I've been busy getting ready for Leah's shower, which we threw last Sunday. Since everyone seemed to enjoy Mairin's birthday post, I tought I would share some of the invitations and decorations I designed for the bride-to-be.
The printed pieces were inspired by a silhouette I made of the couple from an engagement photo. I added profile silhouettes of each of them to the invitation.
The favors were chocolates "sweet" and a spice "spicy" which was wrapped in brown paper to form the base of the individual topiary place cards.
For the centerpieces, I used topiary forms and tissue paper pom pons. I cut the base of the forms to fit in mint julep vases and covered the forms with potting moss.
The booklets contained a "tips and recipes" card for the corresponding spice, as well as a blank recipe card embossed with the bride's soon-to-be new name. Guests are to fill out the card with a favorite recipe and mail it back to the bride in the envelope provided.
We played The Purse Game and left right game and had a blast watching a video of the groom answering questions about the bride. We had her guess what his answers would be and, of course, it seems the two know each other very well.
Kristine from Darling Baker once again provided the amazing sweets. Look at those cookies!
What an amazing and wonderful and fun-filled day.
At this point, I am still suffering from PPD (Post Party Depression) and will likely be forced to turn my attention to another Pinteresting project to occupy my time.
Until then ... enjoy!
