Bohemian Bridal Shower

Pin It!

Kelly and I have been friends since we were 5 years old. She's getting married in August and I'm excited to be in her wedding! Her mom hosted hosted her bridal shower at her house (adorable cottage on Coronado Island) and all of the bridesmaids pitched in (there are 10 of us!). Her wedding colors are mint and yellow and she wanted to have a "bohemian" vibe. I immediately pictured all of us with flowers in our hair. I created the "Pick a flower for your hair" sign, and then filled an old mint colored drawer with white daisies. I loved how it turned out. My best friend Kandi (also a bridesmaid) baked all the cupcakes and put them in cups along with a sign that said "Cupcake Cups -- the way classy girls eat their dessert). Some of her bridesmaids were in charge of games, others the bar (mint chip drinks anyone?) The whole thing was so cute!

Pin It!

My wonderful friend Megan had her baby shower this past weekend. It was so neat to see how many of her close friends worked together to create such a gorgeous shower. One of her friends created the entire dessert bar, one was in charge of the insanely beautiful succulent favors as well as all of the stunning bouquets, banners, table runners and beautifully handmade advice book, one friend catered sandwiches and salads, a few different friends were in charge of games, one friend brought balloons and I was asked to photograph the shower as well as create the signs that you'll see below (now in my Etsy shop). It was such a sophisticated event, just like the mama-to-be.

I also wanted to share of few pictures of Iva's gorgeous nursery! I created all of the prints and it was so neat to see them hanging on the walls.

Donut Bar Bridal Shower

Pin It!

Saturday was my best friend Kandi's bridal shower. What a fun time we had! We decided to go with brunch so we served VG's Donuts (hands down the best donuts I've ever had), bagels from Einstein's and fruit cups with a whipped topping. We had a mimosa bar with a couple different juice and berry options (thank you Kelly for providing an entire case of champagne and all the juices and berries!) I found a chalkboard label template online and made each guest a mason jar with their name. I bought the adorable straws with personalized flag from Angie Hearts Jared on Etsy. I made all of the chalkboard signs in photoshop and then had them printed at kinkos. I used spray adhesive to adhere them to poster board. I'm selling them in my Etsy shop! Kandi's mom made the gorgeous tassle banner out of yarn, and I made the Kandi & Matt banner using the bunting that I bought from Target and then printing enormous letters out of cardstock. My mom ordered gorgeous handmade soaps as favors, and we played a couple of games. I found the ENORMOUS 4 foot donut pool floatie at Paper Source (but bought it on amazon for $10 cheaper). I cut all of the donut garland from paper at Paper Source, and glued them onto glitter ribbon. We attached them to the enormous 36 inch balloons behind Kandi's chair (but I didn't get a really good picture at the shower so I'm sharing the pictures I took at my house before). I, okay my husband, made the gold sparkle K & M letters by buying paper mache letters and spraying them with gold glitter spray paint and then sprinkling gold glitter on top. My mom rented a helium tank so we could blow up close to 30 balloons (although you can't see many of them in the picures). There you have it. Wow, that was a mouthful.

I love, love, love planning parties. I think my dream job would be to do it for wealthy people, so my budget was endless :-)
