Choosing the design for my sister’s shower was simple for me- emulate the bride. When I think of her I think feminine and timeless. I pulled femininity with all the shades of pink and incorporating wired dress forms and purses filled with assorted pink flowers and wrapped in light pink ribbon. In the timeless aspect I added in the trunks, they have been used for decades to indicate social stature and royalty. There was a lot of DIY, everything was handmade, from the invitation to the advice tree, which I actually used real branches cut from my back yard and arranged into a glass vase recycled from her engagement party. The favor I made was a favorite craft I had done and she loved, Mason jar soap pumps. I included small details in the table numbers and place cards by headlining them with a custom “Christine’s Bridal Shower” label I designed just for her shower and was altered on the invitation as well. Making everything yourself is hard work but the outcome is priceless.
Happy Wedding Wednesday! Today we have a pretty bridal shower from New Jersey. Bride Christine was surprised by her sister and mother with a really adorable shower with lots of fun ideas and details. Enjoy!
