The house is a historic home with antique charm. Every room was tastefully decorated with antiques and vintage collections. The bridal shower decorations were simple and fun. Using cookie cutters, our host cut out the dress shapes and strung them up with blue ribbon around the fireplaces and other areas of the house.
There was so much delicious looking and tasting food. My sister likes to play Scrabble, so there were Cheez-It Scrabble crackers. I didn't even know Cheez-It made those, did you?
Of course there were desserts, so many to choose from, I must admit I tried a bit of everything. The bride and groom cupcake toppers were a cute touch.
Outside was a dress made out of chicken wire. The wire was spray painted white and formed into a dress shape, held together with more wire. White and blue ribbon were used to create a sash around the waist along with some fresh flowers.
Once inside, the bride to be did some mingling and we all did lots and lots of eating before getting down to the business of opening presents. There were lots and lots of presents to be opened, mostly household things she had registered for. The two pictured below I thought were a nice personal touch and something you couldn't really put on a registry list. So if you are in need of a bridal shower or wedding gift idea, consider a personalized hanger or framing the wedding invitation.
This was a very elegant bridal shower pulled together by some amazing ladies.
The entire house was beautiful and I have lots more pictures. I'll probably do a house tour in a later post. And of course I'll post about the wedding. The venue for that also has antique charm and a vintage feel.
