Bridal Shower

A little bit of catch up here -  back in May my sister was home for a visit, so we (me, my sister's SIL, and a little bit of Amy...of course!) used this weekend to throw her a bridal shower!

I made invitations - choosing a bit of a bird theme, with the colors of blue, yellow, and cream.  Inspired by this pinspiration:

Using my handy-dandy Silhouette (the SD, I'm not fancy enough for the Cameo...yet) I cut out some birds, added a stamped saying, and ta-da, cute invites!

Decorations followed in those colors too:

My sister's SIL made sooo much excellent food!!

whoopie pies


In addition to the sweets she made "veggie pizza" pinwheel sandwiches, a veggie tray, and above you can see the drool-worthy macaroons, whoppie pies, and lemon tarts!

We each looked after one game.  She did toilet paper dresses.  An oldie-but goodie!

I organized the Bubble Gum game.  Basically you pre-interview the groom, and then at the shower the bride has to answer the same questions. For everyone she gets wrong, she had to pop another piece of gum in her mouth!

To make it more interesting, I got the groom to video record his answers!

Lastly, we had gifts!!  People did a great job getting her cool stuff - and it had to be small enough for her to fly home with!

Look familiar?  That's the Keep Calm sign I made her!

Everyone had a lot of fun!
