If you've been reading, you will know that I am throwing a baby shower, a bridal shower & a bachelorette party, all in the very near future. You can read my baby shower post here and check out a few tips on planning the best baby shower here.
I've only thrown one baby shower. One GREAT baby shower. But, i've thrown lots of bridal showers.
So, now... it's time for brides. I may have done this backwards, if we're going with the whole "first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage" thing. But- why be conventional? :)
Shower Idea #1: Cutesy-Local-Restaurant Luncheon Shower
Here we are, the terrible trio from college, in all of our 22 year-old-glory. Yes! That's Brittany from The Leengo on the right. The bride, Heather, is in the middle.
Shower Idea #3: Around-The-Clock Shower
At Natalie's shower, we used the front table as the go-to, catch-all table. Nametags, gifts, party favors all went on this table. Since it was a kitchen shower, we included a cute recipe card in each invitation for guests to fill out. Then, we put them all in a recipe box.
IMPORTANT SIDEBAR #2: Utilize technology to skype in your friend who lives in Germany.
I tried to do a spin on the ol' diaper cake with this "kitchen-linen" cake. Natalie registered for the blue & white kitchen towels- so I rolled a few up and made them into a cake. The coasters she registered for were discontinued, so we picked out new ones with an "A"- for her new last name.
