The Perfect Pair Bridal Shower

The bridal shower I've been planning for the last few months for one of my best friends finally took place last weekend. I'm so happy with how it all turned out and most importantly, Ann loved all the details! You can read the original post about prep for the shower here.



Because our bride has a deep love for candy, the candy buffet was a must! I'm a huge promoter of edible party favors instead of junk that ends up in the garbage can on the way out. I found these great gable boxes in a shiny leaf color at Mr. Takeout Bags. I thought they were too small at first but they ended up being just the right size!

I used the tags from HWTM Arbor Mist theme and tied them to the boxes with coordinating Twinery.

Due to minimal set up time at the restaurant (plus the wine was hand-served), we wrapped the stem tags on the water glasses. Also, somewhere along the way I lost my glue stick so we had to improvise and cut slots into the tags to add them to the glasses. It was actually much quicker this way and worked beautifully!

The cupcake stand is simply two square boxes from The Container Store wrapped in a matching wrapping paper. Easy as 1-2-3! It's also a great way to add height to your table!

I bought these wooden letters at Hobby Lobby - 1/2 off - and spray painted them to match our theme.

I was late getting a picture of the place card table but I think you can get the idea!

A party is not complete without a Sorority group picture. Love these girls!

Last but certainly not least, the two people that truly make the "perfect pair!" Our bride and groom, Ian and Andrea!! I'm so lucky to have them in my life. Andrea will always - forever and ever - hold a special place in my heart and words cannot express how happy I am for her as she prepares to marry her soulmate, Ian!


And before I go, another big shout out to Jenn at Hostess With The Mostess for an incredible theme to work with and all  of her generous help! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
