As I’ve promised, here are some pictures of the bridal shower last weekend. Everything is handmade here.
1. Use color as your theme: Here, we picked yellow and white since it’s also the bride’s wedding color. You can buy inexpensive yellow and white carnations at PartyCity.com and set your party tables with vases you already own. The party foods were also served on yellow and white serve ware, even the lemonade was in pink.
2. Be Green. Use paper for decorations. My sister and I picked two kinds of tissue papers to create the floral pom-poms, spirkling white and yellow. Floral Pom-Poms Dahlia-like bursts of color hang from the ceiling, adding charm to any party. These tissue-paper pom-poms can be made in the size and color of your choice. Plus, you can easily make these decorations yourself: Tissue Paper Pom-Poms How-To.
3. Add fresh flowers: We got the flowers from the flower market, it’s cheap and fresh. SAN FRANCISCO’S WHOLESALE FLOWER MARKET Flowers bring everything alive. Be creative with the arrangements, you can use any vase you find at home, even a beer mug.
4. For snacks, keep it simple. Serve a couple of different dips with potato and tortilla chips. If you are serving an afternoon tea party like us, you can’t go wrong with party food such as mini sandwiches, cookie, baked hot dog roll or croissant. Serve a cake, or perhaps cupcakes, with pink icing. Strawberry desserts are also a great choice.
Do you like the tag that I created? It makes everything so personal.
