We continue the theme here with a striped tablecloth, gold silverware and chargers, black plates, pink bow napkins, a gorgeous pink flower arrangement, gold confetti, and some candles. If you’re having just a few guests, a round table or two will be able to seat everyone so that most guest can talk to each other. I prefer round tables for a brunch, since it gives a sense of intimacy among guests.

For a lunch/ late brunch, or for more than just a few guests, a long rectangle table will give a striking and more modern look. Though the colors are the same between this and the last table, the vibe is more upscale and elegant with gold crystal, votives, and candle stands. See more of this table from an Intimate Cabo San Lucas Beach Wedding on Style Me Pretty.

And don’t forget the DIY touches that bring it all together. If you’re concerned about a glittery mess getting everywhere, add a bit of glitter to the water in a clear flower vase. You’ll get a pop of sparkle without the mess.

Games to Get Your Guests Involved

If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, pearls must be close behind. Buy some plastic diamonds and oversized pearls from your local craft store like Hobby Lobby and put them in a cute container.

Birds of a Feather- Gone Pink!

I am absolutely in love with this Flamingo Pop bridal shower shoot by The House That Lars Built collaborating with BHLDN!
