Zoya Dreamin' Summer 2021 with Bridal Shower Decorating Ideas

Summer is my favorite time of year for color. I love all the vibrant colors in the garden; the flowers, the butterflies and the little hummingbirds with their iridescent feathers. 

The sky always looks extra blue on a summer day. Then, there is the contrast between the the green trees and the blue sky. And the summer sunsets are always amazing especially over the water at the bay.

Summer nail polish colors are my favorite too! Give me bright, bold, shimmering color. The Zoya Dreamin' Collection for Summer 2021 gives me some of those bright colors I crave!

There are six colors in the Dreamin' Collection, 4 creams, 1 neon cream, and 1 outstanding shimmering mermaid shade! The neon cream requires 3 coats for full coverage. The other 5 cover beautiful in 2 coats. 

I recently wore Darla on my toes for my daughter's bridal shower. It was the perfect pink to coordinate with our romantic pink garden theme. Plus, it was just perfect with the roses on my dress!!!

I called on my creative skills to bring to life decorations and favors with a soft romantic garden vibe. 

Here are a few pics of my bridal shower decorating ideas:

I included my Amazon Associate links to help you find the perfect items for you. 

I found the perfect paper plates to set the mood! I'm glad I grabbed them when I did since they don't seem to be available anymore.
 
The rose gold accents on the plates, the plastic champagne glasses, the cups, and the flatware added a sophisticated warm metallic glow.

Here is a pic of the cake. I am not so good at making buttercream roses so I made roses out of pink paper. They came out really nice!

I wanted the sweetheart table to be beautiful and romantic, set with personalized champagne glasses and bride and groom signs on the chairs. I made modern wreaths out of gold rings, silk flowers, greens and organza ribbons that shimmered in the sun and blew gently in the breeze for more romance!

We had a Mimosa Bar, of course. A celebration of this caliper requires lots of bubbly!!! Our juice selections for the mimosas were the classic orange juice, peach juice, pomegranate juice, and raspberry lemonade. I made large paper roses along with silk greens to decorate the Bubbly Bar sign.

I wanted the bridal shower favors to reflect the romantic flowery garden theme. Little trinket dishes in the shape of flowers fit the bill. Polymer clay baked in the oven created the perfect little dishes!

It was a wonderful day even though we were showered with a few rain drops!

Now, let's get to Darla and all the other colors on the Zoya Dreamin' Collection

Zoya Mateo is a cool pacific blue. It is creamy and well pigmented. I just love it! A beauty to wear at the beach! 

I had trouble capturing this color in a pic and had to play with the color tones to try to get it looking as accurate as possible.

Zoya Cosmic Pop Trio Limited Edition: Super Glittery Holo Nail Polish!

If you are a fan of shimmering, glittering, sparkling, holographic nail polish like me, you are going to adore the Cosmic Pop Trio Collection from Zoya!

zoya cosmic pop trio

These 3 glittery Cosmic Pop nail polish colors contain metallic glitter particles and holographic particles in 5 different sizes to create the ultimate glitter nail polish. This astral trio is inspired by the constellations twinkling in the night sky! 

I actually find myself getting memorized gazing at my sparkling nails. It's like a form of meditation...holographic glitter meditation!😁 I can't wait to see how gorgeous they look at the beach! Here's how they look in the sunshine.

The glitter particles in this polish create a slightly rough textured finish when the polish is dry. You can wear these colors topless or add Zoya's Ultra Glossy Top Coat to smooth the surface and create a super glossy finish.

The Cosmic Pop Trio polishes are equipped with Zoya's Z-Classic Brush.

Try using Zoya's Z-Wide Brush to provide quicker more even polish application. 

The Z-Wide is fan brush that is thicker and wider than the Z-Classic Brush to give more polish coverage with each stroke. It works great! They are available for purchase on the Zoya site for $2.00 and will fit in any Zoya nail polish bottle. 

Or get them for free in the Cosmic Pop Bundle Deal! See the deal later in this post.

Here is a comparison pic for you.

The Cosmic Pop Collection is a limited edition collection so get it while you can! Here is the celestial collection:

Celestia

zoya celestia

Celestia is a glimmering silver-pearlescent with a rainbow holographic. The rainbow holographic looks especially beautiful sparkling in the sun! This interstellar color is on the sheer side but will build up to look more solid.

You can also apply one coat as a topper over any nail polish color.

Polaris

zoya polaris

Polaris is a rosy gold holographic. There is a beautiful glimmering pale pink sheen to this gold polish. This cosmic color is also on the sheer side but will build up to look more solid.

As with Celestia, you can also apply one coat as a topper over any nail polish color.

Eradani

zoya eradani

Eradani is purpley magenta holographic. There are bits of sparkling blue glitter in this galactic color for beautiful depth and shine. It is the least sheer of the bunch creating solid coverage in two coats.
