I had the pleasure of throwing my friend Ashely’s bridal shower a few weeks ago, and it was so much fun! I made a spread of what is quickly becoming my usual go-to items: cake pops, fruit cups, chicken salad on croissants and some other sweet treats.
I love that a bridal shower gives you the setting to meet some of the people closest to the bride before the big day, so that when her day does come, you know quite a few faces. I had a great time getting to know these ladies and can’t wait to see them all again when we’re dressed in our formal wear!
(family secret: croissants and pre-made chicken salad are both from Costco and neither disappoint!)
The beautiful invitations were provided by Wedding Paperie and were seriously gorgeous. I got so many compliments on them! You could leave them as they were designed, or customize any detail. I loved that you could also print on the backside for no additional charge. If you’re planning an event in the near future I would definitely recommend them! You can see all of the bridal shower invitations here.
I know that most people toss favors when they get home, so I almost didn’t do one. And then as I was putting my hair in a ponytail it just came to me, “Ashely and Edward tie the knot!”
I already had a ton of elastic ribbon from making headbands for Adelaide, so I picked up some kraft tags from Michaels and printed up this sign that reads “Ashely and Edward tie the knot. Please take one!” and displayed them by the door. Every single one of them was gone, so I’d say it was a well received favor! For those who are interested, you can buy the elastic here.
Congratulations, Ashley! I’m so excited for you and Edward and can’t wait to celebrate with you on your big day!
