Bridal Shower Centerpiece decoration
Today I finished up the decorations for my niece's bridal shower which will be next Saturday. I made a banner, I made pillow boxes emmbossed in hearts with daisies and butterflies for the favors, and I made this centerpiece today...Oh I also made 3 of my purse and compact sets for the door prizes.
Of course I forgot to take pictures of the banner and the party favors and they already got sent to my sister-in-law to set up for the shower BUT I did take pictures today of the finished centerpiece. I usually do all my party centerpieces in plastic pails as you can see by looking through my blog entries but of course a plastic pail is just not elegant enough for a bridal shower so I decided to stack these adorable matching boxes. I glued the top on on the lid of the middle and the same for the middle to lid of the largest. The boxes can still be used by the bride afterwards as home decor or for storage on her vanity. I used the wedding solution cartridge to get my images for the centerpiece die cuts. I tried to use as much shimmer paper and embossing details as I could to make it elegant and not just plain Jane for this centerpiece. I also added daisies in the bottom as the daisies and butterflies are her wedding theme in purple and silver. Finally I added the same ribbon we used on her wedding invitations to the bottom edge of each box and a few pearls and there it is....I love the way it turned out.
When I googled ideas for making bridal shower centerpieces I came up with hardly anything....I hope this will inspire others to make your own centerpieces. I will share pictures after next Saturday of the whole decoration set up so you can see how the colors, theme, etc came together and tied together.
