some of our guests sipping the great Pink Champagne cocktails, enjoying the terraces and grabbing up gift bags. The ladies from Always a Bridesmaid and the Morgans’ Group were greeting guests while they enjoyed some of the tastes and treats of the shower.
