Rather than using a lattice background that we typically use at church, I thought we'd go with something unique. I used about 1 1/2 rolls of each color of crepe paper, making this background cost under $10 with the balloons.
The chalkboard was part of my gift to Alli. It was an old picture that was faded and dated. I painted it with a few coats of chalkboard paint. The brown frame was sanded, then painted with acrylic paints.
Their wedding invitation was placed on a frame that was backed with burlap.
A talented lady in our church did these White Chocolate Raspberry cupcakes. They were delicious and lovely. There are several variations of the wedding dress cupcake display, but I love how she used the daisies on the bodice.
|Liza had to send her regrets that she couldn't make it to the shower, |
but she did enjoy the decorations while she could!
These tissue paper pom poms are a cinch to make. I cut a rectangle of 6 layers of paper about 8 inches by 6 inches, then accordion folded it and tied it in the middle with ribbon. I fluffed each side of the paper out, one layer at a time. I strung them on a long ribbon to create a garland for the gift table and the chalkboard.
I hope these ideas inspire you for the next party or shower you get to decorate! It's fun to get a little creative, use the colors the bride is using at the wedding, and her other favorite interests. It will make an event she won't forget!
Thanks for stopping by for a peek!
