Once spring comes to an end and summer is upon us, pastel colors are always on trend. There’s just something so great about a color scheme with light pink, a hint of mint, and a bold splash of gold. This Kentucky Derby Bridal Shower is the perfect outdoor party theme! For many, the Kentucky Derby serves as the kick off for a great summer, and using that event as inspiration for this bridal shower is absolutely brilliant.

These ladies dressed in pastels and wide brimmed hats for a special celebration outdoors. The vintage-inspired table settings, the bright floral arrangements, and the perfect locale come together wonderfully. And that elegant dessert table? The combination of a beautiful layer cake, decorated bottles and striped straws, and the addition of some garland flair is so simple, yet stunning. With details of lace, gold, and stunning flower bouquets, the party stylist certainly executed a great vision.
