some more self love

These pictures are from a bridal shower that Avocado Kiss did last June. I thought it was an appropriate time to post these because tis' the season! Hopefully you can get some great ideas.

For the centerpieces we used large plastic deli containers and turned them upside down. We put in a large floral pick and painted the entire thing black. We added some ribbon and a tissue paper flower (instructions from Martha). We made larger ones for the cake table, using a flower pot and styrofoam ball as the base. For the menus we made sign holders out of wooden craft wheels and floral wire. We added our scalloped menu card and voila!

For the place settings, we used kraft candy bags for the favours (mini size hand cream and lip balm, the bride's favorite things). We also placed some ballots for the penny auction prizes in a small vellum envelope. We used plain ol' pencils so people could fill in their names, and they matched our colour scheme.

On the head table we printed childhood pictures of the bride on pretty scalloped cards and linked them together with ribbon to make a garland. We also used real daisies in small juice glasses for decoration.

For the prize table, we used metal paint cans for people to drop their ballots into. We also used more of our stands to hold signs. We used these banner signs over at the cake and dessert table and the sign in table as well.

It was a lot of fun doing the invites and decorations for this shower. We used the simple theme of black, white and kept it sophisticated and fun!
