Last month I hosted a Bridal Shower at my house for my husband's sister.
I did the decorations, one sister-in-law did the food & one sister-in-law did the games.
I think it all turned out great and everyone seemed to have a good time!
I thought a tea party shower would be fun as my sister-in-law (the bride) collects tea pots and likes tea. The yellow & grey were her wedding colours, so that made sense to use those for the shower, but it's tricky to find yellow & grey stuff in the fall I tell you!
Here's the invitation I created, I made it to coordinate with the wedding invitation...
|The banner I created.|
|One of the centerpieces & a frame I painted with a photo of the couple in it.|
|I had this jar out with strips of paper so people could write down some date ideas for the couple.|
|The bride likes lemon drops and they fit in with the theming ever so nicely|
|Another one of the centerpieces & another frame I painted with a photo of the couple in it.|
|And another of the centerpieces & more frame I painted with a photos of the couple inside.|
|I got this tea pot and had all the guests use a sharpie to sign their names on it and gave it to the bride at the end of the shower as a keepsake.|
|I made little place-cards for everyone at the tables. I enjoyed bringing out my good China dishes and silverware to make it all fancy for our tea party.|
|My sister-in-law did veggies & dip, fruit kebabs, cookies, cucumber sandwiches, and tea for the food.|
|I made label card for in front of each tea pot. I set each tea pot on a doily with a trivet underneath to protect my island.|
|I made the chalkboard print.|
|The subway art I made in their wedding colours.|
|The date night jar idea getting filled as the shower went on.|
|At the end of the shower, I gave the bride: the jar of date night ideas, the tea pot everyone signed, and the book I wrote down the gifts she was given. I stuck all these favors in the cute yellow gift bag for her to take.|
