Shower Time!

My amazing sister-in-law Beth is getting married next month!! Her bridesmaids (including moi) put this adorable shower together! Everyone did an amazing job with their crafts and foods, it was so fun to plan and to attend!!

 I put this wreath together starting with the grapevine, added the burlap flowers with floral wire. The "H" is a wooden letter from Hobby Lobby and I totally scored with the Chevron scrapbook paper (also a Hobby Lobby find)!! Because I can't make bows the ribbon has wire in it and I spiraled it to make it fancy ;-)
 Susanna made these dot streamers with circle cut outs and thread, they looked so great hanging from the mirror! 

 These letters are spray painted with Rust-Oleum "Eden".  The B's and heart are hot glued to natural burlap. I left the glass out of this 11x14 frame that is painted with Rust-Oleum "Antique"

This frame and the one below are pained the same "Eden" color, but the pictures were taken at different times of the day. I used stencils to make the off white heart and charcoal letters.

 Wedding date!!

Cucumber Shooters: I used a potato peeler to make the lines, and then cut the ends off the cucumbers and sliced them into 4ths.  Next was the melon baller (which apparently I don't own, so I used a tsp scoop) it should end up about the size of a shot glass with the bottom still in tact.  I filled them with chicken salad: canned chicken, mayo, walnuts, and a little mustard.

 Kate picked up these perfect initial mugs from Anthropologie.

 Susanna cut up a million fruits to fill all the clear cups, it was such a great way to add lots of color to the table, and it made it easier that they were individual servings.

 Mandy made 3 different flavers of pancake muffins! There was chocolate chip, gingerbread, and pumpkin!

 Kate made the bacon bundles on the left (pretty sure I ate about 20 of them), on the right are pastry puffs filled with avocado, salsa, and greek yogurt, they were really tasty!

 The center of the back are egg muffins, with peppers and sausage made by Mandy. Teal created the cake pop stand (and a majority of the pops;-)) she covered styrofoam with green chevron paper from Hobby Lobby, it matched the party perfectly! 

Teal also made the tissue paper balls (which I have yet to attempt!)

This banner was made with white & natural burlap and stenciled with charcoal paint, and then hot glued to twine.

LOVE the mimosa bar! We had three different kinds of juice, orange, blood orange, and pink lemonade. The runner is green chevron and natural burlap.
Party Favors! 8oz mason jars filled with homemade sugar scrub, chevron paper on the lid, a thank you note tied with twine and a little scoop.

Sugar Scrub: 1 cup of sugar to a half cup of olive oil and ten drops of essential oil. We had peppermint, lemon, and lavender.  I get my essential oils from DoTerra. 

The labels were printed on a full sheet of labels and cut to size. They say Beth's Bridal Shower, along with the date and "flavor" of the scrub!
