I recently planned a bridal shower for my sister so I searched online to get some ideas and design inspiration. I found a number of vendors with some great handmade products but being the crafter that I am, I decided to try and make some of the decorative items myself. Here are some of the DIY decorations that I created for the event.
Since we were having brunch at an Italian restaurant in the fall, I decided to go with a rustic Italian theme. I used a color palette of ivory, mossy green and light brown. I made table centerpieces using sunflowers, mums and hydrangeas arranged in empty colorfully labeled tomato cans. To decorate the gift table, I made a large paper mache letter (the letter of her new last name) covered in silk flowers. I trimmed both the gift and dessert tables with a fabric garland that I made from tying strips of burlap, ribbon and tulle onto twine. The favors were Italian soaps wrapped in burlap with brown paper heart tags that were stamped with “Thank You” and displayed in a large sunflower print cardboard box.
I shared my DIY decorations, now it’s your turn! Are you making anything fun and interesting for an upcoming shower or wedding?
