“love is in the air” bridal shower

Category: everyday | March 23rd, 2012

a couple weekends ago i got to host a bridal shower for a dear friend of mine, ellen aka ellenor, who is getting married oh so soon! i had a lot of fun making the decorations and setting up the house. a big thank you goes out to her mom for taking care of all the food because that is just not my thing. ;) the theme was “love is in the air.” i tried not to make it look so much like valentine’s day, but that’s all about love too so we’re good. ;)  long story short, she and all the gals had fun….and she got lots of goodies.

i may or may not have used similar decorating ideas from miss P’s birthday party. but hey..it worked! ;)

these were my fav. they were fun and easy to make. cut out heart shaped felt, sew, stuff, glue. bam. heart stick. :) 

i think there will forever be glitter in my carpet from this sign. ;)

we were way excited to be writing out fun date ideas for her date jar! saw this on pinterest of course. i kind of want to make a jar for myself too. ;)

i had this at one of my bridal showers and it was soo nice! already addressed thank you cards? yes please!

that cake was massive and fabulous at the same time. the bride to be’s mama did awesome! oh and that chocolate fountain was a hit!!

ahh the gum game. again, i had this done at my shower and it was fun so clearly i had to do it to ellen. i came up with 30 questions and had her man answer them for me (and not tell her of course!). i printed them out, cut them into hearts and had everyone ask the questions to her. and for every one she got wrong…in went a massive piece of gum. i did let her choose which gum she wanted but i also said it had to be big. makes it more fun. let’s just say i had some difficult questions in the mix that i knew she probably wouldn’t get just to make sure she would have to stuff her face.

the bride to be and her proud mama. 

all lovely ladies. (yep, that’s a sleeping baby i’m wearing. she wanted in on the party.)

it was a simple but sweet shower for a sweet friend. i liked the dainty little details that were thrown in there. simple things such as doilies and cute vases always work. :) i am so excited for her wedding that is coming up real soon! love you ellenor! AND a big thank you to R & V who helped with the decor and set up. y’all are the sweetest. enjoyed our late night girl chats too. ;)
