One of my best ideas throughout this wedding planning madness was having my bridal shower six months earlier than my wedding. Of course it was an added bonus I held it on my birthday. Even though bridal showers can be small affairs, they are still a party. Anyone who knows me knows that the sky is the limit for any party I plan. I planned my bridal shower for about six to seven months. It took countless DIY projects, phone calls, and Pinterest searching. I tend to think ” out there” when I plan projects, parties, and ideas. A majority of the time, no one understands what my vision is. This can get tricky because I really have to trust my instincts on what I want. In the end, everything turned out to be exactly how I planned. I am extremely proud of how my bridal shower turned out, and how much fun it was for my entire family and family-to-be!
The easiest decision was the theme, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Being one of my favorite movies, Breakfast at Tiffany’s was the perfect choice to celebrate my ” bride-to-be” status. To make the affair extra fun, I asked all the guests to wear something white.
I created DIY centerpieces. I bought boxes from Michael’s ( Michael’s Link Here), and hand painted them to the shade of blue I wanted. Then I hot glued white ribbon to the lid, and then to the boxes. ( This order made it easier to align the ribbon on the lid with the box.) Flowers were provided by my Wedding Florist, Floral Design.
When guests arrived they signed an old Tiffany & Co. magazine, and grabbed a string of pearls.
One of the highlights of the day was the DIY Photo Booth I made! Guests had a blast posing with Tiffany & Co. props. My flower girls/junior bridesmaid were the official photographers.
One of my favorite details of the shower. A continuing topic was the powerful women in my life. This day was a celebration of them.
I am beyond words with how special the day was to me. I am very blessed to have had a special day recognizing all the powerful and strong women in our lives.
” Well, when I get it the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany’s. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it. Nothing very bad could happen to you there. If I could find a real-life place that’d make me feel like Tiffany’s…”
