Kate’s Shower

28 May

I have literally been planning Kate’s bridal shower since the day she was born.  Maybe not so much in the teenage years, but since I’ve domesticated myself, it’s been on.  And this was the year.

The theme was pink, pink, and pink, with a little more pink.  But not just any pink, “Titanic Pink.”  Well, at least that’s what the 10 dozen roses were named.  We had everything from paper topiaries to 20 yards of pink tulle to her name spelled out in wooden letters on the mantle.

Each guest was asked to bring 1/4 to 1/2 yard of quilting quality fabric to be a part of a wedding quilt for Kate and Brandon.  They were also asked to pre-address their thank you note.  Probably not something Emily Post would approve of, but hey–c’est la vie.  (That’s life, for you non-Southern Louisiana or French-speaking folk)  Engagement photos of Kate and Brandon were placed throughout the house.  And then we had fabric charms for favors.

We played bridal shower bingo, where you filled in the gifts you thought she would get ahead of time, and then played normal bingo.  Kate also pulled two thank you notes out of the basket for prizes!

We served all desserts–a blueberry cake, a chocolate truffle cake, chocolate covered strawberries, nuts, lemon curd tarts, fruit skewers and cheesecake bites.  Brandon’s sister Amber also made these beautiful cupcake pops.  They were adorable and completely delicious!!  Then we had rose petal punch, coffee and iced and hot tea.  So much fun!!!

    This post was so inspiring. Especially since my sister is getting married this summer and I have a shower to plan as well. I am most interested in the rose topiary. How did you make that? It is gorgeous. I would love to have directions. Thanks so much:)
