Bridal Shower Fun! (A Blogging Break From Teaching Posts)
Hi friends! I thought I would take a little break from blogging about “all things teaching” today! (We can all use a little mental break from school, right?!) So if you stopped by on this beautiful Easter day for a teaching idea, you will have to come back later this week. Today, my blog has “gone bridal!”
One of my best friends, Leah, is getting married at the end of May and I am super honored that she asked me to stand beside her as her maid of honor! (That’s right, I said Maid of Honor. It should be Matron of Honor but that sounds OLD to me haha!) A couple weekends ago, I threw a bridal shower for Leah with her sister. Everything came together so beautifully (well, in our opinions it did ha) that I thought I would share pictures of our day with you!
If you are getting married or have a friend getting married soon, maybe you can grab a “bridal” idea or two from this post! 🙂 Happy Photo-Browsing!
To add some vintage charm to the table, I wrapped these mason jars with lace. Then, I tied twine around them for a pretty touch to the tables. We used these in place of water glasses.
Aren’t these little wine bottles the cutest guest favors? They were made by putting a chalkboard label over the bottle and tying on a pretty paper straw.
Guests wrote “Date Night” ideas for the happy couple on these mason jar tags and dropped them into the jar. We tied the tags together with ribbon to make a Date Night Book for them at the end of the shower. We also used the tags to draw names for random gifts for the guests!
Do you see the little gold card with the ring to the left of the mason jar? Guests scratched these cards off (similar to a lottery ticket) to see if they had won a little door prize! The losing cards said funny things like, “He lost the ring!” or “The limo is late!” It was a fun little way to get people laughing and socializing as they came into the room. 🙂 I found these cards in a cute little Etsy show HERE.
I found a chalkboard mail sorter at Michael’s and we used it as the card collector on the gift table.
I made a couple of bunting banners for the shower out of scrapbook paper, letter stickers, and twine! Not super fancy but I think it worked! 🙂
Leah’s sister is super creative and has the best decorating ideas! We threw these extra paper lanterns onto the dance floor to add a little extra touch.
Cotton Candy favors!
Sweets Table! Yum!
This little banner was made the same way as the banner for the chair. Trace, cut, glue! 🙂
White cupcakes were ordered and these little cupcake toppers were made with various colors of card stock and little candy sticks.
Various glass plates and cake stands gave our Sweets Table an eloquent, vintage feel! A lace and burlap table runner added a little extra texture to the table!
Thanks for letting me share these pictures with you! I had fun putting this little blog post together, and I hope you enjoyed a little break from a teaching topic as much as I did! Dont’ worry, I’ll be back later this week with some teaching tips and tricks for you!
Have a wonderful, happy Easter and a fabulous new week!
