The idea to throw a champagne brunch came to me when I realized my sister was celebrating her champagne birthday last year. Also known as a golden birthday, a champagne birthday is a birthday in which you turn the age of the day you were born, for example, turning 25 on the 25th. This champagne brunch would also be a lovely bridal shower idea so we made sure to include some bridal shots as inspiration as well. A perfect excuse to pop some bubbly!
We went with a soft, feminine theme for our champagne brunch shoot and included plenty of sweet treats including cupcakes, donuts, marshmallows, hand-decorated sugar cookies, macarons and chocolate covered strawberries. Adorable mini chicken and waffles, mini quiches, and bite-sized pancake stacks provided some substance to our otherwise indulgent sweet table. Blush Balloon Boutique created this amazing bubbly champagne backdrop, which was a showstopper! Romantic florals adorned the beautiful pink drip cake that was almost too pretty to eat (although that didn’t stop me one bit).
A mimosa bar was a must for our champagne celebration. Any drink that makes it acceptable to have champagne for breakfast gets my stamp of approval! Hand-lettered carafes held a variety of fruit juices ready to be topped with champagne and fresh fruit. We kept our champagne in a beverage tub filled with DIY floral ice cubes. Not only did they keep our champagne nice and chilled, they were so pretty to look at!
My sister and her friends had a fun time playing models for the day!
I hope we have left you with some inspiring ideas for your next celebration. Cheers!
