Here are some pics from a bridal shower I recently hosted for my BFF. It was an 'iced tea party' and we enjoyed a nice picnic in the park. We got so lucky with some early summer sunshine here in Portland!!
Just a quick side note: when I went to the fabric store and bought all these YARDS of hot-pink burlap...every single person in the store commented "wow! someone finally is buying the hot-pink burlap! that's been here forever, you're the first! what on earth are you going to use it for?" Apparently, hot-pink burlap isn't too popular; but I think this was the perfect use for it!
Above; bird mugs found at various thrift stores through the years. Below; all the guests brought a family heirloom recipe we complied for the bride-to-be.
Above, the spread of food and gifts and up above the paper banner I crafted to add some whimsy.
Above; fresh fruit and a peek at the 'prizes': handmade stationary packaged with tea.
Above; assorted iced teas and below; a glimpse of the paper flowers I crafted for the event. The silver pitcher, above, was another thrift-store find monogrammed with a "B"! Perfect!
