A big part of every MOH's responsibility is to take the reigns of planning the bridal shower, which I was excited about because it got my creative juices flowing. The party favors presented a great opportunity to indulge my crafting addiction. With my mom as my craft partner, we set out to design a bridal shower that was both sweet and sentimental.
For the party favors, each guest received a tiny bottle of "Love Potion No. 072311" (aka grenadine) with a miniature drink recipe booklet that showcased grenadine cocktails. The No. 072311 stands for the date of the bride's wedding. Handmade heart and flower chocolate mints were also given as favors.
For the table centerpieces, we arranged a variety of bright daisies in mason jars adorned with polka dot bows, which sat atop swatches of pink and blue floral fabrics. I love daisies because they scream summer and are so cheery.
I also created a handmade triangle banner out of scrap-booking paper and twine, which hung on the gift table. It added a personal touch to the room and the bride loved it. :)
We kept things fun by playing bridal bingo during the opening of gifts and threw in a couple more games throughout the afternoon. Overall, the bridal shower was a huge success. (now its time for the bachelorette party - oh boy!)
