We Hosted a Bridal Shower

This past week I have been busy doing something besides painting furniture….

My daughter and I threw a bridal shower for her good friend. This is our entrance the colors were hot pink and pink. Theme was Love Birds.

  I used my Silhouette to cut EVERYTHING it was amazing and fun.  I cut the letters, the hearts (3 sizes) and the love birds (two sizes).  I put a tree branch in an old watering can and put two love birds on the branch then hung little hearts from the branch.  Under the branch we had a large basket from Pier 1 holding little pots of Begonias that I had wrapped in pink tissue and Pink cellophane from JoAnnes Easter section. I put a rubber band around the top of the pot and put a stick with three hearts in each pot.  These were the “Thank you for Coming” take away gift.
We played the clothes pin game “Please take one the buzz word is Wedding”.  This is before the bride and groom pictures arrived… We did not throw a party for the couple in the frame that came from target ;)

Here is our Mantle, I made the banner with the brides and grooms name on it.  Strung it with hot pink ribbon.  My daughter made the hot pink poofs and brought the frames for the bride and groom pictures.


Here is the coffee table with the first flower arrangement I made and  a picture frame with the same couple from Target...


Hydrangeas came from our local Kroger, Hot Pink Carnations from Target I was thrilled to find those and pale pink roses from Sams Club.

Here is our table, it was a brunch, there was a breakfast casserole, mini quiches, fruit and yogurt dip, cheese, spinach and artichoke dip, crackers and nuts.


I had this birdcage, I wanted those flowers inside the cage but do you see how little that door is?  My hand did fit through it but those flowers were not going to…. I had to knock out the bottom of the cage and then set the flowers and their water soaked floral foam inside of the cage.


We set it on a box and covered it with a pink scarf to give the table scape lift and levels, and added a sweet pair of love birds and candles.

I made these cute little cards for all the labels.  Silhouette again little birds and very little wings! I cut the shapes, white and hot pink with the Silhouette as well.


I scored these cute little heart gum drops after Valentines day at Hobby Lobby, we used them to hold up the cards. When I glued the white card to the hot pink one I left the bottom open so I could slide the toothpick in-between them after I put a bit of hot glue on it.  They were cinnamon flavor and I had a HARD time not eating all of them before the party!  So good and yet so bad for you..


My daughter made the cupcakes, they were white cake with strawberry whipped cream filling. She tinted the white frosting pink, cut a strawberry and put it on the top.  They were delicious.  Funny side note, they sat in the window and the ones in the back facing the sun faded back to white frosting?


Another flower arrangement….

The bride and the cupcake maker!


We had a bit of fun after the party with my daughters dog, he needed to wear the party favor…..have to love that Pomeranian ..

Have a good week everyone.
