All of this COLD winter weather has me summer dreaming...
That makes it a perfect time to talk about a bridal shower that I, and my co host Jana, threw last summer for our longtime friend.
I've had this shower displayed under my "party" tab for quite some time, but I wanted to write up a proper post on it.
The bride-to-be, Laura, had chosen a simple and beautiful color palette of royal blue, green, and gray. She has great taste. (She and I showed up at another shower recently with the exact same outfit on...so she must have good taste, right?) We decided to stick with a similar color palette for the shower too!
This little project was one of my favorites and made a perfect chair for the guest of honor. I simply attached tissue paper flowers to this thick burlap ribbon and draped it over a the chair to create a gorgeous decoration. I turned an old picture frame into a chalkboard (using chalkboard spray paint) and placed it over the burlap.
Oh, yes. There was a Champagne Bar. I loved "testing recipes" and putting this together! :)
1 part Champagne + 1 part Peach Puree (I blended canned peaches...juice and all and added simple syrup to sweeten the puree.) Top with frozen peaches!
The Berry Pomegranate:
1 part Champagne + 1 part Pomegranate Juice and top with frozen berries
How cute are these little bottle top wine glass markers? Jana used chalkboard paint to paint the top of the bottle top. She then drilled a small hole and added a wire loop.

Jana also put together this recipe book using Shutterfly. Each attendee submitted a favorite recipe or two to share with the bride-to-be.
Miss L. and her buddy, Miss H. They have changed so much since last summer! We like to say that they were discussing head bands.
I've created a floral recipe card inspired by the shower colors. Feel free to use for a shower or your own personal use! It downloads as two 4"x6" recipe cards.
I'm throwing another bridal shower this summer for my sister. Any great ideas that I should know about?
Have a great day! :)
