Caryn's Bridal Shower

So I just posted the invitations for my friend's shower and I thought I would share some of the details of the shindig! We had it at a restaurant so I had to focus on some cute table decorations to bring in the pink and green theme that I had established with the invitations. I had to travel with these decorations on the plane so they had to be durable too! I think they turned out real cute if I might say so myself!

So here is what I did - I had pink 'take-out' boxes filled with chocolates and tied up with pink and green ribbons with a charm that said 'Happily Ever After'. I created my own napkin rings with coordinating scrap book paper and then the bride's napkin ring was nothin' but bling! It was a big diamond ring. I also had three centerpieces. Two were cardboard cylinders that I covered with green and white polka dotted paper and then filled with faux pink gerbera daisies! Cute and inexpensive! The third did double duty as a centerpiece and my gift to her as well. I bought the four cup measuring cup off her registry and then filled it with floral foam and easter grass and then wooden spoons (also off the registry) popped out of the cup intersperesed with more pink gerbera daisies! I was the most surprised about this one making the plane ride in one piece! Then for further decorating loveliness I cut out big circles out of scrapbooking paper and mounted their wedding date digits on three of well as pictures of the bride and groom around the room. The wedding is coming up! It will be a beautiful day for sure.

Preppy Bridal Shower Combo

I made these very pretty pink and green invitations for a friend's bridal shower. Her wedding is going to be pink and green (she says - think watermelon!) and so we just had to do it up for the shower! The set includes a 5"x7" invitation and matching "Wishes for the Bride" card and Thank You folding cards.

These would also be good for a baby shower, rehearsal dinner or even a little girl's birthday party!
