Mini Champagne Bottles
Serve mini champagne bottles as guests arrive. Nothing says cheers like a personalized bubbly as you enter the door. Serve with hangtags that have hearts or love notes!

Pink Peonies and Roses
Make floral arrangements of pink peonies and pink spray roses. I always start by choosing a few (minimum of three flowers) all in the same shade of pink. If you need a bouquet filler, baby's breath is perfect for any any empty spots in your arrangement and is always available for a great price.

A Stylish Bar Cart
Decorate a bar cart, which can double as the perfect place for gifts! Whether you hang banners or place pretty flowers, bar carts are the perfect piece to decorate. Here, Gluck laid of bed of eucalyptus around a bevy of rose cocktails. Fun accents like bright books and pink straws are great for decorating the space!

Serve pink cocktails at your shower—rose wine is a must! Rose with a splash of elderflower liquor or lavender liquor is the perfect light fruity blend for spring. Don't forget a pretty garnish like lemons, limes, or even edible flowers which can be bought at Whole Foods.

A Seasonal Menu
Choose a seasonal menu, like watermelon and feta salad for spring or summer. Skewers are great for presentation and for easy munching!
