My Mother-in-Law is the queen of hosting beautiful bridal showers, baby showers, church picnics, etc. This past weekend she hosted a bridal shower for one of my friends at church. I was so excited to be able to help out.
Corrie and I making party favors.
Caramel Apple dip in teeny mason jars.
Caramel sauce + cream cheese + more caramel sauce + crushed heath bars
Oh, and an apple on top!
We decided on a "Fall" theme since Fall is almost here.
The beautiful bride, Cheyanna.
The banner was made by cutting triangles out of burlap and then stenciling letters with black craft paint.
I just hotglued the triangles onto some rustic twine.
I made several of the smaller banners to hang up throughout the party area.
My favorite thing was this silhouette of the bride on burlap!
I took a profile picture of her and then used Picasa to increase the contrast so it was easier to trace.
I held up a piece of plain white paper to my computer screen and traced her silhouette. Then cut out the silhouette. And lastly laid the silhouette paper flat on burlap fabric and traced it with a Sharpie.
I love the contrast of the pretty pearls and tulle against the burlap!
Here's the drinks and dessert. On the left was Sparkling Cranberry Punch (with floating apples & oranges)
And on the right Banana Cupcakes with Peanut Butter frosting. Yum!
Can't forget the paper straws.
They looked like this up close and were super festive.
Another picture of the cupcakes (made by Michele).
For food we were served White Chicken Chili in bread bowls (oops, no picture)
But I do have a picture of the plates.
And Autumn Chopped salad with bacon and pears.
A great evening with wonderful friends, delicious food, and the beautiful bride!
