A Jam & Tea Bridal Shower

Friday, March 4th, 2011


It’s a shame that now days the first thing you think of when you hear “Tea Party” isn’t actually a tea party. Well, in an effort to take back the term, I present to you a tea party hosted by the talented Alison Iven! A friend forwarded me the link and it was such a joy looking at all the details, I especially love the recipe cards and the labels for the homemade jam!

A Sweet Bridal Shower

Monday, October 25th, 2010

As promised, I’ve got tons of pictures and details to share of my sister Laurel’s bridal shower. To match the invitation, most of the desserts were either pink or white. On the menu; a pink lemonade cake with sugar poppies (the brides wedding flower) I got from a local cake decorator, pink and white marshmallows, mini powered donuts, waffer cookies and peppermint knots. To drink, we had pink lemonade, blackberry IZZEs, Sophia Champagne and gin and tonics with a splash of grenadine.

For activities, I made a Couple’s Pop Quiz and custom cards for adult bingo. The main attraction, was a video my sister Allison made of Laurel’s fiancé answering a series of questions. Laurel then had to guess his response. It was so much fun and definitely the highlight of the night.

Lastly, for favors, I gave raspberry macaroons in boxes that I cut out on my SilhouetteSD. I was planning on making the macaroons myself but they didn’t turn out well (think Pepto Hershey Kisses) so I purchased some form a nearby bakery instead. I also made little cloth envelopes made to look like air mail envelopes with naughty scratch-it tickets inside.

All in all it was a great time and I was so happy to help see my sister off on this new chapter in her life!

A Sweet Bridal Shower Invitation

* Note: All addresses have been changed for privacy.
My little sister Laurel, the youngest of 5, is getting married this coming Saturday! I can’t believe the day is almost here but I am beyond excited for her! To wish her luck and enjoy one last big evening with her before she says “I do”, I threw a bridal shower in her honor this weekend.

The theme was a lingerie shower with a few of her closest friends, an array of cocktails and desserts. I wanted the invites to reflect and celebrate the girly nature of the party so I choose pink, white and gold as the colors. I letterpressed the square cards with gold ink and paired it with a miniature bright pink envelope which was glued to the card. The mini envelope contained all the party details on an accordion folded insert.

I’ll be back later today with loads more details and pics of the event so be sure to check in!
