Happy Friday! I am so happy to share this amazing Pink Pick Up Truck Party styled by Abigail of Paper and Cake. I have been a huge fan of Paper and Cake for a long time and when Abigail asked me to be part of the Operation Shower event she was coordinating I jumped at the chance to work with her. This party is really on of my all time favorites. The theme is so unique and I love the mix of crisp clean printables with the vintage styling. I am hoping my daughter’s want a party like this someday. (not too soon)
Have you ever heard of a Bridesmaids Ask? Well, its exactly as it sounds… a party or event you throw in honor of your Bridesmaid hopefuls, asking them to be a part of your special day. What better way to ask them to take this journey with you than to “Ride Shotgun” with you?!
This party has everything a girl could want: Pink. Check. Retro. Check. Pickup Truck…. ok that might be a special kind of girl, but its so stinkin cute, who wouldn’t love it?! We began with one thing, a darling illustration of a vintage Pink Pickup Truck. We knew a vintage-retro feel was ultimately what we wanted to achieve so we incorporated some modern patterns and shabby-chic elements and it all came together perfectly.
No party is ever complete without an over the top dessert table! Vintage serve ware and old tin cans created a base for some delish items like, Berry Trail Mix, Ombre Pink Cupcakes, Cotton Candy Lollipops, Chocolate Mousse Cups, and Kettle Corn. The highlight of the tablescape was by far the matching fondant Pink Pickup Truck sitting atop a rustic homemade layer cake.
After their luncheon, our Bridesmaids each went home with a personalized wooden Pickup Truck key chain and a spot in our lucky girl’s wedding. This Pink Pickup Truck party was the perfect “girly” and intimate setting for the bride-to-be to ask her favorite girls to Ride Shotgun with her on her special day.
