Breakfast Bridal Shower

My mom and I hosted a bridal shower for my aunt recently and I was in charge of theme and decor. I chose Bed, Bath & Beyond, pampering the Bride. The Bride and Groom have 6 kids between them and all they really need is time alone together.

We chose a breakfast shower on a Sunday morning (10-12). The timing worked perfectly.  The food was prepared my my mother, one of my aunts and one of my uncles. The food was so delicious and beautiful I might add. I got my inspiration for the food online and the cooks took it from there making each dish their own.

I wanted everything on white dishes, white tablecloths, white decorations with a hint of the wedding colours which were pink and blue. I didn't do as much paper decor as I had planned due to bad time management on my part, but I think it all worked out fine. Here as some pictures to enjoy.

These were made with 5" styrofoam balls, a wooden dowel, flowers, straight pins and some ribbon.
Oh and of course, mason jars and sand. Simple and beautiful.

Tissue paper pom poms. Gotta love them!

These were paper lanterns that I had at the store for my window displays along with some satin ribbon. It gave an elegant touch to the yard and was beautiful with the wind blowing through.

I used one of my mixed media pieces here. How fitting!

Never underestimate tissue paper! It was a great filler for the vases.
