Over the weekend, I got to throw my first bridal shower for my best friend. You might remember her engagement photos that were featured a while back. The other bridesmaids and I had a blast planning games, mixing cocktails, and making Grandma be the model for the toilet paper dress.
The color scheme we chose was based on M. and B.'s engagement photos: yellow, white, sage green, and gray. We made fabric bunting, potted mini succulents and perched them atop vintage books, mixed up some yellow cocktails, made a photo wall with a yellow streamer backdrop, and even ordered cake "pops" that were frosted in yellow and gray. Favors for the guests to take home were "mix tapes" (actually CDs) of the bride's Top 10 favorite songs. We made colorful cd labels and packaged them up in stitched paper sleeves. All in all, we all had a great time! Check out some of the table decor below.
