Elements of a Wedding Shower

 Last month I hosted a bridal shower for a friends daughter. I was in charge of the invitations and this is what I came up with. I got the colors from a Lenox tableware pattern that the happy couple had chosen to go with their new home.  They are fine musicians, and the bride is a singer from the word go, so I used two little love birds as the accent on the invite.
 This is a backdrop that I used for the serving table and it turned out okay, but didn't get hung very well.
I'm always trying to do too many things at the last minute, and this was one of those times. I hung this up without enough time to adjust the height and it looked quite mediocre.
Live and learn.
My lost camera has the main pictures from the party in it. Cindy Harmer made a great cake, decorated with singing birds and such. Susan Lucas made some great food to go with the things I had made.

Oh, my favorite other part was the lemonade served in small glass bottles with striped turquoise and red colored straws, and red raffia tied around the top of the bottle. It was cute.


  1. You have a flair for these things. Love it!


  2. it probably didn't help that you had lots of little hands trying to help with this project! I think it looks great!
