Last Saturday I had the pleasure of hosting my sister's bridal shower along with the other bridesmaids. My mom's beautiful home was the perfect venue for the event!
My sister is getting married in February so we wanted to take advantage of the seasonal foliage and decor for her shower as her wedding and bachelorette are taking place in the winter. We used lots of white, gold, burlap and natural accents.
The welcome sign is a mirror I had on hand that I wrote on using metallic marker (also from the scrapbooking section at Dollar tree). The marker appears a bit more yellow than gold but it wipes off easily so the mirror can be reused.
I made a homemade sugar scrub for the favour for guests to take home. I found a recipe for a vanilla pumpkin sugar scrub on Pinterest that included a free label for the mason jars. I also printed these 'Thank You' tags and attached them using twine.
I made the 'Miss to Mrs' garland using burlap scrapbook paper. Dollar Tree has the cutest scrapbooking materials I often use for crafting. I printed out the letters to use as a stencil and cut them out of the burlap. I strung them on a piece of twine, added two small doilies and some lace ribbon also from the dollar store. I also made a gold and white tissue paper garland to use for the mantle and entry. You can find my tissue paper garland tutorial here.
Between myself, my mom and the bridesmaids, we were able to gather some amazing décor items we all had from home to decorate for the shower.
We had a soup bar including veggie and meat chili, coconut curry sweet potato and spicy zappa soup. We paired this with fresh breads, fresh veggies and dip, charcuterie and cheese boards. Served with sangria, white and red wine.
For dessert we enjoyed caramel apple dip, pumpkin cheesecake bites and two bite brownies.
My sister enjoyed the ever awkward task of opening gifts in front of 30 people followed by the toilet paper wedding dress game. I had asked her fiancée 25 questions prior to the shower and she had to guess his answers. This is my absolute favourite shower/ bachelorette game!!
I am so excited to stand by my gorgeous sister's side in February. Rae, you are so loved and we are all so excited for you and Maan!! I hope you enjoyed your shower as much as I did :)
