Gettin' Hitched!

A friend of ours got married this June. Her sister-in-law threw her a lovely bridal shower... and... I was in charge of  decorating! Well technically, I kind of kept asking if I could help and me thinks I put her in an awkward place and she couldn't refuse. So much for wedding etiquette huh? I wonder if they were planning to invite me in the first place... hmmmm.... food for thought.

Her wedding colour palette was ivory, brown and pink. I simply love damask and decided to use it on the paper products I designed for the shower.

And now onto a whole bunch of pictures with bad lighting. The bride-to-be was welcomed in with a banner that read 'Blessings!'.

Martha Stewart's pom-poms were everywhere. Obviously!

I love perfume bottles! The clear shimmering glass and beautiful shapes make me feel like a child at Christmas. I have collected a few over time and used them here to put in a couple of pink Dutch roses. The tall vases are drinking glasses with shiny silver pebbles and twigs. To add to all that shimmer, we (my sweet assistant a.k.a husband and I) strung little crystals (fake plastic ones) on them. The dry rose petals are from a whole lot of potpourri the bride-to-be supplied.

The glass votives with pink tealights were the bride's sister-in-law's idea. They were so pretty all lit up. This was one time I wished I had an awesome fancy schmancy camera.

And finally, favour boxes!
