Brunch is a perfect option to celebrate becoming a Mrs – its lowkey, classy and most of all, gives you the opportunity to catch up with beloved friends and family over delicious food! This fun and feminine brunch organised by Coral & Co Events will give you plenty of inspiration when it comes to planning your own bridal shower. Inspired by soft, summer sorbet tones, we’re sharing Maeve’s bridal shower just in time for the warmer months ahead. Snapped by the incredible Liz Barnes Photo and Geena Glass, with quotes provided by Kelly Mills on behalf of Coral & Co Events.
The Flower District Bouquets
Wanting to fill the room with an abundance of flowers in glowing, summery shades, The Flower District nailed Coral and Co’s vision. “From popping anthuriums, to soft delicate roses, arranged organically, The Flower District perfectly mirrored the stylish setting that screams summer and sunshine,” remembers Coral & Co. An added bonus, all arrangements were made completely foam free!
Stealing the show with their spectacular, free-flowing balloon arch, this custom-coloured arrangement by Blowout Balloons could almost double as giant candy clusters! “Blowout Balloons hit the brief with their perfectly colour matching breath-taking balloon arch that flowed effortlessly throughout the space – balloons that look like sweet sorbet,” describes Coral & Co.

Venue – Zoobibi
Set in the eclectic and beautiful Zoobibi in Hawthorn, the space doubles as an Asian artisan and Middle Eastern marketplace as well as a mezze style cafe. Incorporating Zoobibi’s colourful vases and dinnerware, Coral & Co were overwhelmed with the stunning collection of pieces chosen for the shower. Keeping to theme, Zoobibi also served up a selection of refreshing juices – just in case you mouth wasn’t already watering from the deliciously sweet décor!
Desserts by Violet & Salt
With pastel praline cupcakes, light limoncello slices and a dramatic peach buttercream cake draped in delicate lemon paper and silver accents, who wouldn’t be dreaming of summer? “Violet & Salt smashed it out the park,” says Coral & Co. “The cake brief was fun, dramatic, bold, yet elegant and oh boy did Violet & Salt deliver!” As if this cake needed any more wow factor, it sat on an ultra-modern tiled plinth with coloured grout thanks to P0ly.
Whether your postponing bridal celebrations for the millionth time, or you’re lucky enough to be planning with zero social restrictions, take this as your sign to host a fun, summery bridal shower brunch! In times where we may all be craving a little brightness and positivity, why not replicate all the joys of summertime in your event styling – sunshine and sorbet included!
