Guest Post: A Vintage Peach Bridal Shower

{While I am out of town for a dear friend's wedding, I hope this guest post leaves you with a nice fuzzy feeling - kind of like a peach! This bridal shower inspiration comes from Meredith, one of's Merchandising Specialists.}

The end of summer brings with it the end of peach season. A staple in my family for homemade peach crisp, peaches have a wonderful color palette of pinks and oranges. Feeling inspired by my local “Olde Tyme Peach Festival,” which features old fashioned family fun, fresh food and even a parade in honor of the fuzzy summer fruit, this soothing color combination makes for a lovely end of summer bridal shower.
