Next month, one of my oldest and dearest friends Michelle is getting married. Her bridal shower was this past weekend and I helped with decorations.
Her wedding colors are plum, peach and cream so we used the same theme for the shower. I made another tissue garland like the one from my sister’s shower in May and a wreath from the same shades of purple for the front door.
It’s apparently impossible to find peach colored tissue paper, so I made another banner by dyeing coffee filters in shades of peach and cream. I’d never done a garland from coffee filters before, and I was pretty impressed with how it turned out.
The banner was made out of scrapbook paper and ribbon and the letters came from Hobby Lobby.
We had a mimosa bar and Michelle’s future sister-in-law made lots of yummy food (isn’t that the best part about showers anyway?).
She also ordered a cupcake cake in the shape of a wedding dress.
Cheers to the bride!
We played several shower games and I won for having the most random items in my purse. Shocker.
The original crew. Best friends since junior high.
The shower was really fun (that could have had something to do with the six bottles of champagne we downed) and I loved getting to spend so much time with my best girlfriends. We don’t get to see each other as often as we’d like, so I was thrilled to be able to make the trip to Little Rock to celebrate with Michelle.
Congrats Meesh! I’m so happy for you and Benson and can’t wait to be a part of your special day.
