My mother in law also loves to entertain, we enjoy talking about and planning parties together. This past weekend I helped her throw a bridal shower at her home for our soon to be a newest family member. Our theme for this bridal shower was "Love Birds", you know, every good shower needs a theme! Below are some pictures to give you ideas for when you are planning your special event.
Going with the love bird theme origami birds were hung from light fixtures.
The colors were chosen based on the centerpiece, a "wedding cake" made from the towels & shower curtain the bride registered for. To add a little "sparkle" the cake was adorned with glittery bath accessories and organza ribbon. My mother in law did a wonderful job creating this, and we both agreed it was her most stunning cake yet!
Truffles is a baking business started by two close friends of mine, yay Dana & Haley!! I just love that they turned their passion to bake into a job they truly enjoy. They provide "sweet treats for all your special events". Truffles treats are so yummy, and include many flavors of cake balls (we got lemon with white chocolate, and for the favors had york peppermint dipped in dark chocolate), specialty cupcakes & cakes. For orders or questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or find Truffles on Facebook.
Lastly, I want to encourage you to really enjoy hosting your event. Do as much as you can do the day before so you can enjoy your friends or family on the day of, and don't be afraid to ask others to lend a hand. I look forward to posting many more ideas on simple entertaining.
Emma (my 8 month old daughter) and I all ready for the party to start!
