Real Bridal Shower: Future Mrs. R

17 May

On Saturday, fellow bridesmaids and I hosted a bridal shower for the bride, the future Mrs. R. She is the first of the 3 weddings I am in this summer.

We used an invitation from Vistaprint.

The tree was used throughout the decor.

A menu of sandwiches, an Italian salad, olive dip & crackers were served along with wine and to finish- cupcakes from Wicked Sweet (vanilla, chocolate, and my fave, strawberry shortcake).

Decor included a DIY banner, peach-y & white mixed flowers in Italian soda bottles, and lanterns.

Opening presents was the main event, and I was in charge of creating the “bowquet”.  It was my pride and joy!

my gift - L.L. Bean tote

The bridal party!

Congrats to the happy couple!

      Thanks! My friend drew the tree design by hand for the menu and other signs- inspired by the invitation.
