34 A A Typically held four to six weeks before the wedding, the bridal shower is perfect for an informal gathering of all the ladies involved in the planning process. At Rucker Place in downtown Birmingham, Jackie Rowell of Jackie Rowell Events combines sweet blue and white china, Southern cuisine staples and garden-fresh forals for an afternoon tea of celebrating the bride-to-be. The Plan "For the Bridal Tea, I wanted it to be a traditional Southern tea to honor the bride, featuring a beautiful presentation of fnger foods that would allow the guests to mingle while enjoying each other's company. The designer, Suzanne Martenson, and I met initially to plan a concept and discuss details of the presentation including the types of fowers, dinnerware and serving pieces. I then contacted the photographer, caterer and venue manager to discuss the types of food, the presentation and to confrm our location and date. On the day of the shoot, the designer, photographer and I decided on the exact location for the set-up and got all the elements arranged in a way that brought our concept to life." - Jackie Rowell, Jackie Rowell Events Among a mix of Queen Anne's lace, poppy pods and gathered greenery, these dark fowers are known as Chocolate Cosmos. These darling blooms are known to produce a pleasant chocolate scent, especially on warm evenings. Your foral designer can incorporate unique, interesting fowers that add fabulous texture and movement to your foral accents. The Bridal Tea Calligrapher: The Refned Pen. Catering: Savoie Catering.
