Blush Pink and Gold Bridesmaids Luncheon

Tis the season for weddings! Recently, the time has come in my life that my close friend’s children are starting to marry and have babies. How is this happening already?! A couple of weeks ago, I had the great honor of co-hosting a Bridesmaids “Bruncheon” for a very special young lady in our lives. Today, I am sharing all of the details for the Blush Pink and Gold Bridesmaids Luncheon we hosted for our sweet girl, Alex.

This particular young lady has been in my life since the first day she was born. Amazingly, it feels like only a few years ago that I was holding her in my arms minutes after she was born. I went to high school with her father in Dallas and then his future wife became one of my closest friends. Happily, I actually had the great pleasure of being a bridesmaid in their wedding, so you can easily get the picture of the history and closeness we share.

Mother of the Bride & the Bride!

Not only did I get to watch the bride grow up, but she also followed in a few of the other hostesses footsteps by attending our alma mater, Baylor University, AND pledged our sorority (Tri Delta) as well! Can you imagine our glee?!

Initially, our first step was to learn from our bride the color palette of her wedding. Since the luncheon was the day before the wedding, it was important for us to coordinate the aesthetics of the event with the theme of her wedding. Blush pink it was!!

The Invitations

Alex is a simple, gorgeous young lady and we wanted the invitations to reflect her and her personality. We quickly landed on these beautiful Sparkling Fern invitations by Minted. The invitations set the tone for the event, especially in terms of the formality of the party but also for the decor.

One of my favorite features within Minted is that you can input the guest’s names and addresses into their website and they will address the envelopes for you for FREE! Additionally, they use the coordinating fonts and colors for the envelopes which adds such an elegant touch.

The Location

Having spent quite a bit of time at my parent’s country club in Dallas, Prestonwood Country Club, I knew it would be a perfect central location for all of the members of the bridal party. Plus, I had scouted some of their party rooms during a prior visit there for dinner. The gold wallcoverings would provide such a lovely backdrop for our blush pink theme.

The room looks over the golf course and provided a delightful setting for a summer bridal event.

The Set-up

Since we hosted the luncheon at the Club, the tables, chairs, basic linens, and serving ware were included. We rented the chair covers to clean up the look and purchased and rented the organza gold overlays and pink sashes.

To create a cohesive and dramatic look, I decided to have the tables placed in a double row for added width for our 24 guests. The gold organza overlays added a little bit of elegance and helped bring the wall color over to the table in a very subtle way. Since it was my intention to have the flowers be the star of the show, we tied in the pink with the organza sashes on the chairs offering a nice touch of soft color.

The gold beaded chargers were the perfect base for the place settings and coordinated so well with the features of the room. Using a simple white napkin kept the look clean and simple.

The Flowers

Based on the scale and length of the table, the centerpiece needed to be impactful. I engaged the talents of Jayes Floral Creations to create the floral designs for our event. Elongated arrangements helped spread the flowers throughout the table so beautifully.

The gold compote containers were a perfect choice to work with the backdrop. I commissioned Jaye to create arrangements with multiple shades of pink, white and gold to tie everything together. In addition, we made sure to incorporate some ferns into the florals since they were prominent on the invitations.

The Food & Drinks

We started our event at 11 AM so we actually intended for the luncheon to be a “Bruncheon” of sorts. Hence, the idea of featuring a donut wall. What young person doesn’t love a donut?!

Notice the color coordination! I have sourced some similar boards below. It was a big hit!

A mimosa bar is a must for any brunch!

For the first course, we served a mixed greens salad with candied pecans, goat cheese, and dried cranberries.

For the entree, Green Tea Crusted Salmon was the foundation of the main course. We included fruit and a potato hash since the meal was a combination of breakfast and lunch.

No need to serve dessert since we had a large selection of donuts for the ladies!

Other details of our Blush Pink and Gold Bridesmaids Luncheon

Place cards should certainly be used for events such as this. For our party, we included the relationships with the bride so our guests would be able to better know their table mates.

If you are up to speed with new trends in parties especially with the younger folks, photo walls are becoming increasingly popular. My best friend and fellow hostess put ours together and the girls loved it! Here are a few fun shots our photographer, Michelle Rice, caught in front of the photo wall.


There are no words to express how special it was to honor Alex and have this time with her as she starts this amazing journey with the man of her dreams. We hostesses (her “other mommas”) certainly shed a few tears that weekend!

It was also such a pleasure to share the hostessing with my dear friends Jill, Diane and Anya (unable to attend). We all share equal passion and love for our dear bride and the amazing young woman she has become!
