Thank goodness for Pinterest, because I basically stalked her wedding board for ideas that I knew she'd like for her bridal shower. We stuck with a fall theme: yellow and orange (their wedding colors) and all things burlap and sunflowers. :) I think the decor turned out pretty nice!
We placed their invitation on the mantle along with some fall flowers. I found the banner printable here. It was perfect for the bridal shower. I loved how it looked, and I'm definitely going to make another one for our house for the holidays!
For food, we provided a lighter lunch and snacks. We had shredded chicken sandwiches, chips and taco dip cups, fruit, and dessert, and then placed flowers and pictures of the couple around the food.
My mom makes the best desserts and homemade chocolates, and they turned out adorable in the little mason jars she found.
Now, I love bridal shower games. I also love things that are useful, so two of the games were full of goodies for the soon to be newlyweds to keep. We played three games total - The Price is Right: Bridal Edition, a Wedding Day Emergency Kit memory game, and a Disney Love Song quote guessing game. They were a lot of fun, and I'll be posting more about those tomorrow! :) Edit: Here are the games!
I'm not sure who had more fun opening the gifts - Karissa or our daughters! :)
When we were putting Abby to bed, she said, "I had so much fun at the party. I love today!" I'd say it was a success! :)
