Personalizing paper products

24 Jun

My friend’s bridal shower is tomorrow, and if you’re keeping track, that’s shower #2 of my planning (#3 I am hosting in early August).  We picked out this pretty gray & white, with red accent text invitation from Pear Tree Greetings. To keep the theme going in the other paper products, my brother created two signs to print out and have at the shower.  The is first an “in lieu of favors” sign, and the second is to encourage guests to make a scrapbook page for the bride in a scrapbook I got from A.C. Moore.

We are also planning to make small cards we can write each food item on. I love creating personal touches like this, while also keeping the theme throughout the shower.  White flowers and white & black accessories (like candle sticks and platters/bowls) will be used, as well.  Check back for pictures and details next week!

Have you created any personal details for a bridal shower?

    I hosted my best friend’s shower last summer and asked each guest to bring their favorite recipe on a a recipe card, and then write a memory associated with the meal on the back. We put them all in a cute recipe holder and gave it to the bride at the end of the shower. I think she loved it. Her now hubby loved it even more!
