Bridal Shower Decorations and Activities


Hello Friends! Picking up where I left off in my last post, here are a few more of my projects for the Bridal Shower I hosted a few weeks ago.


I didn't have an official theme in mind, but wanted to use blush pinks, lavenders, and white tones.

Once again, I used my Silhouette Cameo for a quick MISS to MRS sign in pink to liven up the gift table. The bride also took a few photos with it, and it's being recycled for the Bachelorette Party.

Jen was kind enough to let me borrow her Rifle Monogram Garland that we found at the Chicago BHLDN a few years ago. I hung it behind the bride's seat, and it made a great backdrop for pictures throughout the event.

Practicing my sewing skills, I made strands of heart garland to dress up the windows.

As I mentioned in my Bridal Shower Invitations post, I sent out recipe cards with my invitations for guests to complete with instructions for their favorite dishes. I had a monogrammed "H" box to hold the recipe cards, and a marquee "H" light to personalize the table. The gifts on the left were prizes for the games (wine, recipe cards, Anniversary/Birthday book, bubble bath, and chocolates). I'll share more about my favors in my next post. The gorgeous gemstone banner was one of Jen's creations.

I made a Bride to Be sign for Hillary's chair, pictured above and below.

I feel like you only get the pretty, groomed, perfect picture of events. So here's my honest view of the chaotic mess the night before. Thankfully it came together with lots of help.


Last time, I shared my process for Pin the Mustache on the Groom.

We also played the Ring Game (not pictured). Give each guest a ring when they arrive, and explain certain words are off limits (Wedding, Bride, Groom's name, etc.). If one guest catches another saying the taboo word, they steal the ring. The guest with the most rings at the end of the event wins a prize.

Another fun game Jen helped me find was called "Who Has the Groom?" You cut out pictures of random men, or celebrity men, as well as a picture of the groom. Each guest receives an envelope with a mystery man. Everyone opens up the envelopes at the same time, and the guest with the groom wins a prize.

I think Prince Charles smelling a rose was my favorite.

When cleaning up, it was a funny surprise to find several gentlemen in the centerpieces.

Like any event, I always wish I had more time, or was able to execute that last project to make my vision finally perfect. Overall, it was so fun to celebrate Hillary, and I discovered a lot of fun projects to incorporate into future events!
