I know that many people don’t enjoy going to showers. And I truly don’t get it.
I would be a bridal and baby shower crasher if I thought I could pull it off. I love it all. The cake. The decorations. The food. The punch. The cake. The games. The gifts. The cake. All of it.
And particularly the cake.
Did I mention the cake?
So, all that to say, I had the opportunity to help with a shower for my friend and little sis Emily. I’m so excited to be part of her special day as a bridesmaid. And with a wedding comes showers. Hurray! Her friend Rachel was really the mastermind behind the majority of the decorations, so I was just thrilled she let me help! (The lovely bride is third from the left.)
And besides the cake … you know I love to share shower decorations, so here they are! Emily’s wedding color is purple, so that was pretty much the only real “theme” for the shower. And I think it turned out so well. I hope you love it, too.
We’ll start with my favorite part. The food table was fabulous, in my opinion. I have a tendency to overcrowd a food table, and I love that this food table can breath. Ahhhhhh….
And I’m over-the-moon excited about the sign Rachel created. Isn’t is awesome???? She used the backing from a frame as the “canvas.” It is the most awesome backdrop for the food, too. We found the tree in the back room and drug it into the party space. Because we are totally normal.
The chalkboard tags are one of my new obsessions. I cut them from chalkboard contact paper on the Silhouette. Aren’t they adorable? (And don’t get me started on that tiered tray. I need that tray in my life.)
I even drug my kitchen chalkboard out for a field trip for the occasion. I’m becoming less horrid at the chalkboard art thing.
I think this mimosa bar was nothing short of inspired. Take note. Every shower should have mimosas. (Three fruits – blueberries, raspberries and peaches. Three types of champagne. Three types of juice.)
And here are a few more detail shots. Rachel created the chalkboard from a thrifted mirror. We created engineering prints from some of their engagement photos.
The table runners were created from disposable tablecloths.
Tulle created perfect chair bows. (I get spools of tulle on Fabric.com)
