Weekend Recap: Sister’s Bridal Shower

Here it finally is, the show and tell of my sister’s bridal shower!

BROWN flower cups

I was inspired by this Pinterest idea but wanted to use sister’s new last name (Brown) instead! However, these darling mugs retail for something like $7 a pop and that just wasn’t going to work for me. Solution – plain white cups on clearance at Crate & Barrel and a package of puffy stickers from Hobby Lobby. Couldn’t be easier!


Whisk Lights

Another pinterest idea! Using clear string (jewelry section at H-Lobby), I strung 6 whisks of varying sizes (kitchen gadget aisle at the grocery store) from my curtain rod.  Add tealights and its done!


Guest Book Apron

Since it was a kitchen shower, I wanted a kitcheny guest book. I picked up a plain apron from Jo-Ann, hot glued some lace around the edges, and wrote her name in bubble letters. During the shower, the ladies signed their names and wrote words that they thought described her!

“From Miss to Mrs. Banner”

Have you seen those darling printable banners on Pinterest? I loved this idea to brighten up the dining room area. I used Shanty 2 Chic‘s blog to print off my letters, mounted them on cardstock, hot glued them to the same clear string and hung it over my window.

Weekend Preview: Bridal Shower

The past few weeks have been a flurry of craft supplies, kitchen gadgets, and research on non-annoying bridal shower games. My sister is getting married after Christmas and I have the great pleasure of hosting her bridal shower in my home this weekend.


Here’s some preview shots of what I’ve been up to:
