Bridal Shower : The Decor

My bridal shower was AMAZING. I have so much to tell you, so I'm going to try to do it in bits and pieces. First up...the decor!

Super-Crafty Sister hosted my shower on Saturday at her beautiful home. And being the Super-Crafty Sister she is, the place looked fabulous.

In true Super-Crafty Sister fashion, she put together these beautiful centerpieces with flowers from our local farmers' market.
The tag around the vase designates who will the centerpiece will be given to. Several family friends helped provide food and other items, so this was her way of saying thank you. How thoughtful!!!


I love this. They put out baby pictures of me and my fiance. Too cute. :)

And here is the beautiful food table!!! Isn't it lovely??


The cake was stunning. Daisies are my favorite flower, so that theme carried beautifully throughout the shower.

I loved the different types of tea she offered, along with the cute tags to tell everyone which flavor each one was.

And this...this was one of my favorite parts of the shower! My sister asked everyone to bring one of their wedding photos to be displayed at the shower. I loved seeing all the different eras represented!!



And then there was...gift bingo! I played this at a friends' bridal shower and LOVED it. So my sister decided to recreate the game! Each guest received a blank Bingo card.



Super-Crafty Sister (in true teacher fashion) instructed the guests to fill out the blank squares with the gifts they thought I might be receiving that day.



As I opened each gift, the guests would mark off the square that matched the gift. It is a great way to keep guests entertained and involved as the presents are opened!!

Stay tuned for more! :)
