Real Party: Late Summer Bridal Shower

Snowball's ShowerI was privileged to attend a lovely bridal shower this past weekend for a dear friend. Even better, it was hosted by dear friends, who didn’t mind me showing up 30  minutes early or staying to chat in the kitchen afterward! Here are some of the pretty details produced by the hard working hostesses. Alas, no pictures of the food (which was scrumptious) because we fell on it like a pack of rabid dogs.

Snowball's ShowerI think this cork board display is brilliant! Love the coordinated papers (and even the thumbtacks!). The flower design was taken from the very cute invitations, which they downloaded and printed for free from here!

Snowball's ShowerHow cute are the ribbon wine charms? Such a delightful way to mark a glass.

Snowball's ShowerThey paper goods were purchased from a big box party store…at like 90% off (is that right, Momo?). It’s further proof that paper product gems can be found even at the store right down the street.

Snowball's ShowerOne of the hostesses ran out to get the balloons before the party. Unfortunately, the man working at the counter didn’t usually do balloons and couldn’t find specific colors. Luckily, blue and green were right on top of a pile, and look how well they coordinate!

Snowball's ShowerThe grandmother of one of the hostesses did all the flower arrangements, aren’t they pretty? Her mom also made the dangerously delicious chocolate pecan favors. What a good example of drawing on the strengths of people you know to pitch in for a party!

Snowball's Shower(Oh yes, those are my toes/shoes sneaking in to the pic, aren’t they cute!?) Finally, I was tickled to see a present I had given the hostess for her own bridal shower being used as part of the decor! Congrats to Momo and Amanda on a successful shower!

    I know I’m late commenting on your post…but thank you for featuring our party! 🙂

    PS The papergoods were actually 75% off, but they might as well have been 90% off because everything turned out to be so inexpensive. You KNOW I can’t pass up a sale!

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your blog. It appears as though some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This might be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had
    this happen before. Thank you
