My nephew Joseph was married to Shipra in Delhi, India, this past November. To celebrate their marriage, upon their return, I hosted a traditional ladies post wedding shower luncheon.

My theme was color, and I chose shocking, hot, pink. First, we covered the ceiling in giant helium balloons of various shades of pink, tied with an array of sheer and satin ribbons in all colors of the pink spectrum. The round tables were draped with taffeta raspberry pink tablecloths, and the hand appliqu├ęd organza and linen overlays were sheer white. The fruitwood ballroom chairs had bright pink chair cushions. Seven luscious flower arrangements of varying sizes were placed on each table. The tulips, hydrangeas, roses, azaleas, sweet peas, and ranunculus were in vibrant rainbow shades of pink, coral and red. The menu place cards were hand lettered in shocking pink ink. When the red raspberry sorbet was served on silver spun sugar and bright white meringues for the dessert, it deliciously completed the riot of color of the day.
