Sunday, April 30 marked only 97 more days until my sister, Morgan Vanderhei says, “I do.”
Welcome sign was purchased on Zazzle, along with the other framed signs.
My mom and a couple of her bridesmaids and I had been planning the details of her Bridal shower for quite some time now and they all came to fruition. Thankfully and much to our contentment, she loved everything (couldn’t be happier). Are you working to plan a bridal shower or wedding event in the upcoming future? Here are some more photos and details about the day:
- Craft It Gold and white, polka dot and striped paper straws from Michael’s ($9.99)
- Orange juice for the mimosa bar was four different types of Sunny D (the large containers poured into crafts)
- Chalkboard tags with twine for orange juice crafts from Walmart ($9.98)
- Mason jars can be purchased at Walmart, Michael’s, or Hobby Lobby (in bulk)
- Twine to wrap around the mason jars can be purchased at any craft store
Surprisingly enough, the lace and burlap runners adorning the tables were also purchased at Walmart (Vintage Burlap and Lace). One of my favorite aspects, decoration wise of the shower were most definitely the “BRIDE” balloons I got at Party City. I was able to pre-order them, pay for them ahead of time, and scheduled to pick them up Saturday morning when I left to drive home (so convenient).
We played a classic newlywed game where I asked Andrew questions ahead of time, wrote his answers on large sheets of paper, and had her guess her answers on the spot on a dry-erase board. All of the guests received the fifteen questions and were able to fill out their guesses prior to Morgan making her guesses, super fun!
My favorite game was without a doubt ‘Bridal Shower Bingo’, played while Morgan was opening gifts. I purchased the cards off of Zazzle and filled them out myself. I thought it was a creative, unique game that connected the guests with the bride-to-be while she was opening presents (which let’s be honest, can get kind of boring). Even better, I got amazing feedback that people thoroughly enjoyed the bingo game.The adorable, lavender bars of soap were shower favors for all the guests that we placed on the tables. Amy, one of the bridesmaids purchased them from the Good Earth Soap based in Kewaunee, Wisconsin-be sure to check out their Facebook and website for more, homemade products!
